This was my first copy of Sherlock Holmes, and the moment it passed from my dad's hands into mine, i was hooked. The selection is exquisite, perfect for reeling in a fresh reader. But what is special about it is the introductory passage by S. C. Roberts. The introduction is a beautiful and soulful glance into Holmes' and Watson's lives, detailed yet brief. It's the best summary of Holmes' 'life' I've ever read. Long story short, even though I have complete sets of Sherlock Holmes with me, this copy is my favourite :)

I've read Sherlock Holmes about every year of my education. Some of the stories are hard to follow, other easier to follow but they are all great! Elementary, my dear Watson! Read full review
