    " I enjoyed the short story versions of Holmes and Watson and the breath of cases and people involved. As Holmes says, "Life is infinitely stranger than anything the mind of man could invent." I can understand why Holmes would be such an iconic figure. Although I must confess that I sometimes flashed to Robert Downey Jr. during reading. This book was entertaining and provided interesting views of weakness and intelligence. I will probably read more Sherlock Holmes. "

    " i enjoy sherlock holmes. I try to read one story between the other novels I read. I do, however, this the BBC's modern adaptation of the characters are far more entertaining. I tend to imbue the original holmes with more of cumberbatch's mannerisms than are actually present in the text. "

    " I've been enjoying the Robert Downey Jr and BBC versions so I decided to read the originals. It's not surprising these are classics. "
