کتاب شرلوک هولمز علیه دراکولا

اثر لورن دی. استلمن از انتشارات قطره - مترجم: نیما م. اشرفی-داستان تاریخی

در این کتاب ماجرای کنت خون‌خوار را این‌بار از زبان دکتر واتسون می‌خوانیم. بله، یار باوفای شرلوک هولمز ادعا می‌کند روایتی را که استوکر به هم بافته، روایتی جعلی و پر از حذفیات است و پروفسور ون‌هلسینگ استوکر را وادار کرده حقیقت را دست‌کاری کند و نقش هولمز و واتسون را در این ماجرا نادیده بگیرد. تقابل این موجود نامیرای فراطبیعی با هولمزی که فقط بر پایه‌ی عقل و شواهد استنتاج می‌کند، برای تمام هولمز دوستان تقابل شگفتی خواهد بود.

معرفی کتاب شرلوک هولمز علیه دراکولا از نگاه کاربران
داستان جذابی بود و احتمال زیاد بقیه یکتاب های شرلوک هولمز هم بخونم. اما تا حدودی نسبت به بقیه ی رمان هایی که خوندم بی هدف بود و صرفا یک ماجرای پلیسی بود. با این حال من دوسش داشتم :))))

با انتظار رویارویی هلمز منطقی با موجودی افسانه ای و چاشنی استنتاج
با پیشرفت داستان از جذابیتش کم می شده و خواننده می مونه که چه بر سر پروفسور ون هلسینگ و دستیارانش که در ابتدای داستان دیدیم اومد. رویارویی های بعدی او و هلمز می تونست خیلی جذاب در بیاد.
چندان از تیزهوشی هلمز خبری نیست و گویا جذابیت داستان منحصر به بیست، سی صفحه ابتدایی ست.
پایان بندی داستان هم قابل پیش بینی و فاقد تعلیق و جذابیت ه

This is a tremendously fun book to read for those who enjoy the old-fashioned Rathbone and Bruce films of the 1940s, or those who enjoyed Sherlock Holmes in the days when radio ruled the airwaves. Light and fun, with plenty of atmosphere, Estleman has written a book which has great appeal to the aforementioned group, and young adults. Dracula fans may also enjoy it. Some Conan Doyle fans — but by no means all of them — might find this sort of crossover story a bit of a stretch.

Holmes and Watson become involved in the Sanguinary Counts attempt to leave Transylvania and make England his home in this fun adventure. This is Doctor Watsons account of Sherlock Holmess heretofore untold part in the Dracula saga, written to rectify this important omission in Stokers account, at the specific request of Professor Van Helsing. A sense of fun and adventure saturate the pages of Estlemans fun but not-to-be-taken-too-seriously story.

From the moment a ship is discovered off the English coast with no crew aboard except a dead captain with unusual puncture marks on his neck, and a cargo full of Transylvanian earth, Holmes and Watson know this is going to be no ordinary case. Reluctant at first to believe in the possibility of vampires, Holmes, and an even more skeptical Watson, may finally be forced to accept the existence of the undead.

When the London duo track down the @Bloofer [email protected] through the strange abduction of children who are later found alive, but disoriented from blood loss, the lady in question turns out to be none other than Lucy Westerna! More shocking, however, is our favorite duo witnessing her impalement by Van Helsing, Harker, and the gang from Bram Stokers Dracula. Van Helsing is disturbed to discover that the great detective knows much more about him and his companions than he initially thought. Forced to fill in Holmes on the Dracula legend, Van Helsing dismisses his offer of help nonetheless. Holmes and Watson then continue their pursuit alone, in this marvelously fun account of the chase.

More than one dangerous encounter with the evil Count ensues as they close in, and someone Watson loves dearly becomes a pawn in a very deadly game indeed. Watsons bravery and the help of the Baker Street Irregulars play no small part in this fast and fun read. A boat chase near the conclusion is a particular highlight and offers fun for those who just go with the narrative. I would definitely recommend this for young adults, and old-time radio fans, but purists of the original Conan Doyle might not be as enamored.

While I normally loathe a continuation of a series character by a writer other than the original, especially if it comes too quickly on the heels of their death, enough time has passed that this one does not feel like a @[email protected] but rather an affectionate nod to Conan Doyle and his creation. That being said, the game is afoot, and time is of the essence for some afternoon fun with this one!

Listened to the BBC audio of Sherlock Holmes vs Dracula where John Moffatt is playing Holmes, who incidentally also did the voiceover for Poirot. So therel be times when I would not know whether its the voice of Poirot or Holmes talking. Add to the confounded confusion - Van Helsing, Dracula and the lot!
I was pretty much

Pretty lame quaint as far as the plot goes. Nothing to write home about.
1.5 blah stars

Holmes: “…You are still skeptical?”
Watson: “I am always skeptical, but I admit that I am not as sure of my ground as I was. It would be pushing the law of averages too far to suggest that everyone we have spoken to in connection with this case is suffering from the same delusions.”
“It would be a most amazing coincidence,” agreed my friend.
“At the same time, all my scientific training rebels against the notion of Supernatural beings that rise from their graves at night to feed upon the blood of the living and command fog and storms to cover their tracks.”

So, “the game’s afoot.” But I am the one who enters it being skeptical. Is this merely an attempt to shake some coins from a gullible audience in the manner of Superman vs. Batman or Alien vs. Predator?

Well, my friends, I am reporting that this book is a fine addition to the Holmes casebook. I don’t want to disclose anything of the plot that you cannot already surmise from the title. It is: taught; compelling; and, almost pitch perfect.

“I shuddered. ‘And what eyes! More a beast than those of a man.’
‘I quite agree. A most savage and cunning beast is Count Dracula, whose fangs and claws are all the more dangerous because of the mighty brain which directs them. It is with hesitancy that I contemplate his destruction.’
I frowned disapprovingly, ‘I have never know you to be hesitant in the face of danger, Holmes.’
‘Not for myself, Watson. It is for your wonderful wife that I fear. I do not wish to make her a widow before her time.’”

I don’t know anything about the rest of this series but this book bodes well for it.

I thought this novel was great. A warning to anyone who hasnt read it yet: I do recomend reading Bram Stokers Dracula first. If you have never read it before read it now it will provide a lot of context that you otherwise would be missing out on. Also if you have picked up this book please be familiar with the Sherlock Holmes stories as written by Conan Doyle. Estleman does an excelent job of copying the good Doctors (Dr. Doyle that is) writing style and you need to be able to appreciate that fact.

And on that note I congradulate Mr. Estleman for staying so close to Stokers novel. Instead of just writing a parody of the two classic Characters his novel provides added depth and really stays true to images that the reader fell in love with.

A lot of the action in this novel is concerned mostly with the question of What was Dracula doing during all of that time Londen? The answer is trying to stay one step ahead of the worlds greatest detective.

Now I cant wait find Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Holmes. I have high hopes that it will be equaly as good.
