Sherlock Holmes in A Study in Scarlet

Presenting Sherlock Holmes in A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle & Gris Grimly (Illustrator).

Here is the summary of the book:

A classic mystery by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; the first in the Sherlock Holmes series. See how Holmes and Watson met for the first time. A baffling murder with puzzling clues and evil villains takes place and the cocaine-addicted, cold and quirky detective, with his razor-sharp deductive mind and obsessive attention to detail, is on the case. Told from the journals of his faithful companion, Dr. John Watson, join us for a trip to 221B Baker Street and the beginning of the legend of Sherlock Holmes.

Who doesn't know Sherlock Holmes! Everyone knows who he is and his evergreen side-kick Dr. Watson. Scintillating, mind-boggling, hair-raising adventures of the duo from the pen of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. And not a media or print in the world that hadn't emulated their adventures. Be it graphic novels, re-tellings, movies or tv shows/ Notably the Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law starrer 'Sherlock Holmes' movies and the Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman starrer BBC mini-series 'Sherlock'.

Thus in all of its maiden glory, 'Sherlock Holmes in A Study in Scarlet' is the latest offering in the category. An illustrated representation. Yo go alongwith the story and enjoying it in a new way. By Gris Grimly, known for his 'dark whimsical art'. Of course there is nothing to note about the story in particular. Holmes & Dr. Watson's maiden voyage, A Study in Scarlet was how they began.

And Gris Grimly brought new light to this adventure with his imagery. Its beautiful, its elegant, its imaginative but most of all its different and I liked every part of it. I read the e-arc version acquired through edelweiss, so imagine how beautiful it would be in print. So guys, I highly recommend, you won't be disappointed. Go for it.
