Reading the stories again after many years. Still very enjoyable and even more so as I was also reading at the same time The Scientific Sherlock Holmes by James O'Brien, a scholarly explanation and examination of Sherlock's methods.

*Spoiler Alert*
Sherlock Holmes. What else to say? Well, an interesting collection with a sad ending. However, Doyle couldn't leave Holmes in his grave because of the response from readers. So, there are more Sherlock Holmes stories out there for you who were disappointed.
