Reviews - What do customers think about The Giant Rat of Sumatra (Baker Street Detectives)?
Better than most adaptions of the unpublished story. Jun 27, 2000
There are several different re-tellings of the famous unpublished case for which "the world was not yet ready". I thought the lack of Watson would affect these books, but it dosen't! Filled with mystery, intriuge, and suspense. Read it whether you like Holmes or not.
Great book, even for adults! Dec 12, 1999
The Thoenes stay remarkably true to Doyle's style of writing and give us a closer look at some of the great detective's assistants. Perhaps I can best describe it by giving you this bit: "From where he swam, the boy could not see the men on the deck, but he could hear their conversation. 'Very nice of you to save the boy, Holmes,' Van Rorin said, ' but who'll save you?' 'Jump!' Peachy sobbed, worried for the life of his friend. 'No, Carnehan,' Holmes called from the deck, 'I would surely drown.' 'Quiet!' Van Rorin shouted......'Now it's time to dispose of you, Holmes.'Peachy heard a shot and sunk his head below the surface. I can't believe it, he thought. Holmes is dead."
I REALLY LIKE THIS ALOT Aug 30, 1999
THESE ARE GREAT BOOKS. I GOT THE WHOLE SET FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND READ THEM ALL. MY FAVORITE IS THUNDERING UNDERGROUND. I AM DOING REPORTS FOR SCHOOL ON ALL OF THEM. I ALSO REALLY LIKE LAST CHANCE DETECTIVES WHICH THEY WRITE. I HOPE THEY WRITRE MORE.
