Book Review – The Sign of Four

The Sign of FourThe Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle

Review: This was the first Sherlock Holmes story I have ever read. There is no doubt that Conan Doyle is a great writer. His wordsmithing skills shine through every page. I chose this particular Holmes because I had not heard anything about it or seen any adaptations. I wanted to remain surprised at the outcome. However, there might be a reason this mystery has not been adapted. While still fairly good and very much like what I expected from Sherlock Holmes, it was not, I think, the best example of Sherlockian literature. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it.
