Book #12: The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb and Other Cases by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Number of pages: 357

This is another compilation of 13 Sherlock Holmes stories, taken from different books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There were just four that I'd never before, although I had forgotten what happened in most of the others. I liked the fact that there was a good mixture of murder stories and other mysteries.

I overall enjoyed it, including the stories that I'd not come across yet, and liked the fact that the final story, The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter featured Sherlock's brother Mycroft.

The only issue I had was that there were a couple of stories where I had to re-read the endings because they were a bit hard to follow (the hardest one for me was The Adventure of the Golden Prince-Nez, which I must have read about three times).

Next book: Just Do Something (Kevin L. DeYoung)
