    My second Enola Holmes mystery on audibook narrated by the great Katherine Kellgren I think, in many ways, I liked this better than the first book It isfocused on an actual mystery case, whereas the first one seemedcharacter building and setting the scene with a mystery tacked on They mystery is interesting in terms of character and plot and also in terms of historical aspects Women s rights and metaphysical stuff and Marxism Very cool My only negative is that the beginning see My second Enola Holmes mystery on audibook narrated by the great Katherine Kellgren I think, in many ways, I liked this better than the first book It isfocused on an actual mystery case, whereas the first one seemedcharacter building and setting the scene with a mystery tacked on They mystery is interesting in terms of character and plot and also in terms of historical aspects Women s rights and metaphysical stuff and Marxism Very cool My only negative is that the beginning seemed rather slow, a bit too much recap but then I had only finished the first book only about a week before so probably if I hadof a gap I would have found that aspect beneficial rather than tedious I m hoping this series continues to stay strong Note that despite its Middle Grade classification, I think this issuitable for YA

    I binged books 2 4 on a drive to and from a weekend trip, and they were all absolutely delightful Katherine Kellgren s narration takes them all to another level, and I wholeheartedly recommend them, especially to fans of the Flavia de Luce series Flavia is a cut above, in my opinion, especially because those books are aimed at adults rather than younger readers, but Enola is also a very compelling and precocious heroine And even though I m rarely into books for young readers, these have me ri I binged books 2 4 on a drive to and from a weekend trip, and they were all absolutely delightful Katherine Kellgren s narration takes them all to another level, and I wholeheartedly recommend them, especially to fans of the Flavia de Luce series Flavia is a cut above, in my opinion, especially because those books are aimed at adults rather than younger readers, but Enola is also a very compelling and precocious heroine And even though I m rarely into books for young readers, these have me riveted Definitely get the audiobook Katherine Kellgren was one of the all time great narrators

    In this, the second of the series, Enola Holmes is living in London masquerading as a young miss named Ivy Meshle and working for the famous Perditorian, Dr Ragostin What is a perditorian you say Good question, I had to look it up myself A perditorian is a finder of lost things And Dr Ragostin is reputed to be very good at what he does although most people have never heard of him.In truth, Dr Ragostin doesn t actually exist He and his reputation are entirely made up as a means for Enol In this, the second of the series, Enola Holmes is living in London masquerading as a young miss named Ivy Meshle and working for the famous Perditorian, Dr Ragostin What is a perditorian you say Good question, I had to look it up myself A perditorian is a finder of lost things And Dr Ragostin is reputed to be very good at what he does although most people have never heard of him.In truth, Dr Ragostin doesn t actually exist He and his reputation are entirely made up as a means for Enola to make a living As Ivy Meshle, Dr Ragostins s assistant, she is able to take cases to find whatever is asked Like her much older brother, Sherlock Holmes, Enola employs various costumes and identities to help her make her way through Victorian era London.This case involves looking for a missing girl, Lady Cecily, who appears to have runaway or possibly eloped, a possibility that is so shameful that her father and the police have tried to cover it up so as not to disgrace her family The only person who doesn t believe it is her mother Enola hears of the case by coincidence from her brother s dear friend, Dr John Watson, who comes to Dr Ragostin to get some help on another matter What follows is a fairly dark situation involving a possible serial killer, kidnapping, and abuse.I was a little surprised at how dark and scary this was, especially for a Young Adult novel Not that anything was extremely graphic it was well done in that sense I had a hard time believing the level of maturity that Enola shows at some points in the story and her lack of naivete in other situations The Sister of the Streets was one point where I struggled with credibility but Enola s perseverance and her dogged pursuit of the bad guy were exciting and kept me reading I also enjoyed the ciphers and the second storyline of Sherlock s pursuit of his sister I will be reading the next in the series to see how Enola is doing

    Another wonderful book from Springer in the Enola Holmes Mysteries I listened to the audio version and was completely impressed with the production I had been picky about Katherine Kellgren s narration in the first installment of this series, criticizing that her voices were good, but that many sounded similar I had no such concerns with this book and felt Kellgren captured each character almost perfectly I also had criticized the lack of finality and conclusion of the first installmen Another wonderful book from Springer in the Enola Holmes Mysteries I listened to the audio version and was completely impressed with the production I had been picky about Katherine Kellgren s narration in the first installment of this series, criticizing that her voices were good, but that many sounded similar I had no such concerns with this book and felt Kellgren captured each character almost perfectly I also had criticized the lack of finality and conclusion of the first installment s story, but thankfully this book picks up shortly after the finale to of the first and answered many of the issues I d had with book 1.I thought the mystery of Left Handed Lady was muchfleshed out than the mystery of the first book, and was very pleased about that finding myself surprised on numerous occasions However, when the book was over I realized that there really hadn t been any character development in this book that hadn t already occurred in the first book.But, I do really enjoy Springer s narrative, and her attention to detail which seemed less cumbersome here or perhaps I was justused to it Overall, definitely recommended, especially if you enjoyed the first book, and I am curious to see how the series progresses

    Packed with muchaction and suspense than the first book, definitely had me curious I really enjoyed the sizeable cameo of big brother Sherlock, appearances by Dr Watson and Mrs Hudson, as well as all the references to canon I do feel that Enola is a bitstubborn than I would like, perhaps out of fear of a dull life or perhaps out of pride Hoping she may grow a bit as the books go along.

    I enjoyed re reading this very much as an adult The not her blood scene is one of my favorites of the series I like Lady Cecily but the case surrounding her is not the best of the series Also what s up with the present tense third person prologues and epilogues I remember not really liking them and now that I m older I realize it s because they are in present tense Third person should never never be in present tense.
