Over the years reading, and re-reading, Conan Doyle’s stories of the great detective and his friend and colleague, has been one of the most gratifying ways in which I have spent an afternoon; those lazy Sunday mornings; or for that matter any time of day. It was the works of Doyle and Roald Dahl that imbued me with a zest and passion for the written word at an early age; their words stoked my imagination and crafted worlds that I reveled in for hours on end, all from the comfort of my armchair.
Owning The Complete Novels and Stories is the only way to enjoy the adventures of Holmes and Watson. Over the course of 1800 pages we’re introduced to the calculated, precise, sometimes manic and not necessarily infallible genius of Holmes; the extremely tenacious and loyal Dr. Watson, and follow them through their exploits ranging from the sinister, to the bizarre, to the light-hearted.
The greatest duo ever created. A fine writer. And a gem of a collection.
