really liked it

The story was interesting and the props fun. I can't say the mystery made any sense, but I couldn't figure out the clues, despite, for once, making the effort. Though I deduced the criminal by rights of narrative casualty.

And the book is beautiful. Lots of illustrations, and the props really are well done. However, the newspaper had a story printed on the cover and inside, and that was apparently not a clue.

The alternate interpretation of "The Adventure of the Empty House" is a version of a others I've seen before so it didn't take me too much by surprise, though it seemed perhaps a little far fetched.

As there was such attention to detail however, I rather wish the introduction, which took place in modern day, wasn't given the same treatment as the "original" letters from the modern day when they're talking about emails and things.
