Sherlock Holmes - [Book review]


Hi Friends
Most of us who studied Andhra pradesh state syllabus for 8th standard might have read the non-detail 'The Hound of Baskervelli's'. How u felt?

Actually after reading that book, i became a fan of 'Sir Arthur Connan Doyle'. I started collecting all his novels and short stories from then, but couldnt get enough time to read them. But after EAMCET, we got nearly 3 months time between results anouncement and counselling.Then i read 4 novels and nearly 50 short stories. All were very interesting and also thought provoking.

Unlike other detective stories, Sherlock holmes' stories are special in one way. In these stories, Sherlock holmes character will explain his deductions so well that we think that solving a problem is not that much difficult if we approach it in a right way. These stories also mainly concentrate on human psychology and basic observetion skills.
Some of the best short stories are:
  • The adventure of Devil's Foot
  • The Adventure of Dying detective
In Novels, my best picks are : A study in Scarlet and The hound of Baskervelii's
