Sherlock s drug addiction here and once again he masterfully explored the s drug addiction here and once again he masterfully explored the between Sherlock and Watson Afterwards a story about the influence of the Ku Klux Klan The Five Orange Pips elouently narrated by Watson as usual once again followed the pattern of a classic Holmes tale with an interesting plot and new layers of depth to the character of Sherlock Holmes Sadly enough it wasn t as uniue as Doyle wanted the story to appearAnother rather interesting little story but not outstanding or mind blowing was The
"adventure of the "of the Carbuncle enjoyable but nothing Therein Holmes has to deal with a stolen carbuncle appearing in the throat of a Christmas oose entering on the search for the real culprit The Speckled Band is one of the most well known stories in this collection and the hype this short story received is understandable due to its complex mystery and the stunning conclusion I liked the story myself However never before has Doyle confronted us with so many plot holes which ultimately disappointed me A story full of potential which was stripped from its credibility for the sake of cutting it short the story certainly provided home for potential than some of Doyle s full length novels The Adventure of the Engineer s Thumb deals with an engineer whose thumb is chopped off stinging Sherlock to work out the background of this new case The Noble Bachelor focuses on the disappearance of a Lord s bride immediately after the wedding ceremony uite an entertaining story with snarky Sherlock Holmes at his best and a stunning conclusion which once again made the reader feel as dumbfounded as John Watson about Sherlock s investigative talents The second last story The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet deals with the damage mysteriously inflicted to the coronet of a British earl and finally during the conclusion of the collection Doyle rises to fresh heights of his writing with The Adventure of the Copper Beeches breathing life into a suspenseful story surrounding a woman who assumes work at the mansion of a strange couple with dark secretsWhile most of these stories are independently enjoyable and memorable on their own added up on each other they amount to a collection of reat mysteries Doyle could have been proud of However for me the problem in etting through the ant.

Arthur Conan Doyle Õ 1 READRoduction I can t remember much about it now except that it ended with the moving sentiment I wish I were reading these stories for the first time I wish I were reading these stories for the first timeNever has a statement so effectively captured the sheer bliss of nose diving into an old and much cherished spot of literature What prompted me to revisit the series was BBC Entertainment s hugely popular and marvellously brilliant show SHERLOCK A fellow fan sharp reviewer and possessor of the prodigious talent to pick the perfect book Yes MithI am talking about you and yours truly were jamming up our Tumblr dashboards with the magnificence of a certain Mr Benedict Cumberbatch Said Cumberbatch has done a splendid job of yanking MrHolmes into modern day London and playing him with aplomb It doesn t hurt that he s very easy on the eyes tooErgo when Cumberbatch he of the cupid curls vertiginous cheekbones and manic eye Ambition and Accommodation: How Women View Gender Relations glint with his trusty bro mate Watson Martin Freemanraced the cover of yet another Sherlock edition I had to lay my hands on it All the foaming at the mouth fans and I mean that in the nicest way possible since I unashamedly head the pack can be forgiven for labouring under the misconception that this book here is a TV Series adaptation It s notSadlywell not really because KNOCK KNOCK it s Sherlock Holmes the ORIGINALthe book is a reprint of the twelve original mysteries as written by Sir Arthur Conan DoyleSo when Holmes is not marvelling over the cleverness of Irene Adler he s scratching his head over the sudden collapse of the Red Haired League Whether it s the trivial case of the Blue Carbuncle or the horrifying finale of the Speckled Band Holmes is striding about with a befuddled Watson in tow Dignities are being restoredgenteel ladies are being chivalrously rescuedand pages are being fraught with drama deceit and old fashioned danger In short everything that you would expect from the most famous detective of all fictional timesWhat could I write in my review that would add anything new to the reams that have been dedicated to the snarkiest sleuth of them all How do I delve into a character that s a delightful blend of humility and egotism How do I American Kinship: A Cultural Account gush and fawn over a mind that could dissect an individual down to the tiniest speck of dust on the tip of his frock coat From the moment a knock falls at the door of 221B Baker Street you know that you are in for a treat From the pithy to the sensational no case escaped the interest of Holmes and his partner in crime solving DrWatson Holmes would settle down before the roaring fireplace light his pipeive the despairing individual a clinical onceover draw his almost always correctconclusions and then just as uickly proceed to unravel mysteries on the strength of observation infallible logic and that essential spark of An Ethics of Interrogation genius cloaked in eccentricities In the times of darkly dreaming Dexter and stiletto wearing Detective Kate Beckett Holmes may pale in comparison And then againmaybe he won t In the cold of Victorian London amidst the ladies who sniffed into their lacy kerchiefs and theentleman who blustered around in their breeches Holmes cut a dashing figure With his dry wit and baffling disguises he plundered #The Murky Underbelly Ah How #murky underbelly ah how love my clich s of crime and almost always Ancestral Voices: Religion and Nationalism in Ireland got his manwomanmurderous cultYes we love our modern day detective dramas and high octane police chases We love the forensics lab with it s meticulously laid out tools We love the fact that a well worded Google search might just catch that horrendous serial killer by the end of the one hour episodeBut as Steven Moffat co creator of BBC Entertainment s Sherlock puts it Conan Doyle s stories were never about frock coats andas light they re about brilliant detection dreadful villains and blood curdling crimes and frankly to hell with the crinoline Other detectives have cases Sherlock Holmes has adventures and that s what matters After reading lengthy audiobooks like Vanity Fair I just wanted to readlisten to something short Then I saw the movie The Imitation Game highly recommended and I thought Of course Sherlock I suspect reviewing an anthology by listing all the stories and commenting on each of them is probably inelegant and amateurish but I never said I was a pro So the Animal Ecology game is afoot Let the jollification begin A Scandal in Bohemia Irene Adler is not Holmesirlfriend OK Stop shipping Sherene already sorry for this bout of Tumblrism One of the best known SH stories ever one with a reat twist Irene Adler is simply awesome She is possibly the inspiration for Catwoman Without spoiling anything I can tell you that she was never in any danger of being beheaded in the Middle East Actually Holmes probably fancies her a bit mostly for her brainThe Red Headed League Holmes vs The Deadly Gingers This is a three pipes problem according to Holmes This story is subtly funny in places Holmes and Watson even have a ood laugh at his dimwitted client s expenseA Case of Identity One of the comfy cases which Holmes can solve from his armchair Funny thing about this story is that while it is ood when I looked
