I hate it
By alyssa lee peyton
To me it was really boring and I always reAd ahead in 12 grade history
Some of the adventures were hard to get into but over all it was a good book. I am reading the classics and I considered this one of them. Enjoy!!

It was a good book it also tasted good
I love Sherlock Holmes and was ecstatic to find I could download my favourite Sherlock stories for free! Love it!
Bored bored bored
Good ole Sherlock
I've always heard how good theses stories are, but never took the time to read them. The stylistic writing of the time, the density of the story, and the persistence with which they are revealed are better than any crime novel out there. Hats off to Arthur Conan Doyle
It was absolutely garbage
Good times, 19th-century style
Lots of fun in its old-fashioned way, and not dry or staid, as I thought when I first read these 20 or so years ago. In fact Doyle's writing is more descriptive and insightful, and at times wry, than I ever game him credit for.
Maybe you can see the solutions coming -- or maybe that's just my half-remembering from decades ago -- but they're still a lot of fun.
It's a good idea to have Wikipedia handy for some references that nobody knows anymore. Enriching!
