meilufay’s #CBR4 review #67 The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan-Doyle
The Sign of Four is the second Sherlock Holmes novel written by Arthur Conan-Doyle. I read this immediately after A Study in Scarlet and I found the mystery much less engaging than I did the first book. Whereas A Study in Scarlet felt very fresh, almost modern, The Sign of Four suffers from the fact that dozens of films and television shows have knocked off the Sherlock Holmes formula. I think if you enjoyed the first book, and you enjoy the genre, you will probably enjoy this book, but I didn’t love it.
