    I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print

    Story
    "Steampunk meets B grade action feature"

    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.

    Story
    "nice idea, poor execution"

    Sherlock is in vogue big time, and has always had authors writing pastiches etc., but few seem to get it right, and for me this one didn't. The steam-punk angle was of interest, but ultimately disappointing. And it's apparent that this is intended to be the beginning of a series, which I will not go on with. the voice of Sherlock was rather uninspired also. Dibdin's Last Sherlock Holmes Story is still one of the best; A Slight Trick of the Mind was excellent as well; and I hold high hopes for Gardner's Return of Moriarty. But this one I can not recommend. Portions of it are simply a rehash of the Bruce Partington Plans I believe.
