Going #Was The Plot But #The Plot But the plot but in a good way You Agricultural Engineering know how you find yourself mesmerized by something so horrific you can t believe it That s this book Just when you think the author has reached the lowest point he can possibly go the floor drops out and he finds a whole new level of lowDoes it annoy you when a character conveniently forgets an important very important appointmentDoes drive you insane when a character forgets where heshe put the most important papers in hisher lifeWhat about when someone justnows something because heshe is so blamed cleverIf these are the types of plot because heshe is so blamed cleverIf these are the types of plot you hate you ll find them all and in this mess Just a note that the only thing Sherlockian about this mystery is the premise As a leaseholder of 221B Baker Street the law offices of Reggie Heath are reuired to answer letters addressed to Mr Sherlock Holmes and occasionally those addressed to Mrs Hudson and Dr John Watson They were to use only the form letters or lose their leaseReggie gave the task to his brother Nigel while Nigel s license was suspended Nigel somewhat hapless becomes intrigued by a set of letters the first originally sent by an eight year old girlNow twenty years later letters from this girl or at least so it seems Nigel decides to investigate and that decision leads him to miss his reinstatement hearing much to the dismay and irritation of his brother And that is only the beginning of dismay as both brothers are embroiled in murders in Los Angeles and London As they say the game is afootThis was a pretty good book The mystery well mysteries were complicated and not obvious a hallmark of a well plotted mystery I liked this enough to seek out the next one I think my problem with it is that I don t find either brother particularly interesting or noble for want of a better world I think they are both fine examples of what a confusing place this post modern world is for young intelligent professional men 25 starsThe basis of the novel is rather interesting but the writing is a bit awkward and stilted there seemed to be a lot of He did this Then he did this He went here They went there Rather reminiscent of a Dick and Jane book only with grown up words However it doesn t surprise me that the book s been optioned for a television series Hollywood seems to have a nose for mediocre works I just hope it gets tweaked a bit before it goes into production the mystery was fairly well done but the characters were blah and the story beyond the initial Sherlock Holmes premise wasn t that exciting Speaking of a Sherlock Holmes premise in that the story revolved around a letter sent to that famous detective which Distant Echoes Finding Keys To Life After Abuse kicks off the action in the story I was rather expecting the tale to take place somewhere in the UK not in LA I guess having a stateside setting allowed Robertson to easily take advantage of his lazy generalizations concerning the American characters in his book Now I m not a flaming patriot I get upset uite freuently with America s blunders and often wish our social and governmental systems were run effectively and efficiently However Robertson paints all his American characters as selfish suspicious greedy and generally ignorant of anything outside their small sphere of influence I might agree with that last generalization which could apply to almost any human being regardless of country of origin however while we all suffer to some degree from one or all of the other traits I find it hard to believe that Robertson s main character didn t run into at least one nice helpful and generous individual even in LA It seemed rather an amateurish writing error if I wrote a novel set in England and portrayed all the characters within as upper crust white tea drinking public school educated Margaret Thatcher wannabes there would certainly be some backlash over such stereotypingIt s possible his second book is a vast improvement over his first however as of this moment I really have very little.

This was a disappointment I didn t finish itThe description of the book made it sound like there was a big Sherlock Holmes connection but really the only involvement of Holmes is the fact that the offices one of the main characters leases is on Baker Street and people write letters to Sherlock at that address The owner of the building reuires anyone who rents the premises to respond to the letters with a form letter response So the misleading suggestion of a Holmes connection was the first disappointmentThe second disappointment was the characters not one of the ones introduced in the first third of the story which was as far as I could stand to read was at all likeable or even interesting to me and couldn t manage to work up any interest whatsoever about what might happen to themFinally this was presented as a mystery and I suppose if you REALLY stretched you could call the fact that one of the main characters becomes interested enough in one of the letters to Holmes to drop everything and run off to LA to try to find the grown woman who when she was eight years old 20 years ago wrote a letter to HolmesThe problem is that virtually nothing happens in the first third of the book There s some set up of the two brothers who are the main characters but it s too much detail and it is dull as dirt so maybe the rest of the book gets exciting but I wasn t willing to waste reading time risking that hope Though it s not uite up to the standards of Arthur Conan Doyle this is a pretty well written and interesting mystery story Some of the plots were a little confusing but overall a good story I am afraid that I have to admit to liking this story because of the narrator telling it than for the story itself Until almost the end of the story I did not care that much about the main character I liked his brother right from the beginning and his girlfriend too Reggie was just too much He seemed to be very arrogant and self centered He seemed to be his brother s How Debuggers Work Algorithms Data Structures and Architecture