56 Sherlock Holmes stories in 56 days – some early thoughts

We’re nearly two weeks into the challenge and it really is proving just that, writes Charlotte Anne Walters.

Reading a story and writing a blog every day while trying to hold down a full-time job, do the housework, trying to throw off a cold and cater to the needs of the family is stretching me pretty thinly.

But at the same time it’s been good fun and has shown that Holmes fans certainly have their favourite (or lesser favourites) from Conan Doyle’s canon.

Top of the pile – in terms of views – so far is the Beryl Coronet, closely followed by The Man with the Twisted Lip, The Boscombe Valley Mystery, A Case of Identity and The Adventure of the Speckled Band.

The least favourite story (or at least my thoughts on it) so far is The Engineer’s Thumb with Silver Blaze (my personal favourite of the ones that have been reviewd so far) and The Noble Batchelor not far behind.

A Scandal in Bohemia gets plenty of traffic, largely because there seem to be a lot of people who search for Irene Adler through Google and other search engines.

By my reckoning, after today’s blog (The Yellow Face) we’ll be a quarter of the way through. Please let me know what you think by using the Leave A Comment facility at the end of this post.
