Holmes is back in some great short capers
I am by all accounts a Holmesian. I have read every original story a dozen times, and have several leatherbound editions that I have had for years and years. That said, I know a good Holmes book when I read it. Here, I get the joy of listening to Kevin Green as he transports us back to the 1800's. He is impeccable as Holmes and unimpeachable as Watson, the narrator of these tales. He has quick a vocal bag of tricks, and plays each character as if it was the only one in the story.
The writing is crisp, and the dialouge is sharp, and the atmosphere is perfectly set. Puhl has clearly studied his Holmes. I may be a bit daft, but I really did not see the folk tales aspect of the book much at all, but that doesn't bother me. All of the stories were great, and were of a perfect length.
I do have to say that I did get this book as a promotion tool, but the review here is honest and heartfelt. If this book was a clinker I would have said so and never looked back or felt sorry about it. In this case, it makes me want to get the first book, so that I can hear more Green, and enter Puhl's London.
