4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than some reviews seem to say!, 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Dr Jekyll and Mr Holmes (Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Paperback)) (Paperback)
I've just finished reading this book while I was going on holiday and it was excellent fare for the flight. This was a well written Sherlock pastiche and I have read quite a few in this series. Watson as narrator is entirely convincing in style and Sherlock is very much his old self. I find the criticism of the piece interesting in certain respects as the main complaint is that you know what will happen, you already know that Hyde is of course Jekyll. But then again if you watch Columbo on television you know who did it, and the interest is how the murderer is tracked down. Likewise here, the interest is in how Sherlock follows the bewildering trail toward the conclusion I accept e are aware of. I would also say that another book in the series is on the Titanic, and although I have not yet read this I suspect the Titanic may well end up sinking!
So I would say don't be put off, I found this an enjoyable and convincing addition to the genre. I haven't given it five stars as at times I felt it lacked some direction, but on the whole a very credible effort!
