A Study in Scarlet

A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle

My first experience with Sherlock Holmes. Very reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe’s Dupin stories, not surprisingly. I’m intrigued and will read more Holmes soon. I loved the two-part structure and how everything comes together at the end. Very clever and creative. Characters serve their purpose without much development, which is fine for such a plot-driven book. Apprehensive of the European bias against early Mormon communities in the US. I had seen this in Jules Verne’s writings too. Highly entertaining.
