I bought this on the strength of the good reviews, so I feel obligated to offer this opposing view.
The two stories are related only in time and place and neither does anything to advance the other. Holmes is too gruesome to be saved by the dry exposition, and the Exhibition is presented in detail that never reveals the grandness of it.
The narrator has done well with other books, but harms this one with mis-pronunciations and strange emphasis. Perhaps he never was enchanted by the story either. If it improves toward the end I'm afraid that I will not find out. I'm abandoning it just half way through
