The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Summary

An Apple Books Classic

You get not one, not two, but 25 gripping mysteries in Arthur Conan Doyle’s first of five collections of Sherlock Holmes short stories. Follow the brilliant and eccentric Holmes and his loyal sidekick, Dr. Watson, as they journey to lavish country estates to investigate baffling cases involving indiscreet royal affairs, cheetahs, redheads, and gypsies. Every one of Conan Doyle’s tales is full of surprising - but always logical - twists. (Fun fact: This book includes “The Speckled Band,” the author’s self-proclaimed favorite of all of his Sherlock Holmes short stories.)

Interesting5 star

I had never read this book before. But it’s interesting.55


Loved the short stories5 star

This was a great book, I was immediately interested. There are some chapters that are a bit slower, and even though I read them, they weren’t as interesting as the others. The great thing about this collection is that if you don’t like a story, move on to the next one. I would recommend The Speckled Band as the best on in there.55


The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes5 star

Having been a fan of the movies, I was interested in reading this book. The writing was a challenge to sometimes comprehend, due to English ways of description in the 1870’s - 1890’s. However, character development was by far excellent, along with storyline. Highly recommended reading puts you in England alongside Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes, for many cases to solve!55
