    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 o...

    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...

    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 es...

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 men...

    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 ...
