Review

<DIV></DIV><DIV>"Doyle's modesty of language conceals a profound tolerance of the human complexity . . . No wonder, then, if the pairing of Holmes and Watson has triggered more imitators than any other duo in literature."  John Le Carré, author, The Constant Gardener</DIV> --the adventures of sherlock

<DIV></DIV><DIV>"Arthur Conan Doyle is unique in . . . ushering in a genre of writing that, while imitated and expanded, has never been surpassed."  Stephen Fry</DIV> --the adventures of sherlock

Product Description

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.
