Mehso-so

Disclaimer: This is third in series but MY introduction to Joanna (Sherlock Holmes‘ daughter). So, to be fair, I might have enjoyed it more with previous books under my belt. While I did expect her character to be logical and a bit stilted, I found the writing and the characters overall to be dry and not as engaging and in-depth as I had hoped. The plot, involving German spies, a British traitor and coded messages was fine, but I feel like ⬇️

robinb maybe I should go back and start from the beginning of the series...maybe I would get more out of these characters. For now, I give this a 3/5⭐️. Out 6/11 (edited) 6mo

revenge4porgy Dear Littens quick question I‘m looking for a book recommendation for my eleven year old niece she loves Rick Riordan, JK Rowling. Is she too young for a book like The Time Machine? Or To Kill A Mockingbird? Somebody recommended Eragon to me for her. 3mo

I find that this series has gotten better each book; the books may be a bit laborious for modern day readers, but I love that it is very similar to Doyle‘s original Sherlock stories.

While I had a feeling I knew who would be the villain, I enjoyed the wondering of whether or not I was correct and all the info was being parcelled out in small doses.
