Holmes and Watson are at their best; very impressive indeed! What clever inferences he deduces from every tiny thing which are considered not-so-useful or not-so-important! Truly, a marvelous creation!
“I can see nothing,” said I (Watson), handing it back to my friend. “On the contrary, Watson, you can see everything. You fail however to reason from what you see. You are too timid in drawing your inferences.”
This is the heart of Sherlock Holmes’ detective skills. He “not only sees, but also observes,” drawing conclusions which are often bizarre in their peculiarity, but frightfully accurate. In this collection of mysteries, all of Holmes’ abilities are tested as he solves twelve exciting mysteries. I believe my personal favorites were The Red-Headed League and The Beryl Coronet, but they were all quite enjoyable pieces of fiction. A very fun and easy read.
Sherlock Holmes is one of the finest creations of mankind...something that's comparable to perhaps Mona Lisa and things of equal stature. I have been an avid fan of Holmes' ever since my childhood. Do read it and you will too surely fall in love with the most witty and stylish persona of the great Sherlock Holmes!!
Nice way to spend your idle time at office
Whenever I'm idle at office, to pep up my thoughts I often turn to Sherlock Holmes since he keeps me active during the dull idle hours at office.
