    Uncomfortable with the imperialistic tone. Story is good

  • Awesome Book

    By NiccoCapotosto
    Sign of Four was fantastic. Doyle's action packed writing keeps the reader interested. I just wish the book was longer. The ending was mildly unsatisfactory.
  • Good as it is

  • Holmes!!!

    By Mego Joe
    The Sherlock Holmes stories by A.C. Doyle are always intriguing and the true precursor to the modern detective story. Whether you like Jim Rockford or Endeavor Morse, you will find Holmes pleasing. While Watson is certainly more narrator than participant, it is always enjoyable to imagine a competent Watson instead of the incredulous Nigel Bruce of the well-known movie series. Definitely recommend this and all the Doyle stories to fans of the RDJ/Jude Law films and PBS viewers. The game is afoot!

    It is always refreshing to step back and visit old writing in its original state. The style was vey matter of fact and it gives you an incredible sense of the era and values associated with it. A thoroughly enjoyable read and one that has stood the test of time.

    As in most of these books, Doyle is a wonderful wordsmith. In this book, however, I lost interest in the telling of the treasure finding and the process of bringing the treasure to England. Roger
  • I really like these books

    I have read the first two books and now I'm a Sherlock Holmes fan. I'll read all the books, that's for sure.
