Sherlock: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes | Arthur Conan Doyle
131 posts | 111 read | 2 reading | 27 to read
The hit BBC series Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, offers a fresh, contemporary take on the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and has helped introduce a whole new generation of fans to the legendary detective. This TV tie-in edition to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's second collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories, which was first published in 1894, includes the infamous 'The Final Problem'. It is one of Conan Doyle's favourite Sherlock tales and the detective's deadliest challenge. This is the ultimate thriller, in which Sherlock meets his intellectual match: the criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty. As Moriarty pushes Sherlock to his intellectual limits, this game of cat and mouse will test not only their wits but their mortality.

Oh @DaveGreen7777 — how do I pick just one favorite villain?!? Here a just 4 of my faves. We can‘t have epic heroes with an equally epic adversary.

I would love to teach a course on the other side of the story. Assigned reading would be things like Wizard of Oz versus Wicked—who‘s the real “villain”? Because each one of the so-called villains has their own story. And one is never a villain in one‘s own story.

#TheWorldNeedsAVillain

Macker11 I love that Ms. Trunchbull is an option. 6mo
DaveGreen7777 I love this post, Lynn! And I think that‘s a wonderful idea to compare stories from the villain‘s point of view. It would be interesting, since most villains actually see themselves as the hero (although probably not Jim Moriarty, I think he takes great pride in being a true villain)! Thanks for participating in the giveaway! 😊 6mo
wanderinglynn @Macker11 She‘s an awesome “villain”! 6mo

wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 In the most recent adaptation (with the awesome Andrew Scott as Moriarty), he claims to be more bored than anything. And it seems it‘s more ego that true villain—just trying to prove he‘s the smartest kid on the block. 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 Also, I‘d love to bring out their backstories to know what happened that changed their path. Wicked and the newerish Maleficent movie have both sought to bring the backstories to light. 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 I also didn‘t even start talking about all the comic villains I love, like Magneto. Talk about an awesome backstory that justifies his current actions. 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn I so agree with you about Andrew Scott‘s portrayal, he‘s mesmerizing as Jim Moriarty! 😀 Interestingly enough, his Moriarty even acknowledged he was a villain, when he told Sherlock, “Every fairy tale needs a good old-fashioned villain”. 😈 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn Also, Magneto is one of my favorite comic book villains because of his compelling backstory and motivation. Other villains may be in it for the power or the money, but Magneto really thinks he‘s a necessary evil, “Get the humans before they get us!” 😱 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 That‘s right—he did say that. But do you really think he sees himself that way? Or was Moriarty playing on Sherlock‘s view of Sherlock as the hero? 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 Magneto! 🙌🏻 6mo
DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn Hmmm... that‘s an excellent question about what Moriarty may have really meant! 🤔 Come to think of it, he may even have been referring to what he was about to do to Sherlock, turn public opinion against Sherlock by painting him out to be a fraud and the true villain! 😱 6mo
wanderinglynn @DaveGreen7777 See?!? Wouldn‘t this make an awesome college course? It would require critical thinking and seeing the other side of the coin. 😉 6mo
Michollio LOVE Andrew Scott as Moriarty. He has one of my favorite lines 6mo
wanderinglynn @Michollio He‘s fabulous. I mean the whole cast is great, but he really makes it. What‘s the line? 6mo
Michollio "And honey you should see me in a crown." 6mo
AbigailDays Backgrounds to all the famous villains would make awesome reading! Is there anything like a list of book pairs, like the Wizard of Oz and Wicked? 6mo
wanderinglynn @Michollio That is a most excellent line! 👍🏻 6mo
wanderinglynn @AbigailDays I don‘t know. That would be a good list to make if there isn‘t one. 👍🏻 6mo

Both "Adventures" and "Memoirs" are short story collections featuring the timeless tales of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. In "Adventures," we get a glimpse of "that woman," Irene Adler in the very first short, "A Scandal in Bohemia." ?

But "Memoirs" promises Professor Moriarty!

Thanks to Steve Donoghue on Booktube, I picked up my first Sherlock Holmes story at the end of last year. And ever since then I have kept coming back to these fun stories.
Thanks to #WhoDunItAThon I slotted The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes into my January TBR and have loved reading through the 11 cases.
I wasn‘t prepared for the ending of The Final Problem...but that didn‘t spoil my experience at all.

#litsyclassics #villain @Sarah83 @Bambolina_81

The evil mastermind on the right is Professor James Moriarty. First introduced in The Adventure of the Final Problem and hardly ever mentioned after, he's Sherlock Holmes' dark mirror. Even people who have never read the stories or seen an adaptation, have heard of him. That's why he's my pick for today.

Sherlock Holmes certainly knew his enemy and they finally came to meet at the Reichenbach Falls. The short story of this infamous meeting can be found entitled The Final Problem in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes.

BookHoarder32 Love ❤️❤️❤️ the hat!! 2y
jackilynn @BookHoarder32 It is actually a headband. It is one of my favorites though lol 2y
BookHoarder32 @jackilynn whoops 😊 still super cute! 2y
jackilynn @BookHoarder32 No worries. I can see how it could easily be mistaken for a hat. Hat or headband either way it would still be super cute & I would still proudly wear it lol 2y

🐶Haven't read HP, but seen a few movies and I like it better then Twilight, so HP.
🐶BBC Sherlock hands down.. Come on..it is Benedict Cumberbatch, who wouldn't agree?!?
🐶Doctor #9 -played by Christopher Eccleston
🐶Don't care.
🐶Only read half of the series and it was pretty good ( not a big series fan.. Perfer standalone) .. But I would say.. Maximum Ride

If I could dive into a book, I would chose the Victorian London in which Sherlock Holmes' stories take place. 😍

BarbaraTheBibliophage Yes! But I'd sure miss my modern conveniences. 👏🏻👏🏻 2y
Sarah83 @BarbaraTheBibliophage Of course you would. But without them, there would be less stress in our world. 🤗 2y

Moony That's a good choice. Sometimes I play the pen&paper "Private Eye" and get a little feeling of the victorian time. 2y
Sarah83 @Moony Don't know that. What is it? 2y
Moony @Sarah83 It's a roleplaying game. The players are detectives and have to solve quests. I can explain more (in german) when you have questions about it. 2y
Sarah83 @Moony Dann fang mal an. 😍😍😍 2y
