Reader The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

The Adventures of Sherlock HolmesIn the very first story 'A Scandal in Bohemia' The editor of this volume Richard Lancelyn Green is editor of The Uncollected Sherlock Holmes and The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes With John Michael Gibson he compiled the Soho Series Bibliography of A Conan Doyl 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 hbomberguy pointed out that Irene Adler is in this story a protofeminist figure and I’m inclined to agree Having a woman outsmart Sherlock in one of the first stories upon which he learns and grows was both unexpected and deeply satisfying It’s fun in general that Holmes occasionally fails There is very little I can say about Sherlock Holmes that has not been said before I do think however that the dynamic of John and Watson is particularly brilliant As is pointed out in the introduction to the Complete Sherlock Holmes which I just started as of the writing of this review the idea of having an everyman to Sherlock Holmes’ incredible detective is honestly inspired My favorite stories included A Scandal in Bohemia → featuring Irene Adler The Speckled Band → I guessed the ending of this but it did not impact how much I loved it The Adventure of the Copper Beeches → arguably the eeriest one and featuring some interesting commentary on genderBlog | Twitter | Instagram | Spotify | Youtube | About |

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 spoilerbeing one of the few total fails by Sherlock Holmes hide spoiler
