bookshelves: currently-reading

The starting was that Sherlock Holmes got really bored and Watson was looking at him and knew that Sherlock took cocaine three times a day. But when Sherlock were getting so board, the one woman called Mary came to see him to found her father. Her father some years previously disappeared...

The book is really nice and I like it. Even though this is really old book. When I first read this book my thoughts about Sherlock Holmes changed. My initial thoughts about Sherlock Holmes was ''bored'' But now is ''awesome''

I really like the starting of the book, it says Sherlock Holmes took his bottle from the corner of the mantelpiece, and his hypodermic syringe from its neat morocco case. I thought he is somehow rich because the things sounds like really expensive. And I thought he is really bored because nothing is happening.

The thing which is fun when you are reading this book is that you can found things in 150 years before. I'm still on the way of reading this book but I already found this nice. Also I really like the combination of Sherlock Holmes and Watson.

Kaixuan I agree with you when you said that you think the book is nice, even though it is old. I also find it really interesting and the suspense in the book is really tense. This is the second Sherlock Holmes book that I've read, and I really like them both so far. I hope that the book just keeps getting better and better, and that the books will continue to surprise and entertain me. I also really understand how you also seem to have really liked the book. Now that you've finished it, did you enjoy it?
