Read from July 28 to December 13, 2011

I bought Death Cloud on my way home from Scotland this summer and I read it on the plane. As a Sherlock junkie, I totally loved it. Death Cloud gives you the perfect glimpse of the life of 14-year-old Sherlock Holmes, before he gets all mental. Not only does the book introduce you to the detective, but it shows the reader the beginning of Sherlock’s obsession with bees, and his use of the science of deduction. Disclaimer: I’ve never actually read ir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, but I’ve seen the movie with Robert Downey Jr., and the BBC miniseries Sherlock. Both are fantastic, and this book is great as well. While the cover of Death Cloud did not attract me, I picked it up anyway because I saw the words, “Young Sherlock Holmes”. I’m happy I bought it. I’ll be sharing this one with plenty of friends and family. It’s a great mystery and back story.
