    One thought on “The Complete Sherlock Holmes & Tales of Terror and Mystery”

    1. When we talk about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes always seems to be one of the first things that spring to mind. Sadly for this Scottish writer, this turned into both a blessing and a curse. Firstly, Sherlock Holmes remains a seminal part of crime writing and English literature, but limited the writer’s chances in exploring something different. In 1893 Doyle famously tried to kill off Sherlock Holmes in the story “The Final Problem” but due to public outcry and high demands the e [...]

    2. I've long been a fan of Sherlock Holmes, but have only read bits and pieces of Doyle's other works. I know a lot are supposed to be (or so critcs will say) a bit pulpy, but this isn't something that bothers me. I enjoy a bit of melodrama, even if it's over the top at times - and Doyle definitely has a tendency to be over the top with his action-adventure stories, and his romances. This particular book contains twelve short stories - six under the section titled tales of terror and six under myst [...]

    3. I seem to find myself on a bit of a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle kick lately. I've been throughly enjoying his work but wanted to take a short break from Sherlock Holmes. What is an avid reader to do? Why, pick up "Tales of Terror and Mystery", of course!This volume is broken up into two parts. The first half is tales of terror (you don't say!), and the second, tales of mystery (no, really??!!). I adored the tales of terror and was either indifferent or disliked the tales of mystery. Who'd have though [...]

    4. Being a huge fan of the BBC series, I decided it was tie to read the stories it was based on. Since this is a compilation of several novels and short stories, I've decided to add to this review as I finish stories.A Study in Scarlet - 4 stars: I was really surprised by how easy this was to read. I was expecting it to be dull and difficult to read; instead I stayed up late finishing it - I couldn't put it down! I especially enjoyed how Doyle told the story from the point of view of the victim and [...]

    5. The perfect book for those who think Arthur Conan Doyle only wrote stories about Sherlock Holmes. This collection, divided into "Tales of Terror" and "Tales of Mystery", strengthens the argument that Doyle would have been remembered even if he did not create the famous detective. I prefer the tales of terror over the mystery, especially " The Horrors of The Height" and "The Brazilian Cat".

    6. Reviewers have suggested that the tales of terror in this Conan Doyle collection show that these themes are no longer frightening to us - monsters in the high altitudes? Something that has absorbed the bad vibes of its history? Being locked in dark and close places? Monstrous creatures that have somehow survived? Wild cats – lions, tigers, pumas, jaguars? This is the very stuff of our fascination with the outré the bizarre, the unexplained – the very stuff of horror – fantasy or sci-fi. D [...]

    7. WHEN I WAS 17 YEARS OLD, MANY YEARS AGO, I STARTED TO READ THIS BOOK AND IMMEDIATELY LOST INTEREST. PERHAPS I WAS TOO YOUNG TO APPRECIATE THE USE OF THE PROPER ENGLISH LANGUAGE. I ALWAYS REGRETTED NOT FINISHING THE BOOK AND DECIDED TO TRY AGAIN. I OWN A HARD COPY AND ALSO HAVE COPY OF THE BOOK ON MY NOOK. I READ THIS BOOK ON THE NOOK WHICH WAS GIVEN TO ME AS A GIFT. I PREFER A HARD COPY, BUT IN THIS CASE, BECAUSE OF ALL THE SHORT STORIES THE NOOK WAS PERFECT.I RECENTLY PICKED UP THE BOOK AND BEC [...]

    8. I had a highly abridged collection of Sherlock Holmes tales as a young lad, and I can now safely say that they don't hold a candle to the complete works. I was left with that special sadness one feels when losing a long time friend upon completion of these stories. I had to stop reading for a tick before carrying on to "Tales Of Terror And Mystery." The tales at the end are great, but the Sherlock Holmes stories are the real gold here. Each "singular" tale is fantastic in its own special way. I [...]

    9. Ini buku kubeli secara tidak sengaja-- tanpa ancang-ancang maupun rencana untuk beli ini sebelumnya.Tapi untunglah, aku membelinya. Buku ini berisi 13 kisah-kisah pendek dengan tema misteri, yang kemudian dibagi jadi dua bagian: bagian pertama, "Terror", berisi cerpen2 fokus pada gejolak batin serta kengerian yang dihadapi tokoh utamanya, sementara satunya, "Mystery", fokus pada inti penyelesaian (istilah yang lebih keren: pemecahan) sebuah kasus misterius, dengan pelaku, sebab, tujuan, dan pros [...]

    10. If you are a fan of Arthur Conan Doyle or just a fan of Sherlock Holmes, you will probably come across this book and read it at some point. Doyle didn't write too many mystery stories that did NOT involve Sherlock Holmes, and these are some of them.The book is divided into two large sections - Tales of Terror and Tales of Mystery. As is well-known, Doyle was a fanatic spiritualist, and many of the tales of terror deal with some strange stuff - weird creatures living in the upper atmosphere, for [...]

    11. Tales of monsters and terrors are all short stories about monsters and myths. I actually like this book of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle better then his Sherlock stories. Mostly because the stories are more likely to happen then the Sherlock stories. Sherlock is of course a mastermind but sometimes I really wonder how the hell he finds the clues. Anyway about tales of monsters and terrors. I didn’t like all stories, which is quite normal ;) However most I liked and it was fun to read. As happens more [...]

