The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'Sherlock Holmes was transformed when he was hot upon such a scent as this. Men who had only known the quiet thinker and logician of Baker Street would have failed to recognize him. His face flushed and darkened. His brows were drawn into two hard black lines, while his eyes shone out from beneath them with a steely glitter.' Set against the foggy, mysterious backdrops of London and the English countryside, these are the first twelve stories ever published to feature the infamous Detective Sherlock Holmes and his side kick Doctor Watson. They first appeared as stories in the Strand Magazine and feature some of his most famous and enjoyable cases, including 'A Scandal in Bohemia', 'The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle' and 'The Red-headed League'.

Greatest Detective EVER!!!!! =D
Sherlock Holmes is my hero. Arthur Conan Doyle is a genius for creating my favorite book character. This collection of some of Holmes' best detective stories is just mind blowing. Whenever I read one of these stories, I'm always like what the hell, this is impossible but then Holmes just reveals all his deductions and I'm just like, that is so obvious, how on earth did I not see that. My favorite is the 'The man with the twisted lip' because I literally jumped out my chair in shock when I realised who the man was. I was like OMG, that is amazing! Anyways if a person does read this review and probably thinks im crazy, well stop reading this review and start reading the damn book! You wont regret it. =P
