An interesting book, although I found it a little more interesting from FDR on because they're presidents who I am familiar with ---

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius who uses the gift of deduction and reason to solve the most vexing of crimes. Warlock Holmes, however, is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; a font of arcane power, certainly. But he's brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn't deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart flatmate. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety.

Narration isn't bad, but I didn't think that the story was either funny, or even silly, as other reviewers said but most of all it wasn't really very interesting at all - I was hoping for a somewhat better satire and was really disappointed in it and finally gave up on it and never finished it ---
