I love Sherlock Holmes.
I don't mean the television show, Sherlock, starring Bandersnatch and Bilbo. I don't mean those loud and obnoxious movies starring Iron Man and Gigolo Joe.
I mean the original works by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I remember the first time I read The Hound of the Baskervilles, reading every description carefully, trying to see if I could figure out the mystery. I remember pausing at various sections, and thinking through the chain of events, making deductions, puzzling through clues.
I wanted to solve the case before Holmes did.
Of course, I didn't.
But it was fun to try.
