The Secret Adversary

by Agatha Christie

This early Christie is a good example of her early style, rambunctious and unsophisticated. As in The Man in the Brown Suit, this rollicking tale abounds in the most unexpected coincidences and improbabilities, which she became more reticent to use as her style developed. A fun read, nevertheless.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

The writing is, of course, splendid, and the stories timeless. Young people need to read older stories like these to discover that not all entertainment needs to be hyper-paced hyperaction. I'll give it 4 stars based on carelessness in the production of this e-version: the Table of Contents is not linked to the stories, so finding a specific story is awkward. (The best way is to Search for a portion of the title.) I'm basing this critique on the Kindle (.azw) version.

Les affinites electives

by Johann Wolfgang Goethe

This translation leaves out all French accents, so it isn't really French. This needs to be fixed.
