A Double Barreled Detective Story by Mark Twain features Sherlock Holmes in the American west. Twain uses Sherlock Holmes to brilliantly parody the entire mystery genre. Holmes slavishly employs the scientific method to a ridiculous degree and to a widely incorrect conclusion while attempting to solve a crime. Classic Twain though.

Sherlock Holmes book. This is a satire of the detective story genre, and unless I'm mistaken, it parallels Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet. It's been a couple of years since I read that, so my memory is fuzzy, but I saw a lot of similarities, so this might be poking fun at that one directly. I have no idea how Doyle felt about it all. He hated Holmes, himself, because he wanted to focus on more serious writing, so he might have been pleased that Twain took the time to lampoon the great detective.

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character created by Arthur Conan Doyle in 1887. He is an English consulting detective living in London at 221b Baker Street. At first Arthur Conan Doyle named the detective as Sherrinford Holmes (not Sherringford as he wrongly mentioned in his auto-biography Memories and Adventures 40 years later) and the biographer Ormond Sacker (see manuscript in A Study in Scarlet). But he changed his mind and renamed them as Sherlock Holmes and John H. Watson.

  • I purchased the audio version to listen to in the car. The reader was very good and entertaining. The story has typical Twain humor and is very engaging. Sherlock Holmes only appears toward the end and is vigorously lampooned by Twain. The story set-up to get to the point of lampooning Holmes and Doyle's writing took too long and had a major tangential wandering that was inconsequential to the story (a discussion of the literal meaning of a nonsensical prose paragraph). Overall, it was a worthwhile distraction given the talent of Twain. However, don't expect the story to get to Holmes very soon. Read it as a Twain story, not as a Holmes pastiche.

  • I have to like it since it is always great to read Mark Twain any day. I don't feel that this story is to be ranked in with the best stories of Twain but that is only my opinion. I would hope all of us who still feel American Literature was defined by Twain's pen would consider reading and adding this piece to their collection. It is more than worth having.

  • Love Twain, this is an enjoyable quick read with a twinge of Dickens and of course A little Doyle. Classic Twain though. very entertaining!

  • Sorry it was unreadable.

  • As good a quick mystery as I could imagine,thanks.
    Revenge makes everyone dark, this can be retold often.
    I will use it.

  • Sad negative parody of Holmes by Twain.
