Overall, I liked this. The characterization of Holmes and Watson feels right.
Started H is For Hawk on my #audiowalk
This book has gone pretty fast; I‘ve got about an hour and a half left. #audiowalk
I couldn‘t find a new walking book I wanted to listen to, then someone mentioned this. I thought it looked interesting and involved Christmas but wasn‘t too Christmasy, so I got it from Hoopla and now it‘s my walking book. It was a beautiful day here for walking. #audiowalk
Conclusion of a 2 part-er within this long Mary Russell / Sherlock Holmes series. It must have been good cos I stayed up until 3am to finish it and I really try not to do that too often!! I love the historical detail in this series and Mary is a fabulous character. No 10 in the series. #CrimeReads #CosyCrime #CrimeFiction #Sherlock #HistoricalCrime #SherlockHolmes #MaryRussell #DetectiveNovel
If you enjoy reading Sherlock Holmes I believe you would enjoy this book, in which James Lovegrove has done a good job of capturing the essence of the original books. This captures the darker side of Christmas linked to Christmas traditions of the past in some countries. Overall enjoyable and kept you guessing to the end.
4th book finished for #WinterReadathon
Time for a slightly different Christmas book for #WinterReadathon with Sherlock Holmes.
James Lovegrove usually does a good job of these.
Possibly won;t get many word search or bingo words with this one.
I've never read the original Sherlock Holmes books but I love the YA Enola Holmes books and this great series by Laurie R King gives an older Sherlock a young and brilliant wife, Mary Russell and she is the narrator of this richly researched historical series. This particular one is the first half of a 2 part-er which is slightly annoying... but I still highly recommend them. #CrimeReads #CosyCrime #Sherlock #HistoricalCrime
This was a great exploration of Sherlock series 1 to 3 (so it doesn‘t include The Abominable Bride or Series 4). Pairing original stories with scripts, showcasing lots of great photos, discussing effects and stunts and continuity…lots to learn about the show. My only quibble is that not all of the photos had captions. Now off to rewatch Sherlock 😆
I read this graphic novel last night, full title: Victorian Undead: Sherlock Holmes Vs Zombies!, & it does not hide its light under a bushel. Victorian London, Holmes, Watson, Mycroft (looking more than a little like veteran actor, Charles Gray) & Moriarty. And zombies, lots of flesh-munching, brain-eating zombies! Romping fun, & atmospheric artwork. 🧟♀️🔎🧟♂️
There's a sequel featuring Dracula, which I'll see if the library can get in 🧛🏻♂️
