REVIEW The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

CHARACTERS The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Å The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand magazine in which they were first published and won immense popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson The detective is at the heigS full of famous cases including 'The Red Headed League' 'The Blue Carbuncle' and 'The Speckled Band' Although Holmes gained a reputation for infallibility Conan Doyle showed his own realism and feminism by having the great detective defeated by Irene Adler the woman. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes published in 1892 and available for free online reading or downloading here on Project Gutenberg or many other places is a collection of twelve Sherlock Holmes short stories Doyle's formula for his Sherlock stories gets a little bit worn and visible after you read several of them back to back But there are some jewels in this collection and they all have something to offer the interested reader even if it's only an insight into Sherlock's or Dr Watson's characters or Victorian societyMy full reviews for these stories are at the links but I've posted my star ratings and brief comments here4 A Scandal in Bohemia Notable mostly for the appearance of Irene Adler probably the best and most intelligent female character Doyle ever created3 The Red Headed League Reading about a massive crowd of redheads was fun but otherwise this is a fairly standard Sherlock Holmes story2 A Case of Identity The rare swing and miss it's lightweight and predictable with a patronizing Victorian view of women that thoroughly irritated me34 The Boscombe Valley Mystery A son is accused of his father's murder understandable since he was found at the scene covered in blood but of course there's to the story than that 35 The Five Orange Pips Five dried up orange seeds in an envelope are a serious threat Apparently so when they're accompanied by the letters KKK and followed by death This one is atmospheric and compelling reading but I'm dinging it for Doyle's complete disregard for actual historical facts about the KKK This story is also notable for view spoilerbeing one of the few total fails by Sherlock Holmes hide spoiler

As a rule the bizarre a thing is the less mysterious it proves to be It is your commonplace featureless crimes which are really puzzling just as a commonplace face is the most difficult to identify Who doesn't know Sherlock Holmes these days Even if not everyone might be familiar with the original version invented by Arthur Conan Doyle Mr Holmes has become such a legend in his own right a development fed and supported by numerous stage screen and radio adaptions that it is nearly impossible to hear the word 'detective' without immediately associating Sherlock Holmes'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' is a collection of altogether twelve short stories published as the third part of the Sherlock Holmes series following Doyle's novels A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four Not without reason do many readers consider this collection to be Doyle's masterpiece myself included It simply was no masterpiece which absolutely thrilled or stunned me Blame it on me or my inability to read all the stories from this collection in less than four months but a lot of the fun about Holmes' and Watson's adventures was deprived from the novel by repeating exactly the same concept in each and every one of those storiesLet's take a look at the short stories itself which may very well represent the very essence of Doyle's works in the Sherlock Holmes canon Beginning with A Scandal in Bohemia and concluding with The Adventure of the Copper Beeches Doyle invented two famous female characters freuently associated with the stories about Holmes Irene Adler and Violet Hunter Both may be considered ahead of their times surprisingly independent and brave The other characters Doyle brought into play during the other ten stories were not uite as memorable however The Red Headed League turned out to be a sweet little short story which isn't very outstanding in the Sherlock Holmes series because of its predictability but still includes some interesting uotes and follows a suspense packed plot with a conclusion which will keep you turning the pages just as The Boscombe Valley Mystery an interesting mystery story about a man being suspected of having murdered his father consisting of fast paced dialogues and an exciting turning point Everyone seems to have guessed the ending correctly before reading it everyone except for me which may be the reason for why I liked it so much A Case of Identity was far off being nearly as intriguing I have written a full review for this story here while The Man with the Twisted Lip emerged as a really good short story with an interesting twist I would never have figured out on my own In addition Arthur Conan Doyle included some interesting material surrounding Sherlock's drug addiction here and once again he masterfully explored the friendship between Sherlock and Watson Afterwards a story about the influence of the Ku Klux Klan The Five Orange Pips elouently narrated by Watson as usual once again followed the pattern of a classic Holmes tale with an interesting plot and new layers of depth to the character of Sherlock Holmes Sadly enough it wasn't as uniue as Doyle wanted the story to appearAnother rather interesting little story but not outstanding or mind blowing was The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle enjoyable but nothing Therein Holmes has to deal with a stolen carbuncle appearing in the throat of a Christmas goose entering on the search for the real culprit The Speckled Band is one of the most well known stories in this collection and the hype this short story received is understandable due to its complex mystery and the stunning conclusion I liked the story myself However never before has Doyle confronted us with so many plot holes which ul
