Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.


Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.

The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1

The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 1 - Charlton Griffin,  Arthur Conan Doyle First of all, Charlton Griffin does a great job as narrator, although he does the thing that many male narrators do and makes all women sound simpering and/or wimpy. More generally speaking, I hadn't read any Sherlock in quite a while and parts of it seem a bit dated (especially the racism, most obvious in Sign of Four) but I still totally get why my teenaged self was so in love with Holmes, Watson and their adventures!
