Thanks to Horowitz

For all fans of Sherlock Holmes there, here's a masterpiece, a gripping read. Though Holmes seemed little vulnerable, the book goes for most part in Doyle-style. I am a die hard fan of Sherlock and I loved this book to the core.

Sherlock Homes Re-born !!!

Before I start to write anything, I must say that Anthony Horowitz has done commendable efforts in reviving the Victorian Era by close mimicking the original environment, language, portrait etc.

A Good Book

Based on the time Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created his Sherlock Holmes this must be the closest imitation after the legendary author stopped writing his memoirs. A racy novel that you'll want to finish with a nice story .

Quite an enjoyable read for any Sherlock Holmes fan

It will be inappropriate to compare this author to the genius of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but this is definitely an enjoyable read for any Sherlock Holmes fan. The plot is good, fast paced. The suspense builds as chapters elapse ending with a totally unexpected twist. Sherlock Holmes has been portrayed as less egoistic, a little bit emotional and vulnerable. The research done by the author to recreate the Victorian era is admirable.

For the fans....but only just.

It's perhaps a tribute to the quality of the original characters that the stories of this detective and his slightly bumbling companion are still popular.So popular that every year there seems to be either a new book or a movie or a BBC t.v series out, with varying degrees of success.I consider myself a fan but even to me the original short stories and novels (with a few exceptions) seem dated. More than the stories, it's only nostalgia and a certain Victorian atmosphere that the Holmes novels are suffused with that makes them still readable.It's no wonder that the movies and t.v serials have

The House of Silk: The New Sherlock Holmes Novel

As an ardent Sherlock Holmes fan (I have read and re-read the entire collection countless times), I would recommend this book strongly. If I was looking for Arthur Conan Doyle, I was not disappointed.. The atmosphere is suitably menacing, the plot tight, and the writing exquisite. The end however, was slightly disappointing... The book is unputdownable and I finished it in 3 days... will go back and read it more slowly this time and savour it!

Uncannily reminiscent

Sherlock Holmes fans of the world, rejoice! In "The House of Silk," Holmes is back in all his glory--the world's most famous fictional detective with an almost superhuman power of deduction.

Horowitz evokes a picture of Victorian London with precision and with a miniaturist's eye for detail, uncannily reminiscent of Conan Doyle's writing. The story follows Holmes and Watson through London and its outskirts on the trail of a crime that is unlike any other. The words "House of Silk" run as a whispered refrain throughout the book--a premonition of unheard-of evil.

Although Horowitz has numer

A good reading, but not elementary.....

The story is gripping and the narration is as close as it can get to the vintage stuff. Had it been any other work of fiction, i would have considered a 4.5/5; but for a holmes and watson, i definitely wont. I am giving it a 3.5/5(4 in the rating as it doesnt have 3.5) and after growing up on all the adventures by Sir Doyle, i believe this to be appropiate rating for the novel. Readers choice is indeed case specific and hence i say, do give it a try and if you are willing; then FLIPKART is the obvious choice, to place the order. Despite a little price hike in all the items, flipkart is still t

Here are my honest thoughts.

The big positives:
1. The author has clearly spent a lot of time on researching Holmes and the works of Sir A.C. Doyle. He has also devoted considerable time researching the period, the general layout of London and about the weather during Sherlock's years. This comes through in the book quite well.
2. The character sketches are good, but not great. The reason I say not great is because I feel the original Sherlock painted a more descriptive pitcure. However, this is commendable.
3. The plot is fast paced, and has

Sherlock Homes Re-born !!!

Before I start to write anything, I must say that Anthony Horowitz has done commendable efforts in reviving the Victorian Era by close mimicking the original environment, language, portrait etc.

At the beginning, the story seems to be going in same direction as "The Valley of Fear", i.e. the underworld mafia gang, but the story keeps on taking different turns after every 20-30 pages. And a the end, the loose threads are joined in such a fine way, which leaves reader mesmerized.

If you are already a Sherlock Homes fan, then you might be able to predict few of the events successfully, but not
