Loved all these facts, some of them I knew, some I did not. I shall be following you to learn more interesting facts. That was great! I just love Sherlock Holmes. I also remember reading a little book with mystery tales, where one of them featured Sherlock without mentioning his name directly. That was quite a run to get to the bottom of the comments.
Very active commentators. My husband is an avid disciple of Sherlock Holmes, in all of his manifestations, including owning every Sherlock Holmes DVD series available. With this post you filled some knowledge voids that he did not know he had. Very interesting and informative. Thank you for your interest in Sherlock Holmes and your generosity with the remainder of his fans. Also, thank you very much for following my blog. Although it addresses a completely different subject, I approach it with the same intensity you seem to display for your subjects as well.
This weekend was the first time I saw parts of the television show. I was disappointed in the depiction with Dr. Watson being replaced by a woman sidekick. I wanted to see it as the stories were portrayed. You have an interesting blog and thanks for the follow. Hope to become more involved in the future, perhaps with a guest post.
Thank you for following Zen Crunch. I am now following you. Good article. Great article and great facts! All the episodes are faithful to the stories and both Watsons that they have are good.

The most famous detective in literature, and an absolute delight to read about. The stories themselves are always fun, trying to solve the mysteries, but just exploring how this man's mind works is so much fun. I love the short stories because they're easy to read at any time, and they stand alone easily. This is a great collection because it really does include most of the more popular stories, and it's an easy win if you're looking for a quick reminder of why you love these stories so much.

