The Extraordinary Cases of Sherlock Holmes – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The Extraordinary Cases of Sherlock Holmes
The Extraordinary Cases of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

You may be good, but Sherlock Holmes is better. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle weaves unusual and fantastical tales about the globally beloved detective in this collection of stories. Each is short and can be devoured in less than an hour. They are some of his more famous short works and highly enjoyable.

Doyle paints a narrative through the eyes of Holmes’ companion, Dr. Watson and makes the tale more accessible to the average reader. Holmes’ sharp mannerisms and lofty thoughts would not be as intriguing if Watson’s nobler sentiments and smoothing words did not soften him. Each mystery slowly unfolds before the reader’s eyes and if their powers of deduction are keen, they may even discover some clues or Holmes’ motives before they’re expressly detailed.

The adventures of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson were beloved in their time and are now classics for a reason. This is a wonderful collection of stories and highly recommended to fans of detective stories, classic novels, or have never read a story about Sherlock Holmes before and wish to give them a shot. (You won’t be disappointed.)
