    3.5 stars. The Five Orange Pips is a classic Sherlock Holmes story, published in 1891, and then anthologized in the The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes set (which you can read online or download free here at Project Gutenberg).
    description
    A young man, John Openshaw, comes to visit Sherlock and Dr. Watson. He tells them that four years ago his uncle, a bitter recluse who lived for many years in America before returning to England, had received a letter postmarked from Pondicherry, India. When he opens the envelope, five dried-up orange seeds fall out. The envelope is otherwise empty ... but then John and his uncle notice that the letters K.K.K are written on it. John's uncle shrieks in horror, saying that his sins have overtaken him. Seven weeks later his uncle is found dead, drowned in a small garden pond, an apparent suicide.

    The uncle's property is inherited by John's father, who similarly receives an envelope inscribed K.K.K., with five orange seeds, instructing him to ‘Put the papers on the sundial.’ He dies three days later in what looks like an accidental fall. And now John himself has received a similar letter and five orange pips. What to do?

    This is a far better story than the last two in this anthology. It's got a lot of atmosphere and, again, shows a more human and fallible side to Sherlock Holmes. What it isn't, is a very well thought-out mystery. Arthur Conan Doyle took the idea of the KKK and then ran with it, creating whatever fictional details he liked (like the threatening five orange seeds) with a supreme disregard for actual facts about the KKK. Sir Arthur, we all wish that the KKK had collapsed in 1869!

    The mystery has a lot of logical holes in it and doesn't really bear close examination; Doyle apparently dashed it off quickly without thinking it through too deeply. If you want to know more about those holes and the background of the story, there's a great summary and analysis here by a Sherlock Holmes fan, worth reading after you've read this story. (The best part of the analysis is toward the bottom of his web page, under Plot Holes and Continuity Errors.) Or you can just read this story and appreciate it for what it is. :) Doyle liked it: he rated it #7 on his own list of favorite Sherlock Holmes stories. The list is in the comment thread to this review.

    Next Sherlock adventure: The Man with the Twisted Lip. Sounds creepy!

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would write the short stories to fit perfectly into a single edition of the Strand Magazine. The stories were normally fast paced, but also easy to follow. The Five Orange Pips though, is perhaps constrained by its length, because the reader cannot use the evidence provided to solve the case. There are a number of elements that only Holmes is privy to, and are only revealed when Holmes reveals the solution to Watson.

    At the same time, the modern reader will have some advantages over the Victorian reader, as the letters KKK, which strongly feature in the storyline, are more recognisable today, than they were a hundred years ago.

    The Five Orange Pips does provide further insight into the character of Sherlock Holmes. In all the previous cases the superiority of Holmes has been evident, but in this case, Holmes is shown not to be infallible, and to a certain degree fails in bring the case to a conclusion. The Five Orange Pips also shows for the first time that Holmes is not just cold and logical, but also from time to time, he will also display anger.

    The concept of The Five Orange Pips has been used recently in both the American TV series Elementary, and the BBC series Sherlock; although in the case of Sherlock there is no real link to the original storyline.

    I like that this short story was not wrapped up nice and tidy. It showed Sherlock Holmes was, in fact, a mere mortal. This is the most human he has seemed so far in my readings, especially when he first finds out about the murder of Openshaw. He takes it so hard. It is not just that he could not prove his deduction right but also that someone else has paid the price for his failing. He tries to rectify the situation the only way he knows how but revenge still escapes him in the end.

  4. says:

    A Tragic Story, where Holmes fails even before starting. Dark and sinister forces are at play.

    I listened to this with an audiobook. I don't hate Southern American accents (in fact, I rather like them), but this narrator's voice was distracting. He made Holmes' accent a southern, high-pitched sound that I really didn't like. But it was a free book, so enough of my complaints.
    The book was very short (the audiobook lasted for only 40 minutes) but it wasn't a very exciting or thought-provoking case. (view spoiler)[ The victim who came to Holmes actually died. And then it mentions Holmes was shook but then he's like Wow, that hurt my pride, moving on xD I don't know what to make of it! (hide spoiler)]

    Only three stars this time. (I am currently reading all the Sherlock Holmes stories.)

    In this one, Holmes is out to solve a mystery involving a man who has received five orange pips, or seeds, in an envelope, along with the initials KKK written on it. Okay, any American would right away say we know who the KKK are. Holmes does, too, but needs to explain it all to Watson. (Does Watson never read a newspaper? Any history?) (view spoiler)[

    Haha, so anyhow, after the man receives the pips, he dies a few weeks later.

    There's more, and it involves the man's nephew, who wants to figure out what's going on and why. Problem is that in this story Holmes fails. YES, he fails. He doesn't save the man's nephew - who came to him with the mystery in the first place - because he acts too late. Yes, TOO late! Holmes does 'solve' the mystery and identify the evil-doers, but they aren't punished because of other extenuating circumstances. For Holmes it's a miserable disappointment in more ways than one.

    Which, ironically, is one of the reasons many Holmes fans like this story so much - because it shows the man's fallibility! There are also multiple errors in this one which the 'Grand Game' members love to pick apart and point out. The errors don't take away from the story, however, and this is said to be one of the best, but meh, I think three stars is fair enough.

    (Btw, the 'Grand Game' is made up of devoted readers, including experts from all fields of science, who study and investigate every tiny possible minute detail in the Holmes' stories for 'errors.' They work from the POV that Watson and Holmes are - or were - real people and take it from there. The first of these were four brothers who wrote Doyle with a list of criticisms about this very story. Good old Sir Conan thought it amusing, and even silly that anyone would take his work so seriously, though he did admit that the story was quickly, and somewhat 'carelessly' written.)

    The Five Orange Pips is the fifth story in the The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes story collection, the third publication in the Sherlock Holmes series (after the first two novels, so the first story collection).

    Holmes is visited by a terrified young man who has received an envelope containing five orange pips... the same sort of envelope both his father and his uncle received, just days before their deaths.

    The first story, I think, that showed it's age a little but still great.

    Ah!!! The wheel turns!!!!!

    5 Words: Perfect length for a cuppa.

    Quite a bitter-sweet ending to this one, with no clear indication as to whether Holmes was right or not. Which was honestly a little frustrating.

    But my faith in the character tells me he is right.

  10. says:

    Yet another classic from sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A truly great writer who deserves the title of (sir) which was granted to him.
