Any Fans of this Great Victorian Era Detective? Sir Arthur Conan Doyle really created the greatest detective ever. If You Haven't read any stories, Read The Hounds Of The Baskervilles right away!! Holmes was featured in 4 novels and 56 short stories (all of which I've read). Great Detective

Sadly, I've only seen homages and parodies. You should understand this:

Well, I read "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and really enjoyed it. I've also read a few short stories, but I couldn't name them. Really well written (though Doyle was a bit crazy), the plots are pretty complicated and keep you guessing- but my favorite detectives shall always be Mystery Inc. from Scooby Doo

I was forced to read "Baskervilles" nearly 30 years ago (9th grade english class lol) and it bored me, and I never attempted another Doyle. But that's my own fault - never had a lot of patience for fiction written before the 20th century.

Baskervilles was written in the 20 century Von Bontee. Trying again will benefit you greatly

I read one years ago and they're good, but the snobbish English spoken Mexican reader on me refuses to read more unless they're in English. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

Damn, I'm ignorant! I had the feeling they were all from the late Victorian era, like around the time of Jack the Ripper.

Appreciate the recommendation, but I probably won't get around to trying again. I've got this vague commitment to try "The Great Gatsby" and/or "Moby Dick".

The Victorian era ended in 1901, and Baskervilles was published the following year. You were close a-hard-days-night-ringo-9

I thought he was a fictional character, so then he was a real person?!?!?!?!?!?

Well I read a Sherlocks Homley book a really long time ago only I didn't even like it all that much becuase I thought it dragged quite a bit, probaly?

1. He was completely fictional.

2. You should try again. Holmes stories are awesome.

Yeah, well I might, becuase the one I read wasn't even a real one. It was rewritten so that little kids could read it themselves.

Alongside Columbo the best dective, the stories keep you intruiqued till the end. My favourite would be The Valley Of Fear, particularly part 2 when the whole backstory is explained and has a twist i never saw coming.

For Holmes fans, I bought Ellie (my wife) a board game called 221b Baker Street for Christmas. It's really good, I recommend it. It's a little like Cluedo, only with more complex crime solving.

I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes!
My first book, which I got from my parents, I read about 10 times. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have made up wonderful criminal stories with Sherlock Holmes! I read all the books and stories about his great adventures!
I can reccomend them to everybody! They're great!

I read a collection of short stories last year and I was really fascinated.. but I always had the feeling that I miss something therefore I plan now to read all the books... I think it's necessary to get the full amount of awesomeness of this guy a-hard-days-night-george-10

And I think it's amazing how Sherlock Holmes as a character has been integrated into our culture. EVERYBODY knows him!
