"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

“The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” in (very brief) Review

Posted in Stuff I'm Reading by matt on Sunday, January 3, 2010

The holidays bring spare time, and spare time means reading. And how I’ve missed it! Why didn’t anyone tell me it’s hard to find time to read once you’re married?

Not complaining, though, just adjusting.

Anyway, my in-laws got me a slick new Amazon Kindle for Christmas, so I christened it by reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes over New Years. The book, along with thousands of others, was free online since it’s public domain. Good thing most of my favorites have been dead for a long time!

It was light and a quick read, but I loved it! Where was this book all my childhood?! Stroking chins, smoking pipes, and being an all around mystery-solving wizard – I know who I’m being for 2010 Halloween baby!

    Matt – we went to the new Sherlock Holmes movie that is out. A current update on an old classic. Very well done. Can’t wait for the next release. Robert Downey Jr. did a great job. I think you will enjoy the movie. Glad you are enjoying the Kindle. Can’t wait for the update on your recent trip.

      Cayla and I are planning to go see the film sometime this weekend. Glad to get two trustworthy recommendations on it.
