942 Comment A Study in Charlotte

  1. 2 1 2 stars This was fun in parts, but it really didn t do for me what it seems to be doing for a lot of readers and critics.A Study in Charlotte follows the descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as they solve crimes on a modern day college campus In this story, both Sherlock and Watson were real people and Arthur Conan Doyle was Watson s literary agent, who helped publish the tales of their cases.Many years later, Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson find themselves caught up in some copy [...]

  2. This was tons of fun I m a Sherlock fan, but not a super fan by any means I ve watched the BBC show and know the basics about the story but I ve never actually read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s tales though I plan to So with my knowledge of Sherlock in mind, I thought this was an excellent tribute Watson was just as I d imagine him, and Sherlock was fascinating, as per usual Together the pair made an incredible power couple This has some hints of romance that I thought would annoy me but I actually [...]

  3. I m a massive fan of Sherlock ALL THE SHERLOCK TV shows, movies, and I ve read some of the actual books too despite being terrified of classics go me I basically went into A Study in Charlotte like an abnormally excited goose waiting for glory Iwas disappointed The book wasn t bad, pfft, don t get me wrong The book is fine But I felt meh a lot and there were a lot of things that made me squint.Let s get the squinty things out the way first In this universe, Arthur Conan Doyle DID write the books [...]

  4. Full review postedMy heart has been needing this book for longer than I realized I needed this book THIS BOOK IS BLOODY BRILLIANT For a number of reasons Aside from the fact that I read this book in less than a day and that I physically could NOT stop reading it, this book is the murder mystery you ve always needed You got a snarky know it all girl You got a nerdy precious boy WHO ARE DECENSANTS OF SHERLOCK AND WATSON I MEAN GOALS ANYONE So after a murder took place on school grounds and Holmes [...]

  5. Quick Fire Review I don t know what s alluring, the cover or the synopsis I especially admired the book s ties to the Sherlock Holmes mysteries and was wildly impressed by how fluid and natural the connections were between the two This book balances the line between paying homage to Holmes mysteries and also being fresh and original A Study in Charlotte brings a thrilling plot, spot on characterization, whip smart writing, and a puzzling mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end Al [...]

  6. I m a fan of Sherlock Holmes, so when I saw this book is about the descendants of Sherly and Johnny, I know I have to read it becauseFirst of all, I went into this book with an expectation of murder, mystery and purely platonic relationship between the main characters Despite shipping BBC s Sherlock and John because how can you not ship Benedict and Martin , I still love the relationship between the original Sherlock and Watson.They have the best friendship ever and I was hoping that the author [...]

  7. Good but not great Really big fan of Sherlock Holmes, so I was super excited to read this book It was interesting and not a bad read but it didn t necessarily blow me away Soo yup, sticking with 3 stars on this one.

  8. I was well and truly Sherlocked before picking up this book which I did with both hope and trepidation You see, those of us who love the Sherlock world always want And there s a limited supply Or, to qualify that statement a limited supply of quality additions to the oeuvre Do you like that word, oeuvre I hope so I feel it is a very Sherlock word I ll cut to the verdict YES PARTY AT 221 B Because Sherlock is back in female form, with a totally empathetic, very perfectly Watsonian guy as her Wat [...]

  9. DNF at about 50% This review contains spoilers I am going to lay this book aside for now Maybe it has to do with me finishing The Winner s Kiss recently, which made me a mess and in no shape for reading anything else At least partly The Winner s kiss is to blame, but mostly I am disappointed with A study in Charlotte, because it started like such a promising light funny read and then turned abruptly into something dark with serious issues, which weren t handled properly in my opinion What I like [...]

  10. So I enjoyed this way than I thought I would It reminded me a lot of the sort of books I enjoyed when I was younger and gave me a BBC Sherlock meets Veronica Mars sort of vibe The writing style also pleasantly surprised me because I expected it to be a lot elementary than it was I really liked both Charlotte and Jamie as characters The only thing I found a bit cheesy was the whole being related to the original Sherlock and Holmes it was a little too Disney Descendants for me Other than that, I [...]

  11. I WOULD give a disclaimer that Brittany Cavallaro is a friend of mine, but the fact is, our friendship really blossomed AFTER I read this book As in, I read this book and was like, How do I make you mine, Brittany Cavallaro I want to live in your beautiful brain I really don t know where to start How about with the writing Absolutely gorgeous Cavallaro is an accomplished poet and even in this YA novel, that really shows Her sentences aren t purple or overwrought, but they do shine Her writing s [...]

  12. 2.5 stars Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss We re being toyed with, I said But why would he want us to know he s after us If I didn t have a rule about finishing books that I started, then I would have not finished this Firstly, I ve never read any Sherlock Holmes books, so I have no idea if this is a good rendition, and I m not even going to go there.I didn t really like the characters in this, and I didn t lik [...]

  13. This book had a long way to go to win me over I ve just never been than the most casual fan of the Sherlock Holmes character archetype I do like the Cumberbatch version Plus, hasn t this character been written about than any other in all literature Well, this book handily won me over and then some A lot, actually Who knew that all I needed to love the Holmes archetype was to see him take the form of a ferociously brilliant teenage girl I loved everything about this book The voice is phenomenal [...]

