The God of the Hive: A novel of suspense featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes
Excellent story telling as usual
Well written story of Mary Russell's adventures with a small girl while her husband, Sherlock Holmes takes care of the wounded father of the girl. The story is engrossing and hard to put down.
The Language of Bees
Russell and Holmes at Their Collective Best!
As a fan of Conan Doyle's original Holmes' stories I have never been a big fan of the pastiche novels (although Nicholas Meyer's "West End Horror" is worth a read) that became so popular in the 70's. A favorable review of "Justice Hall" by Laurie King convinced me to give her a work a chance. I began with the "Beekeeper's Apprentice" and was instantly hooked. Make no mistake - these are ...
The Complete Sherlock Holmes (Collection of all his adventures, 9 Volumes in one Book)
Fair Price Classics, 2007
Really complete Sherlock Holmes
I was looking for a complete Sherlock Holmes, with all the short stories and the four novels in one volume. I also wanted the original Signey Paget illustrations. This book has them both and it is an excellent value. The quality of the images is quite good and the page thickness is not so bad that the book ends up being a foot thick. Overall an excellent book.
Java Concurrency in Practice

Addison-Wesley Professional, 2006
Great book! Highly recommended.
Before purchasing this book I borrowed it from a friend. Unfortunately he needed it back before I could finish, but it didn't matter because I had already decided it should be part of my Java book collection. It fits right in with my other two favorite Java books, Effective Java and Java Puzzlers. This book does a great job of explaining concurrency in the Java language and the best practices. ...

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Public Domain Books, 1999
I am always impressed with these type of books.
As all good Sherlock Holmes books, they keep you guess at what is is going on. The at the end it makes you feel silly because it is all just elemetary to the novice. This is a must read and for the price you can't beat it. I am always looking for books along the same type.
The Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection
Bedford Park Books, 2010
Excellent Kindle Book at an Unbeatable Price
This book is jammed packed with all of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries; each and every story ever published, as advertised. And each story is linked as well, so moving around the chapters and short stories is a breeze, unlike in many of the other Kindle versions out there. The layout is clean and neat, and there are even illustrations throughout, which some stories call for, as Holmes refers to ...
Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Collection (Every Sherlock Holmes story written by Doyle!)
ignacio hills press (TM) IgnacioHillsPress.com and e-Pulp Adventures (TM), 2008
sherlock holmes addict
Even long time, die hard afficionados of "Sherlock Holmes" will appreciate this collection. I have hard cover copies of all the works pertaining to Holmes, in my home library (well and often read over the years) but I love having them on my Kindle.
The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science
Wonderful stories of science and art in the Romantic Age
This book is a fascinating voyage back to the Romantic Age in Europe when there were still far flung parts of the globe to explore, most of the chemical elements awaited discovery, and time and space were found to be much vaster than anyone had expected. Even more wonderfully, scientists and artists were not naturally at odds--chemist Humphry Davy and poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge were friends, ...
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Public Domain Books, 2009
Eleven exciting Holmes stories
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a number of books, but to me, nothing really worked like his Sherlock Holmes mysteries. The characters are believable, and one begins to think that one almost knows them. The characters in Doyle's other books just don't have the same character. I've read all these stories before, but I had forgotten how they all turn out at the end. They are perfect for reading ...
The Beekeeper's Apprentice: Or On the Segregation of the Queen/A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and ...
Laurie R. King
Wonderful, satisfying, completely successful return of Holmes
Many reviews here detail aspects of plot and character development. I will simply say briefly that: 1) Holmes is beautifully rendered and true to Arthur Conan Doyle's vision. 2) Mary Russell is a wonderful character and a witty, insightful, delightful narrator. 3) The relationship between Holmes and Mary is developed with an emotional richness and truth which made me run, not walk, to ...
Make It Right: Inside Home Renovation (Trade Paperback)
A go-to book--plus hubbie has a man crush on the guy.
I'm surprised by how much of a reference book this has become. So far, we've pulled it out to see what kitchen cabinets to look at, used the great chart for green and cost-effective kitchen counters, how many amps to upgrade the electric box and how to choose a gas furnace. And, we've just had the book for about a month. The Make It Right philosophy has permeated our life and we've felt far ...
The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
Public Domain Books, 2000
Wild Story, Little Deduction
Well, generally, readers of Sherlock Holmes are looking for some great detective work; the piecing together of a few scant clues to piece together a puzzle of a crime. This story, while wildly imaginative and unexpected, does little to build a tapestry of deduction and instead settles on mild suspense. ***Spoiler Alert*** The "Adventure" at Wisteria Lodge is a bizarre set of ...
Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Illustrated Collection (mobi)
The great thing about the Kindle is that it lures you into checking out material you might not have considered before because of the price (or the heft) of a volume. I never knew Dr. Watson was wounded in Afghanistan. There's a modern detail for you. Or, really (despite the movie), that Sherlock was hopelessly addicted to intravenous cocaine. But it's the writing and the plotting that makes the ...
Sherlock Holmes : The Complete Novels and Stories (Bantam Classic) Volume I
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
It was such a pleasure to revisit some of these classic tales again for the first time since my teenage days. In addition to being packed full of brilliant stories, I really liked the format of the book as well -- although it's thick (just over 1000 pages) it's small and compact, which is good because you won't be able to put it down and thus will end up taking it with you everywhere you go! At ...
Works of Arthur Conan Doyle. (200+ Works) The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes, The Professor ...
I've bought about four or five of these complete works collections from this publisher. They are all exactly what they claim to be: the complete works of the author. For someone who doesn't want to be nickeled and dimed to death, these are a phenomenal value.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Public Domain Books, 2004
A realistic biography
Oliver Wendell Holmes describes Emerson as an intellectual mystic, as opposed to an emotional one. This probably places Emerson very much in line with Holmes' own temperament -- this Holmes is the father of the famous and intellectually accomplished Supreme Court justice; Holmes, Sr. was himself a medical doctor and man of letters in New England. What Holmes describes as intellectual mysticism ...
The Way to a Man's Heart (The Miller Family Series)
Harvest House Publishers
What a great story! I've never read Mary Ellis before, but this book shows what a great author she is. So many unexpected things happened in this book, it sure kept me on toes. I highly recommend it.
A Terrible Thing Happened - A story for children who have witnessed violence or trauma
Margaret M. Holmes
Sasha J. Mudlaff
Versatile and on point
One of the great things about using this book in therapy with young kids is that it is ambiguous enough to allow them to think about their own trauma--whatever it might be. I often change the phrase that he "saw" a terrible thing to just "he had a terrible thing happen" to allow for kids to relate even better. When it's the right book for a kid they want to read it over and over.
Sherlock Holmes Volumes I and II
Bantam Classics, 2003
I own these as soft covers, and ALL the stories and novels are in the 2 volume collection. However, when I received this kindle edition, the table of contents did not include all of the stories and did not have all of the novels. I really wanted to read Hound of the Baskervilles, but it just wasn't in the table of contents! How could they sell this AND NOT have everything listed?! How can I ...
