Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/19/2014

    " This is my least favorite of the series. I thought it was a little gross and not as adventrous as the rest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Pierson | 2/8/2014

    " My third Enola book--but the first I've read since I've become obsessed with Sherlock Holmes. This one is great! Love the setting, love Enola, love that she's like her brother in so many ways. I also like that Enola is starting to get some respect from Sherlock (can't say about Mycroft, though). The Holmes series I've been reading is set in the 1920s when Sherlock is close to 60. So it's fun to read about him back in the 1880s. Oh, and Enola too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chandra | 1/29/2014

    " Continuing on with this series and continuing to enjoy it greatly! The series is far from perfect, but it is still just so darn engaging despite any flaws. Funny enough, for a supposed mystery series, I'd say the actually mysteries are pretty weak. They certainly aren't up to the standards of the great Sherlock Holmes! But what's funny is that it doesn't really matter a bit! Again, London itself plays a starring role and what a larger than life character she is! It's really been a long time since I've devoured a series like this. Currently reading the fourth installment as we speak! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 1/29/2014

    " In my opinion, this is the strongest in this series so far. I love the character of Enola -- she's strong yet the characterization is still appropriate to her age, and intellectually she's Sherlock's match. I also enjoy the peek into Victorian society and the social issues of the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hilary Roberts | 1/27/2014

    " I didn't like this book as much as the first two, even though it was still a delightful read. Maybe it's because I'm used to the story line now, so it's not as new and creative. Whatever the reason, I still recommend reading these books -- very quick and clever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Verona | 1/23/2014

    " another great mystery. Interesting characters and storyline. Well written.she even uses some words that I need to look up in the dictionary. My girls & I like this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hoover Public Library Kids and Teens | 1/17/2014

    " Continuing the adventures of Enola Holmes, the free-spirited, hard headed sister of the infamous Sherlock Holmes. See how she fairs in the 3rd book of the Enola Holmes mystery. For a spoiler free review, please look at the first book in the series, "The Case of the Missing Marquess." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phair | 1/17/2014

    " A fun and exciting addition to this series. Although short and packaged to appeal to younger readers it can be well appreciated by older folk (and I'm pretty old). Good period feel, a spunky heroine, interesting adventures, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 1/7/2014

    " Excellent mystery. Enola, our plucky heroine, takes the case when Dr. Watson goes missing while still staying hidden from her brothers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dayna Smith | 12/7/2013

    " The third book in the Enola Holmes series. Dr Watson has disappeared. Even Sherlock can't find him, so Enola decides to try. Can she solve the mystery before Watson is killed and before Sherlock or Mycroft find her? A charming delightful story for Holmes lovers everywhere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Brown | 12/6/2013

    " This is the third Enola Holmes Mystery. There are parts that are funny and parts that are pretty dark so I would recommend it for a good sixth grade reader through middle school. Historical mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Jane | 3/25/2013

    " This is my favorite in the series so far. And this was the first one that I listened to on audiobook. The reader, Katherine Kellgren, was fabulous! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 orangerful | 1/20/2013

    " I listened to this book and really LOVED the narrator. She managed to give Enola a certain intelligence in her voice, as well as portray the cast of characters that she meets in the book with distinctive tones of their own. I really love this odd little series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trina | 3/14/2012

    " I do love this series and this was my favorite so far. They are enough distanced from Sherlock Holmes that I don't feel like the author is ripping off Conan Doyle. Intriguing mystery. Makes me want to learn more about the symbolism of flowers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire Enk | 12/6/2011

    " I love, love, love how Nancy Springer incorporates the language of the flowers into Enola Holmes do cleverly throughout the story. I always know what the title has to do with the story and when she doesn't realize it, it drives me nuts ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 7/9/2011

    " This was a really enjoyable light read. I am a Sherlock Holmes fan so this adventure by and about his younger sister was sweet. Nancy Springer kept the tone and rhythm one finds in Conan Doyle's writing. I would highly recommend this, or any one in the series, for a young adult read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 7/2/2011

    " I read the first in this series, skipped the second one, and still really enjoyed this third one. I reviewed it for School Library Journal and they gave it a starred review (January 2008). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendi | 6/28/2011

    " Great book about Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes, who goes about covertly solving mysteries in oppressive 19th century England. I will definitely read the other books in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathrine | 4/2/2011

    " I loved it! Of the Enola Holmes books that I have read; so far this one felt the most like the original Sherlock stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessi | 4/1/2011

    " Dr. Watson has been kidnapped. Enola wants to help but needs to stay hidden from her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft. Can she discover what these two eminent men cannot? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 3/12/2011

    " Engaging and adorable, another winner in the Enola Holmes series. Am I the only one who doesn't find her mother's words of wisdom cold and harsh? They actually make a lot of sense to me.

    "You will do very well on your own, Enola." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 3/4/2011

    " Loved it again, I need to get my hands on the rest of the series, that is all Summit Elementary has! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 3/2/2011

    " This was my favorite one so far, though I'm surprised these are listed as children's books (I found them in the children's room of my library, not the YA section). Some of the themes as well as the language definitely don't feel appropriate for middle readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 2/15/2011

    " This was a really enjoyable light read. I am a Sherlock Holmes fan so this adventure by and about his younger sister was sweet. Nancy Springer kept the tone and rhythm one finds in Conan Doyle's writing. I would highly recommend this, or any one in the series, for a young adult read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte | 2/6/2011

    " Continues the series. Clever use of cypher and how our own ignorance and presumptions and defeat even the mighty Sherlock. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 1/15/2011

    " In my opinion, this is the strongest in this series so far. I love the character of Enola -- she's strong yet the characterization is still appropriate to her age, and intellectually she's Sherlock's match. I also enjoy the peek into Victorian society and the social issues of the time. "

    " I just finished one book and started another. It's like one whole book cut into different parts. Delightful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Superidole | 1/10/2011

    " vraiment trop court! On en redemande! J'aime l'ambiance et Enola mais c'est vrai qu'un peu plus de développement serait le bienvenu! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/28/2010

    " I thought this was the creepiest by far of the Enola Holmes mysteries, but it was a well-executioned plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 9/15/2010

    " Great book. Rich characters (I love the Watsons!) and more codes only Enola would know. Enola and Sherlock's relationship is getting...better? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexa | 9/4/2010

    " Unlike most series, this one seems to get better as it continues and Enola gains more and more confidence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 8/25/2010

    " listened to this on CD on a trip home to meet Kayden - new nephew

    Dr. Watson goes missing and Enola solves the mystery. "
