The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes, #4)

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes, #4)The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is your basic Sherlock Holmes from start to finish.  These are some of the short stories arranged in a way that shows Sherlock over his long career.  The stories are as fresh as they were 100 years ago.  While I know that there are some of the confident deductions Holmes makes could have other explanations, it is still pretty remarkable that a detective would even look at these clues.

I am using the stories as material for my homeschooled granddaughter to teach her how to think deductively.  I hope to inspire her to try to figure out things for herself instead of waiting for information from the adults around her.  She's pretty good at it and enjoys the challenge.
