I’m not usually a huge mystery person (at least, not in the sense that I read specifically for mysteries), but I also knew that since the Sherlock Holmes stories are classics, I had to at least give them a try. And, given my love for Victorian literature, I was pretty much sold. (Also, it totally helps that they were free for my Kindle on Amazon.)
I ended up loving all of the stories. Holmes is a very interesting character, not to mention all the quirks of the other characters who showed up, and many of the cases were just so bizarre, I had to keep reading to figure out how they were even possible. (Clearly, I am far more like Watson than I am like Holmes.)
So, basically, I’m going to have to go and read some more Sherlock Holmes, because I’m hooked.
