    The Final Problem is the final short story in The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes collection The ever loyal Dr Watson takes his pen in hand heavy hearted to tell the story of the escalating conflict between Sherlock Holmes and his nemesis Professor Moriarty a criminal mastermind that Sherlock is determined to bring to justice along with all of his criminal associates Says SherlockHe is a genius a philosopher an abstract thinker He sits motionless like a spider in the centre of its web but that web has a thousand radiations and he knows well every uiver of each of themSo Sherlock asks Dr Watson to join him on a trip to Europe to keep Sherlock away from Moriarty who’s determined to kill Sherlock until the trap Sherlock and the London police have set up for Moriarty has time to snap closed Moriarty is a little too smart however and the journey turns into a cat and mouse chase But who is the cat and who is the mouse?view spoilerThis tale is also famous because it's the one where the author killed off Sherlock Holmes or at least I'm fairly certain that was his intent at the time But the public was having none of that and Doyle unbent and wrote several Sherlock Holmes stories later including the unforgettable The Hound of the Baskervilles hide spoiler

    This was a very strong story up to the last couple pages when suddenly the end Not using an exclamation point even because it was so anticlimactic Intellectually and emotionally unsatisfying

    This is without a doubt the best Sherlock Holmes short story I have read so far I would have given it 5 stars if I had read the story before watching the BBC version but I'm sorry to say that I haven'tMoriarty in the originalsMoriarty in the BBC seriesBesides the fact that the original Moriarty is not half as attractive as the modern one he was overall uite disappointing He lacked character depth and that psychotic weirdness that was so evident and intriguing in the BBC version The Adventure of the Final Problem would probably have been much better if ait was a novel instead of a short story maybe then there could have been character depth and bWatson had shown of his feelings about what was going on So overall the story was pretty good but this is probably the only time that I can say I liked an adaptation than the original

    I thought I knew the basic premise of this story when I started it but it turns out I knew the whole thing This incredibly slim volume is considered the final of only four novels in the Sherlock Holmes series There are many additional short stories Written from Watson’s point of view we see an increasingly paranoid Sherlock taking extreme measures to escape his arch nemesis Dr Moriarty The pair one an unconventional brilliant detective the other a criminal mastermind are perfectly matched Sherlock has finally found his intellectual eual; unfortunately they are pitted against one another You can’t help but hear the admiration in Sherlock’s voice as he describes the villains’ evil empire Here’s a bit about Moriarty in Sherlock’s own words“He is the Napoleon of crime Watson He is the organizer of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city He is a genius a philosopher an abstract thinker He has a brain of the first order He sits motionless like a spider in the center of its web but that web has a thousand radiations and he knows well every uiver of each of them He does little himself He only plans”BOTTOM LINE A worthy conclusion to Sherlock’s story I only wish it had been longer I would still recommend The Sign of Four as the best place to start if you’re new to Sherlock
