Thoughts: As a fan of mysteries novels I’m surprised that I haven’t read A Study in Scarlet yet. I’m glad that I did read it in the end because it was really good and just a really fun read.
I loved all three mystery stories within the book and I had actually come across the third one, The Adventures of the Speckled Band somewhere before.
I had already known how Sherlock Holmes operates yet I still found it fascinating reading about all the deductions he’d ever made. It was just really fun reading about all the connections and how they were made.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading A Study in Scarlet and look forward to reading more in the series.
