From the short stories I read so far, my favorite was The Five Orange Pips. I liked it because the case seemed so mysterious I was wondering how he could ever solved it, but in the end everything was explained and my mind was blown lol
Oh wow, there are too many to choose from. I haven't read The return or memoirs of sherlock holmes but still...
Well, among the short stories I liked Scandal in Bohemia, but then again that may just be because of Adler's many different and I add, extensive portrayal in movies. Whenever I try to picture her, it's always the BBC version that comes up.
"Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound!" I guess the one that really stuck to me was The hound of Baskervilles. It was the very first Sherlock Holmes story I read. I couldn't forget that one line... unless I've just misquoted it? Lol.
