7 books finished in 2015: The Return of Sherlock Holmes

7 books finished in 2015

Sherlock is not dead!
So many mysteries solved.
Watson asked to hush.

I’m so intrigued by this serialized storytelling, and the ways it relates to television shows today. I can think of so many shows that close a season not knowing whether they’ll get to return – so there are false endings and momentary resolutions that keep us wanting more. That’s the way it feels with these Sherlock mysteries – constantly referencing Sherlock’s retirement or his requests that Watson stop sharing stories.

  1. Yes, yes! So interesting to think of the serial book (Dickens, too) in light of T.V. shows – especially the ones with long arcs, like LOST and Battlestar and Parenthood (and and and).

    And I’ll say it again: the return of the haiku makes me so happy.
