The Rediscovered Annals of Sherlock Holmes


Loved it! 😍

A great set of adventures of the classic Sherlock Holmes that will have the reader wondering how he does it.

Who doesn't like Sherlock Holmes and his companion, Dr. Watson? This collection of stories doesn't disappoint with mystery, some murder, some theft, and the sins of mankind. To summarize the entire piece can't effectively be done. So I won't try.

I found myself enjoying the cryptic Holmes as people from all walks of life turns toward him to solve their problems. Most of the mysteries were as mysterious to him as they were to everyone else until he began to investigate. It was everyone else who were still in the dark. Holmes' knack for seeing what is there before anyone else is astounding. He sees the small speck on a piece of clothing that everyone else ignores as their minds are always somewhere else. I think I love the fact that Holmes is so observant which challenges me to be as well. That doesn't seem possible to be like him, but it is fun.

The stories reference events from other mystery stories involving Holmes and created an urge to go back to the original stories and read them again. I felt like I was back in Victorian England as I journeyed through the story.

Most of the stories are very short with one taking up nearly a quarter of the pages and is divided in chapters. I like quick ones though there were times I longed for the story to be longer so I could learn more of the characters, but at the same time it all felt like the right length.

Do you like mysteries? Do you enjoy Sherlock Homes stories? Then you need to read this collection and lose yourself in that world once again. You might be surprised how it has you longing for the original stories of Holmes and many others that are still being produced today.
