51vLkbBNyoL._SX105_Here’s another review of some classics back in 2011 I read The Complete Collection: Of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I have always been a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes but only of the original stories the only exception I would make would be 1974’s Seven Percent Solution by Nicholas Meyer. The rest tend to diminish the true personality of the character. I think I would have very much liked to have had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Doyle I think I could have learned a lot. I ‘m really not going to try and review these stories they have passed the test of time. I will say that he has influenced every detective story since the first book, sort of how Ian Flemings, 007 has influenced action adventure and spy stories over the years. This collection doesn’t seem to be available on Amazon anymore but there are others there. I can only say if you’re a mystery fan and have only known Holmes from the movies that you take the time and read one of the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and while you’re at it check other books by him. This is your favorite cat reviewer Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin.
