Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece
Sherlock Holmes is my all-time favorite fictional detective so I had very high hopes for this book. Unfortunately though, it did not live up to my expectations. I've read all of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes works and a lot of pastiches so I like to think I have a pretty good understanding of Holmes character and this book did not do him justice at all. I never got the feel for the true Holmes character. It was a pretty bad imitation. The speech, the mannerisms, etc. were completely off I thought. The book was also very slow and very boring! From the beginning, it was just one info dump after another. It took me a while and several tries to trudge through it.
