A Study In Scarlet

Book Fifteen.

I had not read any Sherlock Holmes before, but was very much looking forward to reading this. I wasn’t disappointed. I was laughing and smiling constantly through the first several chapters.

Basically, Holmes is a delight. He is the perfect amount of egotistical, in exactly the same way Hercule Poirot is, and i can not emphasise enough how much that endears them both to me. Holmes isn’t a braggart; he’s honest. He is smarter than you. And him, and her, and them. He isn’t afraid to compliment people, either, when it’s deserved.

I loved this book, and it took an extraordinary amount of willpower to not pick up ‘The Sign of Four’ and begin reading it immediately afterwards! Why egotistical detectives hold such a wonderful place in my heart i really don’t know.

He is, but it wasn't mentioned in this one. Holmes and Watson barely know each other yet.
