4.0 out of 5 stars Indiana Jones Holmes 15 Jun 2011
By G. Peter Wityk - Published on
I read the book. I enjoyed the book. I've even ordered the sequel. The stories are well written and engaging. But, I missed the mystery that I would associate with Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. The bulk of these nine stories made me feel like I was reading Indiana Jones Holmes. It's not a bad thing. It's just not how the book was marketed, it's reusing the characters in a different setting and in a different context. There may have been crimes committed. But, we generally know the criminal(s) and the story is the adventure of catching him/her/them.

I am sure that the people buying this book will enjoy it if they know going in that they're not buying a Sherlock Holmes mystery but a Sherlock Holmes adventure story. And, that needs to be what they're looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Post Reichenbach Near andFar Eastern Adventures 8 Oct 2011
By Elizabeth - Published on

For those who ascertain a "change" in Holmes after this post-death return - these cases help to explain how he attained some skills and philosophies he may not previously seemed to have shown. The writing is in "adventure" style - as another reviewer suggested. I was hoping/expecting more of interraction with the cultures and peoples on Holmes' travels east - but he often was involved in mysteries of his fellow or European countrymen. Enjoyable read nevertheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Facinating 16 July 2011
By Bert C. Mccollum - Published on
At Last! We finally know what Holmes was up to during those mysterious lost years after the tragic events at the Reichenbach Falls. We FINALLY know the real story of "The Giant Rat of Sumatra." An excellent collection. The fact that it was written by a professor of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures lends these stories an air of authenticity and authority that has been lacking in previous attempts to document this portion of the great detectives life. This book is a thrilling read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read or two 13 Jan 2013

I bought this after seeing it at another bookstore. Having read some Sherlock Holmes stories, I can say that Dr. Riccardi did an excellent job catching the style and cadence that Doyle used for Watson. The stories were engaging and left me craving more, while also providing an interesting answer as to what Holmes was up to between his "death" and his return to London. I thought that this was very well-written and Riccardi used language that one would expect for the time period that he was writing about. The only issue I had was the editing. There were a few places where the editing was off that could throw off the flow of the story. This may only be an issue that I noticed (I'm an English major and tend to notice these things a lot), but other than that the stories flowed beautifully. I would definitely suggest this to anyone that has an interest in Sherlock Holmes and is alright with the idea of someone other than Doyle writing about the character.
