by Michael Chabon #19

Oooh, this was a good one! Michael Chabon (I heart Wonder Boys a lot), Sherlock Holmes as an old man (although he is never named), a cipher-speaking parrot, the end of WWII and a cast of thousands! (All right, a cast of hundreds. Okay, okay, a cast of tens. A cast of least ten!) Chabon has a spot on voice for the Holmsian story but certainly brings his own descriptive and character-driven magic to the proceedings. What more could you want? Seriously, how greedy are you? If you like Holmes, Chabon, gingersnap cookies*, or are merely a fan of good writing and a quick read, do yourself a favor and check it out.

I have got to stop waiting so long before I write this stuff up.

*a love of gingersnap cookies is not necessary, or even related except that I could really go for one right now.
