“The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – A Book Review

In the voice of Dr. Watson, he wrote these memoirs on Sherlock Holmes covering 10 cases of investigative work on crimes. As in all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books I read so far, the cases were baffling and the final culprits were unexpected. The intelligence with the power of observations and deductions of Sherlock Holmes again shone through the cases.

These memoirs also brought to light that Sherlock Holmes had a brother named Mycroft who had the same kind of abilities as Sherlock. The book ended with a case involving Professor Moriarty, another brilliant person rivalling Holmes but on the opposite side of good. This is the first time I read about Moriarty in the cases I have been following Sherlock Holmes.

Because the book is on short cases, it was easy to read one story in one sitting. There are 10 cases and each one is a pleasure to read.file_000-1
