    • This was a very strong story up to the last couple pages, when suddenly the end. Not using an exclamation point, even, because it was so anticlimactic. Intellectually and emotionally unsatisfying.

    • I thought I knew the basic premise of this story when I started it, but it turns out I knew the whole thing. This incredibly slim volume is considered the final of only four novels in the Sherlock Holmes series. There are many additional short stories. Written from Watson’s point-of-view we see an increasingly paranoid Sherlock taking extreme measures to escape his arch-nemesis Dr. Moriarty. The pair, one an unconventional, brilliant detective, the other a criminal mastermind are perfectly mat [...]


    • The most dissapointing Sherlock I've ever read. There was no detective work or plot whatsoeverIt seems like Arthur Conan Doyle literally just wrote it to (view spoiler)[ kill off Sherlock. <\spoiler> probably not even a spoiler (hide spoiler)]


    • شيرلوك في صراع مع البروفيسير جيمس مورياتي عالم الرياضيات الشهير يخبر واتسون بذلك و يخبره ايضًا بأن مورياتي اذكى منه و انه إذا ما اوقع بمورياتي سيكون هذا اهم انجاز في حياته فيأتي هنا دور واتسون الذي يقترح على شيرلوك الذهاب في رحلة حول اوروبا حتى لايستطيع مورياتي تقفي آثاره و [...]


    • This is, without a doubt, the best Sherlock Holmes short story I have read so far. I would have given it 5 stars if I had read the story before watching the BBC version but I'm sorry to say that I haven't.Moriarty in the originalsMoriarty in the BBC seriesBesides the fact that the original Moriarty is not half as attractive as the modern one, he was overall quite disappointing. He lacked character depth and that psychotic weirdness that was so evident and intriguing in the BBC version. The Adven [...]


    • I was inspired to read this infamous Sherlock Holmes adventure after watching the BBC modern day rendition of "Sherlock", aired this past Sunday (1/15/2012). Although Sir Arthur Conan Doyle meant this to be the final adventure of Sherlock Holmes, I'm glad he left the plot shrouded in enough mystery to allow for the eventual resurrection of this brilliant detective with definite personality issues. Additionally, although I may have found Conan-Doyle's portrayal of James Moriarty frustratingly eni [...]


    • "He is the Napoleon of crime, Watson. He is the organizer of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city. He is a genius, a philosopher, an abstract thinker. He has a brain of the first order. He sits motionless, like a spider in the center of its web, but that web has a thousand radiations, and he knows well every quiver of each of them. He does little himself. He only plans". Holmes on Moriarty. The final adventure.


    • 5 Words: Perfect length for a cuppa.Finally, the story I've been waiting for.Sigh.I don't really know what to say. But it's probably the best of stories I've read.


    • Kind of a disappointing introduction to Moriartyhe's always portrayed as Sherlock's absolute nemesisd while it's certainly the same way within the story it goes by so quickly it's almost a blink and you'll miss it encounter.



    • This story, set in 1891, introduces Holmes's greatest opponent, the criminal mastermind Professor James Moriarty.Holmes arrives at Dr. John Watson's residence one evening in a somewhat agitated state and with grazed and bleeding knuckles. He has apparently escaped three murder attempts that day after a visit from Professor Moriarty, who warned Holmes to withdraw from his pursuit of justice against him to avoid any regrettable outcome. First, just as he was turning a street corner, a cab suddenly [...]


    • When The Final Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was first published, it had long been established that the adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's celebrated sleuth Sherlock Holmes was made up of fifty-six short stories and four novels. There had also long been rumors of various other materials by Doyle that had never been collected and published in one volume. Peter Haining hunted down some of the most elusive items and brought them all together in this book. And what we have is a grand mish-mash o [...]


    • From BBC Radio 4 Extra:John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson and Orson Welles star in the great detective's encounter at the Reichenbach Falls.In this adventure, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had hoped to kill the sleuth off, but the public outcry was such that he had to resurrect the character.John Gielgud plays Sherlock Holmes with Ralph Richardson as Dr Watson. In the series, Holmes brother - Mycroft - was played by Gielgud's brother, Val.Co-produced with the American Broadcasting Company, the influence of [...]


    • Hey, I'd read anything by Arthur Conan Doyle or about Sherlock Holmes that I can put my hands on but claiming that these 12 pieces ought to be added to the Holmesian canon (as Peter Haining did) is straining credibility too much as those stories are either not featuring Holmes, are not written by Doyle or aren't all that good in the first place. A book for the completist but not for anyone just vaguely interested in the great detective.


    • Another addition to my studies of A.C. Doyle and his Sherlock Holmes. This week's reading was much better than last week's, but WOW, Sherlock dies???? But, our professor says he reappears 8 years later to explain his death to Watson. I enjoyed my introduction to the despicable Professor Moriarty!In class today, we had a guest speaker about raising bees because it was a hobby of Sherlock Holmes. It, too, was extremely interesting.On to Hound of Baskervilles for 2 weeks discussions.


    • Is this it? Is this very short and not very well written story, clearly designed to kill a character an author no longer wants to write about in the quickest possible way, the whole basis for all those long television programs, movies and fan fiction/spin off novels? I feel robbed.


    • This story puts Sherlock Holmes abilities under serious scrutiny when he is confronted by the best criminal personality (Professor James Moriarty) in England, one that has attempted more than once to slaughter Sherlock Holmes.




    • This is probably one of the best sherlock holmes stories.I have to admit that I cried a little bit toward the endConan Doyle was/is a genius. All my respects to this man.



    • The Adventure of the Final Problem by Arthur Conan Doyle is the eleventh story in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Just like the rest of the Sherlock Holmes stories it is told in the perspective of Dr. John H. Watson. The Final Problem is also the book where Conan Doyle gets tired of writing Sherlock Holmes stories and kills him off.(view spoiler)[In the Final Problem Sherlock tells Watson that he has finally met his match with Dr. Morality. Sherlock then tells Watson about Morality's visit and s [...]

    • I finally got to the story of how Sherlock first encounters his ultimate opponent, Professor Moriarty. From years of reading and watching different versions of the Sherlock Holmes stories, I've long known that Moriarty was the end game for Sherlock. What I did not know was how brief the encounter in Doyle's original story actually was. Doyle obviously was ready to move on from Sherlock Holmes so he put together this final problem, which Sherlock was indeed able to solve. Unfortunately, solving t [...]


    • 2.5I was not expecting to only read from Moriarty only in this book, it feels rushed and I don't feel the kind of planning and destruction that I always supposed - by the Jeremy Brett series nor all of the other adaptations/inspirations- confront this two great characters. From this chapter, even dough emotional, I cannot help but feel disappointed at the presented stupidity from Moriarty- he is exposed really fast and even dough he seems to still have people at his charge he is the one who goes [...]


    • I really liked this, I think I am beginning to understand the language a lot more. The ending surprised me, but didn’t really upset me. Tears only began to form in my eyes when I started to compare the similarities between quotes and events from the stories to the BBC adaption of Sherlock (Which has ruined my life 🙃🙃) because I feel such a strong connection to those versions of the characters, so strong that I feel as if I love them so much it hurts. Overall, a good story, but a little a [...]


    • "Danger is the part of my trade."SHERLOCKED!!!It would have been much awesome if it included the reason behind the disappearing of Sherlock!Nevertheless, I hope to find more about that in 'THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES'Sherlock never seems to disappoint with his reasoning and detective skills.
