Descrição do produto
Resenha da Amazon.com.br
Watson and Holmes move to a now-famous address, 221B Baker Street, where Watson is introduced to Holmes's eccentricities as well as his uncanny ability to deduce information about his fellow beings. Somewhat shaken by Holmes's egotism, Watson is nonetheless dazzled by his seemingly magical ability to provide detailed information about a man glimpsed once under the streetlamp across the road.
Then murder. Facing a deserted house, a twisted corpse with no wounds, a mysterious phrase drawn in blood on the wall, and the buffoons of Scotland Yard--Lestrade and Gregson--Holmes measures, observes, picks up a pinch of this and a pinch of that, and generally baffles his faithful Watson. Later, Holmes explains: "In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason backward.... There are few people who, if you told them a result, would be able to evolve from their own inner consciousness what the steps were which led up to that result." Holmes is in that elite group.
Conan Doyle quickly learned that it was Holmes's deductions that were of most interest to his readers. The lengthy flashback, while a convention of popular fiction, simply distracted from readers' real focus. It is when Holmes and Watson gather before the coal fire and Holmes sums up the deductions that led him to the successful apprehension of the criminal that we are most captivated. Subsequent Holmes stories--The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes--rightly plunge the twosome directly into the middle of a baffling crime, piling mystery upon mystery until Holmes's denouement once more leaves the dazzled Watson murmuring, "You are wonderful, Holmes!" Generations of readers agree. --Barbara Schlieper --Este texto se refere à uma edição alternativa kindle_edition
The Return of Sherlock Holmes Volume 3
In the tale of The Three Students, which Watson himself refers to as a "small but instructive adventure," Holmes's task is to determine which of three possible suspects has cheated in order to win the coveted Fortescue Scholarship. In The Golden Pince-Nez, a professor's secretary is found murdered, and the key piece of evidence -- a pair of eyeglasses -- is discovered clutched in the victim's hand. The Missing Three-Quarter takes Holmes and Watson to Cambridge, where the university's star rugby player had disappeared just prior to a crucial match. And The Abbey Grange is full of emotional intrigue when Watson finds himself captivated by a beautiful woman whose husband is found dead. --Este texto se refere à uma edição alternativa kindle_edition

If you love Holmes, you'll love this. You do get a feel that Sir Arthur's phoning it in by now, but the stories don't suffer too badly from that. As you near the end, you do get that feeling of sadness that comes from knowing there's no more of the original stories left to read (assuming, of course, that you've read 'em in the right order!) but, as we know, all good things must come to an end.
The book itself is lovely, really attractive design on the cover :-).
