THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is a collection of twelve short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring his fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. It was first published on 14 October 1892, though the individual stories had been serialised in The Strand Magazine between June 1891 and July 1892. The stories are not in chronological order, and the only characters common to all twelve are Holmes and Dr. Watson. As with all but four of the Sherlock Holmes stories, those contained within The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes are told by a first-person narrative from the point of view of Dr. Watson.In general, the stories in THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES identify, and try to correct, social injustices. Holmes is portrayed as offering a new, fairer sense of justice. The stories were well received, and boosted the subscriptions figures of The Strand Magazine, prompting Doyle to be able to demand more money for his next set of stories. The first story, 'A Scandal in Bohemia', includes the character of Irene Adler, who, despite being featured only within this one story by Doyle, is a prominent character in modern Sherlock Holmes adaptations, generally as a love interest for Holmes. Doyle included four of the twelve stories from this collection in his twelve favourite Sherlock Holmes stories, picking 'The Adventure of the Speckled Band' as his overall favourite. (more at wisehouse-classics.com)

4.0 Nice Bound Collection of Some of the Short Stories Starring Sherlock Holmes
This collection of short stories by Barnes and Noble was worth the price. I loved the sparkly cover (the lettering is in silver) and there are also illustrations included. The pages are nicely edged as well and it comes with it's own personal bookmark. That said, I enjoyed all of the stories, though...

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? Czy w dzisiejszych czasach przygody Sherlocka są dalej aktualne? Czy facet, który ma na imię Conan i tytuł szlachecki mógłby ...

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...

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...
