Arthur Conan Doyle
A Scandal in Bohemia / Un scandale en Bohême
Read this classic detective story in French and English. “A Scandal in Bohemia” follows Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson as the former takes on both a crime case and—in a unique twist—a love interest. Odéon Bilingue makes reading in two languages fun and simple. All paragraphs are numbered and appropriately placed side-by-side. Save for a few exceptions, all paragraphs begin and end on the same page, thus eliminating unnecessary page-flipping.
Odéon Livre brings French-language literature to an American audience. While many of our featured works have been translated into English, we focus exclusively on texts’ native versions. Plots and characters can indeed be translated, but even the most faithful interpretation will lack the power and beauty of French.
