Reviews by Murdoch Cholmes

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Having read several of the reviews on this page - i feel the need to intervene. as many have said there are few if any action scenes within the holmes novels but that is precisely the point. Holmes is not a policeman or action hero - he is a private investigator. Therefore he investigates - as he comments himself he craves cases that are interesting not merely run of the mill murders, those he leaves to scotland yard. The true power of doyles work is the heroes brain - holmes uses his skills for deduction to solve crime not his brawn.
