A Study in Scarlet, 1-8% (06/08/20) - 2.5 stars.
This probably would have got 3 or 4 stars if not for the whole Mormon section. Like why did I need 5 chapters on Mormon history, etc. in this murder mystery book. Yes, I understand the reasons why but it was boring and honestly unnecessary, and just wHY?! Part 1 of the story was fine and fun and interesting, and part 2 picked up after the ‘escape’ from the mormons but still.
Plus, while I know the main characters from the BBC adaptation and I’m sure I imposed my existing feelings onto them as a result, they were all very one-dimensional characters and I am a very character-driven reader, so that was kind of disappointing.
The Sign of Four, 8-15% (07/08/20) - 1 or 2 stars.
Wow, the racism jumped out in this one. Damn. The first half wasn’t so bad but towards the end in particular it was very uncomfortable to read to be honest. And Sherlock saying women are never to be completely trusted was disappointing. I know these books were written in the late nineteenth century by a British white man but goddamnit I had higher hopes.
Another thing I’ve noticed is the way the murderer’s backstory is revealed has been so long in both stories so far and I don’t find that particularly enjoyable or interesting. I definitely prefer the Sherlock and Watson part of the books to whatever long-winded stories the murderers have.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, 15-32% (07/08/20-08/08/20) - 3 stars.
Ok this was the best so far. I kind of found the second half of the first two books a bit boring with the murderer’s entire backstory being told when i really didn’t care that much. That wasn’t such a problem with these short stories so I appreciated that. The characters are still very one-dimensional but it’s also less noticeable in this format as there is so many other things going on.
One thing I have noticed though is that the reveal of the mystery isn’t always something the reader really has a part in, we just get the mystery and then we’re told by Sherlock what it all means.
The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, 32-47% (09/08/20) - 4 stars.
This is my new favourite. I’m not sure what it was exactly that I preferred to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes but I liked most of the stories in this one more. It started strong with Silver Blaze and ended stronger with the introduction (and apparent send off) of Moriarty. There were a couple in the middle that I didn’t enjoy quite as much, I think partly because they were stories recounted to John by Sherlock so it didn’t feel as involved (I’m not sure what word I’m looking for there).
Either way this has easily taken the place of my favourite instalment as of yet, which was unexpected before I started reading as I had only ever heard of A Study in Scarlet and the Hound of The Baskervilles.
The Hound of the Baskervilles, 47-57% (09/08/20) - 4 or 5 stars.
I’m not sure where to start. I really really enjoyed this book. Which was not something I was anticipating after I was so disappointed by both A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four. I don’t know if this may be something to do with the fact it’s the fifth Sherlock book I’ve read in a row so I have just become more used to the language and Arthur Conan Doyle’s storytelling but yeah.
This book was intriguing, exciting and just a little bit spooky and I felt fully immersed into the setting of the moors and the lives of the characters, which isn’t something I have particularly felt yet in the rest of the series.
The Return of Sherlock Holmes, 57-76% (10/08/20-11/08/20) - 4 stars.
Another fun collection of short stories in the Sherlock Holmes universe. I can officially say I have become well and truly enthralled in these books and I can’t believe I’ve read 6 of them now. I am really happy I persevered through the first couple because I had started regretting setting the challenge of reading these books until I got to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and since then I have been actively enjoying reading them. It has been really interesting reading these stories and being able to recognise the episodes of the BBC adaptation some of them inspired and I am very excited to rewatch that when I have finished the last 3 books. I am also starting to become better at picking up on the clues and have been feeling a bit proud of myself in correctly guessing some of the mysteries.
One thing I will say though; what the hell happened to Mary? When Sherlock reveals himself to Watson 3 years after his supposed death, Watson quickly moves back in to 221B Baker Street with no reference to Mary. It was just a bit confusing that she’s not been mentioned once in any sort of explanation. Am I just to assume she died??
The Valley of Fear, 76-86% (11/08/20) - 2 stars.
The first half of this book was fine. We were following Sherlock and Watson on another mystery in the English countryside, as you might expect and it was a solid 3 stars, it may have risen to a 4 depending on how it all wrapped up. However, I was disappointed to discover that this book did the thing that both A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four did which I did not enjoy and that The Hound of the Baskervilles did not do - which may have been part of why I liked that one so much. The entire second half of this book was set in America 20 years in the past following characters I could not have cared less for, telling us the backstory of the ‘current day’ mystery. I was pretty bored throughout as a result and so my star rating was lowered.
His Last Bow, 86-97% (11/08/20) - 3 stars.
His Last Bow had ups and downs for me. For example, the first story - The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge - was one I did not like, the language was uncomfortable as were some of the attitudes. This was followed by The Adventure of The Red Circle which I did quite enjoy and then by The Adventure of The Cardboard Box which literally started with a copy and pasted section from an earlier short story. I am not kidding. It was exactly the same few pages as a story from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes and it confused me greatly until I looked it up and then continued reading to find out it lead into a different mystery.
Also in this instalment I correctly guessed a number of the mysteries - or at least elements of them which again I’m not sure if its cause I’m just smart like that or the stories were becoming kind of predictable. However, I do have to mention The Adventure of The Devil’s Foot which was essentially just Batman Begins but in the early twentieth century and my familiarity with that film may account for my guessing the mystery. I will say though that made it a very fun story to read.
The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, (12/08/20) - 2 or 3 stars.
I think this may have been my least favourite short story collection. It may be partly my fault in choosing to read all 9 of the books in the series over a single week, but I really couldn’t tell if the stories were getting very repetitive or I was just getting very good at predicting their outcomes. Part of my issue with this book was that a few of the stories were from Sherlock’s perspective alone and did not feature Watson at all - and a lot of what I have really enjoyed about this series is the friendship between the two characters so I just wasn’t as interested when Watson wasn’t there. Sherlock also irritated me a bit in this one with some of his comments in this area saying that Watson moving out of Baker Street - and having his own life - was selfish of him and that rubbed me the wrong way.
Plus there was another story or two in this collection with particularly uncomfortable language so that did not help.
OVERALL - 3 stars.
I am very happy that reading these books was something I set out to do as for the most part I did have quite a fun time. My favourite book was easily The Hound of the Baskervilles and it is one which I will soon be buying physically for my shelves with the intention to re-read in the future.
leave a trail of clues. Far too many coincidental contact with 'witnesses'. The narrative is so bad that CD ends up writing reams of boring explanations as to how he came to solve his case. Another author whose success is thanks to decades of film makers who re-wrote his novels.
