My After Reading Opinion (May 28, 2023):- Mr. Sherlock Holmes, a consulting detective, is known for his proficiency with sharp observation, deduction, forensic science and logical reasoning. Holmes's intellectual genius characteristic fascinates millions of readers all over the world, including me, since 1887. He solves almost any investigating cases for a wide variety of clients like no one ever did before.
“The Name Is Sherlock Holmes, and the Address Is 221B Baker Street”. ❤️
And of course, the Scottish writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle proved his genius writing skill when he created this fictional character "Sherlock Holmes".
And our own famous Bengali Private Investigator Feluda's (Sherlock Holmes of Bengal) writer Satyajit Ray wrote his own detective series inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's work.
Detective stories has always been one of my favourite genre. I spend most of my teenage dreaming about being a detective and solving crime mysteries just like Holmes, Feluda, Byomkesh and live the advantageous, thriller life.
But when I grown up, I changed my mind. I let my imagination live deep into my imagination. Nah! always running after dangerous criminals, and dealing with bad guys is not my type of job. In reality, I am a bit more coward dump.😁 Instead of catching a criminal, I might get dead by that bad guy sooner or later.😜
So why did I pick that book to read? To be a detective like Holmes in near future? Of course not. Even the author didn't write this book to teach you how to be a good detective.
Holmes was a genius in his field no double. He had many powerful characteristics that made him so successful in his career. He could solve a complicated mystery within a fraction of a second. His sharp observation ability, problem solving skills, quick decision making and logical reasoning helped him to come up with the correct conclusion every time. Also he was a very intelligent and knowledgeable person with expertise in many fields.
We can learn from him and adopt some of his skills. We can apply them in our daily life to make our life much easier.
We will be able to see the world in a different perspective. The way he observe, the way he think, the way he take decision and execute his action are powerful skills to learn. Those life hacks will increase our ability to handle our problems and to solve them easily and effectively.
