Re: Have you read the complete Sherlock Holmes canon?

I remember Benedict reading out a Holmes story. It was quite confusing, shall we say.... http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

"-solve crimes?"
"Oh"

Oh, I fully agree! But especially this one is a bit .... difficult... to read in bed or in the garden.

Re: Have you read the complete Sherlock Holmes canon?

Wow, I didn't expect Study in Scarlet to be so long. 
After all, I'm relieved that I'm not having understanding problems. It's all beautifully and well written.

Re: Have you read the complete Sherlock Holmes canon?

No, unfortunately, not all of the Canon.
I know there are more stories I have not read.
But I have read most of it.
And loved it. When I first saw the Granada series with Jeremy Brett
I felt like the Canon came alive for me. Still my favorite.
I have enjoyed many adaptations of Sherlock Holmes.
This new BBC series pulled me right in from the first 5 minutes.
Martin and Benedict are super.

Re: Have you read the complete Sherlock Holmes canon?

I bought the collection recently. I've read Study in Scarlet, Sign of Four and all of the Adventures collection. I read Silver Blaze the other night and I aim to read more over the next few days so that I can read Hound of the Baskervilles this weekendhttp://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Have you read the complete Sherlock Holmes canon?

I like Silver Blaze. I think it is a story that would transfer well to the screen.

It's not my first language either but I find it surprisingly easy to read. I understand why Moftiss are so big fanboys. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: Have you read the complete Sherlock Holmes canon?

In my adolescent years, quite a while ago ;o) I read the canon (from the library) for the first time - including fond memories of watching different adaptions on (german) TV and I have been hooked on Holmes since. :o)
Of course long since I own the books, in a beautiful german version, hard copies in nine volumes.

Some stories of the original, english version I have read online and it is so enjoyable and amazing! Alas, I couldn't decide yet, which printed version I would like to own. There are so many great editions out there.
Perhaps I should check the local antiquarian bookshops for some lovely old Penguins sometime. ;o)
 


In my life I have found two things of priceless worth - learning and loving. Nothing else - not fame, not power, not achievement for its own sake - can possible have the same lasting value. For when your life is over, if you can say 'I have learned' and 'I have loved', you will also be able to say 'I have been happy'.
~ Arthur C. Clarke ~
