As a recent college graduate, at 45, I have spent the last five years reading various types of literature. This was my first foray into Holmes. I thoroughly enjoyed it. To think that such a work was first published 45 years ago and is still as interesting and enticing as anything written today! Everyone should take the time to read some mystery from the past. Entrigue without the grotesque. Loved it
