Shelves: ar-conan-doyle, english-literature. In The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle Conan Doyle offers up a tale of goodwill that has a darker flipside. The goodwill sees Sherlock Holmes trying to return a hat and goose lost by someone on Christmas Day, but the story then deals with the theft of a precious stone, the Blue Carbuncle. As with so many of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories, the Granada TV series, with Jeremy Brett as Holmes, faithfully keeps to the original storyline for its adaptation of The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. I had called upon my friend Sherlock Holmes upon the second morning after Christmas, with the intention of wishing him the compliments of the season. He was lounging upon the sofa in a purple dressing-gown, a pipe-rack within his reach upon the right, and a pile of crumpled morning papers, evidently newly studied, near at hand. Beside the couch was a wooden chair, and on the angle of the back hung a very seedy and disreputable hard-felt hat, much the worse for wear, and cracked in several places.

Reviews about The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle (2):
Kagrel
I have not read this book yet, but I have listened to the Audible audiobook of the same title, which was great to listen to. I expect that this book will be equally delightful to read.

Cumming brings Holmes and Watson to life along with a slew of other characters. Set during Christmas, this tale chronicles a holiday goose, worn hat and priceless gem that come to Holmes by a most intriguing set of circumstances.

This is a quick listen, but that doesn't detract from the story's appeal. If you're a Holmes, you'll be pleased. If you're a Cummings fan, you'll be thrilled. I haven't enjoyed a narrated Doyle story this much since René Auberjonois read Mark Frost's The List of Seven.
