      The birth of a legend This is ite novel in which Sir Arthur ushered the world s greatest second best detective after Batman into our collective consciousness Being the non conformist rebel that I am, I started off bassackwards by reading The Valley of Fear and then The Adventure of the Final Problem because those were the two stories with Moriarty in them Shocking, I know, but that s just how I roll Btw, it still really chaffs my cheeks that Doyle wrote 56 short stories and 4 novels about Holmes [...]

      Arthur Conan Doyle s first Sherlock Holmes novel is utterly unimpressive In short, the book starts like this image error and mid way turns into this And I am not even joking The novel begins with Holmes and Watson meeting, moving into their Baker Street apartment and then investigating a murder of a man found in an abandoned house At the half point, however, the story completely changes its course and becomes the most awkward introduction of the murderer s back story and motives involving Mormon [...]

      Sherlock Holmes and the case of the Killer Mormons But about that laterOk, the big deal about this one is that you get to see the Sherlock Watson meet cute I mean, this is one of the most important meetings in the history of all literature Come on, people Get excited It s only fair to mention that I ve read and reread all of these stories a bjillion times, and these are by far my favorite classic characters.Well, except for Lizzie Mr DarcyBut I know I haven t read PP as many times as I have She [...]

      SO I DID IT CONGRATULATE ME I read an adult book and a classic and I survived flings confetti over self Okay, except that actually I listened to an audio and I m 100% sure the audio is the only reason I survived it, because, gawshwhile it s incredibly interesting, it s written so incredibly boringly The writing is potato That s all I can say Maybe I m not appreciating the arts but the whole thing is like a monologue Where are the scenes Where is the development Gah And then halfway through, it j [...]

    6. Henry Avila says:

      This nifty novel really a novella the first Sherlock Holmes book written in 1887, is rather strange since it is set both in the culture, of brimming Victorian London, 1881, and thedry , very hot desolate deserts of the savage wastelands of Utah, 1847 , nothing here there was a state established there or giving that name Or even part of the United States, since technically still Mexican territory , neglected by them and ruled by the Ute Indians hence the appropriate appellation The almost forgott [...]

      An anti reviewI don t read reviews of books, of which I am damn sure I will be reading it very soon Now, I don t know how this habit affects my reading.So, what happened wasI was not aware of the fact that I had to be surprised when the second part of the book starts and wonder what happened to the story with Sherlock Holmes in it and how that mystery was solved Moreover, I had to wonder whether the second part was from some other book, somehow got binded in my copy and curse the publishers I wa [...]

      Mysteries are my go to palette cleanser in between denser reads I have a few go to series, but as my current contemporary series may be winding down, I am always on the lookout for mysteries both old and new Even though the phrase elementary, my dear Watson, has become part of the vernacular, I have never read a single Sherlock Holmes story Looking to alleviate that, I decided to encounter Holmes and Watson when they first met in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s first novella, A Study in Scarlet, compos [...]

      Gregson and Lestrade had watched the maneuvers of their amateur companion with considerable curiosity and some contempt They evidently failed to appreciate the fact, which I had begun to realize, that Sherlock Holmes s smallest actions were all directed towards some definite and practical end.This is the first Sherlock Holmes story, a novel which introduces the now legendary detecting team of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson Watson is looking for a roommate and is introduced to Holmes with some war [...]

    11. Jeff says:

      This is an underwhelming debut for one of literature s most famous characters Doyle s Sherlock is in the nascent stage here and isn t the fully fleshed out character, readers came to know The steady and reliable narrator, Dr John Watson gets introduced to Holmes in Watson s attempts to find a roommate Can two odd Victorian Era men share a flat without driving each other crazy Sure, why not.Watson takes measure of Holmes Although the illustration below belies it, the producers of the TV show pret [...]

      There is no satisfaction in vengeance unless the offender has time to realize who it is that strikes him, and why retribution has come upon him Sherlock Holmes is a legend I ve watched movies and TV shows, heard stories and read adaptions, but to this day I never read the original work I wondered if original Sherlock would own up to BBC Sherlock, and so he did But while their personalities are quite similiar, their stories still differ a lot, which was to be expected I have to admit that I got a [...]

      Not related to the book yetThis is the book that completes my 2011 Reading Challenge 275 books and I still have 3 days to spare My first target was 200 because that was the the annual target of the author Nicholas Sparks as he said in one of his interviews But I achieved it in September so I changed it to 250 But I achieved 250 on the last week of October and I thought I could still read 25 So, here I am, proud that I was able to read 275 books Last year, I only read 196 books and I did not top [...]

