Arthur Conan Doyle: The sign of the four

The Sign of Four (Sherlock Holmes, #2)The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Possible SPOILER alert…

…but why does Mary already appear? Why do you take my slashy goodness away from me already? And how on earth is John such a whore that he declares love after two hours of laying eyes on her? *sigh*

The case was okay. I found the story within the story within the story thingy a bit on the duller side.

But yay for drug abusive Sherlock. I like him dark and messed-up. I just wish John had cared more about that.

Arthur Conan Doyle: A Study in Scarlet

A Study in Scarlet (Sherlock Holmes, #1)A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I finally got around to reading Sherlock, not just watching it and it is an absolute mystery to me, how he used to be played as an elderly gentlemen with a pipe and fiddle. Now I even more appreciate Guy Richie’s and the BBC’s Sherlock, because the one in the novels seems that much younger and agile and slightly manic-depressive etc etc.

As for the story, it was okay. I skipped the part that focused on the backstory in America, and I didn’t miss it in the end. It took me out of the mood and I was a bit confused.

I also don’t ship them (yet) but I shall read on and see what happens.
