Sherlock Holmes, minus Benedict Cumberbatch

In preparation for my Genre Studies class that starts Monday, I’m working ahead on assigned reading. We have to read several books from a variety of genres. Some I’m excited about (crime fiction) and some I’m not (science fiction). For the first time ever, I’m reading Arthur Conan Doyle – i.e., Sherlock Holmes. It’s been a fun ride since I’m able to picture these guys:

Sherlock and Watson

Could these two be any more perfect?

Writing-wise, Sherlock¬†isn’t exactly how I imagined it would be. It’s a bit – should I say – elementary? I’m not sure why I expected the style¬†to be more complex, but nevertheless, it isn’t. Both The Sign of Four and A Study in Scarlet have been quick, delightful reads.

Speaking of, Major loves it when I read on the patio.

Living the dream

Happy Friday, Internet. May the sun shine warmly on your face. And other parts.
