    1. The Sherlock BBC show’s creators talk Sherlock Holmes…My thanks to my contacts at Pegasus Books, Iris Blasi, Katie McGuire, and Maia Larson, for my advance reading copy of this book. You ladies rock!Everyone who reads Sherlock Holmes, or has seen one of the many movies or TV shows, and especially the fans of the BBC drama, Sherlock— has their own favorite story. Yet Sherlockians worldwide have certain stories that they feel one must read in order to understand the Great Detective and how h [...]

    2. For fans who have only seen the television adaption, this collection is a great introduction into the Sherlock Holmes series. Conan Doyle is a masterful writer (if we'll excuse some wild historical inaccuracies) and an extraordinary purveyor of the mysterious; he truly is a pioneer in his field.

There is scarcely a bett [...]

    4. He is such an engaging writer, and it's fun to go back and read the ones that inspired certain episodes or character development, but their intros are a disappointing 2-3 sentences.

    5. I love Sherlock Holmes and this is a good way to get at the beginning of his relationship with Watson. A good companion to all the movies and TV shows but it's great to get right to the source.

    6. -hugs book- it took a very long time to get through the whole collection, but I'm officially a Sherlock books fan.

    8. I quite like the presentations/reasons behind this selection of Sherlock Holmes stories by the two creators of the BBC hit show Sherlock, and even though I think a couple of other stories should have been included too, I did overall enjoyed this book!
