The extraordinary adventures of the world-famous detective Sherlock Holmes, as faithfully recounted by his comrade, Dr. Watson, have captivated readers of all ages for over a century. The stories' blend of heartpounding, fast-paced action and mind-boggling deductive reasoning is as riveting today as it was when first published.This deluxe illustrated edition contains Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first twelve stories and includes such famous cases as "The Red-headed League," in which Holmes uncovers a well-concealed, devilishly clever criminal plot; "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," in which Holmes must trap a jewel thief--with astonishing results; "The Adventure of the Speckled Band," in which Holmes and Watson find themselves dealing with treachery, violence, and deadly snakes; and nine more equally thrilling and puzzling mysteries.Magnificently illustrated with twelve powerful watercolors by award-winning artist Barry Moser, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes features the complete text of the original collection of Doyle's short stories and is an ideal introduction to the fascinating world of this mesmerizing detective.

4.0 "Przygody Sherlocka Holmesa" Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Po roku przerwy wracam do przygód najsłynniejszego detektywa wszech czasów. Po pierwszych dwóch powieściach przyszedł czas na zbiór opowiadań. Czy warto sięgać po tą pozycję?

3.0 The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
This one contains some of the most famous stories of the Sherlockian canon (such as A Scandal in Bohemia, The Speckled Band, and The Red-Headed League), but it has also its fair share of the less brilliant. Five Orange Pips is certainly lame; everyone acts stupidly there, starting with the criminals...

4.0 Przygody Sherlocka Holmesa
Myślę, że nie muszę nikomu przedstawiać Sherlocka Holmesa ani jego wiernego przyjaciela i kompana doktora Watsona. Jest to para charakterystyczna, niewątpliwie dopełniają się nawzajem. Można się z nimi świetnie bawić a ich dialogi bywają barwne. Sama już nie wiem, którego z tych panów lubię bardziej...

5.0 The Adventure of the Speckled Band
Happy Halloween Bingo 2016 everyone! My first post, my first square - Creepy Crawlies. I chose The Adventure of the Speckled Band from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It's a re-read but it's easily one of my top 5 favourites of the Holmes canon. A young woman living under the repression of...

3.0 The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
This is filled with several short stories. They were interesting and live up to the adventures part of the title. I believe the shortness of the stories made me not get into them as much. I still liked them for sure.
