One thought on “Sherlock Holmes in America

  1. Eric

    In one word: Underwhelming.Many of these stories were too intricately interwoven with Holmes' canon (most notably A Study in Scarlet and The Valley of Fear) for the casual reader to enjoy, but at the same time, the mysteries in these short stories were so elementary -- if existent at all -- that the serious Holmes fan could not have any appreciation for them. Many of the stories seemed more preoccupied with guest appearances by famous historical Americans, such as Doc Holliday, Davy Crockett, Te [...]

  2. Amy Sturgis

    On the whole this is a far better than average collection of Sherlockian stories. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how the different authors opted to bring Holmes to the States while respecting Conan Doyle's canon. The best tales here are excellent, most are good, and few are disappointments.Lyndsay Faye's "The Case of Colonel Warburton's Madness" tackles one of the canonical unchronicled cases with great success, underscoring not only Holmes's impressive deductive abilities, but also Watson's inhere [...]

  3. Riju Ganguly

    Enough to send you raving back to tha canon to savour the exquisite taste of sanity. Good for one (and singularly singular) read only. Therefore, my humble recommendation would be to get it from nearby library.

  4. Tinneal

    I’m beginning to notice a trend of short-story collections putting their strongest stories at the beginning of the collection, which get’s my hopes up, only to find that the stories become less and less enjoyable as it goes on. This collection was no exception. I enjoyed reading the various interpretations of Holmes, Watson, and Mycroft by the various authors who contributed to this collection. Some chose to make Holmes love America, and some chose to make him despise it. The Case of Colonel [...]

  5. Patty

    ”Some readers may balk at finding the Great Detective uprooted from his familiar Baker Street digs, but we believe we are playing the game according to Doyle” p. viI am not a purist when it comes to Holmes. I read and enjoy all of Laurie R. King’s novels and she has Sherlock married to a much younger woman. I have read other stories that feature Holmes and as long as they are well told, I am happy.So for most of my listening, I had a great time with this collection. The fourteen stories ar [...]

  6. Monica Willyard

    I gave this book another chance, so I'm editing my review. I enjoyed it thoroughly this time through and think the reason I couldn't get into it before was that things in my life weren't going very well at the time. This time, I really enjoyed the stories, the humor, and seeing how Sherlock homes viewed America. It's definitely worth reading. I'm leaving my first review here so you can see where I started from. It is no longer accurate. I had trouble getting into parts of this book. It just didn [...]

  7. Meaghan

    I admit to being rather disappointed with this book. I was looking for some creativity from the various authors, but found an astounding amount of dullness. A couple of the stories used the theme of "A Study in Scarlet" and had Holmes travelling to America to tie up loose ends in Utah from that case. Although I didn't mind the concept, I think that the stories themselves could have been more interesting. Another of the stories had Holmes in America as part of a travelling troupe of actors. Again [...]

  8. Matt Kuhns

    For the newcomer or casual fan, this book is best passed up for something else; read a volume of the original stories or, if having done that, an annotated edition. For the student of moderate or greater interest, however, Sherlock Holmes in America is worth reading for a couple of reasons.The first is that a handful of the tales are quite good. The volume starts out quite well, in fact, before devolving into a heap of largely unmemorable, indistinct "Holmes somewhere in America doing something" [...]

  9. R.L.

    I thought I'd never finish reading this book. For some reason, it just seemed to drag for me. Maybe it's because the whole idea of finding a way to get Sherlock Holmes to the U.S. might have been fun for one or two stories, but after 8 or 10, the novelty wore off. The stories, taken individually, aren't bad. Almost all of the authors did a good job of evoking the Holmes/Watson ambiance. But:

  10. Matt

    I was disappointed in this collection. The various authors have Holmes travel to Texas, Utah, New York, the Northeast, and other parts of the USA. While some are follow ups to typical canon stories like Study in Scarlet and Valley of Fear, several others are more examples of forcing Holmes to meet famous Americans like Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, Amos Alonzo Stagg, and Harry Houdini. There are some decent stories placing Holmes in Chicago, but this was not nearly as good as I had hoped

  11. Dave Hay

    Would have given up on this, were it not audio. Do enjoy the Sherlock Holmes stories, but only find the ACD credible. These new stories are only for those who have read, re-read and re- read the originals. Modern writing has more of a sting in the tail, these fail

  12. Mandaray

    Overall I felt this was a mediocre effort. Very few of the short stories within managed to capture what I believe is the essence of a Holmes story, and on top of that they also didn't do a very good job of communicating the feeling of an 1800's America. Far too many hook in to the somewhat unfinished events of A Study in Scarlet, borrowing the name of Jefferson Hope without acknowledging the genuine terror and disgust at Mormon practices of the time, or of the deeply personal trials those charac [...]

  13. Rich

    I enjoyed this book on a part time (off and on) basis and didn't read all sections, they weren't all for me, but most were. I do recommend it to those who are 'grabbed' by the title. I'll keep my copy for a later re-read. Enjoy!

  14. Greg Stoll

    It's hard to have an interesting mystery that fits in a short story, but it was interesting to see Sherlock Holmes stories set in America.

