4.0 su 5 stelle a sherlock for the BBC. with good timing 17 luglio 2016

nice reviews. oops: cover is not Steranko(Sherlock' original and very first artist was : Doyle's dad). and the Siberian wolf looks not at all like that! the several mentions of temperature issues did confuse me a bit. It's a real cool novel - with many visuals that point to Hardwick's deep involvement in Sherlockian BBC productions: This can make a good movie. Not all Sherlockian movies have to have the super flash And budget of recent - excellent fun also - productions. This Sherlock is rather almost nice actually: Like the cool Sherlock played by Ian Richardson. This sherlock is compassionate to both high and low humans and animals. Funny: Themes are treated that we in 2016 are remembering: Industrialists squeezing too hard - today even moving factories to places to exploit workers even more. The politics of opportunistic Marxism or even anarchism, etc... deeply treated: Larger predator animals kept in cages. A solution for an owner is found - the London Zoo. Should have also given the lady work there, Mr Hardwick. I happen coincidentally to be rereading the Doyle originals: Hardwick did lots of hard work. I understand that Doyle was half-trance -channeling Sherlock. One day this original near-mystic force hopefully will find another channel to return in force. By the by: Sir Arthur also pulled things by their hair sometimes. Other new Holmesians also involve animals. In one a teen Sherlock groks a crow. Another: The writer gets into the thoughts of an African Great Grey parrot - trust me: a very remarkable creature. In another Holmes' bees are important. A wonderful movie indeed came out of this one: Mr Holmes.

The Revenge of the Hound

This 1987 novel by Michael Hardwick (based on "The Hound of the Baskervilles") is set in 1902, before the coronation of Edward VII and just after the end of the Boer War. [Adding these facts provides a background that was not needed in the original stories.] Watson has met his third wife (Chapter 1)! Aunt Henrietta pushes Coral on John, who shows her around London (Chapter 2). She is much younger and richer. Holmes considers retiring (Chapter 3)! Inspector Lestrade arrives late at night to tell about a hound at Hampstead that attacked a man. They all go to Hampstead Heath (Chapter 4). The victim of the attack lived to talk. But he secretly left the hospital (Chapter 5)! You learn about Tyburn Tree. [Hardwick is wrong to suggest the little princes were killed by Richard III, they stood in the way of the reign of Henry VII.] The excavation found three beheaded bodies (Chapter 6). Were there that many revolutionary sentiments then?

Mycroft visited Holmes to talk about a rejected honor (Chapter 7). Lestrade tells Holmes about the missing bones. Holmes tells Watson about his visit to meet royalty (Chapter 8). Returning on a ship to London they find a man stabbed dead (Chapter 9). Who did it? Holmes knows (Chapter 10)! Someone has cut off the head of a statue (Chapter 11). Holmes renews his interest in that hound (Chapter 12). Will recreating the crime provide a clue? Watson is sent on an errand of a confidential nature (Chapter 13). He visits Lord Belmont for dinner and sleeps over (Chapter 14). After hearing noises he looks around the house. The next day he returned to London (Chapter 15). Holmes tells him what he was doing.

Holmes and Watson go to Hampstead Heath in search of that tramp (Chapter 16). Will they learn th source of that hound? Will they find another body? Holmes and Watson review the history of this case (Chapter 17). Mrs. Glanvill visits Holmes and Watson and tells them what she knows (Chapter 18). Is she in grave danger now? Holmes, Watson, and Lestrade go to a funeral (Chapter 19). They explore Highgate Cemetery with a canine guide. Later a disguised Holmes and Watson go to a meeting of conspirators (Chapter 20). They enter an enclosed and isolated building to hear a speech against the exploiting and ruling class. There is a surprise for this group. The next day there were sensational headlines in the newspapers but few facts (Chapter 21). [Still true today?] Official censorship again. There were police raids around the country. The loose ends are tied up. Will Holmes retire (Chapter 22)?

The imitators of Sherlock Holmes are never equal to the original. Hardwick displays his vast knowledge of Doyle's writings and English history. Doyle did not keep referring to other stories as a way to show authenticity. Holmes did not work on nationwide conspiracies either, just local crimes. This story starts out slow, becomes more complex than any Doyle story, then sort of deflates into a shaggy ending. Blaming it all on a mad man is also a letdown. Where is Moriarity when you really need him? Watson's marriage to Mary Morstan was apparently a first marriage, as I recall. Mary's death seems a convenience to allow Watson to record more adventures without the hindrance of a wife and children to object to an absent father. Like when they eliminate or simplify a novel in adapting it to a movie. [Gutman's daughter was eliminated in the movie version of "The Maltese Falcon".] Conan Doyle's first wife died of tuberculosis.

My dad is a great Holmes fan. . . I was hesitant to buy a non-Doyle sequel to Hound, but he did not put it down! He pronounced it "a great read!" Please write more! !
