I bought this book after many recommendations from friends, and the prospect of a long stop over at Madrid Airport... It did not disappoint. I can highly recommend it as a good read for a long journey. Having not read the Sherlock Holmes stories (now on my Christmas list). I was worried I would be left in the dark for large parts of the book. This was not the case as this book is well structured with necessary details being added around many comical occurrences and much merry entertainment.
I have in the past found books a bit of a chore, but this book had a great flow and was a pleasure to read. In no time I had read through and grown fond of charming characters such as Hannah Brayley and even Arthur Hudson, Mrs Hudson's late husband. I look forward to trying out a few of Mrs Hudson's recipes which appear in the book, as do photographs and background information which give a great insight as to what life may have been like in Baker Street and the surrounding London area at that time. I believe this book is a fine addition to any person's collection, whether you are a big Sherlock Holmes fan or a very light reader such as myself. This very well presented hardback book looks great on my book shelf, I hope to add to my collection soon with books that are able to tick as many boxes for me as Mrs Hudson's Diaries has.
I certainly will be continuing the positive reviews of this book and I wait in excitement to see more from the father / son Cryer partnership, whether it be a continuation from the book or perhaps a television adaptation? Fingers and toes crossed for more!
