    A few of the things I learned Once you have eliminated the impossible whatever remains however improbable must be the truthNever theorize before you have all the evidence It biases the judgmentAlso I now sometimes try to analyze people based on their shoes and pants when sitting on the subway I have yet to ask anyone if I was accurate about my predictions

    Time does not change great literature This was completely entertaining and no matter how old you are it's still great to read over the ones you enjoyed the first time Several I had not remembered reading I bought this book at special price from here

    My copy of this book is a wreck I have read it so often My dad gave it to me I can't remember if it was a birthday or Christmas gift but regardless it's one of the best books I've ever been given You just have to read a couple of pages and you fall right into Holmes and Watson's world; it's wonderful

    It's great that we got Hound of the Baskervilles right before Return of Sherlock Holmes because after that the knighted author would prove to be on autopilotI'm afraid that the test of time has not been overly kind to the canon Sherlock lore It was a chore sometimes to read through these short stories that have outstayed their welcomeMaybe the detective ought to have stayed dead But vox populi vox Dei Now that the work of Doyle is in Public Domain many new stories keep popping up Incredibly I've read only one such book That must be remedied ASAP

    Holmes who loathed every form of society with his whole Bohemian soul remained in our lodgings in Baker Street buried among his old books and alternating from week to week between cocaine and ambition the drowsiness of the drug and the fierce energy of his own keen nature Holmes was still as ever deeply attracted by the study of crime and occupied his immense faculties and extraordinary powers of observation in following out those clues and clearing up those mysteries which had been abandoned as hopeless by the official police “A Scandal in Bohemia”Watson's not wasting any time here So we learn in two sentences that Holmes is not fond of other people ridiculously smart kind of a drug addict working unofficially to fight crime and as if I couldn’t say it enough ridiculously smartArthur Conan Doyle emphasizes Holmes' magnificent brain in many ways he uses Watson's admiration to reinforce the reader's own; he gives Holmes lots of foils including incompetent cops and the criminals he's hunting; and perhaps the best trick of all Holmes freuently gets to show off his smarts by wowing his clients with how much he can guess about them just by looking at their outward appearancesSo it’s obvious that Sherlock Holmes is beyond intelligent but I find this other side of him interesting That any civilized human being in this nineteenth century should not be aware that the earth travelled round the sun appeared to be to me such an extraordinary fact that I could hardly realize it“You appear to be astonished” he said smiling at my expression of surprise “Now that I do know it I shall do my best to forget it” “A Study in Scarlet”Holmes is in a nutshell single minded in his detection In that respect it makes sense that all emotions particularly love are abhorrent to his cold precise but admirably balanced mind He's basically an instrument for finding out criminal stuff I actually appreciated this since Doyle didn't risk all the soap opera ish entanglements that make long running serials hard to follow without a map He conceived each of his stories as both united by Holmes' character and yet still potentially interesting to people who had never read any other of his storiesAs a private detective Holmes totally uses his powers for good Everyone in Victorian London from the lowliest governess to the highest nobleman eventually comes to see him when they need help It's reassuring to read about a guy who just goes around making sure that life is fair for the little guy Sure he may be in his business of private detective work mostly for the intellectual work rather than the moral judgment but for me reading each of his stories is like reading “Chicken Soup for the Nerdy Soul” He's so sure and so good at getting things right that reading his stories leaves you with a comfortable glowJohn Watson the narrator is definitely a main character in these stories He is telling his own story sure but only in so far as that story relates to Mr Sherlock Holmes The thing is though he is awesome in his own right He was an army doctor in Afghanistan he's the one who always carries the gun in his and Holmes's most dangerous encountersand what's he is actually able to sustain a job and engage in healthy human relationships with than one person By also making Watson a strong character with both medical and literary proficiency Doyle makes Watson's admiration of Holmes' intelligence even meaningful He fills in gaps that Holmes lack he provides medical assistance that Holmes can't handle and he's the one who adds human interest to Holmes' stories Above all he makes cold calculating Holmeshuman Sure he keeps mentioning that Holmes despises feelings and what not but at the same time the clear bromance that ties the two guys together their mutual friendship and respect really speaks well of both of them as sympathetic cool human beings Watson also manages to bring out the passionate side of Holmes' supremely intellectual workWatson provides a frame for each story an introductory series of paragraphs sketching some dialogue with Holmes or setting the scene of the investigation His narration doesn't wander off into passages of thick description very often which makes their impact all the powerful when he does The focus of each story is on solving a central problem and that means there's suspense and there's resolution So it's probably not a shock to many of you that detective stories usually end with you know the solution to a mystery That's part of the pleasure of reading them in the first place Something that's kind of interesting about Doyle's endings though is that the solution is not always accompanied by legal punishment Like a satisfying conclusion to a “Bones” episode would be an arrest right? Or “Law and Order” and its spinoffs are all about convicting the criminals they track down Holmes though is a private detective above all and because he is not part of an official police force he gets some choice in how things are handled once he's solved a case He's interested in fairness than in observing bureaucratic technicalities As our parents have told us time and time again “life isn't fair” But by the end of a good Holmes story you feel like it can be The good are rewarded the bad punished and each man gets what he deservesIf these are somehow not enough to convince you that Sherlock Holmes is worth caring about let me add that the bromance is top notch in these stories “Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it ” The Hound of the BaskervillesSherlock and John restored my faith in platonic love I hope I will be as excited to spend time with my friends fifteen years down the line as these two seem to be during their later adventures The guys may not be romantic partners in the least but they are life partners and I must admit reading about their adventures left me a little choked up

    I have no idea how I let myself get so long in the tooth before finally settling down and reading this collection  Suffice to say I am glad I finally came to my sensesIt is all here every Sherlock Holmes story ever penned by Arthur Conan Doyle  There are four complete novels and five books of case studies  Relax I am not going to even attempt to review every one of these  That would be tedious for me as well as youThere is no doubt that my hands down favourite of the entire collection was The Hound of the Baskervilles but make no mistake I loved it allAccording to Goodreads I started reading this collection on June 23 of this year and I am just now able to close off my review  With the exception of the novels which I read straight through once I had started them the balance of the case files I read in between other books  I must say I truly enjoyed this approach and looked forward to dropping in to see what Sherlock was up to every now and again  Sadly all good things must come to an end  It was however an experience I shall never forget and I shall certainly miss Watson and Holmes  I may have to go back and pay them a visit again sometime

    For the Celebrity Death Match Review Tournament Le Petit Prince 14 versus The Complete Sherlock Holmes 19It was some time during the summer of 19 that I received an urgent telegram from Holmes Arriving at 221B Baker Street I was struck by how little he had changed He was older to be sure; but his eye was as keen as ever and his enthusiasm not one whit abated by the passage of the yearsI trust you have brought your passport Watson? he said in lieu of greeting We depart for Algeria this evening The cab will be here momentarilyBut Holmes I protested as he hurried me down the stairs What We can discuss that once we are on the train replied Holmes firmly And true to his word he said no until we were comfortably ensconced in the First Class carriage of the Dover ExpressNow Watson said Holmes after he had carefully packed and lit his pipe I wonder if you have heard of a young Frenchman called Saint E An author and aviatorThe rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons

    So I'm now done with reading this whole 2 volume 1796 page Sherlock Holmes canon I spent 10 months reading all the 4 novels and 56 short stories contained herein I really liked the experience and I am proud of this accomplishment My first time to read a canon Before reading this I thought that the word canon only applied to biblical works Well that was the first thing I learned upon adding this book in my currently reading folderSir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in a classy classic manner and even if his settings were not familiar to me as a Filipino I appreciated his stories because of the universal messages in them love of a husband to a wife a son to a father a father to his child etc; the evil in greed especially when it comes to riches and money; that men can be truly friends without homosexuality getting in between; that we have to respect the people we work with; always be wary of the people around you; and that if used in moderation cocaine and morphine can actually make you sharper I cringed while typing the last oneSo what are my takeaways from Sherlock Holmes? There are three1 Logical reasoning He is a keen observer In almost every company I joined with there is a safety program and one of the things they teach in the training is to stop and closely look up down left right front back for every thing that we see that can cause an accident I think that if all of us in the company will have that power of keen observation all factories will have zero unsafe incidents Not only that because Holmes has that keen observation he uses those things that he sees to link them to his hypotheses and when he applies his knowledge in forensics having a background on medicine to the things he observes it results to his power of deduction2 Ability to disguise I am still to see any Sherlock Holmes television episodes or movies but this one makes the story unbelievable for a middle age man like me but interesting enough to engage me while reading Sherlock Holmes can be anybody a pheasant a woman an old man a soldier a dead person etc Not only that some of his characters put disguises too This fantasy element in the story is entertaining in my mind but it is the least in terms of the practical application of what I learned from Sherlock Holmes For one I could not freaking imagine myself dressed like a woman3 Forensic skills From the first few pages of the A Study in Scarlet when the very young Sherlock Holmes told Dr Watson how to detect blood from the scene I was mesmerized Oh I thought I knew it from my medical technology readings way back 3 decades ago However I am not practicing that profession so at times I already forget what I learned before Sir Conan Doyle really puts his passion into each novel and short story because he incorporated what he learned from medical books but even history travel and other sciences such as anthropology handwriting analysis weaponry zoology and botany I still remember the giant jellyfish He must have been a very well read gentlemenMy favorite novel of course is The Hound of the Baskervilles followed by The Sign of Four My top 10 favorite stories are below Interestingly while typing this I checked a website and all except #1 of my choices are not among the Top 12 Sherlockians' choices haha1The Final Problem Memoirs 5 stars2 His Last Bow Last Bow 5 stars3 The Adventure of the Retired Colourman Case Book 5 stars4 The Five Orange Pips Adventures 4 stars5 The Copper Beeches Adventures 4 stars6 The Naval Treaty Memoirs 4 stars7 The Adventure of the Empty House Return 4 stars8 The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton Return 4 stars9 The Adventure of the Three Students Return 4 stars10 The Adventure of the Devil's Foot Last Bow 4 starsMaybe I am just strange but I always enjoy stories that either speak to me or at least surprise me Anyway I will definitely miss Sherlock Holmes But I have to move on to Samuel Beckett
