London, Ontario (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
Sherlock Holmes fans can now star in personalized mystery books and solve twelve famously perplexing cases by selecting the names and features for several characters in this special personalized edition of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mystery novel.
This influential 1893 compilation contains suspenseful tales of family secrets, dastardly conspiracies and international intrigue. And now readers can put themselves into five roles, including world-renowned sleuth Sherlock Holmes, his loyal friend (and the book’s narrator) Dr. John Watson, and even notorious vixen Irene Adler. “Everyone who loves mysteries knows Sherlock Holmes,” commented Mike Pocock, founder of Book By You®. “Lately he’s won new fans thanks to the hugely popular Robert Downey, Jr. film and the recent modern BBC adaptation seen in the U.S. on Masterpiece. Our new version is both respectful of the classic while offering mystery-lovers a new way to delve into the Sherlockian world. We anticipate that these personalized Sherlock Holmes books will be a best seller.”
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes joins the line of Classic Book By You® personalized novels, including Gaston Leroux’s gothic masterpiece The Phantom of the Opera, Jane Austen’s romantic Pride and Prejudice, the immortal Dracula by Bram Stoker, and the thrilling coming-of-age pirate novel Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. Several more will soon join these on the virtual shelves. Readers can include friends, relatives, co-workers or Hollywood stars in their very own personalized editions of these novels. In many cases the characters' hair colors and eye colors can also be included, resulting in thousands of changes in each book.
