Reading progress update: I've listened 305 out of 4260 minutes.
Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection - Arthur Conan Doyle,Stephen Fry

Done with A Study in Scarlet. I really liked the first chapter of the second part, but like in my previous read, as the story unfolded, I started to get antsy to be done with it.

 

I'm listening to The Sign of the Four's Intro now. I did not know Doyle respected Wilde so far as to keep praising his work after the trials. There is also this amazing meta aspect, where Fry is concerned too that is making me smile.

Reading progress update: I've listened 39 out of 4260 minutes.
Sherlock Holmes: The Definitive Collection - Arthur Conan Doyle,Stephen Fry

The landlady had become so accustomed to my late habits that my place had not been laid nor my coffee prepared. With the unreasonable petulance of mankind I rang the bell and gave a curt intimation that I was ready.

 

This is amazing. Not only does Watson poke at himself in this very honest, and very aware, way, but there is so much that went right over my teen self. Like the fact that he was spending without care, being very lazy, slept a lot, and "suffered from nerves". He was PTSD'd to all hell. And without right out saying it, future him knows that he wasn't OK, and maybe also that the way Holmes induced his curiosity might have given him the jolt to snap out of the spiral-down.

Between pitch and content, I'm already in love, and I'm just at the intro

Reading progress update: I've read 200 out of 288 pages.
Sherlock Holmes: The Red Tower - Mark Latham

Holmes taking control of the chaos at Crain Manor. Holmes wreaking havoc on any and all attempts to commit the "perfect" crime in a "haunted house", whether the perpetrator or perpetrators dabble in spiritualism, or fraud, a bit of both, or none of that (killing has nothing to do with any of that, maybe??). an exciting and somewhat shiver-inducing locked room Mystery.
