    1. After the hugely disappointing latest series of Sherlock (with the exception of the excellent Toby Jones) it was good to re-read Conan Doyle once again. It's amazing how, in a story written over a hundred years ago, he can create more excitement & drama than in a modern day, big budget TV series. There's even a nice glimpse of humour from the great detective in this one. A joy to read, as always.



    2. "Education never ends, Watson."Mrs.Warren visits Sherlock on account of her odd tenant. She furnished him with details of her tenant. The tenant went out only on the first night, came back only when everyone was asleep, stays in his rooms, uses the laconic style of messages to conceal his foreign language and writing style. In this short story, both American and English detectives come together to solve the case. Sherlock, however, is of the opinion that the tenant had been substituted.Gordiano, [...]


    3. A very mysterious story of my most favorite fictitious character of all time, Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes is approached by Mrs. Hudson to assist a friend of hers. The lady also lets furnished rooms and is now worried about what one of her boarders may be up to. The man had come to her 10 days before and paid her an exorbitant amount to ensure complete privacy during his stay. His meals are left outside his door and no one enters the room. Now the landlady can't sleep at night wondering what [...]


    4. The Adventure of the Red Circle was another enjoyable addition to the chronicles. It was a linear story with some twists and turns but just too dang short. Like previously stated in another review, if someone were to expand upon many of these stories and develop them into novels while fleshing out the backstory of the Red Circle and it's shadowy members, they'd be a hit!




    5. In this story, Mrs. Warren, a landlady, comes to 221B Baker Street with some questions about her lodger. A youngish, heavily bearded man, who spoke good but accented English came to her and offered double her usual rent on the condition that he get the room on his own terms. He went out the first night that he was there, and came back after midnight when the rest of the household had gone to bed. Since then, neither Mrs. Warren, her husband, nor their servant girl have seen him. The lodger insis [...]





    6. "Why should you go further in it? What have you to gain from it?""What, indeed? It's an art for art's sake, Watson. I suppose when you doctored you found yourself studying cases without a thought of a fee?""For my education, Holmes.""Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons with the greatest for the last. This is an instructive case. There is neither money nor credit in it, and yet one would wish to tidy it up."


    7. It took me a few days to read this one, as I read VERY slow But as with all Sherlock Cases, this one has that sense of "What did I miss", and yeah there was a couple things I missed on this one.The story read fast, but the wrap up was a little slow, and of course the ending was a little anti-climatic I Feel there should have been more, but it was exactly as I had suspected it would be.


    8. "Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons with the greatest for the last. This is an instructive case. There is neither money nor credit in it, and yet one would wish to tidy it up""Education, Gregson, education. Still seeking knowledge at the old university"I love Holmes's inspirational attitude


    9. Again an excellent short-story from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.This time, I could almost guess the main facts along with Sherlock. The story is so well written that you can follow the thoughts of the famous detective.






    10. The vexing part of Sherlock stories are that they follow a single patten. But different mystery. Still it was a good read. And a fine story.
