I feel quitr foolish in admitting that I am one of the stupid few who have only read this now. What this means is that I have also witnessedEobert Downy Junior as Holmes. Psonalky I don't think that is a problem. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle clealry wrote it with him in mind. Within the first few oages he explains that Holmes often used cocaine and that he was just as brooding as that movie portrays him. I loved this book and just downloaded the full series and will start from the very beginning.
