I started reading this because I love the BBC "Sherlock" show, and I wanted to better understand where the stories came from and the references the show makes to the classic stories. I was also interested in the format of a sidekick narrator telling the story.

This was almost a year ago, and I didn't get very far in. All of my experience with Sherlock Holmes up to this point has been through various TV and movie adaptations, which tend to skip over some of the enormous digressions that exist in the original text.

I don't remember exactly why I stopped reading this book, but the fact is, I did.
