One of my favorite Sherlock Holmes adventure has to be The Red headed league can you image the cleverness of the criminal using such a method so thay can gain excess to his basement.How ingenouse these minds are to plot that is so thought out thay can wait till the right man comes along.

The author of Sherlock Holmes (can you believe I forgot his name?) is an AMAZING writer. I could never have thought up anything even half as interesting as all the books he has written!

Doyle's "Scandal in Bohemia" sort of resemble Poe's "The Purloined Letter". But so far, I like "Scandal in Bohemia" among the other Holmes stories^^

I personally liked the hound of the baskervilles, the last chapters were very suspenseful

There is not a Sherlock Holmes story I havent liked. He was the one who got me addicted to mysteries in the first place. The very first story I read was the Red Headed League and it still remains one of my favourite but the one I like the most is The Hound of Baskervilles. Reading that story still gives me the chills its superbly written

My favorite Sherlock Holmes story is "A Scandal in Bohemia" . I watched a movie called Young Sherlock Holmes which puts forth the life and adventures of needless to say "young" sherlock holmes and deals with the reason why he may feel the way he does about women. I would like to think he could have loved Irene Adler and have always thought that even before the latest movie came out. Which I enjoyed by the way.

Honestly speaking, I didn't know a single word about Mr.Holmes until last 3 months. Bt now apart from 1 novel and 4 short stories, I have fired out all the CANONS(I mean all the Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!)THEY ALL ARE BAMBLOOZING!!!! The PENTA FAVORITO (my favourit 5 stories) are-- A SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA, THE RED HEADED LEAGUE, A STUDY IN SCARLET, THE HOUND OF BASCARVILLE and last but not the least SIGN OF FOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!I AM STILL ADDICTED.......

Which story was it where both Holmes and Dr. Watson sneak into the antagonist's house to steal a document (love letter/blackmail), and then witness a murder of him, and then run away

Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise (Margaret Atwood)

That was Charles Augustus Milverton, first published in the April 1904 issue of The Strand and the 26 March issue of Collier's Weekly, published in the collection The Return of Sherlock Holmes in 1905.
