(2.5 stars)

Some stories didn't have much to do with doctors. Some revolved around sentiment & love. From the title I expected doctors & medicine to be the focus of every story. The 2 chapters by Suprata were difficult to fully follow.


(4 stars)

A delightful collection of tales from the fertile mind of ACD. Most of the readers were good.

(5 stars)

As usual, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle at his best👍🏼

Great stories of doctors life in 19th century