      Mormons and murder, aaaiiieeeee For those who prefer their Sherlock Holmes served up pure and without digression and I am one , it is possible to skip over the long omniscient passage entitled The Country of the Saints without losing the scarlet thread of murder Indeed, rare is the reader who can resist the temptation to leapfrog the Great Alkali Plain and learn the fate of the person responsible for the singlular expression of horror and hatred on the dead man s face at No 3 Lauriston Gardens a [...]

      Sherlock Holmes is a dick And I don t mean that as a reference to the character being a private detective Sure, he may be brilliant, but he s also arrogant, condescending, cold, rude, self absorbed and generally an insufferable douche bag If Watson wasn t such a brown noser, he d have snapped and pimp slapped the shit out of Holmes about five minutes after meeting him It d been a long time since I d read any of the stories, and I thought I d check some out after watching Robert Downey Jr play Ho [...]

      I realized recently that I never reread Sherlock Holmes I received collected SH for Christmas when I was nine, and read it all with the exception of Hound of the Baskervilles, which I skipped at the time because I was afraid it might involve bad things happening to dogs over vacation I enjoyed the stories very much but at this point only remember colorful details and quirky solutions some orange seeds, a secret snake, men with red hair, different colors of mud.I don t know what happened to that [...]

      3.85En esta brillante y corta historia, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle nos introduce al descarado y sumamente anal tico detective Sherlock Holmes y a su inseparable acompa ante, el doctor militar John Watson como dato, esto representa una de las m s grandes presentaciones en el mundo literario y cinematogr fico Doyle nos otorga un caso realmente misterioso, que conforme avanza la secuencia de los sucesos el lector espera ir resolviendo junto al gran detective Se nos otorgan pistas y revelaciones pero no [...]

      There s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it Here we have the first ever Sherlock Holmes mystery originally published in the magazine, Beeton s Christmas Annual in 1887 Read as part of a buddy reads twofer since apparently much of our group, including myself, is OCD and can t simply skip ahead to book two Although none of the four novels are connected it s still nice to see how it all [...]

    24. Geoff says:

      Detectives have artists eyes and artists have the eyes of detectives I don t think anyone knows how much I want to be Sherlock Holmes Aloof, apart, always observing, eyes wide open, untethered to worldly affairs beyond what immediacy makes necessity, quick tongued, lightning brained, spiffy dresser, grounded eccentric, sometimes passionate but never so much that the self is jeopardized, knows his enemies and masters them, instincts taut and fast and brutal like a bear trap, mysterious solver of [...]

      4.5 Let us see if there is justice upon the earth, or if we are ruled by chance I read all of Sherlock s adventures when I was around twelve and fell desperately in love And yet, I didn t think that rereading them would be such a riventing and, in a sense, demaning experience I rediscovered why I love this character and these stories I am rediscovering as if I needed further proof that I love absolutely everything about them writing, plot, pace, everything I have reread only A Study in Scarlet a [...]

    27. James says:

      This is where it all started the brilliance of Arthur Conan Doyle and the wonderful creation that is Sherlock Holmes along with Dr Watson and cast of supporting characters are all here and in fantastic form.Whilst less well known than other Holmes novel i.e Hound of the Baskervilles I do think that A Study in Scarlett is one of the strongest, is not the strongest in the series It is difficult to think of many literary characters who have had anything like the huge impact that Sherlock Holmes has [...]

    28. Evelyn (devours and digests words) says:

      I feel like I can finally settle down in peace knowing that I have read the most renowned classical detective novel before my death I ve been a big fan of all the Sherlock Holmes movies the ones with Robert Downer Jr and Jude Law as the casting but believe it or not, reading the ACTUAL classic books have never crossed my mind Until a few weeks ago when my insides have been craving for something Sherlock y and seeing all these Young Adult Holmes retellings are driving me nuts I knew I have to rea [...]

      So I ve been wanting to read the Sherlock Holmes series for quite some time now and what better place to start than the beginning A Study in Scarlet is the first of only four novels and shows the introduction of Dr Watson to Holmes who at the time is procuring the services of a rent boy, someone to share the rent that is.Watson is of course the narrator and Sherlock Holmes is quite possibly one of the most intriguing characters in literary history It is soon apparent to Watson that Sherlock Holm [...]
