    Well, I finished it, which isthan I can say for my previous attempt at reading Springer Maybe something about her style is just not for me I remember really disliking the protagonist of her book I tried, which wasn t the case here I felt neutral toward Enola I had the general sympathy I would always feel toward a bright young woman feeling confined by social strictures, but other than that she didn t seem that interesting, or as smart as the author was telling me she was.Pacing wise, t Well, I finished it, which isthan I can say for my previous attempt at reading Springer Maybe something about her style is just not for me I remember really disliking the protagonist of her book I tried, w...

    I thought this could be either really good or really annoying There have been so many Sherlock Holmes spin offs, and part of me wondered whether we really needed his little sister thrown into the mix Well, I, for one, am delighted to meet the acquaintance of Miss Enola Holmes, even if poor Papa Doyle never knew this belated child of the family he created What a delightful character She is intelligent and resourceful without being annoying, a perplexing and pleasing blend of the expected mann I thought this could be either really good or really annoying There have been so many Sherlock Holmes spin ...

    I chose this to listen to with my nine year old daughter We recently finished listening to Philip Pullman s Sally Lockhart series, which we loved I m not sure how I found this series which also features a strong young female protagonist but I m glad I did.What grabbed my attention from the very beginning of the book was the author s ability to paint a vivid setting The first words describe the place, the month the year, the time of day the East End of London, August 1888, after dark She the I chose this to listen to with my nine year old daughter We recently finished listening to Philip Pullman s Sally Lockhart series, which we loved I m not sure how I found this series which also features a strong young female protagonist but I m glad I did.What grabbed my attention from the very beginning of the book was the author s ability to paint a vivid setting The...

    Excellent YA mystery series opener for fans of YA, mysteries, Sherlock Holmes themed pastiches, etc.I had some initial trepidation over reading this I disliked the precocious Flavia de Luce from Alan Bradley s The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie However, Enola Holmes is a nice surprise in the guise of period piece teen detective If Sherlock Holmes had a baby sister, she would surel...

    This was a very quick read, and as such, my review will be quick as well Overall, I enjoyed this book quite a bit, but there were some things that were a little off putting for me Initially, the writing using lots of dashes and sentence fragments, was a little hard to adjust to, but adjust I did, and it stopped bothering me as much aroun...

    Now I think about it, most YA books especially fantasies or action adventure do involve a mystery of sorts That said, I can think of few YA books that are, actually, mysteries complete with a missing person, a detective, and hidden clues So, in that respect, I was very pleased to read this, and found it refreshing and unique.I really enjoyed Springer s style even though at times it was a bit too detailed rambling, and I think some younger readers might not enjoy that style as much since t Now I think about it, most YA books especially fantasies or action adventure do involve a mystery of sorts That said, I can think of few YA books that are, actually, mysteries complete with a missing person, a detective, and hidden clues So, in that respect, I was very pleased to read this, and found it refreshing and unique.I really enjoyed Springer s style even though at times it was a bit too detailed rambling, ...

    Having decided to hoard the latest escapades of Flavia De Luce for hopefully better days ahead I cast my nets and twitched my literary feelers seeking a palatable substitute It s never been totally dismissed that Sherlock had a canonical sister He mentions a possibly hypothetical sister several times in The Copper Beeches The debates go on It s been a while since I dipped my toes in the YA sea I ve had lots of fun in the past when I have dived in but these days the...
