I was fifteen when I first met Sherlock Holmes, fifteen years old with my nose in a book as I walked the Sussex Downs, and nearly stepped on him.

That’s is opening lines of The Beekeeper’s Apprentice and a book that I have read several times since the first time I read it when I was around 14-15 years old. The strange and wonderful thing is that it’s a book that never ceases to be anything other than enjoyable despite the countless times I’ve read it.

Mary Russell is a young girl when she stumbles over Sherlock Holmes in a field as he is painting bees with red and blue dots. Seems like an odd thing to do, but she quickly figures out why and tells him and then she really surprise him when she reveals that she is actually a girl under the boyish clothes she is wearing. And, that is the start of a friendship that will lead to her being accepted as his apprentice.

It’s a wonderful book. It’s one of those I return to when I feel the need to visit old friends. The story never gets boring; it feels rather like I’m still discovering new things about the book every time I read the book. ( )

Long retired, Sherlock Holmes quietly pursues his study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. He never imagines he would encounter anyone whose intellect matched his own, much less an audacious teenage girl with a penchant for detection. Miss Mary Russell becomes Holmes's pupil and quickly hones her talent for deduction, disguises and danger. But when an elusive villain enters the picture, their partnership is put to a real test. ( )

This was a tremendous novel, all the classic Sherlock characters, Mrs Hudson, Watson, Mycroft and even a helpful Lestrade. Along with the newest character to add to the Holmes cast, teenage Mary Russell who Holmes identifies with immediately. I'd recommend this novel to any fan of Sherlock Holmes who's looking for more stories after the Doyle cannon.

I definitely liked this more at the end than the beginning. I think I just needed to get used to the writing style. I had heard a lot of great things about this series and I do think it is well written. However, there was just nothing that drew me completely into the story. I never got really invested in any of the mysteries. I thought the last section was the best one and the most entertaining but the first two sections were a bit boring to me.
I don't particularly care about Sherlock Holmes but it was interesting to see his character reimagined here. I enjoyed the relationship between Mary and him that is developed throughout this story. There is a hint of romance between them, which may make some people uncomfortable as they do meet when she is quite young and there is a considerable age gap between them, but nothing actually happens in this book so I didn't mind.
I'm not opposed to reading more from this series, and there are a lot of other books in this series, but this type of more literary mystery doesn't tend to draw me in. In general, I have a hard time getting invested in historical mysteries. I do like seeing the character development, which may push me to read more from this series. ( )

What a treat. Immediately jumped in the next two books in this series; floored and oh, so surprised by the deep thinking of the theological discourse in which Mary engages. ( )
