A Scandal in Bohemia by Arthur Conan Doyle


A Scandal in Bohemia (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #1)A Scandal in Bohemia by Arthur Conan Doyle

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I thought that story was going to be longer, or was it that I simply consumed it quickly? It didn’t take much for a woman to outsmart Holmes in the end. Probably because the 19th century attitude gave women absolutely no credit for owning a brain. More fool them!

It shows how much potential this idea had even back then, that “The Woman” and her clever and wily ways can best even the greatest detective. Irene Adler was simply defending her own interests, and protecting herself (and the King of Bohemia) from any future scandal. She knew the value of the item she held, and will continue to keep her secret whilst starting a new life elsewhere.
