First Date With Mr. Holmes

Terdesak oleh rasa penasaran dan juga rasa ngga mau kudet karena ngga ngerti kisahnya Sherlock Holmes, akhirnya saya mengambil momen Sherlock Holmes Read Along untuk berkenalan. Tapi kemudian ada masalah, bagaimana saya akan baca kisahnya kalau saya engga punya bukunya? Pinjem? Have no time for that. Untunglah Sherlock Holmes sudah masuk kategori klasik yang bukunya bisa diambil gratis. So, i’ve collected the ebook. The english version.

But my english wasn’t good enough to understand the writing. Should i stop there? Thank God i can’t stop myself. Lalu saya melakukan pencarian, ada ngga ya ebook Sherlock Holmes berbahasa indonesia yang bisa diunduh secara gratis? Ada. Lewat sherlocked.org saya berusaha untuk baca online. Sayangnya itu ngga efisien. Sampai akhirnya saya menemukan bahwa ada aplikasi android yang mengemas serial Sherlock Holmes dalam bahasa indonesia. How Lucky! There, my date begins. Akhirnyaa😄

So, A Study In Scarlet atau Penelusuran Benang Merah adalah novel pembuka serial Sherlock Holmes yang menurut saya termasuk ringan untuk dibaca. Tapi, Penelusuran Benang Merah sekaligus adalah pembuka yang perfect. Karena novel ini berhasil menghasilkan ketertarikan terhadap sosok Sherlock Holmes yang special dan ‘rare’. Novel ini meninggalkan rasa ketidakpuasan, in a good way that i mean this novel makes you crave for more. Dont you agree?

In my case, i crave for a visualisation. I should confess that i’m not good with details, thats why i avoid mystery/detective stories. So then, i feel the urge to watch the adaptation. That’s the next thing i did after finishing the book: watch the pilot episode of Sherlock Season 1 that casted Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. You’d know what i’ve feel after that: Excited!! Mr. Cumberbatch really put a good work in creating the live version of Sherlock. Also, i can’t not to fall for Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson. You see, i always fancy the supporting character more than the hero. And he’s really adorable, isn’t he?😉

I could tell you that i have a good time in (kind of) first date with Sherlock. But as much as i want to continue myself drowning in Sherlock’s stories, i can’t. Not this time around when its hard enough for me dealing with a serious book slump (for real). I hope i have a good spare time to read and watch Sherlock Holmes series later.
