Changed my opinion of Watson. Thought he was the "generally useless narrator" but really Sherlock's invaluable friend.

I can't wait to read the rest of the stories! I have read "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and loved it. And I have the best edition too. :D

It's quite a well read book and is the best Sherlock Holmes book I have read so far. I can't wait to receive the 2nd book from the library!!! Happy reading

Loved the movie? Read the book!
Watson and Holmes' relationship is entertaining and stunningly realistic!
Remember Irene Adler?
What if I told you that she wasn't the only woman Holmes was fascinated with- perhaps even in love with?
It's not a joke, and it's not a fanfiction- you HAVE to read this series!

ah the classics...I guess that's why they are called classics...find out why Robert Downey Jr, is acting so cooky...they'll be reading the book in a 100 years...the movie will go by the wayside in 10...it's hard to believe that Sherlock Holmes and Watson are not real...Doyle's writing is like the reality show of writing...I am constantly compelled to go to Wiki and find out about Sherlock's history. Sherlock's technique is amazing...he was practicing forensic medicine before anyone else...if only he were real in the time of Jack the Ripper. But Conan Doyle, the author, IS real and his son Adrian claims that he was Sherlock in a way. Sherlock is also modeled after a few other characters in Doyle's time. Conan Doyle always leaves a few bits and pieces about the Holmes history to keep you going...there is Mycroft...and did you know that Sherlock was fascinated with two women, not just one.
