    Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel is utterly unimpressive. In short, the book starts like this:[image error]and mid-way turns into this:And I am not even joking.

    SO I DID IT. CONGRATULATE ME. I read an adult book and a classic and I survived!! *flings confetti over self* Okay, except that actually I listened to an audio and I'm 100% sure the audio is the only reason I survived it, because, gawsh...while it's incredibly interesting, it's written so incredibly...
