My Take on the Book:
It's the first time that I've read Sherlock Holmes, and found it quite enjoyable. It amazes me how Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could switch between an english and western setting so easily. I ended up giving this book a 5 star rating.

Last Word:
Even though I enjoyed this book; it took me quite a while to finish it; since there were two or three times where I had to set it aside (since it was a leisurely read); to get to review books. It took me just a little over a month to finish it.
