I have been doing some reading on the Kindle app on my phone while I rock my daughter to sleep. I've managed to get through the first of the 'Sherlock Holmes" novels, A Study in Scarlet. I won't do a proper review because Arthur Conan Doyle's work is too long established as classic for my opinion to be of any great consequence, but I will say this: how good is it?!?!?!
No, really. I so often struggle with the 'classics' because they're so much more wordier and heavier than modern novels. As a rule they seem much more content to plod along at a slower pace. Not so with good ol' Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson! It's just so witty and light and entertaining and mysterious and fascinating. I splurged and spent a whole 99 cents to get the complete works. Make no mistake, I will get through them all.
