I've always been a sucker for classic novels. Even as a child, there was nothing I loved more than curling up in a patch of sunshine and getting lost in a story.

The latest addition to my book collection is The Complete Sherlock Holmes from Barnes and Noble. In a single hardcover volume, you get 3 Novels and 2 Short Story Collections; in all, 695 pages of anticdotes from the dry-witted observer whose name is synonomous with good detective work. From The Hound of the Baskervilles, to A Study in Scarlet, all the favourites are there. With this mix of short stories and novels ranging from a few pages to a few chapters, you're sure to always have time for a good mystery.

In addition to Sir Conan Doyle's work, editor Kyle Freeman offers much insight into Holmes' world through a well-written introduction, and helful footnotes that decode quaint terms along the way.

This is a well put together volume, and I highly recommend it!