  14. Well, this was utterly ridiculous as far as mysteries go And also ham handed in its handling of both rape and drug use.

  15. I began wondering if there was some kind of Watsonian guide for the care and keeping of Holmeses 4.5 stars This was my most anticipated book of 2016 and IT DIDN T LET ME DOWN Gosh, I loved it It was so damn cute I couldn t stop reading, it seriously was terrible not to proceed with it for the whole day due to studying Otherwise, I would ve finished this way sooner.Okay, now I m gonna follow an order and shut down my exploding feels for once I m gonna start by saying that, regarding the tv movies [...]

  16. OH MAN THIS BOOK IS SO GOODRIOUSLY EVERYONE GET THEIR HANDS ON A COPY IT S SO FREAKING GOOD.Honestly, I m kind of a sucker for anything to do with Sherlock Holmes, but I couldn t even help but love this absolutely fabulous sort of SH retelling Why sort of retelling Because it s set in an alternate world where Sherlock Holmes and John Watson were real people and our two main characters are descendants of that famous duo.The straight main act of Watson is the perfect temper to Holmes sharp wit whi [...]

  17. when i heard this was going to be a SHERLOCK retelling, i surly exploded with excitement ASIC did not disappoint the plot is beautifully thought out, bringing concepts from the original story and also adding its own originalityever, i think this story had the potential to be i felt like it lacked that last breath, but can t pinpoint what it precisely is it might ve been because the pacing was a little fast for my taste the story felt surprisingly short i just wanted moooooore.other than that TH [...]

  18. I loved this book SO FREAKING MUCH I didn t know what to expect but it certainly wasn t that I thought it was a retelling and it was and wasn t Charlotte and Jamie are wonderful I can t wait for book two If you like Sherlock, either the books, shows or movies, ANY SHERLOCK THIS IS FOR YOU

  19. The two of us, we re the best kind of disaster Apples and oranges Well, like apples and machetes I m actually not a fan of Sherlock Holmes Not because I don t like him, but because I ve just never really been interested in him in the first place I must admit that, even though I ve watched the movies with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law, I ve never read any of the Sherlock Holmes novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle before and I also still haven t gotten around to watching the TV show although my sist [...]

  20. I absolutely loved this book I thought I would like it, I thought it would be interesting, but I didn t expect to love it as much as I do.In a way, I wish I had not read it yet, because now I want to binge on the entire series.But there is no series yet just this one book This was so well written, and the story was so good, I absolutely loved it

  21. I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE I adore mysteries, and I love Sherlock Holmes stories, but I wasn t sure what to expect Holmes adaptations can be a bit unpredictable, right So I am delighted to say that I enjoyed this book from beginning to end The writing is lovely, the mystery is clever and kept me guessing, and the nods to Arthur Conan Doyle s stories are abundant and obviously come from a place of great love and admiration Best of all are the two main c [...]

  22. I began wondering if there was some kind of Watsonian guide for the care and keeping of Holmeses flappy hands Hands down, the best Holmes and Watsonaptation I ve ever had the pleasure of reading By turns amusing, dark, cute, heartbreaking, and fun as hell OF COURSE, there s a riveting mystery here murder most foul at a prep school , but the real meat of the novel is the partnership and growing friendship between this Watson Jamie, an honorable, rugby playing stalwart, as usual and this Holmes Ch [...]

  23. I listened to this on audio after a good friend said she needed me to jump into this series so she could rant with me about the feels, and oh my gosh, I m so glad I did I especially like that the Holmes character, Charlotte, is a teenage girl in this rendition A great, plot driven novel with a touch of romance was exactly what I was looking for to kick off my summer, and this book delivered Amanda Kay Oaksfrom The Best Books We Read In May 2017 bookriot 2017 06 02 riot

  24.

I m a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, so I this book had large shoes to fill for me And it exceeded my expectations I loved this book Brittany Cavallaro weaves a detailed contemporary world with complex characters and a scintillating mystery into a completely fresh take on the classic duo of Sherlock and Holmes I LOVED that Sherlock was a girl Charlotte although she is a descendant of the true Sherlock And even brilliant was how we come to know Charlotte through Watson s point of view Charlotte was t [...]

  26. We ve seen all kinds of permutations of the Holmes Watson Moriarty trio in YA over the past few years, from Lock Mori, which has a guy Sherlock and a female Moriarty, to Every Breath, with a Sherlock inspired crime solving teen couple, to this book, which features Charlotte Holmes and Jamie Watson.A Study in Charlotte did something interesting contradictory, which was to acknowledge the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories in the text and also have the main characters be descendants of the real Holmes [...]

  27. We weren t Sherlock Holmes and John Watson I was okay with that, I thought We had things they didn t, too Like electricity, and refrigerator And Mario Kart I feel so torn about this rating I was so very excited about this book when I marked it as to read almost a year ago I love Sherlock Holmes, I love the movie adaptations, I love the characters inspired by him and I am a sucker for the BBC series you re invited over for a marathon any time you like This book though felt like it needed the grea [...]
