When the Countess of Morcar’s priceless blue carbuncle is stolen, a reformed thief is charged with the crime. But a strange thing happens. Trivial is what Sherlock Holmes calls it. He’s studying an old hat when Dr. Watson visits to wish him “The compliments of the season.” Holmes tells Watson about Commissionaire Peterson’s report of seeing a little knot of roughs assault a man carrying a Christmas goose home for the family. They all ran, leaving both the goose and the hat. No one could locate the man, Henry Baker, whose name was tagged to the goose so Peterson took possession.
To be fully honest here this story was a little bit weak but let me explain why I say so.
The plot here was a little bit off and weak in my opinion. It for sure wasn’t one of the best Sherlock Holmes stories but it still bring joy and entertaining while reading it. But after reading it and thinking about this story I gotta say that it could have been better than it actually was.
The characters here are okay but when it comes to Sherlock Holmes and doctor Watson they are an amazing due and I loved they both because they have something in them which makes us relate to them.
The writing style here was okay but I think that sir Arthur Conan Doyle could have done better in this book.
