221B Baker Street

aku selalu jadi peminat kepada kisah misteri. even my great first love was to ''penyiasat remaja hajime kindaichi''. and all of them told stories about how great Sherlock Holmes are. it makes me excited to watch the movie in last December.

but,to tell the truth,i have never ever read any of Holmes's stories. i never knew who he was,how he uncover the truth,his style. nope. i didnt even know any of that. thats why i was kindda shock to read the review of Sherlock Holmes (2009) in Rotten Tomatoes . i didnt know that Robert Downey, Jr. didnt potray the real Holmes. i thought Downey was quite cool and eccentric,like Holmes.

so,i wonder,what kind of guy Sherlock is? how did Sir Arthur describe him?

and thats when i bought this.


mind you,Sir Arthur himself help two cases of injustice,using his own detective work to prove that they are innocent. great guy.

i thought i've told you dik-robert downey was great in that movie though he will never can be fit with the real sherlock holmes. bukan bayan pun ada ckp ke? guess our books of holmes dah kena buang by kak yu time pindah dr serdang dulu (well, she get rid almost more then 100 books!). yang pap beli dulu tu rasanya bought in London. huhu~
