The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King Book Summary

The Twentieth-Anniversary Edition of the First Novel of the Acclaimed Mary Russell Series by Edgar Award–Winning Author Laurie R. King.

An Agatha Award Best Novel Nominee • Named One of the Century's Best 100 Mysteries by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association

In 1915, Sherlock Holmes is retired and quietly engaged in the study of honeybees in Sussex when a young woman literally stumbles onto him on the Sussex Downs. Fifteen years old, gawky, egotistical, and recently orphaned, the young Mary Russell displays an intellect to impress even Sherlock Holmes. Under his reluctant tutelage, this very modern, twentieth-century woman proves a deft protégée and a fitting partner for the Victorian detective. They are soon called to Wales to help Scotland Yard find the kidnapped daughter of an American senator, a case of international significance with clues that dip deep into Holmes's past. Full of brilliant deduction, disguises, and danger, The Beekeeper's Apprentice, the first book of the Mary Russell–Sherlock Holmes mysteries, is "remarkably beguiling" (The Boston Globe).

The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Laurie R. King) Book Reviews

I loved this bookI thought the characters created a sense of fun and sarcasm with them everywhere which made it very entertaining I loved this book.Score: 5/5

Hooked on the seriesI started reading these books during a fall bout of pneumonia and read all 12 books in the series in 6 weeks!! I love this series! Better written than Conan Doyle's originals..Score: 5/5

Intimidation or Revelation?Is it possible to read Conan Doyle or Laurie King without experiencing the bitter taste of intimidation? Fore make no doubt about it, you are either scared off or seduced in when reading either one. It is a mixed bag with them. You have to keep up when reading Doyle or King, and this can be difficult to do. Both of them spare little time encouraging their slower readers, Doyle more so than King because Doyle is happy to sprint ahead and leave you behind with a catch me if you can sort of challenge. King is a little kinder, but both expect their readers to make an effort to pay attention, or reading them can be punishing. Whereas true effort brings the reward they offer to those who choose to keep up and experience the plot and character revelations both authors want for their readers, and The Beekeeper's Apprentice is a case in point. King offers her readers many opportunities to experience her plot and character revelations, but readers could become hopelessly confused if they don't keep up and pay attention which brings us back to my original question: is the Beekeeper's Apprentice intimidating or revealing? I think it can be both. heir readers, and The Beekeeper,s Apprentice.Score: 5/5

One of my favorite booksThis was recommended by my boss when I worked at a bookstore, and I was very grateful for his advice. What a wonderful book! The characters are riveting..Score: 5/5

Not gripping for meLove to get into a book I cannot put down or wait to open it again. I loved the story and want to read some Arthur Conan Doyle books on Sherlock Holmes to compare literary styles. Just didn’t grab me but it did hold my interest and will read more on Mary Russell..Score: 4/5

Eh..I ended up skipping all the middle of the book. It's cute. But to many events going on..Score: 2/5

One of my all time favoritesI was introduced to this book about 6 years ago and have read it a couple times a year since then. The characters are very vibrant and interesting and I love the use of vocabulary to underline their intelligence. I don't think I could ever get tired of reading it. The other novels in the series are also very good, but this is my favorite.Score: 5/5
