i was gobsmacked to realise that i hadn’t touched the sherlock holmes series since january last year… no idea where that time went, and also weird since i was enjoying the series quite a bit. but i’m back on it now and i’m glad i am; the memoirs of sherlock holmes was another nice entry into the series.

At first Sherlock Holmes stories are interesting, but after a while they become repetitive. This seems to be the point where Doyle ran out of ideas and just started repeating himself. Half the plots are just repeated from previous stories.

Read for book club. Love these. Sparse, tight writing that evokes so much atmosphere.
