Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in all fiction, and his adventures are among the finest capers committed to the printed page. Rightly regarded as the Great Detective, Holmes sees clues that others overlook, and displays skills of detection that are nearly as uncanny as they are . . . elementary.
The Greatest Adventures of Sherlock Holmes collects forty-eight classic tales, including the full-length novels "A Study in Scarlet," "The Sign of the Four," "The Hound of the Baskervilles," and "The Valley of Fear." In addition, it features forty-four short masterpieces of detective fiction, among them "The Speckled Band," "A Scandal in Bohemia," "His Last Bow," and "The Final Problem." This collection of superb stories is your passport to 221B Baker, where Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick, Dr. Watson, explore some of the most baffling crimes ever committed--and where the game is always afoot.

All the stories are brilliant. The author will keep you clueless until the end of each case, and it is just fascinating how Sherlock Holmes is able to solve all the mysteries as if they were child´s play. I really really REALLY recommend this book, the stories are not complicated nor hard to follow. I think Sherlock Holmes is not only the best detective in history, but one of the biggest and brightest minds in all literature, he will make a mystery turn from unsolvable to simplicity itslef.

This is a great book itself, but the only problem I had with this is that it was delivered to the wrong place twice, along with two other books, where one of them I have still yet to receive. I know how the book is delivered is not their fault, but I am still upset with this. Other than that, this book is a really good collection of stories.

The contents are good. I was very annoyed with the size of the letters. Very tiny and Its almost hard to read. I just wish they had increased the font size. It felt like everything was crammed. Took the taste out of reading but the contents of course are good.
