PDF (Sherlock Holmes)
Ardboard Box and all the rest really ARE there *SO THE GAME S AFOOT NO MATTER WHICH EDITION *the game s afoot no matter which dition choose but personally if I had to do it all over again I d probably just buy the Top Five Classics dition Interesting for historical insightI haven t finished the ntire collection but I do have some insights that I need to jot down for myself The stories showcase misogyny well beyond the lack of legal status and rights women at the time The working class characters are props and occasionally one is fully developed Doyle drops them off the page as if he doesn t know what to do with them The non English European if lacking a million pounds a crown a title or Scotland Yard level authority detective doesn t xist It s not as bad as American science fiction with regards to non Americans but it s very close Across hundreds of pages there are four non whites mentioned One is an opium den bouncer three are Sikh soldiers in a military prison So the racism uotient is not surprisingly very very high Doyle much like his Holmes and the lovable Dr Watson are sociopaths That s just my opinion Please no hate comments It won t change my feelings and it wouldn t reflect well on the senderI first read the Holmes stories as a teenager and looking at it now it s much different I m trying to avoid comparisons to other writers but Charlie N Holmberg and the Magician books remind me of the Holmes universe I m going to have to re read Agatha Christie and see how that bounces around in my headI don t remember the stories that deal with Americans The one with the Mormons was shocking to me in the detail that he used in the description of Mormon lifestyle He seems to use less when describing the British xperience and it makes sense since his readers would Buried easily fill in thentire background of a story from a key few sentencesThe story about the KKK caught me by surprise While he throws in detail he doesn t make a moral judgement about their agenda He simply is concerned that they behave as a criminal organization and I get the impression that if the KKK members had been southern senators neither Holmes nor Doyle would have been concerned Of course then they would not have killed anyone directly but he doesn t seem to realize that their agents were financed and protected by the same kind of people Holmes would go after who ordered a murder or theft in LondonIt s not surprising as I thought about it that Europeans might know that the founder was confederate General Nathan Forrest They were a domestic terrorist organization but Holmes is only concerned with their white victims and that was surprising That he would devote so much nergy to track down the murderer of former members surprised me I would have xpected his attitude to be that some people have arned the right to be murdered Instead he s upset that whites with influence are intimidated by these guys as if any white with influence in the South carpet bagger or not clashed with their agenda That s a total misunderstanding of the purpose organization and funding of these creeps I remember reading that Woodrow Wilson that forward thinking visionary president was a Klan member Washington DC hosted a national celebration of the Klan parade included around the time of the first World War This is a constant theme in the stories He doesn t seek justice only to solve puzzles He pursues murderers who have finally balanced the scales of justice in a system that doesn t seek justice only bodies for the hangman to reassure the proper sort that they are safe It bothered me when I was younger ven though I focused on the puzzles but it jumped off the page this go round The roles rights and importance of women has changed since the stories were written but only as regards women of the right sort Holmes considers some males despicable but then having solved the puzzle puts the women s situations out of mindHe consistently writes women willingly following their kidnappers bec.

Remember to look closely at the cover of all these complete Sherlock Holmes books With the wonders of capitalistically fueled competition ach dition of all 4 novels and 56 short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is beginning to look and similar Not all are created uite as ual as one would think however Sherlock Holmes The Ultimate Collection is than adeuate if you just want to read very one of the stories but it s definitely not the best of the bunch Read on to find out In my uest to find the holy grail of Sherlock Holmes literature aka THE definitive collection of original Conan Doyle penned stories I actually nded up buying and reading and rereading 3 different versions My assessment of all 3 is as follows1 Sherlock Holmes The Ultimate Collection the one being reviewed here This is a perfectly adeuate collection It DOES include all 4 novels and 56 short stories but the book is all text with no real illustrations to speak of When I first purchased it as an book it did NOT include all the stories but before I was ven finished reading it a simple Kindle update added all the rest making it certifiably complete So if you see a review of The Ultimate Collection that says it isn t complete it s probably just an old review At any rate the Film and Television Adaptations and Beyond the Canon synopsis sections at the A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, end of the book are also included but do not appear in the other Sherlock Holmes collections Kindle formatting isn t so good in this one however unfortunately Individual storychapters aren tasily accessible from the drop down menu as they are in other collected SH books My five star rating is for the writing itself which is of course practically peerless2 The Complete Sherlock Holmes Volumes 1 4 The Heirloom Collection *The Heirloom Collection Isn T *Heirloom Collection isn t absolute best compendium of SH stories but it is The Shadow Reader extremely good Most importantly it does contain all 4 novels and 56 short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle though not always in thexact same order as other Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies editions making it a little confusing when comparing differentditions to determine if all the stories are actually included and they really are Design wise the graphic

Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. even the best of them It s that he hates them period Think about it who but a misogynist would take a man who is marriedspecially a newlywed into his adventures without ven a mention of the wife and a total disregard for his Watson s in this case domestic life I also found most of the stories uite frankly a little simplistic I ll take the humane and colorful Hercule Poirot thank you very much4 stars because it s Sherlock Holmes and you can t give Holmes less than 4 stars can you as a fan of stars can you As a fan of hit BBC series Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman I ve njoyed making my way through these classic stories I d read a few of them in school and such but most of them are brand new to me It s fun to see how the show s writers have adapted Conan Doyle s tales of our favorite consulting detective into a modern setting Looking forward to reading the rest of these fun and compelling mysteries 60 stories and not one ounce of character development Interesting cases but somewhat tedious to read them all What an amazing collection I didn t want it to nd Wow I m actually done This was uite the njoyable Glitter Bomb (A Scrapbooking Mystery, experience and I m so glad to have read all the Holmes stories now World s longest review coming soon D FREE on today 6222020 I feel like I have really accomplished something in finishing thisntire collection It was uite long but totally worth it At first I wasn t sure that I was
