Classics Challenge | A Mystery, Thriller, Suspense
What’s it ABOUT: Missing treasure!
What did I NOT know before reading this? That our boy Sherlock is a drug addict? Huh.
What DID I know before reading this? That Robert Downey, Jr. plays Sherlock in the (very enjoyable) movies. Did the movies not explore the cocaine use or did I just miss that?
Sadly, for some reason, I didn’t envision RDJ when I was reading the Sherlock parts but I did see Jude Law as Watson.
I have never watched the BBC versions with the guys you see on the cover above.
I have recently seen pieces of The Hobbit starring Martin Freeman.
Because it was on HBO the other day.
I have only ever watched the other guy in one of the Star Trek movies.
I think he’s rather creepy looking.
I may never read another Sherlock Holmes book; it was only OK. I don’t think I am much of a mystery-thriller genre reader.
I thought this ended very abruptly.
I did love the chase scene with the dog.
RATING: Three slices of pie.
This concludes my attempt at a review.