(ebook) 101 Amazing Sherlock Holmes Facts
I find Holmes brilliant and the writing is truly amazing but all the storylines had the same ending which bored me. I do think if the author started the story which a scandal in Bohemia and ending it with the final problem it would have been amazing. But he did not and the story for me ended with the same story repeating again and again. Like most tv shows today they don't know how to end it correctl A four star rated book, it was a five but the storylines become predictable and tiresome to read.
Like most tv shows today they don't know how to end it correctly and this book is like that. You need a good beginning and great ending and this does not have it. I found the story almost predictable and lost interest in many of the stories. I would recommend it. But stop reading after the final problem Needless to say why Mr. Holmes deserve a 5 star.
Jul 17, Barahir Gray rated it it was amazing. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name. In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. It was not that he felt any emotion akin to love for Irene Adler. All emotions, and that one particularly, were abhorrent to his cold, precise but admirably balanced mind. Aug 18, Szabx rated it it was amazing Shelves: detectivism. Simply great. You can't just put the book down for a bathroom-break. Feb 13, E. Really enjoyed these, although I think the Red-Headed League was my least favorite.
And as a person who has seen most of the modern adaptations of Sherlock, I'm pleased that his book self does not strike me as a jerk. Occasionally impolite or rude, but not a jerk. There's some adaptations that should take note. Glad to say that the number of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fans was increased by one half-insane book lover - that would be me :P.
Not only his stories were so good : full of scenes that made me forget to breathe and anxiously skim to know what was gonna happen next , but also the writing prose of Sir Arthur was rather pleasant to read. Though I read about twenty cases about his investigations , I still cannot say what kind person he is , in deep inside of his soul. All of the records are narrated through the perceptions of Watson who usually accompanies Sherlock in detecting mysteries.
Therefore , readers only see Sherlock in a way how Watson sees and judges him. Sherlock will remain as a complete mystery by himself. Wonderful short stories! It's no wonder Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories appeared in The Strand for 40 years; you can't help but be riveted when Holmes starts to work his magic. And Dr. Watson, the perfect sidekick. Did you know Sherlock Holmes never said 'elementary, my dear ,Watson. Can't wait to read Wonderful short stories! Can't wait to read more Sherlock Holmes stories. Oct 04, Elise rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed the short stories.
They are easy to read. And you keep on reading once you start with a story. Now I understand why Sherlock Holmes is a classic. And why it got so famous! Aug 16, Alyssa rated it it was amazing. This collection of stories is truly fascinating. It feels like a miracle every time Sherlock somehow solves it all while everyone else involved is still in the dark. A good read. Jul 11, Auderoy Lin rated it really liked it. You have shown your relish for it by the enthusiasm which has prompted you to chronicle, and, if you will excuse my saying so, somewhat to embellish so many of my own little adventures.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. I have seen too much not to know that the impression of a woman may be more valuable than the conclusion of an analytical reasoner. Come at once -- if convenient -- if inconvenient come all the same.
It may be that you are not yourself luminous but you are a conductor of light. You see, but you do not observe. The distinction is clear. Women are naturally secretive, and they like to do their own secreting. Here I have heard what he had heard, I had seen what he had seen, and yet from his words it was evident that he saw clearly not only what had happened, but what was about to happen, while to me the whole business was still confused and grotesque. My life is spent in one long effort to escape from the commonplaces of existence.
These little problems help me to do so. Do not think of revenge, or anything of the sort, at present. I think that we may gain that by means of the law; but we have our web to weave, while theirs is already woven. The ideal reasoner would, when he has once been shown a single fact in all it's bearings, deduce from it not only all the chain of events which led up to it but also all the results which would follow from it. Well, I say now, as I said then that a man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber-room of his library, where he can get it if he wants it.
There is nothing more to be said or to be done tonight, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather, and the still more miserable ways of our fellow-men. You have a grand gift of silence, Watson. It makes you quite invaluable as a companion. Sherlock Holmes was a man, however, who when he had an up solved problem upon his mind would go for days, and even for a week, without rest, turning it over, rearranging his facts, looking at it from every point of view, until he had either fathomed it, or convinced himself that his data were insufficient.
I confess that I have been as blind as a mole, but it is better to learn wisdom late, than never to learn it at all. Amid the action and reaction of so dense a swarm of humanity, every possible combination of events may be expected to take place, and many a little problem will be presented which may be striking and bizarre without being criminal.
I should like to see the solution of so tangled a business. My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know. But I have heard, Mr. Holmes, that you can see deeply into the manifold wickedness of the human heart. To the man who loves art for its own sake, it is frequently in its least important and lowliest manifestations that the keenest pleasure is to be derived. No, it is not selfishness or conceit. If I claim full justice for my art, it is because it is an impersonal thing — a thing beyond myself. Crime is common.
Logic is rare.
Therefore it is upon the logic rather than upon the crime that you should dwell. You look at these scattered houses, and you are impressed by their beauty. I look at them, and the only thought which comes to me is a feeling of their isolation, and of the impunity with which crime may be committed there. It is one of those cases where the art of the reasoner should be used rather for the sifting of details than for the acquiring of fresh evidence.
The tragedy has been so uncommon, so complete and of such personal importance to so many people that we are suffering from a plethora of surmise, conjecture and hypothesis.
The difficulty is to detach the framework of fact — of absolute undeniable fact — from the embellishments of theorists and reporters. Then, having established ourselves upon this sound basis, it is our duty to see what inferences may be drawn, and which are the special points upon which the whole mystery turns. See the value of imagination. We imagined what might have happened, acted upon the supposition, and find ourselves justified.
Let us proceed. I follow my own methods, and tell as much or as little as I choose. That is the advantage of being unofficial. I am inclined now to have a little amusement at his expense. An anomaly which often struck me in the character of my friend Sherlock Holmes was that, although in his methods of thought he was the neatest and most methodical of mankind, and although also he affected a certain quiet primness of dress, he was none the less in his personal habits one of the most untidy men that ever drove a fellow-lodger to distraction.
I have usually found that there was method in his madness. This reticence upon his part had increased the somewhat inhuman effect which he produced upon me, until sometimes I found myself regarding him as an isolated phenomenon, a brain without a heart, as deficient in human sympathy as he was pre-eminent in intelligence. Art in the blood is liable to take the strangest forms. It is stupidity rather than courage to refuse to recognise danger when it is close upon you. All day I turned these facts over in my mind, endeavoring to hit upon some theory which could reconcile them all, and to find that line of least resistance which my poor friend had declared to be the starting-point of every investigation.
What one man can invent another can discover. The strong, masterful personality of Holmes dominated the tragic scene, and all were equally puppets in his hands. Well, you call that love, but I should call it selfishness. Only one important thing has happened in the last three days, and that is that nothing has happened.

The law is as dangerous to us as the criminals are. To let the brain work without sufficient material is like racing an engine. It racks itself to pieces. I have heard your reasons and regard them as unconvincing and inadequate. She is not in her senses. She is madly in love. Nov 10, Kesi rated it it was amazing Shelves: classic.
