What did you like most about Warlock Holmes - A Study in Brimstone?
Watson and his slightly sarcastic comments
What was one of the most memorable moments of Warlock Holmes - A Study in Brimstone?
A lot of Watson's observations. Too many to mention
Any additional comments?
Downright silly at times, a little weak in spots. A very silly Holmes and a quite sarcastic Watson.I soon found myself interested in finding out how and what twists had been made to the original stories. The continuation boggles the mind and I am waiting for the next installment. No matter how silly it will get.

If Conan Doyle and HP Lovecraft got drunk and wrote a book.
I initially thought it would be a single story rather than a collection of short stories. Not that I minded, it worked fine.
Don’t really expect anything Holmes like. It is clearly a parody and the supernatural element drops it firmly in Lovecraftian waters at times, which isn’t a bad thing. It is well written though especially the use of Victorian language and the period feel. It is also narrated excellently.
For a bit of light relief this is recommended an enjoyable parody, well written. I have certainly read a lot worse. I will most likely read the next book in the series.
