3.5 stars rounded up to 4

I enjoyed the first part of the story but I'll admit that it it was a bit difficult for me to disassociate it from the BBC TV series "Sherlock" which is one of my favourites. The first part was very good, I enjoyed seeing how Sherlock Holmes thinks and I quite like Doctor Watson. The second part irritated me until the end because I didn't know what was going on or how it related to the story until the end, so I had to push myself to keep going. Overall, I can see why this is a classic.
