#BookReview: Solving Sherlock Holmes Volume II: Puzzle Your Way Through the Tales by Pierre Berloquin






Synopsis: This full-immersion experience challenges you to solve these slightly re-imagined scenarios inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous Sherlock Holmes short stories:

Interactive Challenge 1: Begins with a short introduction to the short story/crime, giving a summary of the main characters and plot. Following the introduction, 24 puzzles—including cryptograms, crosswords, logic conundrums, visual puzzles, ciphers, and word searches—are presented, for a grand total of 144puzzles.

Interactive Challenge 2: Utilizes maps that readers use to maneuver around the chapters, completing each puzzle not in a chronological order but, instead, relying on tips and clues from each solved puzzle to travel around the book, like a maze.

Interactive Challenge 3: Drops hidden clues that accumulate into a final, overarching word search, which requires the completed clues from all 6 chapters.
The Puzzlecraft series from Wellfleet Press tackles some of the greatest conundrums of our time. Learn how to navigate the world’s trickiest mazes, solve the most complex crosswords, and finally get the answer to “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” Follow literature’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, as he guides you through hundreds of challenging cross-fitness brain exercises inspired by his most popular cases and adventures. You can also train your memory to perform better and learn the meanings behind your own personality traits or the traits of others. These handy and portable paperbacks are sized perfectly to travel, whether on vacation or just for your daily commute. The intricately designed covers and bold colors will capture your attention as much as the engaging content inside.

My Review: Fans of Sherlock Holmes will love this puzzle book. This book is filled with 144 different puzzles to solve several different Sherlock Holmes mysteries. The puzzles are great brain teasers that keep you engaged and are semi-challenging. I loved how the clues gained from each puzzle correspond with the map challenges that also accompany each story. There are also clues in each chapter that are used to solve the final word search. Overall I found the book highly entertaining and recommend it to any puzzle enthusiast.
