Books With Bean ~ The Redheaded League

Books With Bean, book reviews by teens, Sherlock Holmes, The Redheaded League

Title: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: The Redheaded League 

Author: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Published: 1891

Genre: Mystery 

Summary: When Dr. Watson goes for a visit to see his friend Sherlock Holmes he finds Sherlock in the middle of talking to a client. The man's name is Mr. Wilson and he is telling Sherlock about a set of strange events that has happened to him recently. He joined a group of redheaded men and he was tasked with copying the Encyclopedia. It was easy and paid well but then he came one day to find the group of men dissolved. Not knowing what else to do he came to Sherlock. 

What I liked about it: Its interesting and clever, and like all of Doyle’s other Sherlock Holmes stories it keeps you interested and guessing until the end.

Language: None

Romance: None

Violence: I small scuffle when they capture the villain but nothing gory.

Magic: None 

Recommended Age: This is one of the interesting but clean Sherlock stories. I would say it is fine for 12-13 on up.

*** Note from Carol: I hope you saw Arlene stated this was one of the clean Sherlock stories, thus, appropriate for ages 12 and up. We would not recommend letting your teen loose on Sherlock Holmes stories in general until at least age 15.
