    One thought on “Watson's Afghan Adventure - How Sherlock Holmes' Dr. Watson Became an Army Doctor”

    1. This is the only Sherlockian book I know of by this author. It is Watson’s own tale of his experiences in Afghanistan. The narrative is a very realistic exposition of a British Doctor’s life during the Second Afghan War. I am not sure of the details of the campaigns involved, but the presentation is an accurate and intelligent view of what Watson would have seen and experienced. The Watson presented here is very much the Watson who wrote the Canonical tales. He is inherently good and caring [...]

    2. At the most basic level, I liked this story. But it was very slow-paced, heavy on military stuff (obviously), full of character names with little to no actual character attached to them, and in desperate need of a competent copyeditor. I mean, honestly, if you're going to write something with a lot of horses in it, it's a good idea to know the difference between "reigns" and "reins."

    3. I think if you're a die hard fan of Sherlock and Watson then this is an okay read but it's a lot of "data" to put it mildly to get through. I felt like I was reading a text book rather than a story. Quick read though and simple plot so you'll be done it in an afternoon.

    4. Not as good as promised. Watson's voice,always so good when it comes to describe Holmes' exploit, sounds a tad flat in this tale where he's telling of himself.

    5. A very enjoyable Holmes story that believably fills in the details of Watson's life prior to teaming with Holmes.

    6. Wonderful read. Detailed and pacy and of course featuring one of my favourite characters in Watson - what more could you ask for.
