    The Sherlock Holmes Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained by David Stuart Davies (Anonymous user)
    Anonymous user: Delightful companion volume to the complete canon. Each novel or story has a separate chapter, so it's easy to skip what you haven't read. Lots of fascinating background and trivia, plus a wealth of superb illustrations. Handsomely printed and bound, easy to hold and read.

Review for His Last Bow

A quick adventure that take place on the eve of World War I, His Last Bow is not a mystery at all, but something of a spy caper, as Sherlock Holmes brings down a German spy-master. It's good because it's Holmes and as always he's the master, but it's bittersweet too as the reader knows both what is coming both for England and themselves, as this is one of the last stories we'll ever have.


I read this as part of the Memorial Day BookLikes-opoly donation to the jail library. It was 10 pages in length, and although it has a war theme, it still only earns $1.00. ( )

Full disclosure I DNF’d this book at 85%, so I didn’t actually finish it. But it’s nearly 1800 pages and I didn’t want it not to count for my total book/page count so, yeah, I lied and added it to my Read pile.

This was the most boring thing I’ve ever read and I’m only giving it two stars instead of one because it’s written well and there was nothing, like, offensive in it (as in, the plots were fine, the grammar and spelling were fine, etc).

So yeah, I quit at 85% but I’m saying I read it, still. Sue me lol. ( )

The great Classic of detective fiction: the Holmes Corpus. I re-read it at least once a year. ( )

Read and reread starting one summer during Junior High, they fired my imagination then and offer a welcome return whenever I dip into them. ( )
