I'm surprised at many of the comments regarding this particular narrative of Watson's take on Sherlock's handling of this case.

-Discussion Questions:
1.A young man was suspected as the criminal in this book.
Have you ever been misunderstood by someone?
Actually no, but if I were so, I would be surprised and become confusion.

2.There are many suspense stories, for example, detective one, police one..
Do you like the genre "suspense"?
I do
I love Sherlock Holmes but it is a little too difficult for me to read. There were some parts that I didn't understand. Charles McCarthy was killed right after fighting with his son. Most people accursed the son but Sherlock Holmes wasn't convinced - he tried to find out some little facts which was leading him innocent.
Nice book, easy English, but that story was so clear, only 2 persons who can be murderer. And how much is possible that women will kill her lover. But part about history which happend in Australia was at least bit interesting.
