    I haven't gotten to that one yet (Also i'm a thousand years late to this lol) So far I really like the red headed league and the blue carbunicle carbuncle the one with the blue gem lol I just finished the speckled band. Reading ACD is taking me forever. It's a bit dense. I'm also just like "Let me go read-meh I'll start another one later."

    I read the stories in a random order. I've read Milverton. JOHNLOCK ALL OVER. I've read Reichenbach of course, and the Empty House. The first story I read was the Gloria Scott and the Multgrave Ritual. Then a Study in Scarlet and the Hound for school (hehehe). uhm... what's more? The mystery of the three students, though I didn't think that one was so exciting. No murders or such.

    The Mystery of the Cardboard Box XD hahahaha that just sounded epic.

    I've read A study in scarlet (It's AWESOME) A sign of four which was pretty good but honestly just couldn't hold up to ASiS and the majority of 'The adventures of sherlock holmes." I still have to finish those and read Sherlock's memoirs and Hounds Plus I think there's a second Vol. which has the empty house and other such things in it.

    I have one big book, a hardcover with 1200 pages. It's heavy and big and very annoying to read in. I actually wanted to buy the new ones with our favourite boys on the cover, but it would be €60 in total or more... so that is a little bit too much for a teenager to spend in one go. That was in Amsterdam, by the way. I live 200 km from Amsterdam.

    I gave up for now. Our library is pretty poor and I'm not going to read something that has smaller text than bible and in two columns! And it's definitely no no for translated ones too. I read the first page of the Hound and -please kill me now- I'm pretty sure the traslator had forgotten something...

    In which language was it translated?

    I read the Hound in English, more skimming/scanning though. It was pretty tough for someone who only had 5 of not intensive English classes

    I took five years of French...I didn't stick very well although I think I'd pick it up quickly if I went to France. Minimal spanish. To be fair I'm only 5' 1" so yeah I am a little American...Although my mom says I look like Benedict Cumberbatch so that's a plus. Only as Sherlock though...I have really dark hair, am skinny, and have pointy cheekbones, I dunno. I'm a minibatch xD

    The Consulting Detective:
    - Cabin pressure <3 But Milo sounds... errr French, not Finnish... Dang!
    - Would you love a monster man? x)
    - suomi - Finnish, Suomi - Finland, hooray for making things easier for everyone!
    Usually I get something like: Nokia, Santa or Nightwish. In UK some college kid asked me if Finland was near Persia... And someone once said: Oh, you are part of Russia. Hooray! It always makes my day.

    But yeah even Potters have better translation I think.

    NeigbourhoodBomber: I don't speak any fluently. Not even Finnish. It's a fact because I wasn't able to do all the Finnish tasks my immigrant youngsters did in school... Sad but true.

    Dutchies are well-known for their grand height. I believe we are (one of the) country with tallest people in the world

    as for me: I'm 180 cm, which is 5'11" Cumberbatch worthy, isn't it? Wink
    All my friends are smaller than me, so the knowledge that some well-known actors are taller than me, makes me happy.
    My favourite example is Tom Hiddleston. That guy is 187cm tall I believe! YESSSS

    As for small actors, like Martin Freeman (170) and Andrew Scott (173) I always imagine.where they would reach with me. Upto my chin I guess x)

    ^ That's hilarious. I always just imagined getting a crick in my neck from having to look up at Benedict so much. I think I'd just start talking to whatever part I came upto. Collarbone maybe?

    Oh no, no, no. Just look down. Better for the neck and finding an interesting pair of shoes is always a big plus. Wink

    Whoa! God dang!

    And yes, I do believe that would come across as inappropriate. But who cares, look where you want. People will get over it! Smile
