A single story and definitely far from the best of the Holmes' series.
Curious: slightly patriotic-propagandistic although nicely written despite it lacks the Holmes' typical mystery and charm.
The book is divided into two uite different parts, although both full of thrill and adventure.
In the first part one also finds very humorous moments as it prtrays Holmes slightly less sophisticated than what he later becomes.
The second part is moving with drama and action.
I started reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle many years ago (in school) and some of the short stories in this collection I remembered well. Others I "re-discovered".
I am amazed at how Conan Doyle managed to captivate me as a child and still manges to do the same now.
He was a superb storyteller and this selection is full of unease and mystery.
