really liked it
Read in February, 2008

I think the writing in this was pretty good, but I felt like he wasn't trying that hard to create a real mystery. There are no red herrings in this book, which is surprising, and in almost every instance where someone is being suspicious, they are. Some things are too obvious and you figure out right away what roles most of the characters are playing. I think it does give a good sense of Arthur Conan Doyle's writing style in general, and I believe this was towards the end of his career... perhaps why it's kind of run of the mill and not overly creative. Also, I remember the Wishbone episode... haha, good stuff.
