Describe a book that you recently read
- You should say:
- What kind of books it was
- What it is about
- Where you read it
- And explain how you felt about it
Recently, I have had a lot of time off because of the new coronavirus. I read a book, the Hound of Baskervilles, which was written by Sherlock Holmes. In fact, I found it almost impossible to put down! The book tells a story about a famous detective who travels to the moors （荒野）to investigate （调查）a gigantic （巨大的）demon hound （猎犬）.The story is full of mystery and suspense （悬念） which is why I found it so hard to put down. The Sherlock Holmes novels are actually a large collection of stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes and Watson are famous detectives who protect England from evil. Most importantly, they protect people from the super-villain Dr Moriarti. The battles of wit between Sherlock and Moriarti are very interesting, because both of them are geniuses.
I really like mystery novels and detective novels as I like to try and solve the mystery myself before I finish the book. I have bought many different types of detective novels since I was young, among which the best one is the Sherlock Holmes series. Because the criminal is never the person who you think it is going to be. Therefore, the conclusion is always a surprise. So, I think that’s the reason why the Sherlock Holmes series are so popular.
最近我读过的书是《福尔摩斯与巴斯克维尔猎犬》。这本书讲述了一个著名的侦探到荒野去调查一只巨 大的恶魔猎犬的故事。福尔摩斯系列小说是阿瑟•柯南•道尔爵士创作的一套大型小说。福尔摩斯和 华生是著名的侦探，他们保护英国免遭罪恶。最重要的是，它们保护人们免受超级恶棍Moriarti博士 的伤害。夏洛克和莫里亚蒂之间的智慧之战非常有趣，因为他们都是天才。
我喜欢悬疑小说和侦探小说，因为我喜欢在看完之前尝试自己解谜。夏洛克•福尔摩斯的小说非常好， 因为罪犯从来都不是你想象中的那个人，总有出人意料的结局出现。所以这就是福尔摩斯系列如此著 名的原因。
