A Study in Scarlet


Uno studio in rosso è il romanzo che segna l’esordio di Sherlock Holmes, l’investigatore più amato e imitato di tutti i tempi. Attraverso il racconto del dottor Watson, suo inseparabile socio e amico, vede la luce l’infallibile detective, con la sua intelligenza fulminea e gli straordinari metodi di indagine. Un uomo capace di scovare una verità dove gli altri vedono una bugia, una soluzione lampante in un mistero che per tutti è tremendamente ingarbugliato. La scienza della deduzione e il rigore di una razionalità inflessibile hanno fatto della creatura di Doyle il paradigma dell’investigatore letterario, un mito che sembra destinato a non tramontare mai: lo testimoniano le recenti trasposizioni cinematografiche per la regia di Guy Ritchie (con Robert Downey Jr. nei panni del protagonista) e le fortunate serie TV ispirate al suo personaggio.

    This is an underwhelming debut for one of literature’s most famous characters. Doyle’s Sherlock is in the nascent stage here and isn’t the fully fleshed out character, readers came to know. The ...
