Sherlock Holmes! It was great to see how similar A Study in Scarlet was to "A Study in Pink." This first book is very introductory, as it's basically Watson figuring out that Holmes is...Holmes. The mystery is intriguing and has a nice progression, but...I'm sorry, I can't give this four stars because halfway through the book it turns into some bizarre Mormon adventure. It's not irrelevant because it's the backstory for the case, but it's entirely unnecessary, and it kills the momentum. I look forward to more adventures with Watson and Holmes, though! Perhaps when Doyle has realized the reader does not care about things that do not involve Watson and Holmes solving mysteries.
