A New Look at Sherlock Holmes

One of the great things about reading Sherlock Holmes again as an adult is seeing the stories in a whole new way.
It is sensational to read a book that gives a different view of independence. There are a few characters in books that I liked as a child and still like as an adult. One of those characters is Sherlock Holmes. When I was a child, Holmes seemed smart, interesting and weird. As an adult, I see Holmes as a one of a kind, smart, interesting and weird character. I interpret Holmes as an independent figure who says what he means, means what he says. I  like the fact that he does not bow to worldly conventions. There is an interesting independent edge that I see in the character of Sherlock Holmes.

Some will argue that Holmes is a know-it-all, self-centered, drug addict. I would agree with that assessment. At the same time, Holmes was an independent person. I like the way Holmes didn’t depend upon conventional wisdom, traditional methods or what was expected. Holmes used his intelligence and creativity to find answers to the problems he encountered. He invented scientific tests and potions never seen before in order to solve mysteries. Holmes was an independent thinker. Not only was Holmes an independent thinker, his bad habits, conceit, and one track mind caused him to be alone and physically independent.