keeper litterally and very condecending about it As the story unfolded I became a little understanding and realized that what he was doing was not so condecending and that he really did love his brother This is a murder mystery centered around the story of a letter written by an eight year old girl and addressed to Sherlock Holmes twenty years before the story takes placeReggie s company has leased rooms in a building on Baker Street in London Part of the lease agreement is that his company take over managing letters that are addressed to Sherlock Holmes co Baker Street He had to assign someone to take over opening the mail and sending a form letter back to the person sending the mail All of the letters wereept and filed He had assigned his brother to this task This is where the story line startsNigel is waiting to talk to his brother about some letters that he is concerned about Reggie doesn talk to his brother about some letters that he is concerned about Reggie doesn really listen The next morning he gets to the office and finds
brother has gone to Angeles California and there is a dead man in his brother s completely trashed officeReggie follows Nigel to LA and as the story unfolds gets into lots of trouble and he and his brother are almost illed I mentioned in one of my early status updates that some of the lines were very funny They were to me but I could not tell if it was the way the narrator was saying them or if that is the way they were actually written I am still not sure but I think it was intentional both on the part of the narrator Simon Vance and by the author I am looking forward to listening to the next story Reggie the main character is pompous over bearing rude and not too bright a lawyer who doesn t take the time to read a rental contract Gimme a breakReggie s brother Nigel is pathetic ineffectual Whiney And UselessLaura Reggie and uselessLaura Reggie girl friend is shallow too intuitive to be believable and prone to what is supposed to pass for witty banter but only varies between annoying and inaneIf it had not been for the plot I would have called it Baker Street Wikipdia Baker Street est une rue de la cit de Westminster dans le centre de Londres Elle est connue mondialement du fait ue l'crivain britanniue Sir Arthur Conan Doyle a fait rsider ses hros de fiction Sherlock Holmes et le Docteur Watson chez Mrs Hudson au premier tage du B Baker Street Gerry Rafferty Baker Street Long Version YouTube Enjoy the videos and music you love upload original content and share it all with friends family and the world on YouTube Baker Street Wikipedia The Baker Street Cordova Cebu | Facebook The Baker Street Cordova Cebu likes talking about this The Baker Street recipe's aren't intended to get you think outside the box they're just plain delicious topped with premium Baker Street chanson Wikipdia Baker Street est une chanson de Gerry Rafferty son titre vient d'une rue de Glasgow en cosse Baker Street Elle fait partie du deuxime album de Gerry Rafferty City to City enregistr en Sortie en single en elle a atteint la place de no aux tats Unis ue faire Londres?

Old Story I Look story I look to reading others from this seriesAudiobook Comments I enjoyed the narration though there were some mispronunciations as the British reader did an American accent ie Me thane opposed to Meth ane but overall good bookYouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading I was lucky and enjoyed this as an audio almost completely in one sitting I thought the audio was well done and the story was entertaining However I can see a lot of the same issues that others complained about There were many plot parts I had a tough time believing that an attorney wouldn t fully read a contract before signing but I was able to overlook a lot of that for just sheer entertainment value I enjoyed it Reading this has left me with a feeling that the book could ve been so much The premise was rather original but although the beginning was strong and intriguing the story becomes rather dull and increasingly unengaging meaning there s mainly tell instead of show Also albeit that the idea was original the actual connection to Sherlock Holmes turns out to be only flimsy which I didn t mind too much never having been a great fan of this fictional character or the novels but I can see how people who are would feel misled or disappointed even after reading this So all in all it s hard not to come away from this book thinking the plot could ve been so much exciting and well of a mystery than it actually wasAs for the main character Reggie who came off as a pompous ass well let me just say that having worked with lawyers for uite some time now he was a real believable character and conseuently it didn t matter to me he wasn t particularly likeable I usually need to like at least one character or be able to relate to a character but in this case I just had to chuckle at Reggie s behaviour in general and his dry and sardonic commentary especially The best line of the book however went to his otherwise completely uninteresting love interest LauraLaura uestionRamirez YeahLaura You lighting a match while we are all in the tunnelRamirez YeahLaura I find fault with thatHowever shortly before that scene my interest had waned due to the mountain of exposition and the story itself becoming rather dull I don t see myself continuing this series even if I m just a smidge curious about any improvement on this first instalment275 star read I did enjoy this novel as a casual read but from a Sherlockian point of view it had much to be desired Actually the only thing that links this narritave to Sherlock Holmes is the Hook about the letters being addressed to him The science of deduction did not figure into the main Character s Reggie Heath problem solving plan at all Actually Heath made uite a mess of his investigation The story was mostly a cliche with him running all over LA trying to avoid the police while trying to figure out who to trust Also I figured out who the bad guy was way too earlyAnd the ending was unconclusive Hopefully the next book will wrap it up a little better.
