The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes
The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes | Arthur Conan Doyle
Sherlock Holmes is not only the most famous character in crime fiction, but arguably the most famous character in all fiction. In sixty adventures that pit his extraordinary wits and courage against foreign spies, blackmailers, cultists, petty thieves, murderers, swindlers, policemen (both stupid and clever), and his arch-nemesis Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes, together with his faithful sidekick Doctor John H. Watson, proves himself to be not only the quintessential detective but also the most engaging and entertaining company any reader could ask for. This beautiful new edition contains a new foreword by Ruth Rendell

Any other Sherlockian littens listen to this excellent podcast? It‘s one of my faves. The hosts pick something vague from the canon and expound upon it and how it affects the stories.

Readage I just finished my first Sherlock Holmes this morning. I'll have to check out this podcast!! 1mo

sidherinn I‘m thrilled he included The Great Mouse Detective! That was hands down my favorite as a munchkin and I just introduced it to my niece and nephew. I also grew up listening to the Rathbone-Bruce radio dramas on long car trips. I might rearrange the rest in order some, but I agree, the first three are spot on! Thanks for sharing! 7mo
wanderinglynn I don‘t disagree with the top 3, but I would put Elementary (#12) above Sherlock Holmes played by Robert Downey, Jr. (#9). 7mo
Mitch @wanderinglynn yes maybe.... there‘s been some fab episodes and a few not so fab! We‘ve just started the new season ( with blonde hair!) 7mo

Eyelit Yes!! 💯 7mo
DGRachel I‘m afraid I have to respectfully disagree with this list. I‘ve never been a fan of Jeremy Brett. I would flip 1 & 3. Basil Rathbone will always be my Sherlock Holmes. 😍 And I, too, am happy the list includes The Great Mouse Detective. It‘s one of my favorite animated films. 7mo
MaleficentBookDragon I'd nove Christopher Lee up just because he is amazing in anything. 7mo
Mitch @DGRachel Basil Rathbone in Hound of The Baskervilles is my all time classic favourite! 👏🏼 7mo

Have I mentioned that I‘m a fan of Sherlock Holmes since forever? Complete works & translated box set here and I also have an audiobook by Stephen Fry plus two or three comic books (as a gift from my father). I saw some Littens did a #sherlocked read a few years back. I think I‘ll be doing mine this year. 🤓🕵🏻‍♂️💪🏼

Sarah83 Looks great. I am also a great fan. 😍🤩 7mo
Lady_Tigana_20 My mom is a huge fan, but I‘m slightly embarrassed to admit I‘ve only read THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. ONE DAY I‘ll remedy that. I am, however, reading a series by Sherry Thomas in which Sherlock is actually a woman: A STUDY IN SCARLET WOMEN. 7mo
pppooraikul @Sarah83 Thanks! 😁🙌🏼 Interested in rereading? 😉 7mo

pppooraikul @Lady_Tigana_20 That sounds very intriguing! I‘ll keep my eyes open for your opinion on that one. 👀 7mo
Sarah83 @pppooraikul for sure. But I have several buddyreads coming up. Would September suit you? Or is this too late for you? 7mo
pppooraikul @Sarah83 I guess that‘ll be too late for me bc I already started. So sorry. 😢 However, I‘m not gonna rush and I‘ll keep updating my progress. If you catch up please tell me and we could read some together! 😁😁 7mo
Sarah83 @pppooraikul do you read the short stories or the books first? 😍🤩 7mo
pppooraikul I read by goodreads order. A Study in Scarlet >> The Sign of Four >> The Adventures >> The Memoirs >> The Hound >> The Return >> The Valley of Fear >> His Last Bow 😁 7mo

I love all Sherlock Holmes so this is no surprise. I particularly enjoyed the Red Headed League and the Adventure of the Copper Beaches. But what‘s not to love?

I‘ve decided 2019 is the year I will read all of the Sherlock stories. Most of these will be new to me as I only have memories of reading The Hound of the Baskervilles in my youth, however I expect some to be familiar given my love of the BBC series.

Even though they are short stories, the prose is dense and I‘m reading them slowly. Here‘s hoping I can stick to one story a week🤞🏻

I watched the show before reading the book and I found the shows and movie to be better than this book. Without giving too many spoilers I feel like it didn't give enough details for the story that unfolded to make sense.

I haven't read the Sherlock Holmes book YET (is it a book or series of books? I don't even know) but I LOVE the Benedict Cumberbatch series SO MUCH so it was a major thrill when my friend gave me this Baker Street ticket from her recent trip to England !!! Baker Street will be my first stop if I ever get a chance to go.

Sarah83 It is a series. Four novels and about fifty short stories. 3y
mom2bugnbee My daughter is going on a school trip to England/Ireland/Scotland/Paris next summer. They have one free day in London. She's already planning her day of finding as many sites from "Sherlock" as possible (Speedy Café, the real Baker St, the fake 221B Baker St, etc.). My second favorite TV series ever, only behind M*A*S*H. 3y
