Imitating Holmes

Sherlock Holmes and The Baker Street Irregulars: Stuart Chronicle - Tracy Mack & Michael Citrin

holmesDo you hate when someone change and you don't know who they are anymore. Well, that exactly waht I fell when a fiction character has re-written by another people beside the original writer. No matter how good the new writer wrote the character, it is just not feel right. Beside, if s/he really good, why doesn't s/he write her/his own character rather than using some old famous one.

This is one of those book. Holmes and Watson without Doyle. Nothing classic about it. No suprising twisted. No glorious moments of truth. Holmes is rather puffy and Watson... well, Watson is almost invisible. It just a cheap story dobling up with the Sherlock greatness. Even of you are a BIG mystery reader, it's not worth the effort. Better read the old classic things.
