‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ – A.C. Doyle

I’ve always been intrigued by the numerous references to this infamous character but my interest piqued after watching the feature movie ‘Sherlock Holmes’ (2009) directed by Guy Ritchie, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Though there has been a length of time since watching that movie, I have nevertheless begun reading my first novel about Sherlock Holmes, and it is indeed not a let down.

Just a brief bio:
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, born in 1859, was a Scottish physician and writer. Sherlock Holmes first featured in ‘A Study in Scarlet’ around 1887 which appeared in ‘Beeton’s Chrsitmas Annual’ (an English magazine). He has since written a total of 56 short stories and 4 novels.

    I agree with you, the novel is such an invaluable piece of work. However, I’m really fed up with the film “Sherlock Holmes” (2009). They shouldn’t have chose R.Downey. Sherlock Holmes is such a complicated person and it’s not Downey who can’t express all of his characteristics. The only actor I’ve ever watched and considered to be suitable in the role of Sherlock Holmes is Christopher Plummer (when he was still young enough, of course).

    It’s just my own opinion (:

      ahh shucks~ now that is a man with an extensive history in acting. I’ve seen a fair few of his films already, but unfortunately not his works as Sherlock Holmes. might try watching them sometime soon.
