Book Review #32: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is the fourth book in the Sherlock Holmes series by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Like The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, this is a collection of thirteen short stories which keep the reader wondering the circumstances, clues and outcome of each story. We are introduced to his brother, Mycroft, in one of the stories and briefly appears in some of the others. We are also introduced to Professor Moriarty in the last story of the book.
This book is as compelling as the ones that precede it in the series. It’s amazing on how the author could come up with the plot and outcomes of all these stories and keep them interesting. I enjoyed this one just like the others.
You can download this book in various ebook formats from the following sites:
