The Netflix adaptation of this book follows the plot, especially the first half of the book, very closely. I'm not sure if that is why I couldn't get into it more or the writing. I would say just watch the Netflix movie though, it is more fun. ( )

A breezy middle grade read, and quite enjoyable. It begins much like the movie version on Netflix, but is very different once she leaves home. Both are good in their own ways. One thing is for certain, I would have been obsessed with this book (and likely, the whole series) as a kid. ( )

The Case of the Missing Marquess - Springer
Audio performance by Katherine Kellgren
3 stars

The first book of a middle grade mystery series. Set in the late 19th century, the 14-year-old female protagonist is the much younger sister of Sherlock Holmes. It’s Enola’s birthday. Her mother has abruptly disappeared. This sends Enola on a series of unlikely adventures as she investigates while coming to terms with abandonment. Definitely intended for a young audience. I felt Enola’s situation was too bleak, while the story lacked both humor and suspense. The recent movie adaptation was more entertaining. ( )

On Enola Holmes’s 14th birthday, her mother, Eudoria, walks out of the house and doesn’t return. Enola is distraught and immediately sets to tracking her mother down. Fortunately, detecting runs in the family: Enola’s older brothers are none other than Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes. Less fortunately, Enola is constrained by Victorian social mores, and she will require ingenuity to get her brothers off her back and solve the mystery of her mother’s disappearance. And then there’s the kidnapping of a marquess that attracts her attention…

I enjoyed this a fair bit. Enola makes a likeable protagonist in the tomboy vein, and I liked how she came to the realization that just because Sherlock is the Great Detective doesn’t mean she doesn’t possess equally useful skills. The case here plays to her strengths. Mycroft and Sherlock are themselves amusing — I was chortling aloud frequently and imagining Mark Gatiss and Benedict Cumberbatch as the detectives (with bonus Rupert Graves as Lestrade). This book reads extremely fast, so fast that I couldn’t believe it was over! I’ve requested the second book in the series right away.

I’d recommend this book for its actual target audience (Enola is 14, so maybe the preteen age is the sweet spot for this book), but also for adults who want a light Sherlock-adjacent story that in my view renders Sherlock fairly close to how he is in Doyle’s world (I wanted to say “in real life”, but he’s not real… as far as I know…).

On Enola's fourteenth birthday, her mother disappears. Once she realizes what's happened and that her mother is nowhere nearby, Enola contacts her older brothers, Mycroft and Sherlock Holmes, who she hasn't seen since she was four, figuring that they, as brilliant as they are, could help. Instead, they seem more concerned about the condition of the estate and what Enola has been doing for the past ten years. Mycroft had been sending their mother funds for household expenses since their father died ten years ago, and she had apparently been squirreling that money away for her eventual escape. Enola, who is not pleased with Mycroft's plans to send her to boarding school, can understand her motive for what she did, but there is one question she desperately wants answered: why didn't her mother bring her with her when she left?

Using the gifts her mother left for her, Enola sets off to try answer that question but stumbles across a completely different mystery in the process: the missing Viscount Tewksbury, Marquess of Basilwether.

I watched the new Netflix movie before reading this book, and I knew going in that the book and the movie would be pretty different. My synopsis doesn't really make it clear just how different they are. The movie aged all of the younger characters up a few years (Enola went from 14 to 16, while Tewksbury went from 12 to at least 16), changed or intensified characters' personalities, and completely changed the plot after the point where Enola escaped to London on her own. There were even some things (like disguising herself as a boy) that Enola did in the movie but deliberately did not do in the book.

Overall, I liked the book more than the movie, but watching the movie first did leave me feeling a little off kilter while reading. Everything in the book felt more streamlined - both Tewksbury and Enola's mother's storylines were a lot simpler. But I could imagine liking Book Enola more than Movie Enola over the course of a series. She didn't morph into the female Sherlock I'd expected, but she did blossom in ways I appreciated while still making mistakes that were believable for a relatively sheltered and semi-neglected fourteen-year-old girl. I winced, hard, at her first really big mistake, but it helped that she, too, spent the rest of the book occasionally kicking herself for screwing up the way she did.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I thought Movie Sherlock was a better Sherlock Holmes in the ways that mattered than Book Sherlock, even though Henry Cavill was in no way believable as Sherlock. While I enjoyed Book Sherlock's determination to do right by Enola and become a better older brother (even if he did have nearly as low an opinion of her abilities and intelligence as Mycroft), I was dismayed at how useless he was. As far as I could tell, he made no progress in any of the various mystery storylines, and I've read just enough of the original Holmes stories to be highly doubtful that he'd get to the point of desperately asking Lestrade for help.

This was the first book in a series and very much felt like it. It set up the basic framework, introduced Enola and her brothers, and felt like it was over in a flash, with a bunch of story and character threads still left dangling. Despite my issues with it, I enjoyed it overall and will probably read the next book, if only for the possibility of more "flawed older brother Sherlock awkwardly trying to do right by his much younger sister." Although if Sherlock continues to lack Sherlockian deductive reasoning and observation skills, that may be where I stop.


A cipher solution section that explains how Enola deciphered the last message in the book, as well as an excerpt from Book 2.
