The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
I've been reading a lot of mysteries lately, and thought that I should include the most famous detective into my reading list. I love the whole idea of Sherlock Holmes, he just seems like a good guy who is sharp and witty and wants to help people. I love his name. There's 12 short stories in this book, and really, only about half of them were interesting. With 30pages a story, you can't get greatly in depth with the mystery, so it kind of isn't in as detail as a whole novel would be, but then again, Sherlock usually figures out who 'done it' as soon as the person in need tells their story. Is he really that cleaver? I'd like to think so. It's not a bad read, but just don't expect all the mysteries to be super exciting.
