I LOVE YOU, SHERLOCK And, just to be clear, I loved him before he was all sexified.
Ok, so Watson is back from the war he basically just got trounced on and then came home , and has wasted all of his money is running low on funds Luckily, he runs into an old pal from school, who just happens to know of The Game is on ENTER THE DETECTIVE It s in this very first novel where the great character Sherlock Holmes, along with Dr John Watson, are introduced to the audience in their first case together.
It wasn t an instantenous success, but gladly it was appreciated soon enough to the point that when the author, Sir Arhur Conan Doyle, wanted to kill the character, not only their loyal fans wrote letters against the decision something unheard at those times for not saying that even people in London were seeing wearing mourning black bands showing respect to the death of the character, that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle finally resurrect the character writing evenadventures.
But everything began hereDr John Watson got injured in war, and when he got back to London, he isn t able to afford a decent apartment on his scarse pension, so he is introduced to a peculiar man A Study in Scarlet Sherlock Holmes, 1 , Arthur Conan Doyle A Study in Scarlet is an 1887 detective novel by British author Arthur Conan Doyle Written in 1886, the story marks the first appearance of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, who would become two of the most famous characters in popular fiction The book s title derives from a speech given by Holmes, a consulting detective, to his friend and chronicler Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story s murder investigation as his study in scarlet There s the scarlet thread of murder running through the colourless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it 19 2001 1380 180 1384 9647100841 1389 1392 9789647100847 1372 192 1887 1888 This nifty novel really a novella the first Sherlock Holmes book written in 1887, is rather strange since it is set both in the culture, of brimming Victorian London, 1881, and the dry , very hot desolate deserts of the savage wastelands of Utah, 1847 , nothing herebefore there was a state established there or giving that name Or even part of the United States, since technically still Mexican territory , neglected by them and ruled by the Ute Indians hence the appropriate appellation The almost forgotten war between the U.

So, what happened was.
I was not aware of the fact that I had to be surprised when the second part of the book starts and wonder what happened to the story with Sherlock Holmes in it and how that mystery was solved Moreover, I had to wonder whether the second part was from some other book, somehow got binded in my copy and curse the publishers I was not surprised and neither did I curse the publishers.
As I was ill prepared for reading, this resulted in me being not disappointed like I was supposed to be.
I was not aware of the fact that I had to loathe the second part because it didn t have Sherlock Holmes but instead Mormons and whatnots I couldn t loat
The birth of a legend This is itthe novel in which Sir Arthur ushered the world s greatest second best detective after Batman into our collective consciousness Being the non conformist rebel that I am, I started off bassackwards by reading The Valley of Fear and then The Adventure of the Final Problem because those were the two stories with Moriarty in them Shocking, I know, but that s just how I roll Btw, it still really chaffs my cheeks that Doyle wrote 56 short stories and 4 novels about Holmes and the arch enemy appears in exactly TWO I know less is sometimesbut, come on Doyle, that is on the scrimpy side of weak Anyway, I have now circled back and returned to the genesis of the Sherlockian mythos and begun with the tale that started it all Now, for those that have never read any of the Holmes mysteries, I have come to believe that your level of enjoyment of the Arthur Conan Doyle s first Sherlock Holmes novel is utterly unimpressive In short, the book starts like this and mid way turns into this And I am not even joking The novel begins with Holmes and Watson meeting, moving into their Baker Street apartment and then investigating a murder of a man found in an abandoned house At the half point, however, the story completely changes its course and becomes the most awkward introduction of the murderer s back story and motives involving Mormons, polygamy, violence, money, and Brigham Young The structure of The Study in Scarlet is utterly bizarre.
But let s not linger on the bad I want to use this review to shamelessly hype the new BBC version of Sherlock Holmes.
This is an absolutely delightful modernized take on the old characters and it offers a much better version of Arthur Conan Doyle s dreadful story So, check it out.