    12. 2 1/2 starsI wasn't very excited by many of the stories in this collection. The tales of terror weren't scary or terrifying or very suspenseful at all. The best of the terror section was the one called "The Brazilian Cat." The vest mystery to me was "The Lost Special." Some of the stories felt like they weren't going anywhere, so the author quickly resolved them. Then they were added to this collection to make a few bucks off of his name. There are no Sherlock Holmes stories included here, so if [...]

    13. This was an ok collection of short stories. The endings were pretty obvious in the majority. The terror stories weren't exactly scary but maybe they were back then. The mystery stories felt like Sherlock Holmes lite, Conan Doyle's way of writing mysteries without having to include Holmes.I prefer his actual Holmes stories, at least this was fairly short and free thanks to Project Gutenberg.

    14. Perfect. It took me 2 years to read it, because I would read a book, read something else, come back read a bunch of short stories, go back to this but it was so great. I've re-read most of it because the stories are so good.

    15. No cussing, graphic violence or sex - and there can still be mystery and a little 'looking back' fun. Who knew!?! ☺

    16. Conan Doyle excells at the Short Story. Even without Holmes Doyle's natural detuctive reasoning skills come through in this collection of Mystery and Horror stories.

    17. If you want horror, read Lovecraft. If you want Mystery, read one of the Sherlock Holmes series. Skip this one.

    18. Arthur Conan Doyle's collections of previously published short stories fell flat for me. I haven't read his Sherlock series, so I can't make assertations as to whether this was better or worse than his 'flagship' novels.The Tales of Terror were quite awful and full of endings I predicted about a quarter of the way through each story. Not an ideal situation, because it left me reading quickly to see if I've (hopefully) been proven wrong I wasn't.The Tales of Mystery, on the other hand, were the r [...]

    19. This book collection took me a LONG time to get through. I listened to the book on audio book and it was read by an amazing narrator (I got it from Audible). I would only listen to this book when I was not feeling well but it made me feel better. It is interesting to go back to the original source when watching the new adaptations for Sherlock Holmes, especially with all the advances in technology in recent years. There was some class terms that today are racist or culturally insensitive which i [...]

    20. Reading Doyle's Tales of Terror today, is like reading a cozy mystery, all conjecture with only postulated ending; wrapped around Doyle's concept of scientific thinking. I feel I walked into a conversation, eavesdropping, a comfortable way to start and end a tale.I have been reading this collection for several weeks to fulfill a challenge. To be truthful there were too many stories grouped together, I wish the collection had been shorter.

    21. A good book.I would recommend this book to anyone who likes classic books. I enjoyed reading this book. I have always enjoyed reading books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    22. Outstanding as usualA compilation of short story mysteries. Every one on it's own if longer in script would constitute a classic deserving 5stars

    23. EntertainingIf you enjoy Victorian stories then consider adding this to your list. Some were very clever and enjoyable but none scary.

    25. I promised myself I would finish this mammoth book before the calendar year was up. It didn't take that long, and given the subject matter I did put it down more than a few times, but I did it.So, how was it? Sherlock Holmes is a rather fascinating character, a man who can pick up the tiniest of clues in the smallest of places and know everything there is to know. With that in mind, the longer the stories go, the less charming they are. Early Holmes work is better than later Holmes work, and eve [...]

    26. Half the tales are horror related and the others are more classic Doyle mysteries ala Sherlock Holmes. In fact, one might be considered a Sherlock Holmes mystery. The Horror of the Heights stands out as the best among the terror genre, though Blue John Gap is similarly done. I found the other tales very predictable. The mystery ones seemed to have a better build up though once again the pay off wasn't great--The Lost Special and Nightmare Room were memorable.

    27. This collection of Conan Doyle short stories is divided in two parts: six tales of "terror," and six tales of mystery. The influence of Edgar Allen Poe on Doyle's writing is evident, esp in "The Horror of the Heights" and "The New Catacomb." Of course the character of Sherlock Holmes was inspired to some extent by Poe's Dupin, though Doyle gave most of the credit to his former instructor Dr Joseph Bell. In two of the mysteries, Holmes seems to be rather slyly alluded to by Doyle, who did at leas [...]

    28. "Kau tahu bahwa kita melihat orang-orang yang senang mengumbar rahasia pribadi sebagai pengecut dan penjahat besar yang pernah ada." (Doyle, 2012 p. 37).Sesuai dengan judul, buku ini memuat cerita-cerita pendek yang dikategorikan sebagai dua bagian, teror dan misteri. Dalam masing-masing kategori terdapat enam kisah teror dan enam kisah misteri yang thrill-nya berbeda-beda. Mulai dari yang, "Meh biasa aja." sampai "OMG Seriously??". Di antara kedua belas kisah yang ada dalam buku, saya paling me [...]

    29. Tales of Terror and Mystery is a collection of short stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, who also wrote mystery stories featuring a certain detective people seem to like even today. (n.b if you switch "Terror" and "Mystery" around in the title, you get a different book by a Mr. Poe.) The book is divided into two sections - "Tales of Terror" has six stories more disquieting than mysterious, and "Tales of Mystery" has another six scenarios worthy of the Great Detective himself. None of the stories are [...]
