I’m a big Sherlock fan! I love the BBC series with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, but I’ve been wanting to read the stories for so long now. I’ve actually got a book with all of the Sherlock Holmes stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in them and I’m currently reading the first one, A study in scarlet, from which I’ll post a review on Just my humble books tomorrow!
However, I have also got this book with all these Sherlock puzzles. I thought it would be fun to share one with you all and then I’ll post the answer to the puzzle next week!
Here it is:
The first curiosity
Holmes has on occasion extolled the virtues of absurdity as a way of breaking free of the confines of regimented thinking. “Watson,” he told me once, “the ridiculous is one of the best methods to shatter the iron confines of pedestrian thought.”
With that in mind, he engaged in a programme of springing baffling and sometimes ludicrous problems on me at moments when I least expected them.
The first caught me completely unawares.
“I have considered commissioning a house with windows facing south on all four sides,” Holmes declared, to my amazement. “Do you think this is a good idea?”
Good luck everybody and have a nice day!
