Narration: Doctor Watson's narrator fits the role but Holme's narrator I felt did not. Overall the narration was good
It is the Arthur Conan Doyle 1912 story "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans" with some of the names/genders changed and the Bruce-Partington submarine, changed to the Nautilus. In places especially in the first half it's almost word for word from the original 1912 story.
The first half reads like a Holmes story the second half reads like some B grade action movie with the bionic man thrown in for good measure. Holmes conclusions are lifted straight from the original story by Arthur Conan Doyle.
I my opinion this Book will not appeal to people looking for an Arthur Conan Doyle Holmes alternative story, nor is this book really steam punk.
