Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Illustrated Short Stories

By Arthur Conan Doyle

Rating: 4 stars

This is a lovely volume of Sherlock Holmes stories, all with the original illustrations. I’m not sure that there’s a huge amount to say about the stories themselves, beyond the obvious. Watson is a likeable everyman narrator who puts up with Holmes smugness better than most people would, and some of the deductions seem a little tenuous to me, but that detracts nothing from them. To me, Conan Doyle’s detective is as readable as he ever was and the companion volume containing the four Holmes novels is on my shelf, to be tackled soon (although after fifty-six stories, I may need a break first).
