Did you like it? Why / why not?In my opinion, this is a book with six mysterious stories. I really liked it because I love this type of books. Each story has their own plot with a lot of details. All the stories have the same point of view, the
..."nt of view, the point of view of Watson, a really close friend of Sherlock. Then, you can imagine you are inside of each story (That makes you feel useful). This book shows you how a man, Arthur Conan Doyle, has the ability to make you feel inside the story. And his stories make you think too.
Would you recommend it to another Level 4 student? Yes, the vocabulary is perfect, because Crime and Punishment is a topic of our level. There are some expressions, words... that we will have some problems to understand but the context help us to make it easier. In addition, the chapters are short and you can follow it, but the mystery is kept until the end.
Finally. Finished.The annotations are worth the price as a whole, totally. Despite the original writings being filled with racistic, nationalistic, anti-feministic and insane values, The Canon is still enjoyable, if one is able to see past these
..."past these things. It's a brilliant collection, and I firmly recommend it. "The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes" is a bit dodgy as it's written at the very end of The Canon, when Conan Doyle basically wanted to stop writing about Holmes, which is very evident.Continua...Nascondi
