The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics - -New introductions commissioned from today''s top writers and scholars - Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events -Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work -Comments by other famous authors -Study questions to challenge the reader''s viewpoints and expectations -Bibliographies for further reading -Indices & Glossaries, when appropriate. All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader''s understanding of these enduring works. The Complete Sherlock Holmes comprises four novels and fifty-six short stories revolving around the world''s most popular and influential fictional detective--the eccentric, arrogant, and ingenious Sherlock Holmes. He and his trusted friend, Dr. Watson, step from Holmes''s comfortable quarters at 221b Baker Street into the swirling fog of Victorian London to exercise that unique combination of detailed observation, vast knowledge, and brilliant deduction. Inevitably, Holmes rescues the innocent, confounds the guilty, and solves the most perplexing puzzles known to literature. The Complete Sherlock Holmes starts with Holmes's first appearance, A Study in Scarle, a chilling murder novel complete with bloodstained walls and cryptic clues, followed by the baffling The Sign of Four, which introduces Holmes's cocaine problem and Watson's future wife. The story collections The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes feature such renowned tales as "A Scandal in Bohemia," "The Red-Headed League," and "The Musgrave Ritual." Tired of writing stories about Holmes, his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, killed him off at the end of "The Final Problem," the last tale in The Memoirs. But the public outcry was so great that eight years later he published the masterful The Hound of the Baskervilles, which supposedly takes place before Holmes's death. The separate Volume II of The Complete Sherlock Holmes collects the remaining accounts of Holmes''s exploits, including "The Adventure of the Empty House," which reveals the elaborate circumstances behind Holmes''s literary resurrection. Kyle Freeman, a Sherlock Holmes enthusiast for many years, earned two graduate degrees in English literature from Columbia University, where his major was twentieth-century British literature.… (mere)

I didn't quite finish re-reading these before accompanying my friend to her Sherlock Holmes conference, so the collection ended up on the back burner briefly. But I had to come back to it. I still love these stories, except The Hound of the Baskervilles which I still basically hate. I'd hoped age would improve my opinion of it, but alas, no. Doyle's short stories are better than the novels in general, but that one in particular is just... bleh. A Scandal in Bohemia remains an absolute delight, and reading The Red Headed League and The Stock-Broker's Clerk after delving into the history of con artists was absolutely grin-inducing (for once, I felt more like Holmes than Watson).

I grew up loving Sherlock Holmes. I didn't get into him much until I discovered a book of Sherlock Holmes stories on my grandparents' bookshelves. I couldn't put the book down the whole visit and they let me take it with me. I read the stories cover-to-cover (though I've certainly not read all the stories Doyle ever wrote). I loved them and completely enjoyed Watson - he was my favorite (isn't he everyone's?). ( )

I am absolutely consumed by the Sherlock Holmes stories. They are constant companions I have returned to again and again throughout my life. So why not a five-star review? I deducted a star because this edition by Barnes and Noble is embarrassing. The design is fine, the copyediting is fine, but the guy they chose to write the introduction and provide notes is, well, a nobody in the incredibly erudite world of Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts. His credentials are not up to the standards I think a good commissioning editor would demand for someone providing contextual notes, the notes themselves are often inane. Expect a little more of your reader instead of drawing her out of the story by asterisking the phrase "making love" to tell me that the term, back then, in fact did not mean the act of sex but instead the act of wooing. Got it. Knew that. Even if I didn't, the context alone told me. The art of good annotation is to be unobtrusive and yet enlightening. I feel this guy was neither. I got definitions for commonplace words. I got admonishments for Doyle's minor mistakes in history or music (and I actually disagree with one of his criticisms about a Chopin piece, but I digress). I am sure the guy was trying to earn his keep by footnoting what he could, but I found the practice incredibly distracting, so I would recommend another edition. And now I am officially a crank. ( )

The world’s most revered and famous fictional detective first appeared from the pen of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle almost a 130 years ago, but the author did not finish with his greatest creation until almost 40 years later even after unsuccessfully killing him off. In this first volume of all the collected works that feature Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. John Watson, the reader first meets the great detective and his friend through two short novellas, 23 short stories, and the best-known and greatest case the pair ever faced.

The two-volume collection of the original works of Conan Doyle in the American publication order, begins with the first two Holmes novelettes Study in Scarlett and The Sign of Four which are very well written stories that both introduce the main character Holmes, but also through the eyes of his friend Watson. The next 23 short stories then show the genius and resource of the London-based detective and throughout we are given references to cases we have yet to personally read. Of the those short stories I found six the best of the bunch: “A Scandal in Bohemia”, “The Five Orange Pips”, “The Man with the Twisted Lip”, “Silver Blaze”, “The Musgrave Ritual, and “The Naval Treaty”.

This volume ends with the most famous and definitely the best Sherlock Holmes story of them all, The Hound of the Baskervilles. Even though there have been numerous adaptations of this most famous novel, upon reading it one senses the place on edge, nature seeming on the verge of overpowering man, and the sounds and shadows of mysterious beings across the moor. It was no small fact that nine years after killing off Holmes, Conan Doyle wrote a novel that no only brought make his character but wrote it in such a way that made people engage with both of the main characters instantly.

There seem to be several missteps, namely “The Final Problem” which seems more to do about setting up the final struggle as is to learn more about Professor Moriarty and see the net Holmes had cast instead of just being told. There are just as many of the other short stories that are not the best than there are very good if not great. Sometimes the eye is in the beholder, but others it is not.

Upon finishing this first volume, I enjoyed reading these 26 stories. As a first time reader of Conan Doyle it was fascinating to see how more human Sherlock seems to slowly become over the course of the stories with him as their focus. In the end I can’t stress enough how you should get this book. ( )
