In this second Sherlock Holmes novel, Dr. Watson falls adorably in love and we discover that Holmes has to keep his busy brain stimulated with cocaine when he doesn’t have a mystery to work on. As Watson regards this habit with the same level of disapproval that in 2019 we might regard a tobacco or ...

I don't see me re-reading this in the future. It's not a bad book, just not compelling. Reading about Holmes going in deep with his cocaine addiction is not interesting. And Watson hoping the case they are looking into keeps Holmes engaged is not that interesting either. If anything, I would say thi...

I hadn't made up my mind about the Locked Room Mystery square until the last minute. For some of the other squares my choices were fairly long and I was looking forward to them, so I was glad to spot The Sign of the Four on the suggested list. The novel is included in The Works of A. Conan Doyle...

“No, no: I never guess. It is a shocking habit,—destructive to the logical faculty. I chose this one for my read by flashlight/candlelight square for two reason: first, it is short, and second, there is something fitting about reading Sherlock Holmes by candlelight. This was a reread. I've alway...

I bought this audiobook when it was a Daily Deal on Audible.I reviewed an e-book version of this way back in April, so I don't plan to write another synopsis or very much about the story itself. My feelings about the story didn't really change, although I was maybe more keenly aware of the giant pil...

I've only ever read a handful of the original Sherlock Holmes stories and novels, and I keep meaning to fix that. Although it's been a while since I last read A Study in Scarlet, I remembered enough to know that I wasn't a huge fan of it, so I decided to skip to the next one, The Sign of the Four. I...
