Summary -This is my review of the book The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by by Arthur Conan Doyle
I listened to this as a Librivox recording over the last few days whilst I have been coding a website. One of the enjoyable things is that evidently over the years I have either heard, seen or read some of these stories before, as I was able to sort of recognise the stories as I listened to them. It then became a must to have guessed the result before the reveal and get points if I got it right. (I got more right than wrong).
It is claimed that the title character of Sherlock Holmes was named after famous American poet Oliver Wendell Holmes. The stories were originally published in the Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. They were then collected together into a book of 12 stories as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
I found these an enjoyable distraction and will listen to some more. This was book 38 week 26 fiction 36 (11 on audio) non fiction 2
