Sherlock September Wrap-Up

I decided to post a separate wrap-up for my Sherlock read through. As I read them all this month and they are mysteries, it will be hard to go into detail, but I do have ratings for each individual story and I will bold the stories I gave five star to.

Study in Scarlet: 4 stars
This was the first Sherlock story so there is some set up which made the length and reasoning for this being an actual book understandable.

Sign of Four: 3 stars
The only reason this seemed to be book length was to introduce Watson’s wife as the mystery didn’t seem to need that much length.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: average 3.84 stars
A Scandal in Bohemia: 4 stars
The Adventures of the Red-Headed League: 5 stars
