This is my first Sherlock Holmes story ever! This was easy to punge into, since the Holmes character is so iconic, I didn't feel I needed much backstory. And I didn't get it.

The novel is narrated to us by his trusty assistant, Dr. Watson, who observes keenly nuances in landscape, in human emotions, and so ably conducts a clear account of all that has happened.

I am so glad to have read this book after reading so many Agatha Christie novels featuring Hercule Poirot. Now I can really see that he is her Sherlock Holmes. Interesting.

It is a wonder to me how timeless and gothic this tale really is. I LOVE the premise of the plot, and the grandeur of the gloom. I cannot wait to read more of the Holmes stories, which I suppose I will have to before the movie comes out later this year.

I have a very nice hardcover Whitman / Western and illustrated by Hal Frenck.
