A Case of Identity - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Category: Books

Genre: Mystery

Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Overview and Review of A Case of Identity from the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

My first (after reading two novels of his, and more than 5 stories from him) to figure out the mystery before the end of the story.

Of course, since the title's got something to do with "identity" I figured out it has something to do with a person's identity. I put two and two together like what Holmes would if he was a reader.. and Ta-Da.... I did not know I had a Sherlock Holmes complex within me. Muwahaha. Kidding!

A woman named Mary Sutherland asked Holmes to find out the whereabouts of Mr. Hosmer Angel who mysteriously disappeared. And as she went on and narrated the whole peculiar story to Holmes and Dr. Watson, when Mr. Hosmer disappeared.... I figured it was tooo----tttt.

I can't burst the bubble and reveal it all.... right? This is a review and not a freakin spoiler... although I failed to do it in my Cold Sea Rising. Sorry, I was just soo excited there.

Anyway, it's not long. It's pretty short, just like the rest of the stories under the "Adventures of the Sherlock Holmes." It would take you 30 minutes tops. or maybe 25 or 15. Ahh whatever. Just, read it. Hehe.

tina, ask ko lang kung yan ba yung talagang author ng sherlock holmes? gusto ko kasi makabasa ng mga novels about sherlock. may nakita ako sa National bookstore, parang yung oldies yung design ng cover niya, tas parang compilation sya nga mga cases niya. hindi ko napansin yung author e. ask ko lang kung yung mga ganung klaseng novels kaya ni sherlock e easy read? hindi yung katulad ng parang hamlet? hehehe.
