Book #5 in the Glass and Steele series. This one felt a bit short, but it also tied up some loose ends. And then, of course, opened a few more…looking forward to the next one!

Book #5 of the year: “The Earth Moved” by Amy Stewart

Absolutely amazing book about earthworms, mostly in the US but with a few looks around the world. If you‘re interested in worms, composting, or agriculture, definitely a book for you. I loved every page.

The Red-Headed League | Arthur Conan Doyle, Sir
post image
Librarybelle It‘s very rare that I figure out the solution to the mystery by the end, so I cannot speak to that. Benjamin Stevenson brings up similar rules with his Ernest Cunningham “Everyone Is A…” set of books. I personally am drawn to characters with flaws, so that plays a part in my liking the mystery. The story flow plays a huge role for me too…is it thrilling, does it unfold plausibly??? 1mo
Read4life #2 will always get a ✅ when Sherlock is on the case. 🤓 1mo
5feet.of.fury To the 5th point I think there are so many small details admitted that the real trick is figuring out which one is important. Holmes will just be saying as many things as possible 😂 like the tattoo with the pink scales being particularly Chinese, oh plus that Chinese coin right there 1mo

IndoorDame 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣&6️⃣✅ I‘m also bad at solving the crimes myself so 4️⃣&5️⃣are murkier for me… there weren‘t really multiple suspects, and the bank manager seemed to come out of nowhere, but I was getting to the idea that it was a ruse to get him out of the shop, so I expect someone good at solving mysteries ahead of the story would have enough clues to figure out most of this one? 1mo
SpellboundReader The Red Headed League gets a C grade for #4 & #5 especially concerning who the prime suspects are. Holmes has past knowledge of people/places that the reader isn't aware of and he doesn't really reveal that information until the end. For #2 & #3 the story passes the test with flying colors. Well, for #1 maybe the crime is more significant to Jabez Wilson than anyone else. Holmes finds it amusing and Watson initially seems perplexed. 1mo
dabbe @Librarybelle Same here; I rarely solve it. To be truthful, I really don't want to. I want to be stunned until the brilliant unfolding at the end. I think quite a few detective novels leave out some stuff because we all want the thrill of the solution at the end. 1mo
dabbe @Read4life Without a doubt! 🤩 1mo
dabbe @5feet.of.fury It is challenging to sift through what's important and what isn't. That's the fun of it, too, right? 🤩 1mo
dabbe @IndoorDame It is amazing when you reread the story to see that the clues are there (like looking at Clay's knees), but you just don't pick up on it the first time around. Even when they looked at the street behind Wilson's shop and when Holmes mentioned a BANK, I didn't get it the first time around. 😂 1mo
dabbe @BeeCurious For #1, if you mean the crime of Wilson losing his cozy job, totally agree. The bank heist, though, I believe was definitely a worthy crime worth our time. Totally agree on #s 4 and 5. So, Holmes has been “bested“ by Clay before (so have the police), but we're privy to none of the specifics. That makes me also wonder why Watson doesn't include that info? 1mo
SpellboundReader @dabbe Yes, I meant the initial mystery of Wilson losing his sweet paying gig. 🙂
Without the investigation by Holmes, I doubt if Wilson would have pieced together the bank heist tie-in, even after it occurred. Well, maybe if someone discovered the tunnel.
Aimeesue @dabbe There‘s a whole list of cases that Watson didn‘t write about which are mentioned in the books or short stories. Watson explains at some point e point that this is because Sherlock didn‘t solve the case, or people involved wanted it kept private, or SECRET GOVERNMENT BUSINESS (wink, wink, nudge, nudge), and so on. The brief references are tantalizing. http://www.bestofsherlock.com/ref/untlist.htm (edited) 1mo
dabbe @BeeCurious 💯 agree! 🤩 1mo
dabbe @Aimeesue Thanks for the link! They're so good they even sound better than the stories he did put down on paper! 🤩 1mo
