Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I am also reading The Valley Of Fear. It is really good. I love the way the atmosphere of the place is created.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I've 'been reading' The Valley of Fear for weeks now. Until the last few days I've been too busy to read more than a tiny bit at a time and when I do get the chance I have to go back an reread the previous bit *rolls eyes*. I hate reading like this!!

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I'm reading "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" right now in the original English version, very nice story so far.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

Today I finished reading The Blanched Soldier. It was pretty cool actually. It's one of the ones narrated by Sherlock instead of Watson, and you can definitely tell the difference in style. It's got some nice moments in when Holmes is knocking Watson for being to sentimental in his writing.

Still reading 'The Valley of Fear'. TBH not desperately keen on the backstory  . But I'm not a quitter!!

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

Just finished "A study in scarlet", my Kindle debut. It's wonderful to see how many elements of the story are woven into the fabric of ASiP. I'm looking forward to the book club discussion.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I read "The Sign of Four" and "A Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Adventure of the Red-Headed League". But there's still a lot to rediscover. I loved Scandal, it was great to discover all the nods from "Sherlock".

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I recently started reading the canon again. Even though I read all the novels and short-stories before, I have so much fun re-reading them because I recognise elements they brought into the show. 

It's "The red-headed league" at the moment, one of my favourites from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

After having finished the Adventures during my summer vacation, I'm now reading the Hound.

It keeps amazing me how different Henry is there. And how lonely John is for most of the time...

I have bought the English version with the introduction by Mr. Cumberbatch himself...

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I'm almost ashamed to say that I haven't read any of the canon prior to watching Sherlock, so I finally downloaded the complete works to my Nook. I'm currently at the beginning--A Study In Scarlet--and enjoying it very much. I need to make more time to read (rather than, say being on the internet or watching TV shows ) but I will finish them eventually.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

I finished The Valley of Fear yesterday night. OMG it's chilling!! That "Sherlock Holmes stories" moment when you you're surprised "I should've thought of it!"  and then you're surprised again!    I feel like Watson when I read the stories, because I never see what's going on, that's what I like in SH, we can be one character, the doctor's narrative make us feel like we're as involved as he is.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

Well, I just read "A Study in scarlet" and "The sign of four"  for the first time this week, 
I find it very interesting to compare it with the show http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
 I plan to read some more of ACD's work.

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

Well done, A Study in Scarlet 's a tough one to start with! I loved it though. I think you chose well for your ACD debut, TSOF is good for reference-spotting in the show too

Re: What Canon story are you reading?

Well, I've tried to start with the first one, and to follow with the chronogical order, it seemed more logical to me. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


I must admit that when it started to go with the whole "Mormon stuff" I was wondering where it was going ! ^^ But it all made sense afterward, so that's ok

Yes, and now I understand the reference about Tonga and the blowpipe when Sherlock mention it in his wedding speech ! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png
