>The... What?

Second person - you did this, you did that, you experienced the other. The only things I've ever seen written primarily in the second person are particularly awful Internet porn stories and Charles Stross's Halting State, which is like Internet porn without the porn. :)

I don't recall a Sherlock Holmes story written in that format, but then I haven't read the canon in a while. Most Holmes stories are in the first person, but mainly telling about the actions of a third party (as opposed to, say, Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe novels, which are in the first person and mainly concerned with the narrating character's own doings).

seriously, Charley, I'm a fan, but WTF was that supposed to be?
