The birth of a legend.... This is it...the 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 t...

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 murde...

بالرغم من أعجابي الشديد بشخصية شيرلوك هولمز منذ الصغر بسبب مسلسل الانيمي الشهير في الثمانينات والذي قدم بشكل "كلب"، بينما بنفس الوقت قدمه ديزني بشكل فأر، في فيلم وكوميكس بمجلة ميكي وبعد سنوات طويلة، شاهدت بالصدفة فيلم شيرلوك هولمز لروبرت داوني جونيور..لم أتحمس له بالبداية، لكنه أيضا جذبني بذكاء الح...

Sherlock Holmes and the case of the Killer Mormons! But more about that later... Ok, 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...

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, gawsh...while it's incredibly interesting, it's written so incredi...

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 the dry , very hot desolate deserts of the savage wastelands of Utah, 1847 , nothing here...before there was a state...

A STUDY IN SCARLET!!! First group-read for the intact official Non-Crunchy-Sans Pants- for no reason that I can figure out...but none-the-less...NON pants wearing GRs classic reading group. [image error] I read A STUDY IN SCARLET waaaaaaaay back in my younger days- and remembered very little of it...

An anti-review I 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 was.. I was not aware of the fact that “I had to be surprised when the second part of the book starts and wonder what happe...

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...

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. Th...
