The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Free read ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary Ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Arthur Conan Doyle S 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
