148 Comment Sherlock Holmes - The Patchwork Devil

  1. A rather enjoyable read, though the only thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars is the break from reality that happened near the end and the occasional out of characterness of Holmes and Watson I know, I know Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character But despite this, despite being a man born of the imagination rather than the flesh, Sherlock has always operated within the real world The cases he solves, while appearing supernatural at times, always have a solution that is down to earth That [...]


  2. Man, I really liked this one It ticks a lot of my pastiche boxes most especially, that it s set in 1919 putting it firmly in His Last Bow territory, which always delights me Not enough has been written of Holmes and Watson s adventures in the era of WWI and after, perhaps because Conan Doyle established that Holmes retires and moved to Sussex at the end of his detecting career But of course, for Holmes, detecting is a calling, not just a profession and Conan Doyle himself wrote a couple of stori [...]


  3. I would first like to say thank you for Titan publishing for listing this give away and allow me to read this bookWith any characters as famous as Sherlock Holmes there will always be some skepticism over what they will do I felt to begin with that Scott hadn t quite grasped the Sherlock Holmes that everyone is used to however I was soon proven wrong Scott pushes the boundaries of what a Sherlock novel would usually entail whilst retaining the traditional characters see in Arthur Conan Doyle s w [...]


  4. This is a tricky one to review, because while very well written and engaging on many levels, even despite the suspension of disbelief element, it wasn t a bad story at all Predictable, yes, but also fast paced and exciting However, the characterizations left so much to be desired, and the arguing between every character at some point that went beyond the normal creation of conflict in any given work of fiction was just grating in the extreme Watson who needed a dose of Midol throughout was const [...]


  5. Like others have said, this story is a break from Doyle s strict dealing in the normal and goes into the paranormal realm while still remaining grounded in possible future scientific accomplishments, and so for that reason, I am labeling this as the first ever Sherlock Holmes book I ve read that classifies as science fiction This isn t a story about spirits, but it is a story about a scientific feat that is not possible for us even today one hundred years later, and you ll hope it never is possi [...]


  6. Probably the best of the new Holmes stories issued by Titan Books Holmes and Watson in their 60 s solve a mystery that involves World War I, Mycroft Holmes, Watson s second wife, and mysterious creatures or persons who may or may not be artificially created The plot is skillfully crafted up to the end then it splits apart with a perfunctory conclusion that does not sufficiently explain and resolve itself.


  7. It keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out if there s a Frankenstein in the mix of not It keeps you reading and you just don t want to put the book down.


  8. I really enjoy this series, and this is another solid entry Good pacing, nicely veiled, and then revealed plot Well worth reading.


  9. I really enjoyed it and would like to read the other Sherlock Holmes book that he wrote This was a very interesting book.


  10. See my other reviews at Never Enough BooksWorld War 1 has come and gone, changing the face of history and of science Holmes and Watson are retired men now, each having gone their separate ways It is during one of Sherlock s visits to London however that the two are called back in to action.A severed hand has been found along the bank of the Thames Fingerprints show the hand belongs to a young soldier who supposedly died in France two years earlier Yet the hand found is fresh and looks as if it w [...]


  11. The fresh hand of man dead for two yearsI will put up a SPOILERS ALERT warning although I will try to not ruin the book for anyone It is simply common courtesy, and I have been taken to task for not giving warning too often The year is 1919 Sherlock Holmes is visiting at Dr and Mrs Watson s home One thing I should add is that at no time does the author give the name of the second wife Mrs Watson has less patience with Holmes than Mary Watson had So it is far from pleasing when Holmes and Watson [...]


  12. The story of Frankenstein was understood from the outset, but Scott still managed to keep it seem fresh, even with the soldier angle obvious too I still loved the book.


  13. I was surprised that Mary Shelley s Frankenstein was also intertwined with the story line Although I thought the giant brute was similar to Victor s creation I didn t think the two storylines would be brought together Although I enjoyed the text, I thought the ending could have included of a twist or something .


  14. A great story in the Sherlock Holmes universe.Mix in monsters, thugs mad German scientist, Mycroft apparently against his brother Sherlock, Doctor Watson getting beat up, threats against Mrs Watson, references to Frankenstein and you have a rollicking puzzle for Sherlock and Watson to solve.A great story


  15. A highly enjoyable read Well paced and an effective mimic of Doyle s writing style without being a slave to it A slightly fantastical story than a traditional Holmes and Watson adventure, but well handled and all the characters are developed in a way to make the tale believable Definitely worth a look.


  16. I won this book in a goodread giveaway A really enjoyable read set after the first world war abit far fetched at times but its fiction hey ho The characters had matured but were still likeableand the plot held its own Many thanks


  17. Great readMust read for fans of Holmes Typical Holmes and Watson adventures that continue to fascinate Doyle would be proud to call this his own.


  18. Absolutely engaging Great book Well written and entertaining I loved this book Won courtesy of giveaways




  19. I love what titan books have done with the Sherlock twists This wasn t my favourite one but still a cracking read which kept me hooked the whole way through.
