Sherlock-loving son solved readership riddle

A funny and interesting article by Richard Glover in The Sydney Morning Herald.

His youngest son, just returned from University and has been avidly watching BBC Sherlock episodes back-to-back. To his father's astonishment he announces, despite always being a reluctant reader, 'I've just downloaded a couple of Arthur Conan Doyle stories,' he says. 'They're really good you know. Great storyteller.'

Good article.

I've always loved books and reading. I grew up watching Basil Rathbone Sherlock movies but never really had a desire to read the ACD books...until I started watching the current Sherlock series. Now I'm reading A Study in Scarlet and can't wait to get my hands on the rest of his stories.

Re: Sherlock-loving son solved readership riddle

It's funny, because Richard is an author of several books as well as writing regular newspaper columns and his partner, Debra Oswald, is a playwright  and screenwriter. Hopefully, now the boy has discovered ACD he will stick with reading.
