This ranks in my 2nd tier of favorites. It was really good (much better than a lot of others), but not my favorite.
As always, Enola is my favorite character. I enjoy listening to her growth, her humor and her interactions with Sherlock.
Yes. Katherine is always an excellent narrator. Her accents and voices are always enjoyable, and this is comparable to her others.
Yes, it's short enough to listen to all at once, but even if it had been longer, I'd still want to hear it in one sitting.
I highly recommend this entire series. Although I've heard that this is the last book, I'm hoping that Nancy Springer will write more. I would love to watch Enola grow up and come into her own.
I really like the character Enola Holmes. She is spunky and just as good a detective as her much older brother Sherlock. The narrator of this series is superb!
Sad, hopeful, interesting
Enola, my daughter and I listen together and we find her fun, brave
Enola. Katherine is great as always.
Her learning her mother was dead and then being with her brothers.
This is a great series.
Tell us about yourself!
This was either a wonderful conclusion to the series or a really good book in I hope a continually ongoing series. Enola is growing up and in fact one thinks perhaps her two brilliant brothers may be as well.
Set in Victorian England all of these stories have been educational as well as entertaining, telling a bit about the harsh realities of life in that time. The social injustice and the extremes of poverty suffered by so many of that era.
Layered over it all is a cracking good tale with lots of danger and suspense. The narration is perfect for the character and it all blends so well it carries you along, until suddenly it is sadly over until the next book comes out.
So much is wrapped up in this one that you are tempted to fear there is no more to write for these characters, but the door is left open a crack. Could it be? oh I hope so.
