    2. A fun short story featuring Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Watson learns about Mycroft's real job in the British government. He sends them on a murder case to find a spy. It's a fun and quick read. Nice little Sherlock mystery.


    3. Σύντομη ιστορία από τον δημιουργό του Σέρλοκ Χολμς. Έχει ενδιαφέρον αν την διαβάσεις με σκοπό να ακολουθείς προσεκτικά τη συλλογιστική του Χολμς και να προσπαθήσεις να το λύσεις παράλληλα. Δεν προτείνεται για λιγότερο μαζοχιστές.





    4. A very mysterious story of my most favorite fictitious character of all time, Sherlock Holmes. (view spoiler)[Sherlock Holmes receives a visit from his brother Mycroft over the case of Cadogan West and the Bruce-Partington plans. Mycroft works as a Government advisor and in this capacity he has decided that Sherlock Holmes is the only man who can clear up the matter.The Bruce-Partington plans detail the Bruce-Partington submarine, a closely kept government secret.

    5. In this book, the monotony of thick smog-shrouded London is broken by a sudden visit from Holmes’s brother Mycroft. He has come about some missing, secret submarine plans. Seven of the ten pages — three are still missing — were found with Arthur Cadogan West’s body. He was a young clerk in a government office at Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, whose body was found next to the Underground tracks near the Aldgate tube station, his head crushed. He had little money with him (although there appears [...]


    6. An interesting short Holmes' detection story with an insight on how he feels for his brother Maycroft and his profession.






    7. A great Sherlock Holmes mystery / spy thriller. A murder, Sherlock putting the pieces together, Watson by his side. Great stuff.


    8. Bagaimana Sherlock bisa memikirkan banyak kemungkinan dari detail-detail yang ia peroleh memang menakjubkan. Dan kali ini kita akan membaca kalimat khas Sherlock, ketika semua kemungkinan adalah mustahil, maka kemungkinan lain, walaupun tidak mungkin, adalah kebenaran (terjemahan kasar otak saya).Adaptasi Sherlock BBC sedikit berbeda dengan kasus aslinya. Lebih simpel walau cara pembuangan mayatnya sama caranya.Dan saya jadi berpikir masalah tentang bentuk negara kerajaan membaca novel ini, apak [...]


    9. Here was a story with big names thrown at you. Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's bigger and brainier brother who worked for the government, Sherlock Holmes whose intellect and smartness are well-known, Dr. Watson who is Sherlock's trust ally in the detective work and Detective Lestrade who is lacks in brain but makes up for it in tenacity. Secretive plans for a Bruce Partington is found on a government clerk with 3 pages missing. He has been found on the train tracks and Mycroft wants Sherlock to find [...]


    10. Part of the Sherlock Holmes series of stories and novels. Sherlock's brother, Mycroft Holmes, needs help with the mysterious death of a government employee who was in possession of important government documents, three essential pages of which are missing.I've always had a soft spot for Mycroft Holmes, a man more brilliant than his younger brother, but a man who prefered to help direct the British government from his office or his club rather than running about London. In this small tale, we can [...]


    11. Aku suka suka suka suka suka ceritanyaXD"Salah satu karakteristik Sherlock Holmes yg paling luar biasa adalah kekuatannya dlm merefleksikan pikiran pd tindakannya & mengerahkan semua kekuatan pikirannya ut menerangkan sesuatu, walaupun dia tahu bahwa dirinya tidak dpt mendapatkan manfaat lebih jauh pd pekerjaannya itu"P68


    12. "Look out this window, Watson. See how the figures loom up, are dimly seen, and then blend once more into the cloud-bank. The thief or the murderer could roam London on such a day as the tiger does the jungle, unseen until he pounces, and then evident only to his victim"


    13. Who can resist Sherlock Holmes. A quick read but a good one. The plans of a submarine are stolen and Holmes must find the culprit. Add in a bit of murder and everything gets very interesting. Holmes puts the clues together and of course finds his man. Another Victorian era read done.


    14. The first book I am adding that was read on an e-reader. Not my first e-book certainly!As noted in the Reading Challenge for 2012 comments, it appears that I am going to be reading more e-books in the near future, thus, a distinct shelf.Great Holmes story with the usual twists and turns!


    15. This is a fairly unremarkable Holmes story with the exception of the always pleasing appearance of Mycroft Holmes. I'm always struck at how minor his role actually is, for how much he's built up in my mind as a substantial character.


    16. The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans offered a fresh quick read for any Holmes reader. This time the London subways becomes a crime scene web a body is four upon the tracks. The plot was somewhat predictable at times but a good read altogether.

    18. Very entertaining Sherlock Holmes short story (novella?). Am I about to become a Sherlock Holmes nerd? Cause I'm not already nerdy enough. Sigh.



    19. What can you say about Sherlock Holmes? I love reading these mysteries. Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite characters.
