It was nice to read some non-fiction for a change. ( )

Even though Doyle wrote two novels before these twelve stories, for me, it all begins with this book and the first short story “A Scandal in Bohemia.“ If you're new to the world of Holmes and Watson, this is the book to start with. Twelve masterful short stories that have most of the best of the Holmes canon. I don't know how many times I've read these, but I keep rereading and will keep rereading for as long as I can. I am truly #sherlocked. ( )

Holmes and Watson come alive in short stories. Someone (who, I wish I'd recall) once said that if you only read Agatha Christie's short stories, and Conan Doyle's novels, you'd think both were terrible writers. It certainly seems true in Conan Doyle's case (from the two I've read thus far).

Either way, of the twelve stories in this collection, all of them are quite enjoyable. They showcase a slightly more even relationship between the two heroes, as well as featurnig a varied array of guest characters, and mysteries which Conan Doyle easily shifts from political intrigue, to international conspiracy, to simple mistaken identity. In fact, the only story that I don't think really works anymore is "The Five Orange Pips" - and this is only because it has dated to the point where the killer's identity was something new and curious in the 1800s, but is now quite commonly known by most Westerners, meaning that most readers will probably catch on from about page three.

After this, I have renewed vigour to move on to the 4th of Holmes' 9-book canon. We'll see! ( )

This is the third book featuring master detective Sherlock Holmes. Unlike the first two, which were stand-alone novellas, this collects twelve short stories. Among them are such memorable tales as “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” and “A Scandal in Bohemia,” which leads off the collection. It also contains some lesser achievements. Even Holmes remarks in the final story about Watson’s tendency to write up the more trivial cases. However, he concedes that these sometimes present the most curious puzzles. Nothing delights him more than what he calls a three-pipe problem.
Throughout, Holmes displays his attention to detail, often mystifying Watson, who sees but does not observe. Many cases feature beautiful young females of pure character in mortal danger. This chivalrous view of womanhood somehow includes the seeming exception, Irene Adler. Other hallmarks of a Holmes yarn recur, such as the love of disguise; not only does Holmes adopt one in several stories, but he expresses his admiration of someone else’s use of one. There are instances of maiming; the engineer’s thumb is a particularly gruesome instance. Oddly, Doyle doesn’t seem to have settled on the identity of their housekeeper; Mrs. Hudson appears in only one story.
I continue to be struck by the frequent plot device of a crime (set in an exotic locale) before the local crime recounted in the story itself. This backstory often makes Holmes indifferent to whether the culprit has to face justice.
Holmesians sometimes ponder the incompatibility of Holmes, whose powers of rational deduction match those of his detection, as a creation of Doyle, who in later years championed spiritualism. But Holmes remarks: “Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. . . . There is nothing so unnatural as the commonplace.”
I enjoy becoming reacquainted with these tales sixty years after first devouring them. ( )

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of twelve short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, first published on 14 October 1892. It contains the earliest short stories featuring the consulting detective Sherlock Holmes, which had been published in twelve monthly issues of The Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. The stories are collected in the same sequence, which is not supported by any fictional chronology. The only characters common to all twelve are Holmes and Dr. Watson and all are related in first-person narrative from Watson's point of view.

In general the stories in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes identify, and try to correct, social injustices. Holmes is portrayed as offering a new, fairer sense of justice. The stories were well received, and boosted the subscriptions figures of The Strand Magazine, prompting Doyle to be able to demand more money for his next set of stories. The first story, "A Scandal in Bohemia", includes the character of Irene Adler (perhaps, next to Holmes and Watson, Doyle's most fascinating character), who, despite being featured only within this one story by Doyle, is a prominent character in modern Sherlock Holmes adaptations, generally as a love interest for Holmes. Doyle included four of the twelve stories from this collection in his twelve favorite Sherlock Holmes stories, picking "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" as his overall favorite. ( )

'You have the grand gift of silence, Watson,' said he. 'It makes you quite invaluable as a companion.'
'I think, Watson, that you are now standing in the presence of one of the most absolute fools in Europe. I deserve to be kicked from here to Charing Cross.'
'Crime is common. Logic is rare.'
'Data! data! data!' he cried impatiently. 'I can't make bricks without clay.'
'If I claim full justice for my art, it is because it is an impersonal thing – a thing beyond myself. Crime is common. Logic is rare. Therefore it is upon the logic rather than upon the crime that you should dwell. You have degraded what should have been a course of lectures into a series of tales.'
