Book Review: Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook

Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook (Mycroft Holmes #1-5) Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalypse Handbook by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

After reading Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's excellent text novel about Mycroft Holmes, I picked this up. What a mistake. The story is set with a much younger Mycroft who is called in by the British government to solve some massively convoluted problem.

This book left me wondering how much Abdul-Jabbar's co-author contributed to the novel because this is bad. The character of Mycroft is totally unrecognizable. We get scenes of Mycroft having sex with the wife of one of his professor even though he's barely of age. The story is convoluted, the art is weak, and the story could feature any random Victorian guy and would probably be better if it did.
