The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 32: A Study in Scarlet

I must admit, I’ve never read Sherlock Holmes books before now (though I thoroughly enjoy Mr. Cumberbatch’s Sherlock), and I found this first foray into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective stories delightful. A Study in Scarlet is the introduction of Mr. Watson and Mr. Holmes, explaining the circumstances of their meeting and how their partnership began. This is what I think of when I want a mystery – enough hints to keep things interesting but not give away the ending, twists and turns to keep your mind engaged and both humor and frailty in the characters. Good read!
