The Penguin Complete Sherlock Holmes Press Reviews

'Holmes is a mesmerising creation and Conan Doyle a master storyteller' The Times

 

'The immense talent, passion and literary brilliance that Conan Doyle brought to his work gives him a unique place in English letters... Personally, I'd walk a million in tight boots just to read his letters to the milkman. -- Stephen Fry

 

'Why do people still read Sherlock Holmes in an age of DNA testing and electron microscopes? It's elementary. Holmes has a timeless intelligence that puts him head, shoulders and deer-stalker above all other detectives' -- Alexander McCall Smith

 

'I read every Sherlock Holmes story...they have certainly found a permanent place in English literature' -- Winston Churchill

 

'The world's most famous detective' -- Ruth Rendell

 

'The brilliance of the stories lies in the relationship between Holmes and Watson, which is both funny and touching -- Jonathan Coe

 

'Now, as in his lifetime, cab drivers, statesmen, academics, and raggedy-arsed children sit spellbound at his feet... No wonder, then, if the pairing of Holmes and Watson has triggered more imitators than any other duo in literature -- John Le Carre
