How can I critique Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes? I can’t. He is brilliant and timeless.
I had a lot of fun making my way through these stories. In fact, I read a lot of them while I was running on the treadmill (not as hard as it sounds, haha). Many of the stories only took about 30 minutes or so to get through, which was perfect for my workouts. It was especially fun to watch the BBC series as I was making my way through and notice all the ways they used the original stories to create their modern adaptations.
