really liked it

The stories of Sherlock Holmes were one of my first introductions to the mystery genre and so it was with a mixture of excitement and hesitancy that I read this volume. There was excitement in re-reading this fantastic story and seeing how it would translate to images. However, there was hesitancy in reading a well-crafted story in another form and wondering if the new form ruins the precision of the story and the memory of what the story was and meant.

Fortunately, this full colour graphic novel is faithful to the feel and story of the original book. What stands out is how well the art matches the tone and story of the original. If there were still those who mistakenly believe that anything told with pictures is only suitable for up to teenagers, this work goes a long way to dispelling that. For those unfamiliar, this work is a suitable introduction into the world of Sherlock Holmes. For those familiar, it is a fine telling of the story.
