I really enjoyed this, but I felt like the story got concluded a little too quickly. It was fun to see Sherlock Holmes as an old man though!

Did I just read poetry? I don't get it. The Boy is a jerk, but Bruno loves him anyways... is that it? Old Sherlock Holmes is kinda dumb? If there wasn't a war on, they coulda just asked and then I wouldn't have needed to read this book?

Good little story. Would have been better had Michael Chabon paid a little more attention to the flow of the plot and a little less time finding obscure synonyms for every other word in the book.

For the first time in a very many years, he felt the old vexation, the mingled impatience and pleasure at the world's beautiful refusal to yield up its mysteries without a fight.
