    One of the great silent horror films crosses over with the world of Sherlock Holmes Gustav Caligari was a young man beset by his demons Unable to attend classes, he is tutored by a man named Hans Bruner Bruner introduces him to the idea of black magic Later, he studies to become a Doctor, purely for the money he will need to carry on with his real passion, murder Doctor Caligari flees from Prague, where he is suspected in the death of a young woman He sets up shop in London From this point One of the great silent horror films crosses over with the world of Sherlock Holmes Gustav Caligari was a young man beset by his demons Unable to attend classes, he is tutored by a man named Hans Bruner Bruner introduces him to the idea of black magic Later, he studies to become a Doctor, purely for the money he will need to carry on with his real passion, murder Doctor Caligari flees from Prague, where he is suspected in the death of a young woman He sets up shop in London From this point the story progresses much like the movie, but with a different drugged hypnotized accomplice.A girl is killed in London, and Holmes becomes involved The story is certainly well written, with great depth of characters and plot The constant battle between Holmes and Caligari rages throughout, and Caligari is a devious villain whose wits nearly match the Great Detective And Caligari knows exactly how to harm Holmes the worst I give the book five stars Quoth the Raven

    It was a decent book, but not the best, in my opinion At first I was really excited to read another version of Sherlock Holmes, since I already read most of the original ones, but was a bit disappointed What I like about mystery books is that you can try to solve them with hidden hints in the story and get hooked until the end, but in the very first chapter it tells you the murderer Not only that, but it says almost all the murderer s plans, which made it pretty boring to read My opinion, at It was a decent book, but not the best, in my opinion At first I was really excited to read another version of Sherlock Holmes, since I already read most of the original ones, but was a bit disappointed What I like about mystery books is that you can try to solve them with hidden hints in the story and get hooked until the end, but in the very first chapter it tells you the murderer Not only that, but it says almost all the murderer s plans, which made it pretty boring to read My opinion, at least

    A great entry in the new Sherlock Holmes tales An evil genius is able to mesmerise a homeless person and then commit murders Holmes and the cops are at a loss as to who they are.A rousing tale that puts Watson in a unique situation and a twist at the end.Another Good Read

    Interesting read, though definitely got rather dark at times.

  8. Calvin Daniels says:

    A very 2.75 The story plodded forward with barely a twist that a Holmes fans won t see coming well ahead of things, but being a quick read saved it.
