    It was really interesting to be inside the mind of Sherlock Holmes and watch as Watson and him got closer. I loved following along with the case and learning about the art of deduction.
  • An amazing read

    It was really exciting to follow along with the investigation, and to be in the mind of Sherlock Holmes. Watching a show or movie just isnt the same as the books. Although some words i didnt understand, i would definitly read this book again.

    I am positive I had previously read all of the Holmes stories; however, I was glad to reconnect with the duo at their beginning. The chance circumstances that threw them together, I had forgotten. I had also forgotten the Mormon component of the story. When Doyle wrote this it was not too long removed a time from the Mormon trek, and stories of the development of the settlement in Utah must have been of interest. Indeed, even at this further removed time (2014), similar stories, like that of Warren Jeffs, for example, are of interest and are circulated. I don't feel that Doyle had quite hit his stride with Holmes yet. This story seems to have more backstory than do many later ones. After all, Holmes is the one we want to read about. A "Gripping Yarn" none the less. Joseph Herbert

    Excellent first half of the book, and easy enough to read (: Second half was about Mormons so I skipped that. Those two stories should be separated though since I wasted 15 minutes reading and being confused by part two.
