As an enamoured Sherlock Holmes fan, these snippets were such fun to read! Each chapter is a brief description of different aspects of the time, linking them to Sherlock Holmes mysteries, sort of appetizers to whet the reader's appetite...with great success in my case. I've read loads and loads of fiction and nonfiction books written in/about the Victorian era so was thrilled to devour even more! It's obvious that the author took pains and a lot of research in writing this book.

Fascinating insights to the context in which the Sherlock Holmes stories were set. A collection of essays make up this short book. At times I wished there was a little more depth but this would make a great Christmas present for a Holmes fan.
