The Complete Sherlock Holmes: Volume 1

Standard

In order to enjoy Sherlock Holmes to its full capacity, I feel that one has to read it as if it were a novel versus a series of short stories. The reason being that there is an underlying story about the character, Holmes himself that is really the foundation of the whole book and the factor that makes the reader want to turn the page.  Although it was nearly 750 pages, it flies by as if it were half of that amount. I definitely feel as though one should read the books before watching the movie because the movie only gives a general impression of who Sherlock Holmes really is, instead of depicting the complexity of the character that Arthur Conan Doyle created. Overall, this book was a pleasure to read and I recommend it to anyone above the age of 15.

Score (1-10)- 9.5

P.S.  Sherlock Holmes is my literary boyfriend.
