Wow. I enjoyed that more than I was expecting. I read the previous 3 books (Study in Scarlet, Sign of Four, Adv. of SH) last year and while I enjoyed them, I wouldn't rate them as high as this one.

With that in mind, I am going to do my first re-read of the year: The Hound of the Baskervilles. I read this many years ago and remember enjoying it, but it had been my only exposure to Holmes and I was a bit turned off by the experience last year. Now, I am hopeful that his later works are closer to the Memoirs than the Adventures and I will really enjoy them too.

Note: I have been reading from the copies prepared for MR by HarryT. It is excellently formatted, although I wish it had better chapter breaks so I could quickly jump between stories, I am not savvy enough with Calibre to fix that issue. It also has very few other errors. I can only remember one right now and it was just a matter of a single letter ("me" instead of "my"?).

It looks like I may need to find a different source for the Case-Book when I get there, I hadn't realized there were portions that are not in the public domain here yet until reading some of the discussion above, but I will worry about when I get there, I have a while yet.
