The adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a collection of 12 detective fiction stories by Arthur Conan Doyle.  An inevitable collection of Adventure stories, without which our library would miss the action packed thriller moments of the world famous Sherlock Holmes. It is hard to believe Holmes is only a fictitious character, not a living man. Penned by Conan and published as series of short stories, these detective collections made a huge fortune to the then Strand Magazine for months.

These twelve stories are narrated in an enjoyable manner. Yesteryears of conveying messages and train rides bring visuals of the Victorian London. Sherlock is characterized as not just a detective machine but with humanity inside him. It is his counterpart Dr.Watson makes him work. Unlike the contemporary days where we find scientific inventions made detectives to work much easier, resolving mysteries those days are the results of supernatural observations.
