I hadn’t read many of the Sherlock Holmes books, so this one was new to me. I hadn’t realized that Watson was narrating much of it and that Holmes was such a minor part of it.
I rated it low because the book seemed to drag on and was summarized in the final chapter. I probably would have gotten just as much out of reading just the final chapter as I did reading the whole book.
The story was interesting and pretty much held up over time, but I still wasn’t a big fan.
