I am inclined to think said I I should do so Sherlock Holmes remarked impatientlyI believe that I am one of the most long suffering of mortals but I ll admit that I was annoyed at the sardonic interruption Really Holmes said I severely you are a little trying at times An auspicious start to The Valley of Fear where Holmes is trolling Watson by this point in their timeline they are already like an old married couple Looking at Goodreads ranking by the number of ratings of Conan Doyle s books including the sans Holmes Jurassic Park prototype The Lost World Professor Challenger 1 The Valley of Fear does not make the top ten Does this mean it is a bad Sherlock Holmes book Perish the thought There is no such thing However of the four Holmes full length novels this is the least of them Still if you are a Sherlock Holmes fan as opposed to just a fan of Benedict Crummylunch there is no excuse to skip this one The Valley of Fear hits the ground running with Holmes receiving a cipher message which he solves while mocking Watson You are developing a certain unexpected vein of pawky humour Watson against which I must learn to guard myself LOL I love his process of decoding the encrypted message always the most fun part of any Holmes story The note warns of a man being in imminent danger of pushing up the daisies The game is therefore afoot and soon Holmes Watson and a police inspector are racing off to the countryside to investigate the murder of Mr John Douglas whose face has apparently been shot to pieces A card marked VV 341 is left beside the body What soon transpire is a massive spoiler so I won t go into that suffice it to say that Holmes solves the mystery before the book is even half over At that point I wondered what are we left with then for the rest of the book What follows for most of the second half of the book is a story set in the Vermissa Valley the titular Valley of Fear in the US featuring an evil freemason lodgeIn most Holmes novels Conan Doyle structured the books with a beginning involving Holmes and Watson investigating a murder then the narrative switches to a novella length flashback section where our two heroes are entirely absent from the narrative after that ends we are back with Holmes and a denouement or a coda This is the case here and The Valley of Fear is structurally identical to A Study in Scarlet there is also another similarity that book features a community of evil Mormons this one features an evil freemason lodge If he had gone on to write a fifth Holmes novel it probably would have featured an evil community of cross dressing lumberjacksI cannot help but think that Conan Doyle may have run out of original plot ideas by this point in his career Certainly every time Doyle pulls this stunt the absence of Holmes and Watson is keenly felt However Doyle gets away with it because he was such a gifted storyteller and the Holmes free narrative section is always somewhat entertaining Having said that to me this narrative structure often leaves me with something like a sandwich with excellent bread but a meh filling Imagine a James Bond movie with Bond shaken but not stirring for half the movie that is not going to go down very wellIn conclusion if you like Conan Doyle s Sherlock Holmes stories you should not miss The Valley of Fear because there are only a limited number of them and there are enough Holmes Watson shenanigans to make most fans reasonably happy If you have never read a full length Holmes novel start with The Hound of the Baskervilles it is the best one and even a little spookyNotes I reviewed all the other three Holmes novels I hope these reviews will be of some interest to you A Study in Scarlet The Hound of the Baskervilles The Sign of Four I bought this Kindle edition off for 099 thinking it would have some nice illustrations I could put in this review Hilariously the pictures inside have nothing to do with the novel or Holmes If you want a free e book edition go for the Project Gutenberg one I listened to the Librivox audiobook version brilliantly read as always by David Clarke Thank you uotes Your thoughts move a bit too uick for me Mr Holmes You leave out a link or two and I can t get over the gap Said PC Plod Dozens of exiguous threads which lead vaguely up towards the centre of the web where the poisonous motionless creature is lurking Lots of shoutouts to Moriarty but the great Mo never shows up He brightened and rubbed his thin hands together as he listened to the meagre but remarkable details A long series of sterile weeks lay behind us and here at last there was a fitting object for those remarkable powers which like all special gifts become irksome to their owner when they are not in use That razor brain blunted and rusted with inaction
