Book Review: A Study in Scarlet

A Study in Scarlet (Sherlock Holmes, #1)A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have to say, I got really confused by this book, although that’s probably my own fault. I’m going to try and explain why I was confused without giving away anything.

A Study in Scarlet starts out rather obviously as a Sherlock Holmes mystery, but Part II begins in the Old West. It turns out that Part II provides the back-story for the crime and the criminal’s motive. I didn’t realize that, though, and thought it was a separate story. The Old West sections were well written, but it’s a subject that interests me less.
