104:75 The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The first book of short stories pertaining to Sherlock Holmes.  These are much more the sort of thing that you think of when you think of Sherlock Holmes rather than the first book.  I enjoyed them but found that due to the short story format, while the mysteries were fun the solution was frequently rushed through.  There were no clues laid out that the reader might follow rather it was "Holmes went out and came back with the solution" and then you are told what he found and how that told him the clues.  I would rather follow Holmes on the chase for clues and see them as he does.
