Review: The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #7) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #7)The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle’ is the seventh short story in ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ novel.
It follows the stealing of a priceless blue carbuncle belonging to the Countess of Morcar and the charging of a crime to a reformed thief.
To be honest, I am growing a little tired of the structure which creates these short stories. It always starts with Watson visiting or meeting Sherlock. Sherlock then telling his latest problem and asking Watson to aid him. Sherlock continues to spew random deduction he has made which grow all the more outrageous as the short stories progress. Sherlock then goes about confirming everything in a hidden manner and then reveals the culprit. End of short story.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing ‘The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle’.
