A Study In Scarlet: A Sherlock Holmes Murder Mistery Reviews
What can I say? To anyone lucky enough to come across one of these rareties, its value is evident just by flicking through it. It is the tale of one of Holmes' most famous adventures, but told in dossier form, supposedly put together by Watson (and later, loaned to Conan Doyle according to Watson's notes). Included are little peices of evidence, such as the golden ring, the poison pills and photos of carriage tracks from the street, along with notes annotated by Holmes in his own, peculiar way.
The original version of this book includes "evidence" in real envelopes. This is just a cheap copy without any of those goodies. It's fun reading the viewpoints of narrators from the original tale, but it's a poor copy of the original.
The story told through newspaper articles, journal entries and bits of evidence instead of a straight narrative.
This book is more a gimmick than a pastiche in truth, but a cute gimmick. It is, simply, the first Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, reverse engineered. For example, the first few pages include a 1983 letter to the publisher describing the contents of a fabled dispatch box, and an 1886 letter from Watson to Conan Doyle, giving him permission to take the notes/documents which follow and form them into something readable. It then, in a colorful and entertaining way, outlines the entire happenings of A Study in Scarlet, starting with Watson's medical discharge from the army, ending with the newspaper article cited on the last page of the original. Most of the original text is recreated here, split between quoted documents, articles, telegrams, and such, and personal accounts. Watson's words are themselves split between diary entries, written with a free hand, and sections which he types up with more details. Much of Holmes' dialogue from the original, when not quoted exactly by Watson, is corrected or added in the margins in Holmes' own hand. Read more atThe Blue Fairy's Bookshelf: A Study in Scarlet
Memalukan memang baru baca seri pertamanya sekarang. Tapi better late than none kan??? :). Well, seperti biasa aku tidak bisa menebak siapa pembunuhnya. Si J.H itu. Karena dendam kesumat. Tapi nasib si pembunuh juga tragis, mati karena jantungnya pecah. Biar begitu dia bahagia sudah bisa balas dendam atau menegakkan keadilan kalo menurutnya walaupun harus berjuang 20 th untuk melakukannya. Si Holmes memang briliant, seandainya d dunia ini memeng bener2 ada orang kayak dia. Sayangnya, tetap ada kekurangan dg Si holmes ini, pecandu kokain. Ugh!!. Ah, aku sudah terlanjur nge fans sama dia. oh iya, gara2 lit filmnya sekarang imajinasiku akan sosok Sherlock Holmes kok jadi terpengaruh y?? Agak menyebalkan, sebisa mungkin sewaktu membaca aku mengimajinasikannya sesuai keinginanku seperti biasa tapi lama2 yg muncul di otakku ya si Downey Robert Jr. itu. Ah, si Holmes jadi bener2 setengah gila dalam arti harfiah klo bgt.. HmmmmAku jadi mikir2 kata2 Holmes yg bilang tidak semua pengetahuan yg ia dapat harus disimpan dlm otaknya. Bahkan yg tdk diperlukan harus cepet2 dibuang. Ini berlawanan dg apa yg kuyakini selama ini, bahwa yg namanya tau itu boleh2 saja bwt ilmu tapi apa iya. Apa sebaiknya cuma fokus sama yg berguna bwat kita aja???
A dispatch box bearing the name John H. Watson, M.D. was kept in the vaults of the bank Cox & Co., Charing Cross, London. This famous and fictional box kept the records of all of the cases in which Dr. Watson participated with Sherlock Holmes, and was believed lost during the Blitz of 1940.It is now found to have survived, and the records of Holmes' first case with Watson is collected and set forth here, as a series of notes and examples by Holmes in the science of detection, and as personal reminiscences by Watson on the methods and personality of the greatest character in modern English.
This is an outstandingly interesting edition of the story. It's not a book, per se, but instead is the case file. It contains letters and newspaper clippings, and even the woman's wedding ring and the pill in little glassine envelopes. If you know the story, you'll enjoy this edition.
This was interesting from the point of view of a non Mormon. The writing was interesting, though. I remember liking some of the Sherlock Holmes stories when I was in the 6th grade.
I was suprised that it was so easy to read and follow along with.
Kinda weird...kinda interesting...like a good car crash
