    1. Actual rating 2.5 stars.I was really looking forward to reading this, but it didn t really live up to my expectations I love the idea behind it, but in the end it didn t actually work as well as it could have This could have been a really cool addition to the Sherlock Holmes canon, but it was middling at best This starts off along the lines of a found footage movie in this case though it s a stack of notebooks that are discovered and they happen to belong to Mrs Hudson She presents her life at B [...]


    2. This was not nearly as funny as I had hoped it would be I did not have any laughing moments I did recognize some storylines though I kept imagining Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock.


    3. I found this book pointless It s not difficult to read, but you certainly feel as if you wasted time on it with interesting books out there.


    4. A gently amusing look at the world of 221B Baker Street through the eyes of its landlady.Anyone of my age or older, who is familiar with English television, will recognize the name of the writer, Barry Cryer A man responsible for some of the wittier offerings from the BBC in the 1970s.This works well, with several very funny injokes, but cannot sustain the momentum it starts off with Worth a look if you re a Sherlock Holmes or a Barry Cryer fan.



    5. I was utterly disappointment Its possible that the tv series Sherlock with Benedict have given me high expectations, however this book did not live up to the mere hopes Yes its a journal of sorts, but there is nothing funny, entertaining or fascinating as the original Sherlock stories Its very monotone, not to say utterly boring Which is sad, because the concept is great, and the mere proximity to the Conan Doyle stories, should have made this a great book.


    6. I was deeply disappointing in this book as I was looking forward to delving into Mrs Hudsons life and the impact that Sherlock and his various adventures had on her life book And of course some downstairs tales about the upstairs tenant However, no insight was forthcoming.I was really excited about this book What would be better then to get Mrs Hudson s perspective on the goings on at 221B However, that is not really in this book.It ends up being a stylized diary of Mrs Hudson s day to day musin [...]


    7. I didn t know what I expected from this pastiche, but it wasn t as funny as I expected it to be The authors have got Mrs Hudson s voice spot on, but there seems to be a push to try and get the humour in Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn t.The pictures included show images of the time period, which I liked, but I would have liked an attempt at what they thought Mrs Hudson looked like to complete the story.All in all, good book as a pastiche spin off in the Sherlock Holmes canon.However, as i [...]


    8. Horrendously bad parody of Sherlockian books and articles where the subject of research is the long suffering Mrs Hudson instead of Holmes and or Watson The joke s wear thin really fast It boggles the mind how crap like this gets published Therefore, I bestow no stars on this book.


    9. I m not really sure what to make if this book On the whole I enjoyed it,but it was a bit disjointed I bought it after going to see Mrs Hudson s christmas corker at Wiltons, old East London music hall , which was fabulous I enjoyed that it gave me the flavour of Victorian London, and continued the essence of what I saw in the play I can understand others reviews on here not being very high, as it s not the best diary read Still, I enjoyed it.


    10. I really enjoyed this book I almost didn t read it and am so glad I did It was very funny and made me laugh out loud a lot I was quite sad when I d finished it and that doesn t happen too often.


    11. This had some interesting references to cases and some of the people in them, but it needed a lot substance Most of the footnotes weren t necessary for anyone who has read the Sherlock Holmes stories and some of the comments from the editor and the publisher were really not funny.