  15. Luci

    As with any short story collection, there were definitely hits and losers. None of the stories were particularly memorable but it was a short and somewhat entertaining read.

  16. Tiffany

    Overall an excellent read if you enjoy Sherlock Holmes; a review of previous original works might be helpful :)

  17. Treva

    Short stories where Sherlock and oftentimes Watson were in the US in the late 1800's. Interesting but not great.

  18. Richard Brylczyk

    A collection of short stories by different authors. Some were excellent; others not so much.

  19. K. O'Bibliophile

    The last time I read a story featuring Holmes in America, it was a horribly slow, dull affair with badly-written characters and so excruciating I avoided for years any other Holmes stories set in America for fear they might share the same qualities. (Sherlock Holmes and the Red Demon, your legacy is a sad one.)So I had very little hope when I found this hiding at the end of a library shelf, you understand. That might have helped, in a way: I probably enjoyed the stories more because I wasn't loo [...]

  20. Becca

    This was great fun-- I giggled madly at the Holmesian in-jokes and the sly canonical winks and nods in these stories. The great detective is dropped into gangland Chicago, into Wyatt Earp's Wild West, into polygamist Utah, Buffalo Bill's World's Fairground, Roosevelt's NYC, new age San Diego, pre-earthquake San Francisco, Baltimore, and Texas. These authors imagine Holmes as an tough undercover Irish boxer, a spoilt vacationer, a slightly ridiculous cat-lover, an actor, an altruistic opera fan, [...]

  21. Jean

    Anthologies generally take longer for me to finish because the stories don't connect and there isn't that "I must find out what happens next" effect. This was an uneven anthology with generally good stories, but the ones that didn't ring true really threw me. There are fourteen stories, three essays, and an introduction. My least favorite was Daniel Stashower's "The Seven Walnuts" where Sherlock Holmes doesn't even appear. I like Houdini, but I felt cheated. On the other hand, Victoria Thompson' [...]

  22. Chris

    A somewhat uneven collection of stories. Most follow the pattern of the original, narrated by Watson. Several fail to capture the voice rather disappointingly. One is narrated by Houdini's brother (it seems work) and another by Holmes himself (the voice is fairly good, the story a bit flat). I don't know why the last two entries are literary analysis/criticism; I could have lived without them. Overall I enjoyed it, it was time well spent. I can't comment on the book, however, without noting the [...]

  23. Rena Sherwood

    A very uneven collection of short stories, essays and one novella about what might have happened had Holmes crossed the Pond. Some of these stories appear in other Sherlock Holmes pastiche short story collections. Nothing is very memorable. I'm scratching my head now trying to remember a single story.It does contain two or three essays. (See? My brain can't even be bothered to remember how many. I had to look up an online review to remember it even HAD essays.) One by Doyle himself about his imp [...]

  24. Carol Waller

    If you know the ACD Sherlock stories inside and out, you may like these If you are a casual fan who comes to Sherlock via Downey/Law movies or Cumberbatch/Freeman/Moffat TV series, you may not be as pleased. These took the stories as their base, and stay fairly close to canon, in tone and style. Content wanders a bit, but this isn't ACD's London either. There is a lot of repeating as it is different authors, so they are probably best read a few at a time, rather than the book at once. But the en [...]

  25. Holly Booms Walsh

    A mixed bag of short "Sherlock Holmes visits America" themed stories by different authors. All are set in 19th century America. Some of these were better than others, as is the case with most short story collections. Lyndsay Faye's "The Case of Colonel Warburton's Madness" was an enjoyable tale more about Watson than Holmes. Steve Hockensmith's "Excerpts from an Unpublished Memoir Found in the Basement of the Home for Retired Actors" was hilarious, portraying a young Holmes as an actor in a trav [...]

  26. Tim Hicks

    Meh. Nearly all the stories seem forced and implausible, although they all had their moments. I'd recommend this only for people who have to read EVERYthing about Holmes. The last story, by music critic Michael Walsh, is followed by a semi-scholarly analysis about ACD's anti-Hibernian sentiment. That analysis seems to try too hard to make all available data fit his theories. But it also helped me understand my sense of unease while reading the story. It also tried too hard, because I think he wr [...]

  27. Bill

    I enjoyed most of the stories in this book, but it is up and down, and unfortunately it seemed to go down hill at the end. The last couple of stories were the weakest and the story or monograph about anti-Irish elements of Doyles work did not seem to belong in this collection. I did not see what it had to do with Holmes in America. And the final story, which is a prequel to the Doyle story, His Last Bow, had hardly any of the deductive elements that make Sherlock Sherlock and even has him fooled [...]

  28. Cindy

    I liked this collection a lot. At first, I can misgivings about people contributing to the Sherlock Holmes canon, but I thought the authors did an exceptional job. Most could mimic Doyle's style almost perfectly, and many understand what Doyle was trying to do with his stories and could contribute to it well. A few, such as the last story in which Sherlock falls in love with Miss McParland, seemed the least like Sherlock as he was very emotional and out of control. I also found it silly at times [...]
