5.0 étoiles sur 5 Complete collection = sooo many stories 1 septembre 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Enough to keep anyone busy for a long time. Contrary to comments on Amazon.com, the Casebook of Sherlock Holmes is now included, meaning that you won't find any canon Holmes by A. Conan Doyle that is not included in here.
The stories are very good, you never get sick of them despite Holmes being too intelligent to be real (I did not work out a single one before the reveal) and Watson being too thick to be real.
Pity Doyle never wrote more Holmes. ;)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the classic detective 19 août 2013
Par Daniel J. Connelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read most of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes as a kid in ad hoc fashion, and downloaded this collection only because it was essentially free, because I wanted to compare Lyndsay Faye's Holmsian style in Dust and Darkness (2009) to the original.

But once through A Study in Scarlett I was hooked once again, and couldn't stop until I got to the end of this collection. It was great having them chronologically arranged by publication date since stories refer to previous stories in this sequence but of course never to future ones, even though the stories are not in "actual" time order.

To this edition: the table of contents, both of the compendium and the individual books, work nicely. There's some flaws in it all, however. An obvious is The Last Bow contains only the short story, while the other stories in the eponymous collection are mysteriously missing. The other is there's some unfortunate omissions: the cryptograms in The Dancing Men, and a truncated telegram in The Missing Three Quarter. Additionally the Casebook of Sherlock Holmes is intentionally missing thanks to the Mickey Mouse Act's extension of copyright in the US.

But the Last Bow collection is readily available for the same price, and the Casebook's not hard to find, so these are easily enough remedied. I recommend grabbing The Dancing Men from another source since it's unfortunately to read it without the key element of the story.

Holmes, given the time it was written, is absolutely brilliant work. Indeed in comparison other fictional detective appear bumbling fools, ignoring obvious opportunities for clues in an apparent effort to pad out the full length of their book. Doyle's books are probably more noteworthy than his novels, although the latter are certainly excellent as well, but its within the confines of a short story that Holmes' genius is most distilled. Holmes is so quick to solve cases that even the books are prone to extensive back-story as an appendix, an approach used in Study in Scarlett and The Valley of Fear. These appendixes, representing a perhaps sensational view of Western life in the United States, are excellent reading but seem somewhat out of place today, while the rest of Holmes, remarkably, seems hardly dated except for its relatively formal speech.

Despite how much I love these works, Doyle does make some obvious oversights. For example, Watson's wife mysteriously disappears after The Memoirs, freeing Watson to rejoin Holmes at Baker Street (it's later explained she died in one of the late stories not in this collection). And Holmes describes certain characters in the Valley of Fear, which takes place early in his career, to Watson when Watson is clearly unaware of these characters in short stories which take place much later. But I have to forgive Doyle these inter-book flaws, since the quality of each of the works taken alone is so spectacular.

So I strongly recommend this collection, with the exceptions I described: Dancing Men, Missing Three Quarter, and the collections The Last Bow and the Casebook.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A nicely designed edition of _almost_ all of the Sherlock Holmes stories 19 décembre 2013
Par Karen S. Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is an almost complete set of the Sherlock Holmes stories. My review is only 4 starts because the last story collection published, The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, is not included. (I was really annoyed to find, after buying this, that the Kindle store's description of the book deliberately obscures this, and presents the book as a complete set.)

However, this is a very readable edition. The design and typography are easy on the eyes, so long reading sessions are no problem. It's a good and very affordable omnibus for any fan who wants nearly all the stories in one place. No illustrations or annotations; this is purely for the pleasure of reading and rereading the stories.

If you're new to Sherlock Holmes, this is a good choice, too, because the stories are presented in the order they were published, and though one collection of late stories is missing, the very last story, His Last Bow, is included.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Collection! 16 juillet 2013

If you're interested in getting to know Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, this book is a good way. In fact, I had read Conan Doyle before, but this book brings his novels and short stories in the order they were published. By this way, the reader starts to get to know the characters and their features little by little as they evolve through the stories. Besides, Sherlock Holmes: The Ultimate Collection offers a very good range of other references which are quite helpful, mainly when you're looking for different sourcers to attract students' attention to this great character.

I have never been much of a mystery fan, but I have greatly enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes series. I find the stories extremely easy to follow and I think the details of each case are presented in such an intriguing way. I also found this particular electronic edition very easy to navigate. I haven't spotted any grammatical or other errors. I am so pleased with how much reading I was able to do for only .99 cents! A great value!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sherlock and Watson: Modern characters in modern stories 26 novembre 2014
Par K. Adele - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Fantastic collection. It contains all of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories. I read the collection in its entirety over a stretch of six weeks. When I completed the last story, I felt saddened that I was losing an old friend ... at least until the next time I revisit the stories two or three years from now. While I had read several Sherlock Holmes stories many years ago, my image of him and his adventures was heavily colored by the old black and white Basil Rathbone films, which portrayed Holmes, Watson, the victims, villains and police as cardboard cutouts. I found him mildly amusing. The accounts themselves struck me as period pieces, stodgy products of Victorian England. In my recent reading of the Holmes corpus, I experienced an entirely different feeling. The stories are quite modern. The psychology of the characters is carefully explored. For all of his self-assurance, braggadocio, and bombast, Holmes is often a lonely person, prone to melancholy and insecurity. A close look at his sidekick, Dr. John Watson, shows him to be an intriguing character. He is a wounded warrior from the Afghan wars (sound contemporary?). His dedication to Holmes seems almost masochistic, but is not truly selfless: Sherlock provides him with ample material for his regular "blogs" reported in the newspapers. We discover that Watson's personal following by readers grew substantially over the years -- his readers gave him many "likes." In fact, it grows clear that Holmes' fame is inextricably tied to Watson's newspaper recounting of his adventures.
On a personal level, I found that the Sherlock Holmes stories served the same function as weekly detective programs, such as NCIS, Law and Order, and Criminal Intent. Each story takes about 35-45 minutes to read. In that time period, we are presented a fully developed accounting of a mystery, from its obscure beginnings, to an emerging understanding of the crime, to an awareness that our first impressions are misleading, to a brilliant resolution of the crime at the very end. All this without commercial interruptions. And the story development, character development, and writing is so much better than what current television fare offers.
