قرأتها سريعا قبل النوم

جميلة ومشوقة ... مختلفة عن غيرها ... ومحيرة نوعا ما فلقد شككت في الشخص الخطا ةظللت حتى آخر الوقت أتوقع ارتباطه بالقضية بشكل ما

أحب شيرلوك هولمز حقا وأحب كثيرا هذه الحقبة حيث تدور المغامرات فهي مثيرة للخيال بكل ما تحتويه من وصف لأسلوب التعامل وأسلوب الحديث بين الشخصيات وكذلك وصف الأماكن ومظهر الشخصيات وسلوكهم

أول قرأة لمغامرات شيرلوك هولمز
ذكرتني طريقة السرد بطريقة آجاثا كريستي وهيركول بوارو ولو إن الأخير أخف دمًا

بالنسبة للغز نفسة كانت فكرته جيدة إلي حد ما
لا تكفي أن تكون قصة لوحدها كانت من الممكن أن تكون داخل مجموعة قصصية لشيرلوك هولمز كانت ستكون أكثر قيمة ودسامة
ولكنها لن تكون الأخير في تلك السلسلة إن شاء الله

In this story, Doctor Percy Trevelyan brings Holmes an unusual problem. Having been a brilliant student but a poor man, Dr. Trevelyan has found himself a participant in an unusual business arrangement. A man named Blessington, claiming to have some money to invest, has set Dr. Trevelyan up in premises with a prestigious address and paid all his expenses. In return, he demands three-fourths of all the money that the doctor’s practice earns, which he collects every evening, going over the books th ...more

Good and solid story, but after reading about 15 other short stories about Holmes it slowly gets repetitive.

solida y concisa pero después de varios relatos cortos se hace un poco repetitivo

Zit goed in elkaar. Leuk verhaal.

As in the Red-Headed League, The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb, and The Adventure of the Stockbroker's Clerk, Holmes' services are requested by someone who has entered into an unusual financial arrangement with a mysterious stranger. This one develops differently than those, however. Doyle keeps the tension high throughout, making for an engaging read.

Well this time, I was disappointed. The deductions were much too fabricated, and with constant mention of tour de force, I was annoyed with its emphasis when there was barely anything of that sort, in genuine.
Also, as it has happened again here that if someone manages to get away from the grasp of Holmes, even then he doesn't have much chances with his life, since Almighty Himself would punish him/them one way or other. Once it is okay, but when it starts happening repeatedly, well, then shoot!

Yet again, a very wonderful story relating, Sherlock. It was worth reading.

In " The Resident Patient" the main thing we get to experience is the way Sherlock Holmes uses his ingenious to understand what his victim is doing or thinking without a word said. He uses the smallest details in the most important ways. Also what I found in this one of many memoirs of Sherlock Holmes is that the ending was never really deducible until the very last moment, witch keeps all readers hyped up and anxious until the very last moment.

I hate to say this, but I actually found Watson's description of fat man Blessington 's suicide to be quite humorous, if not grotesque. I just can't imagine an obese man in a nightgown dangling from a rope like that. Nevertheless.", The Resident Patient was highly enjoyable and a memorable adventure for Holmes and Watson,

When young Dr. Percy is approached by a benefactor who will set him up in business and pay all of his expenses, what could possibly go wrong? As Sir Doyle has taught us time and time again, one should look very carefully at such circumstances!

One of the more bland Sherlock Holmes stories, I prefer when there is more mystery to the plot and how the murder was committed.
Prashansa
It was a real excitement. I liked it. The way Sherlock Holmes solves the mystery is superb.

Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism record
