REVIEW: A Study In Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle




"A Study in Scarlet" is the first published story of one of the most famous literary detectives of all time, Sherlock Holmes. Here Dr. Watson, who has just returned from a war in Afghanistan, meets Sherlock Holmes for the first time when they become flat-mates at the famous 221 B Baker Street. In "A Study in Scarlet" Sherlock Holmes investigates a murder at Lauriston Gardens as Dr. Watson tags along with Holmes while narratively detailing his amazing deductive abilities.

I first read A Study In Scarlet in middle school, I believe, but I've been rereading the entire Sherlock canon since I'm thinking about doing my writing sample for grad school applications of the series. Sherlock Holmes was that series for me, the one that made me want to become an English major and then focus on Victorian literature, and since A Study In Scarlet is the novel that introduced me to Sherlock and Watson, it will always have a special place in my heart and on my right ankle*.

One of my favorite things about Sherlock is how he typifies the Victorian obsession with logic and science, but does it in a more emotionally engaging way than I would have thought possible before reading these novels and short stories. Sherlock is hands down one of my favorite literary characters.

If you haven't already read these amazing stories, then now is definitely the time to pour yourself a cup of hot tea, clear your schedule, and find a cozy place to sit for a while, because there is no putting A Study In Scarlet down once you've started it.

* I have a tattoo on my right ankle that says, ' "Elementary," said he. '
