    A few of the things I learned Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truthNever theorize before you have all the evidence It biases the judgment.Also, I now sometimes try to analyze people based on their shoes and pants when sitting on the subway I have yet to ask anyone if I was accurate about my predictions.

    My copy of this book is a wreck, I have read it so often My dad gave it to me, I can t remember if it was a birthday or Christmas gift, but regardless it s one of the best books I ve ever been given You just have to read a couple of pages and you fall right into Holmes and Watson s world it s wonderful.

    I have no idea how I let myself get so long in the tooth before finally settling down and reading this collection Suffice to say I am glad I finally came to my senses.It is all here, every Sherlock Holmes story ever penned by Arthur Conan Doyle There are four complete novels and five books of case studies Relax I am not going to even attempt to review every one of these That would be tedious for me as well as you.There is no doubt that my hands down favourite of the entire collection was I have no idea how I let myself get so long in the tooth before finally settling down and reading this collection Suffice to say I am glad I finally came to my senses.It is all here, every Sherlock Holmes story ever penned by Arthur Conan Doyle There are four complete novels and five books of case studies Relax I am not going to even attempt to review every one of these That would be tedious for me as well as you.There is no doubt that my hands down favourite of the entire collection was The Hound of the Baskervilles, but make no mistake I loved it all.According to Goodreads I started reading this collection on June 23 of this year and I am just now able to close off my review With the exception of the novels which I read straight through once I had started them, the balance of the case files I read in between other books I must say I truly enjoyed this approach and looked forward to dropping in to see what Sherlock was up to every now and again Sadly all good things must come to an end It was however an experience I shall never forget and I shall certainly miss Watson and Holmes I may have to go back and pay them a visit again sometime

    Caro Arthur Conan Doyle, So il che rapporto con la tua pi famosa creatura non sempre stato idilliaco So che sei arrivato perfino a commettere un omicidio pur di sbarazzarti della tua onnipresente e impertinente creatura Ma sono contenta che ti sia ricreduto e che Sherlock Holmes, alla fine, sia sopravvissuto anche al suo peggior nemico il suo stesso creatore.Ora, ci sono mille altre cose che vorrei aggiungere Ad esempio, potrei dire di come abbia cominciato con Uno studio in rosso che Caro Arthur Conan Doyle, So il che rapporto con la tua pi famosa creatura non sempre stato idilliaco So che sei arrivato perfino a commettere un omicidio pur di sbarazzarti della tua onnipresente e impertinente creatura Ma sono contenta che ti sia ricreduto e che Sherlock Holmes, alla fine, sia sopravvissuto anche al suo peggior nemico il suo stesso creatore.Ora, ci sono mille altre cose che vorrei aggiungere Ad esempio, potrei dire di come abbia cominciato con Uno studio in rosso che avevo ancora una decina d anni e come, nel corso del tempo, quei racconti e quei libri mi abbiano portato ad appassionarmi sempre pi alla letteratura gialla Potrei dire di come, a Londra, mi sono fermata in contemplazione davanti alla statua di Sherlock Holmes nella famosa Baker Street, pensando al povero Watson, narratore, sempre in secondo piano, di gran parte delle storie di Holmes.Con un certo distacco, datomi anche dalle tante letture accumulate sulle mie spalle, potrei dire che non tutti i racconti sono usciti con il buco e che qualche storia pi appassionante e intricata di altre E potrei dire di come, leggendo queste storie, sia arrivata a comprendere cos in profondit i meccanismi della narrazione, da arrivare alla soluzione del caso insieme a Holmes che soddisfazione Potrei dire che queste vicende rapiscono e incantano generazioni e generazioni di lettori da oltre un secolo un sogno che ogni scrittore spera di raggiungere un giorno Potrei dire di come, nonostante in alcuni casi si trattasse di una rilettura, non abbia avvertito noia o insoddisfazione nel leggere storie gi conosciute Ma dir solo una parola grazie

    So, I m now done with reading this whole 2 volume 1,796 page Sherlock Holmes canon I spent 10 months reading all the 4 novels and 56 short stories contained herein I really liked the experience and I am proud of this accomplishment My first time to read a canon. Before reading this, I thought that the word canon only applied to biblical works Well, that was the first thing I learned upon adding this book in my currently reading folder.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in a classy classic manner a So, I m now done with reading this whole 2 volume 1,796 page Sherlock Holmes canon I spent 10 months reading all the 4 novels and 56 short stories contained herein I really liked the experience and I am proud of this accomplishment My first time to read a canon. Before reading this, I thought that the word canon only applied to biblical works Well, that was the first thing I learned upon adding this book in my currently reading folder.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote in a classy classic manner and even if his settings were not familiar to me as a Filipino, I appreciated his stories because of the universal messages in them love of a husband to a wife, a son to a father, a father to his child, etc the evil in greed especially when it comes to riches and money that men can be truly friends without homosexuality getting in between that we have to respect the people we work with always be wary of the people around you and that, if used in moderation, cocaine and morphine can actually make you sharper I cringed while typing the last one.So, what are my takeaways from Sherlock Holmes There are three 1 Logical reasoning He is a keen observer In almost every company I joined with, there is a safety program and one of the things they teach in the training is to stop and closely look up, down, left, right, front, back for every thing that we see that can cause an accident I think that if all of us in the company will have that power of keen observation, all factories will have zero unsafe incidents Not only that, because Holmes has that keen observation, he uses those things that he sees to link them to his hypotheses and when he applies his knowledge in forensics having a background on medicine , to the things he observes, it results to his power of deduction.2 Ability to disguise I am still to see any Sherlock Holmes television episodes or movies but this one makes the story unbelievable for a middle age man like me but interesting enough to engage me while reading Sherlock Holmes can be anybody a pheasant, a woman, an old man, a soldier, a dead person, etc Not only that, some of his characters put disguises too This fantasy element in the story is entertaining in my mind but it is the least in terms of the practical application of what I learned from Sherlock Holmes For one, I could not freaking imagine myself dressed like a woman.3 Forensic skills From the first few pages of the A Study in Scarlet when the very young Sherlock Holmes told Dr Watson how to detect blood from the scene, I was mesmerized Oh, I thought I knew it from my medical technology readings way back 3 decades ago However, I am not practicing that profession so at times I already forget what I learned before Sir Conan Doyle really puts his passion into each novel and short story because he incorporated what he learned from medical books but even history, travel and other sciences such as anthropology, handwriting analysis, weaponry, zoology and botany I still remember the giant jellyfish He must have been a very well read gentlemen.My favorite novel of course is The Hound of the Baskervilles followed by The Sign of Four. My top 10 favorite stories are below Interestingly, while typing this, I checked a website and all, except 1, of my choices are not among the Top 12 Sherlockians choices haha.1.The Final Problem Memoirs 5 stars2 His Last Bow Last Bow 5 stars3 The Adventure of the Retired Colourman Case Book 5 stars4 The Five Orange Pips Adventures 4 stars5 The Copper Beeches Adventures 4 stars6 The Naval Treaty Memoirs 4 stars7 The Adventure of the Empty House Return 4 stars8 The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton Return 4 stars9 The Adventure of the Three Students Return 4 stars10 The Adventure of the Devil s Foot Last Bow 4 starsMaybe I am just strange but I always enjoy stories that either speak to me or at least surprise me Anyway, I will definitely miss Sherlock Holmes But I have to move on to Samuel Beckett
