Rated 5 out of 5 by from A timeless classic Sherlock Holmes is one of my favourite childhood heroes- I loved hearing about his adventures as a really small child and reading the books as an adult really makes me happy :) The literature is untouched and classic- truly one of my favourite books and authors of all time. And to the cover- well, who doesn't like BBC's Sherlock? :) 3 Can't wait to pick up the rest of the novels.