At The Title Of The Story A Couple Days Laterthe title of the story a couple days later the Contents page I had no idea what it is about It s just too elementary Note to self This one is about a missing fianc who leaves his nice but dim bride at the altar he is not what he seemsThe Boscombe Valley Mystery Murder almost foul Number of pipes not specified probably not than four as the case involves a bit of traveling Holmes says something surprisingly religious here You are yourself aware that you will soon have to answer for your deed at a higher court than the AssizesThe Five Orange Pips A bit of an epic fail for Sherlock it s a reat story and Holmes did solve the case but the conclusion of the case is not one of his shining moments If you receive five orange pips in the post view spoileryou may as well kill yourself because even Holmes can t help you though he will avenge you which is not much of a consolation hide spoiler. Mia di mana Holmes berjumpa dengan wanita yang sangat dikaguminya sampai pengalamannya yang mendebarkan dalam Petualangan di Copper Beeches cara cara penyelesaian masalah yang dilakukannya sangat di luar dugaan sedangkan alur ceritanya sendiri benar benar sangat memukau. Hology proved to be the similar execution of each and every story All of them started with Sherlock and Watson sitting or conversing in Sherlock s home right before the case s new victim appeared in most cases on the story s second page After elaborately recounting their experiences in a way so explicitly formulated that they might have been the starting point of a story without Sherlock or Watson being present the second part of all the stories mainly consisted in Sherlock and Watson calling upon the location of the occurence right before the third part was used to allow Sherlock to narrate the real events leading up to the upcoming of the mystery based on his investigations Now and then the second step was even skipped if Sherlock started the investigation without Watson who was the first person narrator which resulted in us only being allowed to look at Sherlock s approach if Watson was present as well and it just bothered me to read the same concept over and over again only embedded in different plotlines And just as a footnote someone should have told Sherlock not to consider every single one of his cases as the Anarchist Modernism: Art, Politics, and the First American Avant-Garde greatest challenge of his career It became repetitive after a certain pointHowever The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes remains areat work and can be seen as a tribute to the wonderful and world wide famous characters of Holmes and Watson My only disappointment results in my shattered hopes that Mycroft Holmes brother or Moriarty Holmes archenemy might be introduced during one of these stories but my anticipation of meeting them obviously needs to wait slightly longer Up next on my Sherlock Holmes uest The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes I bought this at a library sale essentially on the principle of well I should read it Expectations of actually enjoying it Hm low Reality I m obsessedThe appeal in these stories comes in their brief nature They re easy to read before bedtime each night if you want to be incredibly cheesy I did Each one sets up and interesting premise and builds to an ending that you hardly ever see coming but always find satisfying In his epic video Sherlock Is Garbage and Here s Why hb Nothing compares to the original If you really want to know Holmes and Watson this is what you read The characterization and pacing is for me delightful The insights into a London of trains and mail than once a day the manners of the time the dialogue this is a feastVery honestly speaking none of the movie or television adaptations have ever Betting on Ideas: Wars, Inventions, Inflation given me the sensation of being there at Baker Street with Holmes and Watson that Iet from the original storiesRead them You owe it to yourself I ve been listening to Sherlock Holmes stories in the car and think I m Being after Rousseau: Philosophy and Culture in Question going too through and listen to all of them now I ve started with The Adventures and have enjoyed it immensely There must have been any number of psychological studies performed on Mr Holmes There is of course that wonderful line by Borges in his lectures on Verse in which he says that he believes in the Character of Sherlock Holmes without actually believing in any of the stories in which that character appears That is such a clever thing to say and I think it is also remarkably true Although as with most other true things I never seem to have too much trouble believing in the stories as they are being told If I was doing a #PSYCHOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF MR HOLMES SOMETHING OBVIOUSLY I M

stories Doyle s formula for his Sherlock storiesets a little bit worn and visible after you read several of them back to back But there are some jewels in this collection and they all have something to offer the interested reader even if it s only an insight into Sherlock s or Dr Watson s characters or Victorian societyMy full reviews for these stories are at the links but I ve posted my star ratings and brief comments here4 A Scandal in Bohemia Notable mostly for the appearance of Irene Adler probably the best and most intelligent female character Doyle ever created3 The Red Headed League Reading about a massive crowd of redheads was fun but otherwise this is a fairly standard Sherlock Holmes story2 A Case of Identity The rare swing and miss it s lightweight and predictable with a patronizing Victorian view of women that thoroughly irritated me34 The Boscombe Valley Mystery A son is accused of his father s murder understandable since he was found at the scene covered in blood but of course there s to the story than that 35 The Five Orange Pips Five dried up orange seeds in an envelope are a serious threat Apparently so when they re accompanied by the letters KKK and followed by death This one is atmospheric and compelling reading but I m dinging it for Doyle s complete disregard *for actual historical facts about the KKK This story is also notable for view
