Sherlock holmes volume 1 review
The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I by Arthur Conan DoyleEccentric, arrogant, and ingenious, Sherlock Holmes remains the worlds most popular and influential fictional detective. In four novels and fifty-six short stories, Holmes with his trusted friend Dr. Watson, steps from his comfortable quarters at 221B Baker Street into the swirling fog of London. Combining detailed observation with brilliant deduction, Holmes rescues the innocent, confounds the guilty, and solves the most perplexing puzzles crime has to offer.
Volume I of The Complete Sherlock Holmes begins with Holmess first appearance, A Study in Scarlet, a chilling murder novel complete with bloodstained walls and cryptic clues. This is followed by the baffling The Sign of Four, which introduces Holmess cocaine problem and Watsons future wife. Volume I also includes the story collections The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, and concludes with the tale The Final Problem, in which Conan Doyle, tired of writing Holmes stories, kills off his famed sleuth.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes [REVIEW/DISCUSSION] [SPOILERS]
The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I
Sherlock Holmes, the Victorian detective with an impressive ability for solving a case, is one of the most famous characters in English literature. The Complete Sherlock Holmes: Volume I is a great mystery book for first-time readers of Sherlock Holmes or for people already interested in mystery genre. Sherlock Holmes is one of the most well-developed literary characters of all time. Holmes is not just intellectual and rational; he is also very physically strong and an expert in martial arts. On the downside, he is very anti-social and often smokes the day away. He is egocentric and passionate. He is a character that the reader finds actually looking up to and respecting, despite his often rash actions.

I thought I only had it for about a month. Anyway, as what most of us here will agree with, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is such a genius for creating someone like Sherlock Holmes and for coming up with all his adventures set in 19th century London. It is indeed never too late to read a book as good as this one. I admire the author for his immeasurable writing skills and imagination, coming up with those bizarre cases and unusual methods of investigation which can only be carried out by none other than Sherlock Holmes and with the help of his most trusted friend, Dr. John Watson.
