Loved the way Horowitz weaved in references to original Holmes stories.
Sir Derek was suburb. Never seems to
Another great Holmes novel in the tradition of Doyle. Great storyline twisting the two mysteries together. Love the way it was tied in to Doyle's work.
As die-hart Sherlock Holmes fans, we are thrilled that this write continues in the Donan style. Great story, great deductions and lots of twists.
This was the first book I have read that followed my vision of Holmes. Horowitz has nailed it for Sherlock fans!! I would encourage any reader to grab this one. It was great from beginning to end!!
Please Mr. Horowitz keep up the fantastic work!! I will wait in hope for another tale!!!
I've been listening to audio books for years and have been an audible subscriber for ? 10 years maybe? A long time anyway.
The fact that it is the first Holmes mystery not written by Doyle.
Bringing the two sub plots together at the end
I thought that House of Silk had a good story line, but I do want to mention that it did go into some dark subject matters. I especially enjoyed listening to Derek Jacobi!! He was a great Watson!
I liked the book, even can say I enjoyed the book. Is is a great book? I would say no,but there are too few great books. I would agree with the advertising for this story that it is in the characterization of the original stories. However the narative and opinions of Dr Watson is more contemporary to our 21st century rather than of the late 1800's.
I love Conan Doyle's Holmes and Watson. This was a very good pastiche. Holmes and Watson were well-drawn characters, based on the originals but with just enough of a twist of the new to make them interesting. Dereck Jacobi did a terrific job of reading. His voice really added to my enjoyment of the book.
Mr. Horowitz has done a masterful job of recreating Holmes and his methods and Watson as the completely capable friend, assistant, and chronicler. all in a completely engrossing double mystery. Derek Jacobi is the perfect narrator in the guise of an elderly Watson- the prologue and afterward are pieces of art in thier own rights
Holmes was portrayed just as if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had wrote the story! Please write more!!!
Narration and portrayal of charactors was excellent, feels just like your there in old England
Great story-- Horowitz did a fantastic job and while i didn't read the book I can safely from listening to this unabridged audio version BUY IT !!! I WILL !!! --again I say please write more!!!
