A Book and A Movie Sherlock Holmes and Company

I have been waiting to post a book review for two books I read written by Novelist Stephanie Osborn. She has taken the Character Sherlock Holmes to a new level.

Normally I do not like any book from my computer. It aggravates me; I downloaded this book to my kindle so I could review it for a wonderful author and friend Stephanie Osborn.
I couldn’t get the font right on my kindle so I went back to my computer to read it. I am so glad I did.
Stephanie takes Sherlock Holmes to an entire new level. Her story setting places the reader smack dab in the middle of story. She takes science and Holmes and blends them into a book that keeps the reader wondering how he is going to get out of this scrap.
Then she takes it one step farther, Stephanie Osborn follows this wonderful madcap adventure with the second in the series, titled The
Case of Displaced Detective- At Speed.
I can only guess where Stephanie will take Mr. Holmes and his new sidekick Sky a scientist as she maneuvers him through the 21st Century. Yes, I said the 21st Century. I refuse to give away any other clues. As Holmes would say, “Elementary my Dear Watson.”
As a reader and fan of Holmes this series is on my list as soon as they are available. I will be adding them to my ever growing Holmes Library.

After I wrote this review for Ms. Osborn I went to see the New Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows movie. It was full of special effects, typical dry British Humor and a story line that kept me sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next moment.
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are the classic Holmes and Watson. They play off each other like a well orchestrated symphony. The scenery will leave you breathless as Holmes and Watson chase Moriarty across Europe.

One scene in particular shows Watson reading a note left by Holmes. One one side of the folded note are the words, “If is it convenient go here” On the other side of the note are the words, If It is inconvenient, go anyway.” Typical British humor. These little tibits are fast and one has to be quick to hear and understand them.

Ms. Osborn uses the same type of dry British humor in her two new books with Holmes as her main character. When I read her books, I saw Downey, Jr. as her Holmes. Forget what you read by the paid critics, go see the movie. You won’t be sorry. After that get Ms. Osborn’s book. You won’t regret it.
