Sherlock – Martin Fido

The full title is Sherlock: The Facts and Fiction Behind the World’s Most Famous Detective.


I really wanted to love this book. I tried so hard to love this. But I could not. I am still up-in-the-air on if I even liked it. I liked the pictures from the original books, and the images from the movies and television shows from past to present.

I liked the back story on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and even some history about each of the major players in Sherlock’s life.

I cannot describe exactly what it was that made this story so difficult to read. It was almost written as if Mr. Doyle never existed; everyone talked about were real people; and I really could not distinguish the real Sherlock stories from the fiction that was added.

I know I am tired; but I will never be that tired…
