A concoction of twelve stories, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the third book in the original Sherlock Holmes series. It shadows the experiences of detective Sherlock Holmes, an enigmatic genius, as he tries to unravel the mystery of each investigation he partakes in. Set in late 19th century London, the novel not only creates a successful mystery plot, but also circulates through real locations including Hyde Park, the river Thames, St George’s Church in Hanover Square, as well as adding fictional places to spice things up. The vibrant reoccurring illustrations of London’s means of transportation are also worth noting. The novel begins in the famous apartment 221B Baker Street, home to Sherlock Holmes who is visited by clients in need of assistance in resolving various issues. Unsurprisingly, Sherlock Holmes works his magic in order to find a logical solution to each mystery. Narrated through the perspective of Dr. Watson, Holmes’s close friend and companion, he serves as a monitor as he accompanies or is given a full account of the sequence of events surrounding investigation details. Watson then documents each adventure and shares it with the readers which in turn act as memoirs of Holmes’s achievements. This type of narration only enhances the sense of mystery surrounding each case because of the occasional missing detail and leaves the reader wondering about the next course of action. Interestingly, Holmes offers logical explanations for each of his solutions, but nevertheless manages to keep the audience on their toes. Family fortune, reputation, social status and moral weakness are just some of the themes Doyle explores in his novel of suspense and mystery. Doyle’s use of 19th century English jargon proves to be a delightful read, whilst still maintaining a lucid style easy to follow and understand. For those embarking on their first ever encounter with the pipe-smoking, violin-playing sleuth, this is just the beginning of an unforgettable journey.

Awesome recording - could completely get the hang of the character description. Great adventures as usual - nothing beats Sherlock Holmes.


- The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Great book and not a bad reading. Started off a little shaky but quickly got into his stride and became very enjoyable.


Can all the Americans/Canadians who will be reading Sherlock Holmes stories in the future just remember that the L in Holmes is silent and pronounced "homes" not "holl-mes".

Mel aka Sherlock Luvah

- Dig that Sherlock and Watson too

What an amazing mind that Sherlock Holmes has. And what dedication his dear friend Watson portrays. Here's to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. One of the greatest write ever lived. Ranks up there with Robert Louis Stevenson, Edgar Alan Poe, Mary Shelly and others of that time.


- Arthur Conan Doyle

Greatest writer ever!


- Sherlock

I love sherlock!


- Sherlock!

Sherlock's always right! I love the way that everything always falls into place! I love this book!
