I bought this as adult, because I always loved the "choose your own adventure books" as a kid and I love Sherlock Holmes. The problem, it was way too easy. It took me 20 minutes to solve all 3 adventures. Also, the first book came damaged, as did the second. I sent them both back. If you have a kid who likes mysteries, then they might enjoy this, but if you're an adult and a Sherlock fan, give it a pass.

I remember reading many Choose Your Own Adventure books as a child so I thought it would be fun to review one as an adult. In this book you are Sherlock Holmes and trying to solve the mysteries. I learned that I’m a lousy detective! There are 3 mysteries to solve in this book that have been adapted from the original 12 mysteries in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I didn’t solve even one of them correctly on the first or even second try. Although I’m obviously not cut out for detective work I did enjoy reading this book and will be passing it on to my 9 year old son who I am sure will turn out to be a better crime solver than I am. I’m sure he’ll end up on the dreaded page 68 much less often than I did!

This book would likely be a hit with reluctant readers especially middle grade boys.

I've loved `Choose Your Adventure' books even since I could understand what they were, though unfortunately they don't make as many as I'd like. And I haven't read one in years, as they're mainly geared toward elementary school kids. But this Sherlock Holmes edition is one I think can be enjoyed by a variety of ages, because while the wording is simple enough to be understood by children, the themes and stories can be appreciated by teens and adults as well.

I breezed through this book, finishing the entire thing in just over an hour. I loved being able to go back again and again to choose different paths for myself, because I seem to have a knack for making exactly the wrong decisions. Maybe I wouldn't be such a great detective after all.

What I love about this is that you're actually Sherlock Holmes, because the book is written in second person. That means `you' are being addressed, so you're also given responsibility for your life. (And Watson's, sometimes. I have to apologize because I ended up killing him, more than once.)

It's simple good fun. Nothing deep or dragging about it, which I actually liked. And the three stories involved are actually based off Sherlock Holmes tales. So if you need to get someone to start reading classic literature, this is one way to start them on it.

in a sentence or so: a choose your path book where you get to be one of the most famous detectives of all time. choose carefully because surprises, and danger, lurk around every turn.

you're in a strange room in your uncle's house, spending yet another night trying to power through that stupid math homework.

seriously. math is the worst.

and then, quite unexpectedly, you find yourself in the place of the famed Detective Holmes. Watson briefs you on three cases that need the good inspector's eye. two of them are innocent enough...but one of them is a trap that just may cost you and Watson your lives. will you be able to make the right choices to solve the cases and save your lives?

man, i forgot how fun Choose Your Own Path books can be. this was a super fun book with legit mystery and detective skills. while obviously a middle-grade book, this is certainly one i could bust out with friends and have fun with.

and of course, i cheated like crazy. i died no less than 6 times.

for a fresh and fun way to experience Sherlock Holmes, i definitely recommend this book! it's a great one to enjoy with friends or kiddos.

fave quote: "Anything is better than math homework." (7)

fix er up: nothing. this was quick and fun and just right!
