I wouldn't think twice about recommending this to any fan of Sherlock's...big or small. It's great fun imagining how you might do in lieu of, as, or pitted against, the legend Himself. It's exactly what it says it is though -- There's no denying that. Except, my only qualm (if you can even call it that) is you're left wanting something more, in a way; it's hard to explain. I think a good word might be "immersive"? Regardless it IS a very clever, unique, & enjoyable collection. And if I'm being honest, I genuinely caught myself [one too many times] with a big stupid grin stretched across my face. *This will never be the most luminous of books, but as a conductor of light, it's unbeatable!*
