Sherlock Lives - as fresh and vital today as ever
on 6 May 2016
I read these short stories in between reading other books which I think works best for enjoying the tales - seeing as the structure of each story is essentially the same: Holmes meets somebody who relates their tale of misfortune; Holmes then travels to an appropriate place to investigate further; Holmes solves the puzzle. It's the content of each story that makes this book such a great read; each is a fascinating tale chock full of intereresting characters and intrigue not to mention the inimitable Holmes and his sidekick and narrator Watson. They read as fresh and exciting today as they must have been when they were published well over a hundred years ago.
