Description

It is the last twelve stories written about Holmes and Watson, these tales reflect the disillusioned world of the 1920s in which they were written. Some of the sharpest turns of wit in English literature are contrasted by dark images of psychological tragedy, suicide, and incest in a collection of tales that have haunted generations of readers.

Reviews

  • This edition not worth buying

    This edition is missing key punctuation. For example, all the dashes. Until the sellers correct this problem, don't bother. 99¢ is not such a deal if you can't make sense of what you are reading. The stories are wonderful and deserve better treatment.
  • Typo's galore

    This version is almost unreadable for all the missing punctuation, typo's and erroneous/misspelled words. It is readable, but takes extra concentration to fill in all the missing sentence endings. Not a good representation of the works of Conan Doyle! Buy another version for sure. A waste of $0.99.

    Classic Sherlock and Watson--entertaining and charming with skillful imagination.

    This is the cheapest edition for a reason. Rarely have I seen so many typos in so few pages. Spend the extra dollar and get a legible version instead.
  • Substandard

    I've read the rest of the Sherlock Holmes series from Project Gutenberg, which did an exemplary job. Unfortunately, they do not have this last book available. I figured 99 cents wasn't a bad price to pay. But this was really disappointing as it seems there was no editing whatsoever. The formatting is completely off, lots of punctuation is missing or incorrect, and there's a significant amount of spelling errors.
