The book is full of easter eggs for the real nerds among us but stands on it's own even if you don't catch all the references. There's lots of action, most of it silly, all of it entertaining.
If I'm being honest, the name-dropping didn't do much for me. I thought the Doyle character had some funny Sherlock references, but the book would have been just as good with all-original characters. Thankfully, the name-dropping isn't all that's on offer and doesn't diminish the enjoyability.
If you're looking for a light read that's well-written you could do much worse. The author's prose is of the work-horse variety. There's nothing long-winded in the book, no reaching for great existential revelations. There's just strong, action-driven sentences that get the job done. Peppered in between are some terrific one-liners that are sure to at least draw a chuckle.
