    "I'm really enjoying this latest generation of authors tackling the Sherlock Holmes universe, and keeping the character alive and entertaining in the 21st century. This is one of the longer, and in my opinion, more serious attempts to give the character the love he deserves, and it shows. Definitely worthwhile for any fan of the classic hero or the detective genre in general."

    "While this book serves as an interesting concept, it is in no way one of the best Sherlock Holmes books. If you are looking for a classic, then you must read a classic, such as the Hound of the Baskervilles. I believe that for the new generation, a book like the one suggested may be more modern, but still won't compare to the originals."

    "While 'The Ectoplasmic Man' is written by Daniel Stashower and not Arthur Conan Doyle, it is a fun Sherlock Holmes adventure. Stashower has the detective teaming up with Harry Houdini, so there are quite a few tricks and feints involved. If you are not a Doyle Purist and can find enjoyment on a slightly different feeling to the famous detective this book is a fun read."

    "This is an absolutely phenomenal book that highlights a great deal of the characteristics of Sherlock. It is quite interesting though the differences that happen to Sherlock when he comes to America and explores the country solving mysteries. Even the president of the time was involved in the mystery."

    "The solution is a link to a book but there is nothing else to compare it to. It does not provide any reasons as to why this is the best Sherlock Holmes story. "
