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

This morning I saw discussion posts & realized I had kind of forgotten about The Sign of the Four this month. Luckily it‘s not too long, so it was a perfect listen while I worked around the house & took a walk with my own hound. The inclusion of Toby is one of the things I really enjoy in this story. I found it much more interesting & entertaining than A Study in Scarlet.

Being the self-confessed Sherlock Holmes maniac that I am, since Conan Doyle is no longer alive to produce any Sherlock stories, I tend to buy a good pastiche of any SH story that includes Sherlock and Watson. Some fave pastiche writers include Leslie Klinger, Laurie King, and Anthony Horowitz. #sherlocked @BookmarkTavern #SundayFunday

I finished my reread listen of A Study in Scarlet this morning. I love the first half again, getting to know Watson and Holmes through Watson‘s thoughts, but the shift in the second half always throws me off a bit. This story is good, but not a favorite in the collection.

I‘m so looking forward to revisiting these stories with a new group of readers! #NoPlaceLikeHolmes

Denise and I are excited to start this. We thought to start small with the short stories. We want to make this a fun and accessible buddy read so we‘ll also have some games and prizes along the way.

Aimeesue Definitely interested! I‘ve read them all before, but maybe this would spur me to listen to the Stephen Fry narrated audiobooks! 5mo
kelli7990 I‘m interested. I tried reading the first story a long time ago as an ebook and I didn‘t care for it in that format so I‘m going to try listening to it on audio this time. I have 2 audiobooks of Sherlock Holmes on my Audible app. 1 audiobook is narrated by Simon Vance and the other one is narrated by Stephen Fry. I think I‘m going to try the one narrated by Stephen Fry. 5mo
5feet.of.fury I have a really pretty Complete Works edition & have probably read 3 or 4 stories out of it, so this sounds like a good excuse. Count me in! 5mo
Read4life I‘m definitely interested! 🤓 5mo

Cuilin @CatLass007 we haven‘t posted a list yet. We plan on reading in Canon order. However we‘re still working on the schedule as some are novels and others are short stories. We may stick with one a month or two short stories a month. 3mo

#IHaveQuestions

@RaeLovesToRead has questions, y‘all! 🤔

Even at an early age I loved Sherlock Holmes mysteries, so I‘d go with Sherlock, Dr. Watson, and Irene Adler. For the entertainment, I would leave a bunch of fake clues around so every time Holmes used one to make a deduction about me, I could tell him, “That‘s not even close! You were way off!” Holmes wouldn‘t be amused, but I‘m sure Watson and Adler will enjoy watching Holmes suffer!😂

RaeLovesToRead Hahaha, Sherlock picks up PlayStation Controller... "I suspect we are looking for a gamer, Watson..." *looks at bookshelf* "a gamer who likes Brandon Sanderson ? 14mo
DaveGreen7777 @RaeLovesToRead That‘s one of the ways I‘ll get Sherlock, I‘ll leave an Xbox controller around, and when he deduces I‘m an Xbox player I‘ll say, “No, I‘m a PlayStation player, I don‘t even own an Xbox! You‘re really bad at this, Mr. Holmes!” 🤣 14mo
RaeLovesToRead Haha. "An xbox controller without a console, Watson? I think we may be being trolled. I call shenanigans. Also, when does takeaway arrive?" ?? 14mo

The first of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle‘s Sherlock Holmes stories. The novel sets up the characters and their characteristics that would become iconic. It‘s interesting to me that part of the back drop of this story is set in the American West and the Mormon migration. I couldn‘t get over the inaccurate placement of the Rio Grande as a point of travel fir the Mormons.

Overall, an excellent collection of stories. The descriptive characterization of Watson and Holmes is delightful throughout and, while the series as a whole ends with a less-than-stellar collection of stories, I wouldn't skip a single one.

Figured it was about time I tackle this collection... they've been sat in my Audible library for long enough! 🤭

I'd read this particular book before which is what got me interested in Sherlock Holmes in the first place, but having it narrated by Stephen Fry was a real treat! 🎧

I've made a decent start on the 2nd book in the collection already so I'll probably post a review for that one soon 😁

Katerina I listened to the collection last year and enjoyed it a lot. I like Stephen Fry's voice anyway :) 3y

⭐️⭐️⭐️ These short stories are not as good as the first two Sherlock novels. A lot of these stories were just people being cruel to one another but no actual crimes were committed. But there were some amazing Sherlock quotes and I even noticed that some of these stories were used in Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Sherlock when him and Watson are meeting clients in those quick montages. It‘s fun but I recommend the novels of this one. #nwc

mollyrotondo @Butterfinger A Study in Scarlet was better, right? 4y
Butterfinger @mollyrotondo I liked the short stories better. I can't really rationalize why. 4y

mollyrotondo @Butterfinger oh okay! I am going to read the next batch of short stories in Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes so I‘m hoping these grip me a little more. I‘m also on this hunt to find mentions of Mycroft and Moriarty in the short stories lol 4y
ElizaMarie I was also pretty excited that some of the stories jumped out at me (because of the BBC show) .

But I agree, the novels are better in my opinion as well.

Also, I totally get what you are saying about the people just being cruel. It felt like a running theme was tricking women.
4y
mollyrotondo @ElizaMarie yes women were being duped by men, including their own fathers and stepfathers. I can only assume that happened a lot in those days. More sad than anything. 4y

Sarah83 @pppooraikul do you read the short stories or the books first? 😍🤩 5y
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 😁 5y

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🤞🏻

Oh, dear. #foliofreaks

Sarah83 Yes. But do you see their new price philosophy? 5y
saresmoore @Sarah83 Oh, no I didn‘t read that far! I‘ll have to check it out. 5y
saresmoore @Sarah83 So a price hike for non-UK buyers? Boo! 5y

Kalalalatja I‘m so mad at FS about their upping the prices for non-UK buyers.. I just got a (c8 coupon as a birthday treat, but that doesn‘t even cover shipping... ? 5y
saresmoore @Kalalalatja That‘s such a disappointment! Must find a loophole! 5y
Sarah83 Yes indeed. 😪😪😪 5y
Moray_Reads The price thing is terrible. But there are so many new books from the Christmas catalogue that I need; this, Middlemarch, Kavalier and Clay, Book of Science, SPQR... 5y
saresmoore @Moray_Reads Me, too. And yes, need is the apt word here. 5y

First #audioworkout since the baby, and Stephen Fry reading Sherlock is keeping me company. Sign of Four today! This collection is my summer goal to get through.

CouronneDhiver Great shoes! 6y
Gezemice I just listened to the same collection. Stephen Fry could read me the dictionary! Plus, Sherlock, of course. I loved it. I thought it would take me forever but went through it fast. Took breaks between parts but each part went fast. 6y
rachelm @Gezemice I'm loving his introduction of the stories too-- so much cool history 6y
