The mysteries are secondary to the enjoyment, though many of them do prove to have distinct elements of interest otherwise why would the great detective have bothered himself about them? All of these are definitely absurd books, books which one is more inclined to laugh at than with, and which were hardly taken seriously even by their authors; yet they have survived, and will probably continue to do so.
