Nineteenth Century Short Stories
Nineteenth Century Short stories covers a range of different tales and genres making every story differ from the next. All the tales are engaging and each one has an exciting adventure waiting for you to discover.
I really enjoyed this book because it is easy to pick up and put down.The tales are gripping, short and each one is different from the next. My favourite story was The Yellow Wallpaper because at the end you know just as much as you did at the beginning and only through careful study of the story can you understand what it means.
One of the best characters in this book is that of Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock is a detective created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and many tales have been written about Sherlock but only one short story appears in this book. The reason I like Sherlock Holmes so much is because he is a very intelligent guy with a very serious sense of humour. He doesn't ever do anything particularly funny just the way he does things feels humorous.
