Book Review: A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

102868After watching and loving the BBC series Sherlock I was intrigued to see how the modern-day adaptation of Conan Doyle’s detective measured up the the original, so I downloaded the ebook. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this original version and found new respect for Steven Moffat and the team who have brought the story into the 21st Century. The storytelling was first class – kept me gripped until the end – even with the unusual interlude in Utah in the middle. Almost two novels in one. And I had no problem envisaging the new TV versions of Holmes and Watson as the characters in this book. Great stuff!

4/5 – I really liked it
