Ever since I was a kid, I always liked Sherlock Holmes. I don't know how it started, but I loved him. The strange thing is is that I never actually read any of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories.
As I grew up, I watched Robert Downey Jr.'s first movie as Holmes (haven't seen the second one yet). Also, I am in love with BBC's Sherlock, and think he is the definitive modern Sherlock Holmes. And of course, I absolutely adored House, and for those of you who don't know, the title character, Greg House, was based on Sherlock Holmes (Holmes...House...get it? ).
I've also loved mystery novels, and games as well, such as L.A. Noire. After I saw that a new game featuring your favorite detective would be coming out (Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments), I was intrigued to say the least, and it got me thinking. As many of you may know, I am a huge William Shakespeare fan, and I have discovered that the same company (Barnes & Noble) that made The Complete Works of William Shakespeare" also made "The Complete Sherlock Holmes". That immediately piqued my interest, and now I am happily awaiting to get my grubby little paws on it.
Anyway, have any of you guys read any Sherlock Holmes stories, and if so, how did you like them? Also, what adaptations have you guys enjoyed?
