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.
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!
