The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a book by Arthur Conan Doyle with twelve short stories about his made-up detective, Sherlock Holmes. It came out for the first time on October 14, 1892. Between June 1891 and July 1892, each story was published in The Strand Magazine. The stories are not in order of time, and Holmes and Dr. Watson are the only characters who appear in all twelve.
From Watson’s point of view, the stories are told in the first person. Most of the time, the stories in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes point out societal wrongs and try to fix them. Holmes is portrayed as a new kind of justice that is fairer. The stories were liked, and the number of people subscribed to The Strand Magazine increased. This meant that Doyle could ask for more money for his next set of stories.
The first story, “A Scandal in Bohemia,” features a character named Irene Adler. Doyle only wrote about her in this one story, but she is a major character in modern adaptations of Sherlock Holmes, usually as Holmes’s love interest. Doyle chose “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” as his favorite of the twelve stories in this collection. He also chose “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” as his favorite Sherlock Holmes story.
