Format: Paperback
If you're expecting a lifelike description of Arthur Conan Doyle's famous sleuth Sherlock Holmes - think again. This appears to be like it but is completely different. It is a witty humorous tale of 'Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson - from an introspective view.' The stories are there, related even to real life authors such as John Buchan and his crime thriller 'The 39 Steps' involving spies and conspiracy theories. What binds the plots is the unique way in which Colin Garrow paints his portrait of our Baker Street heroes: with constant reminders of the "thickness" of Dr Watson and references to various (male) body parts, in particular the ones below the waist. The suggestions made are most of the time absurd, but somehow you can't help smiling upon yet another physical discomfort described so bluntly.

Needless to say that this is not for the fainthearted, nor for those who seek the higher goal of emancipation and feminism. Whenever Dr Watson has to empathize he is reminded of 'exploring his feminine side', if you think this is too much, then clearly you will not appreciate this witty detective novel. By the way, even Mrs Watson makes a considerable contribution, she seems of somewhat disreputable character and has regular flings, for instance with an Italian ice cream seller. She even proves more useful to Holmes than her spouse, who, when asked to take stakes to Count Alucard's castle brings a variety of 'T-bones, rib-eyes and pork chops" with him to which Holmes reacts "Ah. Then we might have an ever bigger problem.." Just to name some diversions in the book.

This book is a pleasure to read, with a plotline mixed with typical dry British humour - which makes Colin Garrow's second volume of 'The Watson Letters' a very entertaining read!

Don’t buy this book expecting the Holmes and Watson that you’ve come to know. Whilst not a fan of revisionist or modernised takes on our most famous literary characters, Garrow puts us in enough of a spin to make his tale unique and humorous. The most likable character written into this hoot of a story is Mrs Watson who behaves appallingly and makes no apologies for it. Neither does the author who has taken two very famous characters and turned them in on themselves. There’s lots of references to the nether-regions which will either make you laugh hysterically or slam the book down in rage. If you like the British sense of humour though, then you’re in for an absolute hoot of a ride. Quite literally if you fall into the hands of Mrs Watson.

I’m a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. This fun take on the famous detective and his sidekick Dr. Watson, did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded my expectations.

Instead of the usual storyline, the author put the crime-fighting duo into a Steam Punk universe, which added an interesting twist to the stories.

Moriarty is there because how can you write about Sherlock without his nemesis? Another welcome addition to this book is the humor. The stories are well written, with great plots, and will have you laughing as you follow the adventures of the great Sherlock Holmes.

I am a Sherlock fan and adored this take on the stories. I wasn't expecting Steampunk but oh my, did it go well with the excellent narrative. This is very much a fun read and highly recommended. Actually, it is a book to read again and again as it will never grow jaded. Loved it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not My Sherlock! 21 April 2017
By Ruth Himes - Published on Amazon.com

For this particular style of book I didn't like the use of the F word. It didn't fit in! The humor was a bit raw. There were a few clever bits, but not my style.
