His series was the inspiration behind all these shows. His detective stories are very famous and a lot of kids have grown up reading his books. If you haven’t read the books yet, you are in for a treat. Here is a cheat sheet for the must-read stories from Doyle’s fantastic collection of works and Sherlock Holmes Books:
If you want to acquaint yourself with Sherlock Holmes and his partner-in-crime-solving, Dr. John Watson, you should really start at the beginning. Doyle’s characters are still taking shape in this first tale, but it’s truly essential to set up the rest of the stories. In it, we learn how the pair came to meet and work together, and are introduced to Sherlock’s idiosyncratic and ingenious ways.
“The Sign of Four” explains how Watson came to be married: a key point in the relationship between the two men. Watson as the domesticated man is a stark contrast to Holmes’s independent and disconnected nature, and is often depicted in — and at the core of — various adaptations of Doyle’s work.
