The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
I like how Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, through the view point of Dr. Watson, has given the readers a chance not only to read his and Holmes adventures but also to think deeper and see things in another perspective. This book has enabled me, as a reader, to stretch my mental faculties in trying to solve the cases, yet, like Dr. Watson and Lestrade, I often feel like a turtle compared to the lightning speed of Holmes' deductions.
In the story, a case of identity, he let Watson know his method. According to him it is concentrating upon the details, among other means of course. That helped me, as a reader, to catch up with his deductions in the succeeding stories.
I can't help but admire the genius of Doyle, how he put up the adventures, not only for Holmes and Watson but also for the readers to participate as well.
I just can't wait to participate in their next adventure, so ciao! :D
