    1 thought on “The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Star of India

    1. This book couldn’t be any more pedestrian if it was crossing The Strand in comfortable shoes whilst carrying shopping bags. To say the prose is prosaic is almost a compliment. There is nothing at all exciting about the prose, in fact it doesn’t even aim for excitement – its base level is ‘mundane’ and it hits it with painful persistence right the way through. But most disappointing is how simple it all is. You don’t need to be a genius consulting detective to recognise the bad guys h [...]

    2. THE STAR OF INDIA. (1997). Carole Bugge. ***.The title of the book reveals a lot ahead of time: we know India is involved; we also know that a famour jewel is involved. The jewel is a gigantic sapphire that was given to the Prince of Wales by an Indian prince as a token of his favor. Before the gift can be made, however, it disappears. Holmes becomes involved in finding it to ward off an international incident. He also learns that his arch-enemy Moriarty is involved in the theft, and two again c [...]

    3. I am not a Sherlockian or a Holmesian, having read the entire canon only once and a long time ago. That said, this is one great tale. It has all the elements of a Doyle story: deduction; the neurotic detective--who actually becomes introspective for once--the stalwart, if slightly dim, sidekick/biographer; the evil genius; the femme fatal; the Gordian knot of a problem; and the fate of the British Empire in the balance.The plot moves quickly, and Bugge` fills the pages with great details of 19th [...]

    4. October, 1894. Nothing of interest is stalking the streets of London and Sherlock Holmes is plagued by ennui so Doctor Watson, having noticed his friend ominously eyeballing his cocaine stash, suggests an evening jaunt to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Unfortunately for Watson, his enjoyment of the Saint-Saens third violin concerto is hampered by the exotically pungent perfume worn by the young lady seated in front of him. While Watson battles his allergies, Sherlock Holmes spots that there [...]

    5. Once again, Sherlock Holmes has sunk into a deep ennui. Evidently there is no crime in England at this time, or at least, none which appeals to his crime-solving genius. Home alone, with Mrs. Hudson visiting her sister in Cornwall, the novel opens with a visit from Dr. John Watson, with an invitation to attend a musical concert. Et voila! A mystery begins as Holmes and Watson take their seats. It seems that a young lady with a very distinct perfume captures their attention (in fact, Watson is al [...]

    6. I hate myself a little after reading this book, because over the past year or so I’ve checked it out on 3 or 4 separate occasions, and just now got around to reading it. And it was amazing—everything I love about a Sherlock Holmes story. A solid mystery, brimming suspense, a gripping showdown with arch-nemesis Moriarty, and of course the oh so glorious bromance (!). I loved everything about this pastiche, and hate that I put it off for so long.

    7. An adequate, unremarkable imitation of a Sherlock Holmes novel. It's a decent effort - a nice inoffensive story that serves to pass the time - but the end result isn't up to the standards set by the original works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This is the first Sherlock Holmes novel I've ever read where I was able to figure out the majority of the mystery long before Holmes did. I'd like to think it's because I am so much wiser as I enter into middle age than I ever was as a bright eyed youth devou [...]

    8. Attention, Sherlockians: Don't miss this one! I have read many SH pastiches and this is one of the best. The "voices" of the main characters(except for a bit of profanity by Watson and one instance of Holmes asking a question of Lestrade he should and could have deduced the answer to)are excellent. Throw in extra time with Mrs. Hudson, Inspector Lestrade, that certain villain (?!) and the entertaining plot and you've got a winner here.

    9. Holmes storyWhile not as good as another Holmes book of hers I read previously, it is still an enjoyable Holmes and Watson story. I did not like part where Holmes is telling all his feelings to Watson. I don't think this is how Sherlock Holmes sees himself. I can overlook all the references to reforms that should be made even though they seem to stand out as obviously added by the author.

    10. I picked this book up thinking it was an original Arthur Conan Doyle. Alas, it is part of a new set of books with new Sherlock adventures in them.I almost immediately realised my mistake as the writing style was all wrong, the characters see through and the plot was just plain awful.I guess if you're desperate for a new Sherlock Holmes fix, then try this book, otherwise just stick to the old classics.

    11. I'm really into Sherlock and all its various TV iterations including Elementary.So it only seemed natural to explore some current Sherlockian tales.This one had everything going for it including people pretending to be someone else, including Sherlock as usual. A rare gemstone with global impacts. Watson as usual.And a big twist at the end.Recommended

    12. Part of the new adventures series. We have here the return of Moriarty to vex the recently returned Holmes. A good story and for the most part a good series by well known and some not so well known authors.

    13. Sherlock Holmes is out of copyright, so Carole Bugge is continuing with the Holmes/Watson stories. I liked this first one.
