If you have an e-book reader you can get them for nothing at Project Gutenburg

Picked it up on New Years Eve... I had went to see the movie @ Odeon just a couple of days before and I was blown away by the movie (seriously, it's fantastic!) so the book was a must buy for just a quid! I RARELY ever read books (plenty of audiobooks on iPhone, though) so this will be the first read in, im ashamed to say, about 6-8 years.

Nice but if you want to buy the whole canon then it will cost you 9 pounds with this deal. On Amazon UK you can buy the complete illustrated Holmes for under five pounds.

I'm wanting to do my best to get into reading again, and Sherlock Holmes seems ideal, so if I were to go for the 'collection', is there any difference between the following two collections?

The first one is a hardcover. Wordsworth editions were previously very poor facsimile reporoductions of the stories from The Strand magazine, I believe that new edition however were completely re typeset with better quality images of the ilustrations.

Didnt even notice the hardcover bit.

So, either one should be fine then? I would probably be better off with the hardcover (im a bit of a klutz...) at only a couple quid more.

Isn't the film more of an entertaining 2009 action comedy 'interpretation' of Sherlock Holmes fiction of 100 years ago?

I don't want to put people off reading, though I fear disappointment....

The film isn't even based on a Sherlock Holmes story. For the best correlation of print and screen, with excellent portrayals of Holmes and Watson, watch the Jeremy Brett versions.

I have the collection of these books, bought them a while ago for about £20. Great books. Nice print. And the stories are fantastic. As for being like the new film, all the elements are there no matter what anyone says. Holmes is a fighter, as seen in both books and film, both Watson and Holmes are of equal status and mind, Watson was never a sidekick. And Holmes also wore a number of different hats, and never smoked a huge pipe ( This was so people could see his pipe in the theatres years ago)!
If you enjoyed the film, get these books. There will be a few that dissapoint, but also a few that will keep you enthralled for the entire adventure. This is expected tho, as there are 56 shorts in total!! Not all can be great!

Still, the books are wonderful (my favorite is The Sign of Four) and if the new movie gets people on to the orignal stories then so much the better.

My brother and I took our children (3 boys 10, 13 & 15) to see the movie, we all loved it!!!

The director stated that it is loosely based on several S.H. stories, but mainly the Sign of Four.

My favourite is The Hound of the Baskervilles. Plenty opportunities for camping it up, but would make a great film played straight - I'm thinking Andy Serkis as Holmes, Timothy Spall: Watson, Johnny Depp: Baskerville, Alfred Molina as the bad guy. And a big dog.
