    It's the end of the world and Watson and Holmes, on the cusp of having their brilliant lives snuffed out by the impending doom decide their simmering sexual tension can go no further. As they remove their clothes, Watson turns around to see Holmes brandishing a tub of Lemon Curd. "Ho...

    So, I volunteer at a library, in what the librarians call the "Popular Library," which consists of the area with the DVDs, music CDs and of course, the audiobooks. The majority of the titles in the audiobook section are romance novels. It struck me as a hilarious idea, and indeed, each...

    To have a slight measure of the pleasant chills that race up and down your spine when you delve into a meaty Holmes mystery, do read the introduction passage by Mark Gatiss (co-creator of BBC Entertainment?s Sherlock). Amidst a host of admirable emotions, Gatiss? one nostalgic para...

    I?ve been listening to Sherlock Holmes stories in the car and think I?m going to go through and listen to all of them now. I?ve started with The Adventures and have enjoyed it immensely. There must have been any number of psychological studies performed on Mr Holmes. There is...

    Sherlock Holmes is one of the great characters of literature - who can resist the aloof arrogance and limitless self-satisfaction which stems from that intellectual superiority with which he squishes all the dodgy baronets and rum foreign coves that turn up in the mysteries presented t...

    It?s been fun zipping through one of these stories each night for the past twelve nights. I?ve even felt rather clever after guessing correctly on a few of the outcomes?even without counting ?The Speckled Band?, a story I remember very well from grammar school. I?m not sure...

    Gotta love the old-school dash! Arthur Conan Doyle created such an intriguing vehicle for his mystery stories in the figure of Sherlock Holmes, a man almost inhuman, nearly robotic in his exacting speech and actions, so much so that the reader longs for and grasps on to the minute h...

    I've read quite a few Sherlock Holmes stories before, more than half of these, probably, at one time or another, but this collection of twelve, taken all at one go (really over three days, but you know what I mean), gives a different impression than the stories do when taken individual...

    Fun. The crimes in this book are more along the lines of puzzles to work out rather than realistic depictions of crime in late Victorian- early Edwardian England. Contrived, but enjoyable. My favourite moment, I am not positive it is in this collection, is when Holmes and Watson are...

    Nothing compares to the original. If you really want to know Holmes and Watson, this is what you read. The characterization and pacing is, for me, delightful. The insights into a London of trains and mail more than once a day, the manners of the time, the dialogue . . . this is a feast...

    This collection of short stories by Barnes and Noble was worth the price. I loved the sparkly cover (the lettering is in silver) and there are also illustrations included. The pages are nicely edged as well and it comes with it's own personal bookmark. That said, I enjoyed all of the s...

    As a rule, the more 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 ...
