The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of the first twelve short stories based on the famous detective, including the cases of The Red-Headed League, The Speckled Band, and A Scandal in Bohemia. Holmes will need to use his various skills, including an aptitude for acting and disguise, tracking footprints, hand to hand combat, deciphering different types of tobacco ash, and knowledge of psychology to solve cases of blackmail, treachery and murder. Sherlock Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess and is renowned for his skilful use of deductive reasoning, astute observation, and forensic skills to solve difficult cases. Deductive reasoning allows Holmes to impressively reveal a stranger's occupation. Similarly, by studying inanimate objects, he is able to make astonishingly detailed deductions about their owners. This mindset was a major innovation in the field of crime fiction, inspiring authors like Robert J. Sawyer, Neil Gaiman and Stephen King.

Sherlock Holmes is a classic mystery novel, and I think everyone should try reading it. The great thing about Sherlock Holmes books is that there are many short stories, mysteries and crimes in one novel.
I think it is most suitable for children 10 to 15 but if you are 20 and you still haven't read it than you should certainly read at least one of the short stories!

Much better than "A Study In Scarlet"...! If you want to immerse yourself in a few good Sherlockian tales, make this your pick.

The nice thing about Sherlock stories is that, being short stories, they can be completely absorbed and reflected upon in a much shorter time frame than novels. These stories are no less rich or dense though. They are wholly satisfying.

Intriguing mysteries. Easy to pick up and put down because it is a bunch of short stories. The mysteries will keep you guessing and you will be baffled at how Sherlock Holmes finds solutions to them.
