This I found very moving and sad, as all the names we know from Holmes stories are no longer with him, how he is a relic and a piece of history already for autograph-hunters in a new era. Of course, Holmes has no recollection of the meeting but finesses it nicely. I hope I will not be disappointed by the movie. Yes, how many ears must one man have Before he can hear people cry? Namun, karena tak banyak cerita yang mampu menyihir ratusan juta penggemar bahkan menjadi ikon budaya, sepertinya hal itu tak terlalu menjadi masalah. We are the sum total of others' descriptions of us, and Holmes's meek revisions of his own legend -- as he tells everyone he meets, he never wore that deerstalker hat -- only confirm how powerfully he is in thrall to other people's accounts. Once home, he seeks out young Roger, the housekeeper's son. Holmes starring wonderful actor Ian McKellen, I put it on my must-see list immediately.

Well, a number of different things, really. All three stories are intertwined and bittersweet. For almost two months, he had been away, traveling by military train across India, by Royal Navy ship to Australia, and then finally setting foot on the occupied shores of postwar Japan. It is 1947, and the long-retired Holmes, now 93, lives in a remote Sussex farmhouse, where his memories and intellect begin to go adrift. Guess I'll find out soon. Holmes starring Ian McKellen and Laura Linney and directed by Bill Condon. Review: Long after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle allowed him to retire to Sussex to take up beekeeping, there seems to be no end of enthusiasm for imagined versions of the life of Sherlock Holmes.

He is kept company by his housekeeper and her 14-year old son Roger, who Holmes has taken on as a sort-of beekeeping apprentice. We can all learn from their diligence and steadfastness. But just not all of the time. Fusce sed nibh eu odio posuere semper. Now I retain only that which is necessary. Not long afterward, I discovered this book, which is the basis for the movie - and in my rarely broken rule of book before movie, I got my hands on a copy.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist Before it's washed to the sea? Critics called it the dumbest play in history. How do you arrive at it? Si bien las partes que transcurren en Jap贸n, parecen un poco de relleno, y no sucede nada tan importante en ellas y adem谩s son bastantes considerando que el libro no es muy largo el libro es bello y emocionante para aquellos que amamos al personaje. This subtle and wise work is more than just a reimagining of a classic character. Se trata de un caso que le dej贸 un huella muy profunda. I've seen some reviews suggest that this is about Holmes's regret over missing romance, which put me off a bit, but that's not what I took from this novel.

Porque en la pel铆cula Ian muestra un lado a煤n m谩s humano en Sherlock que me conmovi贸 hasta la m茅dula, cosa que el libro no logr贸 del todo. Eso me gust贸, porque hasta el grand铆simo Sherlock Holmes al final es humano. It is that of a Mrs. A new genre I think I like though, fictional heroes in old age. In his journal writings, Holmes takes pains to dispel what he believes to be myths about himself largely conceived, he says, in Watson's writings of their adventures. Once again, if it is not mystery or detective fiction that attracts you to this book, you should be satisfied with it. Have you ever met someone or gotten to know them and wish that you had known them in their early life.
