A Scandal in Bohemia - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
A review and overview of A Scandal in Bohemia from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
According to Dr. Watson who just got married with Miss Morstan, Holmes calls someone "The Woman" and her name was Irene Adler. And this "A Scandal in Bohemia" is a story all about her.
In the "A Scandal in Bohemia", there were no crimes committed whatsoever, it was just a King from Bohemia who asked Holmes to recover a might be scandalous picture in the future from Irene Adler.
For me, I think this story is a balance to all Sherlock Holmes stories. Since, here Sherlock gets outwitted by a woman.. and that bright as he is he can still be outwitted... and by a woman at that. Hehe. :)
Nice story... :P Very cunning woman that Irene Adler.
