    1. This wasn't terrible as far as pastiches go. It was entertaining enough, though not a lot of mystery or deductions. More action-y than anything. I was slightly disappointed there weren't a whole bunch of murders, considering the title. I was thinking it would be a "Seven"-style serial killer whose murders were based on Alice in Wonderland. And that is not at ALL what this is. (I never read cover copy, so I guess that's my own fault.) Also, the canon references are really forced. Okay, and the ed [...]


    2. Listened to this in audiobook format. The narrator was a little bit fast for my liking. If you're looking to read a Sherlock Holmes novel for the adventure and thrill of the hunt rather than mystery-solving, this is a decent book. There's barely any deducing done by Holmes for the main part of the story, and Three Continents!Watson appears if you like him in that persona. The book peppered with many a reference taking directly from the Sherlock canon, probably in an attempt to write in a Doyle-e [...]


    3. The rabbit holeThe story is well written and the characters very much in keeping with the original author. If you know your Alice in Wonderland this tale is a great romp. Sherlock is in fine form and Watson keeps the narrative flowing. There is a damsel in distress, Mycroft makes an appearance along with Lestrade. To say more will ruin the tale. It's a quick read, ends well and leaves the door open for another day.


    4. A rather peurile story of Nessie Hunting amongst other improbables, and a dodgy newspaper magnate; won't necessarily be looking for others in the series.-----


    5. Not bad as pastiches go. Interesting story and the depiction of Watson is good. Holmes seems to drift a bit during the book between a great depiction and a really bad one. Else this would be a five star review.
