A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
Read so many good reviews of this book that I finally decided to give it a read. The book ‘A Study in Scarlet’ by Arthur Conan Doyle belongs to the genre of detective fiction, a genre I haven’t explored much and mainly deals with the themes of love, hate, injustice, murder, and revenge. The book is divided into two parts. In the first part, the story is told in the first-person narrative through the character of Doctor John Watson who serves in the British army as a doctor, however, is sent back to England as a result of an injury during the Anglo-Afghan War to recuperate from the mental and physical injuries from the war. Dr. Watson tells the readers about how he meets the “eccentric” Mr. Sherlock Holmes whom he met through an old colleague for the purpose of sharing an apartment. Soon, Watson discovers that Holmes is not an ordinary person but is a consulting detective, who advises other detectives through his ability of deduction and analysis.
