Review: A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle.

Review: A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle.


"A Study in Scarlet" is the first published story of one of the most famous literary detectives of all time, Sherlock Holmes. Here Dr. Watson, who has just returned from a war in Afghanistan, meets Sherlock Holmes for the first time when they become flat-mates at the famous 221 B Baker Street. In "A Study in Scarlet" Sherlock Holmes investigates a murder at Lauriston Gardens as Dr. Watson tags along with Holmes while narratively detailing his amazing deductive abilities. 

Hi guys! I'm back!

Right. I started reading this because I've recently gained a new obsession. BBC Sherlock. It's funny, witty, extraordinarily clever and with only 6 episodes through 2 series, it's really something you can get emotionally invested. Also, it's modern. A MODERN DAY SHERLOCK HOLMES!

Also Benedict Cumberbatch dewidxbeidbehxswiudxisxdbe

*ahem* ANYWAY

So I started reading this and I really enjoyed it! The writing, I had been told, was quite archaic and therefore difficult for some people to understand. But I understood it quite well! The BBC Sherlock has aired an episode called A Study in Pink which was their take on this. It was interesting to see what original plot features had been put in!

Sherlock's powers of deduction were thrilling and very interesting. I also enjoyed his relationship with Gregson and Lestrade at Scotland Yard. I thought it was very funny!

A short read. I recommend for fans of the Sherlock films and BBC Sherlock! And for people who I looking for a short interesting read in between novels :) 


Sorry for the short review guys, but I have so many exams this is all I can do at the mo. I really hope you understand and thank you if you're still reading this!
