Book: The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes

6/10/20

The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle is the final book of the Sherlock Holmes series written. In this final book, there were many interesting cases written in Watson and Holmes POV. That's right! In this book we finally got to read some cases in Holmes POV which as you may have guessed is different from Watson's own thought process. For chapters that had Homles POV, we get to finally see the crime scenes in Holmes persepctive and how he observes the little details that will eventually lead to the solution of the case. Holmes' POV chapters are definitely different from Watson's because they seem to also have more scientific knowledge and thought process in them. Although, there aren't as many chapters in Holmes POV, Watson's way of telling the story is more familiar to me which is probably because the series was in his POV to begin with. Nevertherless, both POV bring in exciting cases for the readers and the many variations in how cases happened, in which some are easier to predict on what might be the solution while other cases makes you think that the cases are impossible to solve until Holmes explains his deduction to Watson. Overall, it has been fun reading this book and hope others will like it too!

Rating: 9/10

Recommend?: Maybe, because mystery genres aren't for everyone and some may think there are better mystery novels.
