The Seven-Per-Cent Solution: Being a Reprint from the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D. (Audio) - Nicholas Meyer, David Case One of the things I enjoy about the original Holmes-stories is that they're often so small-scale. Holmes only has to deal with a handful of murderers and in many cases there wasn't even an actual crime comitted. So pastiches in which the fate of the world/Europe/England depend on Holmes abilities...they bore me a bit, I'm afraid especially wenn Holmes then explains that he only delayed a war anyway.However I still enjoyed the story overall. Meyer did manage to capture Holmes and Watson really well and the whole idea was quite fascinating (it's also so far the only pastiche where Moriarty didn't get on my nerves).
