A Study In Scarlet
Part One: Being a peprint from the reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D., late of the army medical department
Two murders had occurred, but the assassin seems to be the third one who has nothing to do with the victims.
Sherlock didn't tell the whole matter completely in this part, but by what the other two detectives and Sherlock had found, from their descriptions, you may put the puzzles together by yourself. In this part, you can know more about the characters of Sherlock, his thoughts, theories, works about deduction from Dr. Watson's observations.

Part Two: The Country of the Saints
->Finished the case of A Study In Scarlet tonight!!!
One chapter at least per night.
Well done, Mia Chen!! :D
Keep going on.
I like Sherlock when he analyzes the matters he perceived,
I can read it really fast in this part without obstacles.
In the case of A Study In Scarlet, he showed us how to solve questions,
when you're only have the result first, and then how to reason it backwards.

I found that Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle really likes Germany.
German vocabularies and people appear in Sherlock Holmes for many times.
After I searched it on website, I think it's because he had studied in Austria.
And he had also been to Western Africa as a surgeon on ship, this got me thinking about Dr. Watson and scenes of voyage in the book.
You see, there are many characters in each book, but they represent different parts of its author.
"You see, but you do not observe"
This is what Sherlock has emphasized all time time. :D - 2012/02/18

...it's not that it took me over three years of constant reading to finish it, of course. I have kept this (massive) tome "on the side" to re-immerse myself in Victorian London whenever I felt like it.
It is clear that Sir A.C. Doyle, the author, got bored of his character, seeing that the last collection of short stories he published features less interesting - and shorter - adventures, but the overall quality is, as we all know, amazing.
Not much more can be said about something everybody knows of. Just that it is a smooth, pleasant, catchy read.

I vividly remember hauling this big ass book to 4th grade every day. It probably caused long term damage to my back. Damn you, Sherlock. It was really good then and I'll read it again eventually.
