Until fairly recently, I’d never taken any interest in Sherlock Holmes. With hindsight, that seems kind of strange seeing as reading is my favourite thing to do and SH is one of the most famous characters ever written.
I enjoyed the recent movies, esp. the second one – what a great team Robert Downey Jnr. and Jude Law make… but most of all, I love, love, love the TV series. The plot, the actors, the music, the twists and eccentricities of Sherlock. It’s brilliant and if you haven’t seen it, you’ve missed out.
So; I decided to read Sherlock Holmes and downloaded the complete collection on my Kindle for a mere 77p. I’m only half way through, but I have not been disappointed. Brilliantly written, modern for its time, intriguing, fascinating and, quite honestly, a stroke of genius. I hope that many others will read the stories since the movies and TV show have bought them to everyone’s notice again.
