I have read all nine volumes of the famous consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes was the last volume by its author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
The Case-book of 12 adventures was a fitting finale to the end of Holmes’ career of solving mysteries. It was with much pleasure to see the light and the unravelling of complex and seemingly unsolvable mysteries by the brilliant mind of Sherlock Holmes and by extension the rich and imaginative mind of his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I started to read Sherlock Holmes only after watching the BBC productions of Sherlock Holmes for the TV. It was September 2016 when I started this journey of reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. The very first one was The Hound of Baskerville. Half a year later, I have completed all of it.
Though the stories were set in late 19th century and early 20th century before the Great Depression, the crimes and mysteries were enthralling. Never mind that there were no modern contraptions such as biometric data and CCTV back then, the solving of mysteries by a human mind is the purest form of cracking a case. That was Sherlock Holmes for you.
