Actually i should not review this book because i had not completed it full...
But the reason for that had forced me to review,
Straight forward i didn't liked this book, a too boring one, i did tried a lot to complete it, but whenever i do try i feel bored and get into dreams as soon as i do start reading it,
Sorry, i can't tell anything about the story...

After time spent apart, the dynamic duo reunite for a nighttime capture on the Eve of World War I. Short, sweet and ever so satisfying, one of the last of Holmes' and Watson's cases puts on a show.
What's so say about more Sherlock. Is one really any better than any of the others? I guess you'd have to be a serious crazy cray Sherlock fan to get into the nooks and crannies of that, but anyhow good Sherlock, good audio. And I love how every single time Doyle brought back Sherlock he'd title it, No Seriously This is the Last One: Sherlock's Farewell Fuck Off Tour and then five days later he'd be pressured or financially situated into needing to write a new batch.

Niet echt een mysterie, maar wel leuk om te lezen.
I became a fan of Sherlock Holmes through BBC's modernized version, and I have yet to encounter a story, TV adaptation, or movie that I don't like. I read a few of the most popular original stories before coming across this set of 8. Five of them were quite memorable; the other three were not stand-outs for me. Overall, I really enjoyed this set of stories.

It's nice to be able to read an entire story in an hour. The character of Sherlock Holmes ever amazes me. And he constantly makes me laugh. The end of this story is brilliant, with foreboding and mystery and closure at the same time.
Almost through my rereading of the Canon in a year. This one was shorter than I remembered it, and Doyle is definitely recycling some of his earlier plots, but there is some really nice writing, particularly in the title story. Still a 5.
I loved this epilogue to the Holmes series. It was very different from what you would normally expect from Holmes and yet it was brilliant and entertaining the whole read
Jeff Yoak
Not one of the better-written stories, even if Holmes pulled out of retirement late in his life to tackle an infamous spy is a good premise.

Nice story, simple, without any drama.

Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism record
