“Sherlock Holmes and the July Crisis” is an unusual book to review. The authors are listed as both Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and James Carlopio, and this is absolutely accurate. A great deal of the text is taken directly from well over a dozen of the original Canonical Holmes stories, as produced by Doyle. Mr. Carlopio has lifted a phrase or fragment here, a bigger piece there, and whole chunks from other places, sewing them together to produce a complete novella.

Excellent Sherlock Holmes novel. Well written and a real page turner. Highly recommended. Contains a bonus Poe short story, also a well-done and enjoyable read.

This is a unique and new spin on the much-loved Sherlock Holmes stories. I was a little skeptical at first, not being sure as to how the narrative would bind together. But as I have been an avid reader of Conan Doyle most of my life, the idea intrigued me and I continued reading. And after a while, it was like sitting down in my favorite chair, with a mug of hot tea, and getting taken into a familiar world that I love so much.

This is the work of an ingenious, original and innovative mind. Taking sections of all the Sherlock Holmes novels and weaving them together into an entirely new story, while staying true to the historical & cultural context of previous books and without changing any of the original authors writing ... I don't know that anyone has ever embarked on such an ambitious or intellectually demanding writing project before. To know an authors work so well that you can recall key paragraphs from a myriad of novels and stitch them painstakingly together in this way must reflect a true love of the original work. Perhaps a new literary genre has just been born!

A creative way to bring me back to my youth. Thank you for the trip down memory lane and the mental exercise of arranging the puzzle pieces from the various original texts. This is must for Conan Doyle fans. I could see how this could be challenging for those that are not familiar with his original work although this is an engaging storyline in its own right.
