Gotta say, I enjoyed this just as much as the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories, despite Meyer taking some liberties with the Holmes canon.

This was a well-written, true to Doyle's voice continuation of the Holmes/Watson partnership, but it also added some dimension to their relationship, as well as building on to Holmes' past.

I honestly thought this book was a one-off, so imagine my surprise to find out there's two more to read, and a fourth volume coming in Oct 2019.

I'll eagerly read them all. ( )

Billed as “a reprint from the reminiscences of John H. Watson, MD, as edited by Nicholas Meyer”, this book tells the real story of “The Final Problem”, and this story involves a collaboration between Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud. This was utterly delightful and imaginative, and it really captures the tone of the Holmes stories. It has a nice balance of thoughtful deduction and cinema-worthy action pieces (the scene on the steam train comes to mind). This makes me want to read the originals again! I will also look for more of Meyer’s pastiches. ( )

When I first read this, I was super pumped up for it. Sherlock Holmes? Train chases? That was IT. However, now all I can think about is that this book has Freud in it. Gross. ( )

You need to be a Sherlock fan to properly appreciate. Nicolas Meyer marries several fan theories to see what the result looks like in narrative, capped with a brief mystery for Sherlock to solve. From the standpoint of fan service, Nicholas Meyer did his homework and delivers several favourite elements, while inserting other things in passing that he helpfully highlights with "see what I did there?" footnotes. From the standpoint of a reader (e.g. myself) lacking in Sherlock knowledge, it was only sporadically engaging and the mystery feels tacked on. I didn't find the drug rehabilitation very convincing (Sherlock is magically relapse-resistant). Freud's appearance was possibly the best element for me, not a spoiler so much as an open secret. As a Star Trek fan I'm glad this novel was successful enough for Meyer to win Hollywood's attention, and I'm happy for him that he could follow it up with several sequels. ( )

This is my second Holmes pastiche, after the equally unrewarding [b:The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes: The Adventures of the Great Detective in India and Tibet|76193|The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes The Adventures of the Great Detective in India and Tibet|Jamyang Norbu|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1312032076s/76193.jpg|1271908], and each one requires a large suspension of disbelief to stomach through.

The plot, such as it is, twists itself around at the beginning and at the end to try and fit into the accepted Holmes timeline, but to give more away would count as a spoiler. The actual mystery is solved easily enough, but Holmes walks Watson and Freud through each step of his thinking process at various points in the book to explain his thoughts in great detail, which is uncharacteristic to say the least. The only saving grace here is the tone of the book, which is a passable impersonation of Arthur Conan Doyle's writing style.

At the end of the day, reading this book was like eating a twinkie, it looks somewhat appealing, but you start regretting your decision as soon as you bite into it, and it does not leave a good aftertaste.

Introduction: 

For many years it was my good fortune to witness, chronicle, and in some instances to assist my friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, in a number of the cases which were submitted to him in his unique capacity as a consulting detective.
As I stated in the preamble to "The Final Problem," my marriage and my subsequent start in private practise wrought a subtle but definite alteration in the pattern of my friendship with Sherlock Holmes.

This is the book The Seven-per-cent Solution. It should not be combined with the film; do not be misled by the fact that the author of this book also wrote the film's screenplay.
