From Library Staff
By all means, read Doyle's original stories and watch Jeremy Brett's take on the 19th-century Great Detective, but this modern imagining is original, clever... and has Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into the Darkness) and Martin Freeman (Life on Mars), or, for Tolkien fans, Smaug and Bilbo.

Sherlock Holmes (to Watson, Lestrade, & Anderson, who are collectively dumbfounded after Holmes' rapid-fire systematic mystery explanation): "Look at you lot -- you're all so vacant. Is it nice not being me? It must be so relaxing."
