I haven't read any detective novel that can beat Sherlock Holmes.

I believe that the Nancy Drew Series are better than Sherlock Holmes books. Nancy Drew books are more interesting with even the main character getting captured, by whatever fiend she is after.

Okay I haven't read many detective novels, but I read a random issue of Nancy Drew and it was pathetic. Nancy Drew is an idiot compared to Sherlock Holmes. The Holmes' method of deduction is fascinating and almost borders on the supernatural. And as for the main character getting captured, Sherlock Holmes is too clever to be captured, and he is an adult. Can Nancy Drew live incognito for 2 years despite being a famous celebrity? Is Nancy Drew a master of disguises and can turn into anything ranging from a sailor to a priest? Can she tell the difference between 155 types of ashes of cigars, or tell the height of a person by the length of their stride? Holmes is unbeatable.

Sorry,I was camping for a few day. Nancy Drew may be a amateur detective compared to Sherlock,but she has inspired millions of readers, all around the globe.

3 points to Pro (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: After PRO's very powerful argument in round 2, Con surrendered and said that "she has inspired millions of readers, all around the globe." Adil, Qatar

[*Reason for removal*] The debater did not specifically concede the debate. Even though he did have very minimal arguments, the voter is required to assess those points and compare them to Pro's if they wish to award argument points.
