For all its linguistic legerdomain, 'The Final Solution' is as hollow as the proverbial drum. Chabon's typical rich, involving, poetic characterization and highly stylized prose only emphasize the ho-hum-ness of this brief Sherlock Holmes novella. The actual mystery is never particularly involving, nor is the cheekily-veiled identity of the protagonist ever in doubt. Chabon seems more intent on experimenting with the genre conventions than telling a story, which is stunning from a writer this immortally gifted. A very disappointing novella, to be sure.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
