    1. Since Sir Arthur created Sherlock Holmes, they have been many incarnation of him. I think Paul D Gilberts work is the closest to the original. Through this book Gilbert shows Holmes at his best and worsts both mentally and physically. Sherlock also uses all the resources at his disposal bringing back a number of sud characters. I do not want to give anything away, but is you are a fan Sir Arthur's work, and appreciate continuity this is the book for you. Great job by Paul Gilbert, and thanks Spe [...]


    2. Of the many slight mentions of unrecorded tales in the Holmes stories, this particular one has inspired the most pastiches. I have three novels with this title(The Richard Boyer book does omit Sherlock Holmes and from the title) as well as several short stories in various pastiche collections).This one begins when Holmes is hired by an insurance company to investigate the Matilda Briggs incident. The clipper ship had drifted in forty miles and two days late from it's original date. The cargo, te [...]


    3. Excellent book! I really enjoyed the narrative style, combined with so many tales of Far Eastern culture. One man's quest became a compulsion and he changed over time, changed into something even his own son would not recognize.


    4. A strange ship is missing its crew and is sitting at an abandoned dock. One of the crew is dead. Later a man is found dead in the river. Also a young man is trying to find his father based on his letters he sent from Sumatra. Could this all tie together? The letters make for very exciting reading and the whole story falls together very nicely.


    5. Arthur Conan Doyle loved to drop hints about Sherlock Holmes stories that he never would write. Sherlock Holmes mentions the Giant Rat of Sumatra in "The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire" and this one sentence mention has fueled the imaginations of Sherlock Holmes pastiche writers ever since.Now, granted, with a title like Sherlock Holmes and The Giant Rat of Sumatra you wind up having certain expectations. Like Ratzilla coming out of the jungle to devour all those damn Victorian Englishmen. Seem [...]


    6. I'm not sure what I think. I have an illness that at times prevents me from reading at all, and other times makes it difficult to follow fiction. I was in the early stages of one of those fugues when I started great Rat , so had to lay it aside until later. It seemed kind of dry and lifeless in the early portion that I read, but this could well be me, not the book.


    7. fairly clever idea to tie in AC doyle's throw away line about the case of the giant rat of sumatra, and this stand alone doyle-like mystery. Evokes nicely the writing of doyle, and has a rip roaring story/action subplots, but the actual mystery/bad guys was fairly flat lined and not that believable


    8. This is the lamest Giant Rat ever. The second plot line of the missing Michael Collier seems like the hugest of coincidences & takes up the whole middle of the book. All Holmes & Watson seem to do is smoke & drink. It's well written but the plot needed a lot more work.


    9. A very good read. Holmes and Watson seem go smoke and drink a lot but regardless I was kept hooked until the very end. I look forward to reading more Holmes books by this author.
