The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes’, like all the other collections, is a must read for every mystery fan. As always, some stories are better than others, but all are pure Sherlock at his best. While not the most famous of Sherlock’s cases, Shoscombe Old Place and The Illustrious Client are excellent examples of the Sherlock canon, while The Blanched Soldier and The Lion’s Mane, both narrated by Holmes, are unique variations on a tried and true format. He explained that he had written enough about Holmes and Watson so he said goodbye to them. However, he hoped that his readers will remember those characters for a long time.

A concoction of twelve stories, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the third book in the original Sherlock Holmes series. 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.

Whatever Sir Conan Doyle intended, Holmes is a fascinating character. I read The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen challenge, which includes the final short story in the collection, The Final Problem, which is all about arch-villain James Moriarty. But I couldn’t see reading a single short story when I could read the whole book

The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes: This volume is the last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. Doyle bids farewell to his most famous character in the preface.

The stories are of course top notch, a legible typeface was used, the book is bound nicely with apparently high quality paper, good cover art, and some good pen and ink drawings that relate to the stories. The bad. . . There is no table of contents, and the stories start on the same page the previous story ended on, even if there is only enough room for the title. Without story names on the top of each page within the story, this makes finding any particular story difficult unless you just read them straight through and use a book mark. This was disappointing and irritating, since the book is priced comparable to its competitors (I made my own TOC as a bookmark, so I'm keeping the book). ????

I love the quality of the book, but was hoping for illustrations. The description of the book series led me to believe they were in there.

I do love these pocket-sized clothbound books. I have a collection of books with fine bindings, but they can be cumbersome to read or too fancy to be portable.

Good alternative to Kindle. Wish they were bound in the USA rather than China.

A huge deviation from the Victorian/Edwardian era Holmes story's. Doyle is able to keep up with the times here. S.H. is sarcastic, witty, and a PI of the 20th Century. These were written in the era of Black Mask Mystery Magazine, Dashiell Hammett and the new Hardboiled Private Eye of fiction. This is more like the Holmes of the popular BBC series running now. The purist here seem to like the old style Holmes much more (judging by the reviews). I think this collection to be a refreshing break, and a more multi-dimensional Detective.

As others have noted, the stories here aren't up to par with Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes mysteries. If you're a huge Holmes fan, you might find them interesting. Those who haven't yet been introduced to Holmes and Watson should opt for the earlier works.

This is the final set of Sherlock Holmes short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Like the other stories Sherlock seems to be one step ahead of everyone else in finding the solution to the mystery. However, in a unique way of telling some of these stories the narrator is Sherlock Holmes himself and not John Watson as is usually the case.

Long a fan of Doyle's from the time a teacher pit one the Holmes tomes in my hand. One of the masters of first person.

As my previous reviews of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books on Sherlock Holmes, this too was an excellent read. Just when I thought that I had read all of Doyle's writings on him, I happily discovered more. Again, if you are a fan, one never tires of reading about Sherlock Holmes' keen skill at attention to details in solving crimes. This book was no exception! Each story was well developed. I enjoy the fact that I can read one of his stories in one or two sittings. I hope I find more stories. Well done, Doyle!
Very enjoyable
