Happy New Year! The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is the third Sherlock Holmes book by Arthur Conan Doyle. This is the first short story compilation of Sherlock Holmes short stories. The stories in this book take place after Dr. Watson got married and started a private practice or were from before he got married, but wern't writtenuntil after he was married. He would occasionally go on investigations with Holmes after he got married when things were going slow in his doctor's office.
I like this book, some stories better than others. Some of the stories contained in this book I've heard on old time radio programs ore have seen on episodes of the old Sherlock Holmes television series. But here I am experiencing them as written by Doyle, which are better without the sensalizations that they put in the old radio or television programs. I've been watchin the BBC series "Sherlock" on Netflix and PBS where I see them tie in some of the activities from these stories. When they do tie in something I read, I try to remember which story contained those characters or incidents.
