Great stories of doctors life in 19th century

(4.5 stars)


(4 stars)

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

(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.
