Holmes is hired by the King of Bohemia to recover blackmail evidence, held by the woman whom the king once promised to marry, but abandoned for a woman of noble birth.

Well this was a surprise; the classics and especially mysteries are not my usual fare but due to my recent obsession with the BBC series Sherlock (How yummy is Benedict Cumberbatch) and then watching Downey and Jude Law in the movie Game Of Shadows I realized that I had never actually read any of Conan Doyle’s stories ...more

She was the love object for many men, among them the King of Bohemia who promised her ten years ago that he would one day offer his hand in marriage. Now, with the public announcement of his marriage to the daughter of the King of Sweden just three days away, the King fears th ...more

Tonight’s show will be a modern reworking of A Scandal in Bohemia, first published in The Strand in 1891. This story is much-loved by Sherlockians, and Doyle himself (rather precisely) ranked it as his fifth favourite Holmes story.
The original story sees the King ...more
Honestly, and perhaps it's because I've seen the subject matter dealt with twice in the two modern re-tellings (both Cumberbatch and Downey jr), it was a rather underwhelming (ah-ha) affair. I was expecting a clash of wits, a cunning plan, some escalating action. Anything really, but it was a bit of a misfire as far as the ...more
“When I hear you give your reasons,” I remarked(Dr Watson), ”the things always appears to me to be so ridiculously simple that I could easily do it myself, though at each successive instance of your reasoning I am baffled until you explain your process. And yet I believe that my eyes are as good as yours.”
As always it is a delight to read these timeless and age-proof tales, however, this ...more
اولین ظهور (شرلوک هولمز) در رمان (اتود در قرمز لاکی) صورت میگیرد و در رمان (نشانهی چهار) برای دومین ظاهر میشود

فى البداية توفرت لي نسخة معدّلة ومختصرة لتلك القصة,وكونها مختصرة فكان طبيعياً أن تتآكل أحداثها وحواراتها حتى النخاع,وتصير قصة مهترئة سخيفة ومحبطة,ولهذا أعطيتها تقييماً منخفضاً للغاية.
لكن حين قرأت النسخة الأصلية أثارت دهشتي وإعجابي جداً,فالقصة فعلاً ممتعة وشيقة,أحداثها مكتملة وسلسة ومرتبة,وشعرت نوعاً أن الأمور عادت لنصابها الصحيح,إنه (هولمز) يا سادة فكيف تكون له قصة سخيفة هكذا؟.
أعترف فقط أنني مازالت أتعجب كيف ...more

I finally started watching BBC's Sherlock and fell in love. Sherlock has always been one of my favorites, but the new show has completely revamped my love for the detective. A Scandal in Bohemia was a fun, hilarious ride to meet "the woman" who could outwit Sherlock Holmes.
Let's get to it.
Sherlock's quirks make his character unforgettable, without a doubt. I loved revisiting Baker Street and watching with Wa ...more
It began, it moves, it rotates, it unfolds and in the end it leaves us and Sherlock a question! Either we are devastated or gratified. I have been astound after reading this story because I am dubious that Irene Adler as perhaps the only women that he was attracted to but why is it had to be this way? I question myself the same since I read this story.
I read this because I watched A Scandal in Belgravia from Sherlock. And I can't decide whether watching A Scandal in Belgravia before reading this 'made it' or 'broke' this book for me. It's the same when I was reading A Study in Scarlet, in which I already have this preset picture of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson looking like RDJ and Jude Law, respectively. The t ...more
Irene has a picture of herself and the King together, which the King would like Sherlock to recover for him before his upcoming marriage. The King is afraid it will cause a scandal if Irene decides to go public with the picture.
This is a very easy story to follow, no murders or anything of the s ...more
Holmes is now on the favorable shelf, his deductions are quite fascinating to read! I agree with Watson he makes the reasoning so simple as to make you think that it should have the been the most obvious thing in the world.
Perfect reading for a rainy day!
أعتقد ان الإطراء ده يستحقه الكاتب مش شخصية هولمز :D
This is my Third read in the Sherlock Holmes series, I must confess it is the merriest of the three.
It does not possess the intrigue and nuisance that is The Hounds of Baskerville with its multi-layered plot nor the laborious subplot of A Study in Scarlet.
Scandal in Bohemia is just plain fun.
Watson's narration is almost tickle worthy if there is such a thing. He's clearly enamored with Holmes and Holmes relishes the admiration.
For those, who like myself are 'addicted' to ...more
