Good Essays
The Adventure of the speckled band was one of the many stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote with Sherlock Holmes in it. This story is about the twin sister of Helen Stoner, which was Julia that died mysteriously and there is Sherlock Holmes who is the one who is going to find the mystery with his friend Watson. Moreover the person that asks for help from that great and famous detective is Helen. Julia died in a bedroom that now her sister is going to live in.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in my opinion is one of the greatest writers of all time no one can copy him because what he did with Sherlock Holmes is unique and that is why it is so special. Also Sherlock would not be anything without Conan Doyle.
The Adventure of the Speckled Band was one story that I liked a lot but it was too obvious to find who the murderer of Julia was. Although I liked it a lot and saw a clip from the internet like a movie of the book.
The Boscombe Valley Mystery was my favorite from these 2 stories because there was too much mystery and also some information were revealed when John Turner confessed. Although Holmes did not know so many information he deducted the crime.
Lastly the mystery in the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle needs to be included because it makes the reader want to read more when they are “in” the book.
