The Complete Novels and Stories
Since his first appearance in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created. Now, in two paperback volumes, Bantam presents all fifty-six short stories and four novels featuring Conan Doyle's classic hero--a truly complete collection of Sherlock Holmes's adventures in crime
Volume I includes the early novel A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the eccentric genius of Sherlock Holmes to the world. This baffling murder mystery, with the cryptic word Rache written in blood, first brought Holmes together with Dr. John Watson. Next, The Sign of Four presents Holmes's famous "seven percent solution" and the strange puzzle of Mary Morstan in the quintessential locked-room mystery.
Also included are Holmes's feats of extraordinary detection in such famous cases as the chilling " The Adventure of the Speckled Band," the baffling riddle of "The Musgrave Ritual," and the ingeniously plotted "The Five Orange Pips," tales that bring to life a Victorian England of horse-drawn cabs, fogs, and the famous lodgings at 221B Baker Street, where Sherlock Holmes earned his undisputed reputation as the greatest fictional detective of all time.

2 novels and 37 stories are all exciting, curious, sometimes tense and there are no boring stories.
Holmes and Watson, perfect partner & somehow funny bromance. These two men have strong ties and need each other. Although Holmes often shows the attitude that his analytical skills are superior to others, however, to Watson he often reveals that he needs Watson in his investigative activities.
Watson expressed his view several times that Holmes was more like a machine than a human. In fact, in some stories, Holmes is not a cold-hearted or anti-social person. He is indeed dominated by logical thinking rather than feeling. Even so, Holmes is a man who has high... See More
Tidak pernah bosan baca cerita Sherlock. Kemampuannya menyelesaikan semua masalah sangat luar biasa! Tidak rugi beli buku ini, tebal dan ada beberapa cerita dalam 1 buku.
I have come to love collections of stories and this one is great. I even enjoy the archaic language and mores in the stories. The price is unbeatable for this classic. Highly recommend.
Everyone must be familiar with the eccentric detective, Sherlock Holmes, but not everyone has read his true adventures. This book is one of the choice, it contains 2 of Holmes novels (A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four) and 3 short story collections (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes). From just one book, we can be acquainted with Sherlock Holmes in person and in work. From Dr. John Watson narrations, we're brought to 221B Baker Street, knowing Holmes' personality, habits, methods, and all.
For the two novels describe a big deal of that, the short stories give some little facts but still interesting.... See More
