The Watson Letters Vol 1: Something Wicker This Way Comes

21 Mar

“The Watson Letters Vol 1: Something Wicker This Way Comes” by Colin Garrow is a quirky and hilarious romp.

The book comprises correspondence between Watson and Holmes (and others), Watson’s diary entries, and some delightful passages that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could have written. It’s not a narrative as such, but the tale it tells is one that reduced me to tears of helpless laughter on many occasions.

The book is loaded with more double entendres than a Carry On film. Not to mention people historical and fictional. The title is a play on the 1970s movie “The Wicker Man” and, yes, a similar scenario occurs in the book.

“Something Wicker This Way Comes” has a gorgeous weird steampunky vibe and is a truly delightful read. I will be adding the other volumes to my To Be Read list.

Highly recommended.
