A Study in Scarlet

A Study in Scarlet -  Arthur Conan Doyle My first Sherlock Holmes book and I loved it! This book was basically two parts. The first part introduces us to Watson and Holmes and takes us through their work figuring out a crime and finding a murderer. The second part is a flash back giving us the story of where the murderer came from and why he committed the murders. Then there is a very short final chapter that sums up how Holmes used the clues to figure it out.

This was a quick, fun read and exactly what I had expected. Usually when I read a classic book about figures I have seen in movies and on television, I am surprised by the differences. This is one of those rare times when this did not happen. Looking forward to the next story.
