    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesSo this is all about the young Mycroft Holmes written by Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse I don’t know enough to comment on the contribution of each author but if the 7ft 2 68 year old record scoring basketball player is the main writer then hats off to the guy he’s done a pretty good job The story is set in 1870 Mycroft Holmes is 23 and proficiently working his way up the ranks in the Secretary of State’s office it's an interesting period in British history where they had many protectorates and territories around the world and for the main part the story is based in Trinidad Sherlock is still at school and we meet him briefly in the library of all places a snapshot of the brother’s dysfunctional relationship as Mycroft takes his leave before his voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean Mycroft has his own Watson on board he's not a doctor though he's a tobacco salesman best friend and confidante Cyrus Dougl

    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesI was aware that being a successful author was just one of the many things keeping KAJ busy post retirement from the NBA but this is the last book I expected him to write Mycroft Holmes has everything that a great Mystery should A great supporting cast and a story that keeps you reading until the end I didn't enjoy this characterization of a young Mycroft as much as I thought I should perhaps this is because I am so used to the mature version of the character as showcased in the original sto

    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesI am a major Sherlock Holmes fan I have read every one of the Arthur Conan Doyle tales and many of the tributes aka “Pastiches” writtenby others since then Not surprisingly none of them ever rise to the euivalent of the original but there have been some noble attempts In Mycroft Holmes written by Kareem Abdul Jabbar yes that Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse the authors do a very wise move They avoid the imposing Sherlock and concentrate on his smarter and older brother Mycroft Sherlock does appear but only for a brief chapter Mycroft only appears in four stories by Doyle In this reworking we are introduced to a younger Mycroft when he is still in good physical health and he hasn’t developed his phobia about

    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesFans of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes will enjoy this glimpse into the young life of his old brother Mycroft Holmes Mycroft has recently graduated from Cambridge and at the age of 23 he is secretary to the Secretary of WarI found the plot the settings and the characters to be authentic to the tone of the Holmes' saga A thoroughly enjoyable reading experience I would be only too happy to learn KAJ is writing a second book and perhaps even

    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesI was than a little surprised that Kareem Abdul Jabbar had written a Holmsian mystery not that I've followed the basketball star or had any idea about what his personal interests were I did wonder if it might be one of those booksyou know the oneswhere the famous person gets a book deal and the book gets a lot of publicity and sells well but the content of the actual book is rather lackluster I'm happy to report this wasn't one of those booksThe novel has two very likeable protagonists an adventurous story with an interesting mystery and a little dose of humor here and there I really enjoyed the two main characters Mycroft and his best friend Cyrus Douglas The pair travel to Cyrus's childhood home in Trinidad due to his concern for his family and talk that people are

    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesIf this book was a movie it would be a bad B movie The plot dialogue and scenes lack imagination and bear all the marks of what is trite Other than the name Holmes it has no resemblance to a Holmesian taleThe story is about Sherlock’s older brother Mycroft and therein lies another problem The authors make Mycroft out to be like Sherlock a man of action a man that rides into the fray a man who boxes he even gives Sherlock a boxing lesson I don’t like it when someone writes a fanfiction story and changes the character that the original author created; although if the book is good this is not so annoying to me According to Arthur Conan Doyle Mycroft is nothing like his younger brother from the point of view of physical activity though he is Sherlock’s eual in intelligence and powers of observation and deduction

    Reader × Mycroft Holmes º Hardcover Download ´ Connecfloor Mycroft HolmesIn essence this is a preuel to what we know of Sherlock Holmes' older brother Mycroft I started out thinking it was going to be a straightforward historical mystery possibly with some supernatural elements Ultimately though it was a much deeper story with commentary on social justice of the time and nothing supernaturalThe locales of London and the West Indies mostly Trinidad provide a colorful and diverse background Mycroft and his sidekick Cyrus Douglas are smart and inventive Although Mycroft often smacks of twenty something ego Douglas' older wiser viewpoint balances his naïveté and impulsiveness I
