Great Britian's Nineteenth Century History,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Kindle Edition)
English history is served up along with the amazing mystery stories. I enjoy the pictures of daily life...the maid bringing in lunch to Holmes on a pre-arranged schedule, passing the street vendors and beggars, imagining the opium den frequented by addicts, vivid descriptions of period clothing, transportation and commerce slipped seamlessly into the tales. I read this often to refresh the imagery in my mind.
