Read from July 16 to 22, 2010

I listened to the Beekeeper's Apprentice audio book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The reader was excellent, Jenny Sterlin, which is of tremendous importance to stay interested. The book is about Sherlock Holmes, the Beekeeper, and his apprentice Mary Russell, a young and brilliant teenager who can keep up with and sometimes surpass Holmes and his extraordinary deductive mind and wit. They are both leading boring and uneventful lives until they meet. They are attracted to each other's rare brilliance; they adore each other like a father and daughter. The book is primarily the exchanges between the two while Mary learns the detective trade from Holmes. I found myself re-listening to a few of their exchanges because I found myself attempting to repeat phrases from Holmes. The story was well done, surprising, and interesting. I'll pick up the next book in the Mary Russell series when I'm ready for another.
