It was good. quite good actually, even though i am not usually interested in thriller or detective stories. But i had to read Sherlock Holmes.
A few stories are somewhat lackadaisical. A few have too abrupt an ending. esp the famous ones, like A Scandal in Bohemia.
And I don't understand what is the hullabaloo about The Red-Headed League? It seemed to me quite an ordinary story
And just as a passing remark,Sherlock says somewhere "It is always a joy to meet an American, Mr. Moulton, for I am one of those who believe that the folly of a monarch and the blundering of a minister in far-gone years will not prevent our children from being some day citizens of the same world-wide country under a flag which shall be a quartering of the Union Jack with the Stars and Stripes.”
Mr. Sherlock(might or might not be Mr. Doyle's) seems to be a strong imperialist o_O.
