In every cases, as he proofs that he’s amazing, Sherlock Holmes shows an incredible logical reasoning and observing, furthermore remarkable ability in disguise and in use of forensic science skill.

My thoughts about Sherlock Holmes:
I first met Sherlock Holmes through a comic book when I was a child, and his first impression to me was ‘interesting‘. In the book, he was very intelligent and amazing at solving the mysterious cases and he was also strange as much as his cases to me, which made me want to know more about him like how does he think and see things in his perspectives. I’m very expected to read about Sherlock Holmes novel written by Conan Doyle as I never read one before, I’m curious about the differences of Sherlock Holmes between novel version and TV series version.
Arthur Conan Doyle:
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, full name Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was born on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, United Kingdom and died of heart attack on 7 July 1930. During his lifetime, Conan Doyle trained as a doctor and got his degree from Edinburgh University on 1881. He also worked as surgeon and medical officer for a few years travelling between Liverpool and West Africa. Then he settled down in Portsmouth on the English South coast and spent his time for medicine and writing.
Conan Doyle created Sherlock Holmes, the best known detective character today through a novel ‘A Study In Scarlet’, published in ‘Beeton’s Christmas Annual’ on 1887. Sherlock Holmes was a big hit when he first came out. Due to his success, Conan Doyle continued to write several stories involving him. However on 1893, Conan Doyle who was fed up with Sherlock Holmes, eventually killed Sherlock off. Then, Conan Doyle started to writee several different kinds of novels such as ‘The Lost World’ but they weren’t successful.
