One of my favs is the Blue Carbuncle, mostly because I always enjoy shows depicted during Christmas. The Second Stain is another good one as it shows Holme's "human" side.

Definately Hound of the Baskervilles. The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, The Gloria Scott, The Engineer's Thumb and The Musgrave Ritual are all excellent. My personal favorite is whichever one I'm reading at the time.

I would say "A Study in Scarlet",it was the first story I read of Holmes,I was about 14 at the time
and much impressed.It seemed to fit right in with the Geometry classes I was taking,the theroms
and the proofs.

I agree about Study in Scarlet. I'm re-reading the cannon in bits and pieces, and am currently on The Valley of Fear. I don't remember too much about that one, but I am certainly enjoying it.

As many others have said it is very hard to pick favorite even five of them let alone just one. But mine would have to be
1. The Priory school
2. Black Peter
3. The Blue Carbuncle
4. The Greek Interpreter
5. The Five Orange Pips

The Hound is definitely my all time favorite--as for choosing the next four, i can't do it--they are all tied for second--

I'm a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, I have also a tattoo of him!
this is a hard decision but if Ihave to choose one, probably I say "The valley of fear" for the novel, and "Silver Blaze", for the short story.
