Uno studio in rosso (4/5)

Approcciare Conan Doyle dopo aver passato anni con Agatha Christie è come ascoltare i Rolling Stones dopo essere cresciuti con i Beatles. Quindi è con una lieve diffidenza e curiosità, attenzione e richiesta di standard alti che mi sono approcciato a questa enorme edizione onnicomprensiva, pronto allo scatto critico per trovare la scusa all'aver temporeggiato cosi' a lungo.

Per ora, amplissima soddisfazione. Costruzione ineccepibile. Il secondo capitolo pensavo fosse proprio un altro racconto e il modo in cui si innesta al primo è da antologia.
CD appassiona, tiene avvinti, stupisce.

Un po' come Aftermath.

Il segno dei Quattro (4/5)

Complicato, intrecciato, forse un po' troppo ad incastro, la soluzione è tutta nella testa di C.D. Pero' C.D. scrive bene, le pagine scivolano via ed è un peccato doversi interrompere per i quotidiani fatti della vita.

Le avventure di Sherlock Holmes (4/5)

Tanti racconti che compongono questo lungo libro, che incuriosisce per la fantasia del narratore, ma dopo un po' onestamente, stufa. Emerge il lato spocchiosetto del personaggio, che estrae indizi da evidenze impossibili da contestare, che arriva a conclusioni che nascono prima delle cause che le hanno create. Questo strano legame effetto-causa mi induce ad accantonare il voluminoso e scomodo libro a maggior vantaggio di altri, piu' snelli nella fisicità e più aperti nella partecipazione attiva del lettore.

I had a hard time figuring out a rating for this first volume, because I really disliked the first two novels (weird Mormon tangent, anyone?), felt indifferent about a few more, and loved some others (especially Hound of the Baskervilles). On average, my rating probably falls between 3.5 and 4.

I am one of the many that decided to take on this mammoth of a book after watching the BBC series Sherlock.

Sherlock Holmes is Arthur Conan Doyle's famous creation - a creation we all know the author would later come to despise.

Sherlock Holmes is blunt, crass and just plain rude, but because is a genius the people who come to him for help really just have to put up with it. He's an addict; several times in the book, in different stories, we see him taking cocaine much to the chagrin of his friend John Watson.

One of my main gripes about this book though is Mary. She just disappears without warning halfway through! Only when I finished the book and researched what happened to Mary Morstan did I realise she had an off-screen death that prompted John to move back in with Sherlock. And then we don't even see John upset by this. His wife just died and he's all "Meh" about it.

Ah, true love in the Victorian Era. How quaint. ( )
