(I had a longer review written but Amazon didn't accept it somehow... So I'll keep this one shorter.)
I bought this book because I am writing an essay for university about digital media and Sherlock. I expected a lot more insight than I actually received, especially for such a steep price (says the poor student).
Positive about this book: - A closer look at "traditional" Sherlockians and the Great Game they are playing - "But it's the Solar System" (Scott-Zechlin) shows what astronomy meant in Victorian London in relation to science and how it is shaped in the adaption - drawing attention to the blatant Orientalism in The Blind Banker - "Critical Reception by the Media" details critics' responses to season 1 - "Holmes Abroad" alludes to reader-response-theory (however briefly) and how this affects perception of non-British fans
The essay that reconciled me with the book: - "Sherlock as Cyborg: Bridging Mind and Body" in which Francesca Coppa compares Cumberbatch's Sherlock to Spock and other not-quite-human species and why they are so popular with (female) fans. She also details how fanfiction has explored asexuality and asexual aspects of Holmes thanks to the new adaption and manages to present fandom and slash fandom as equal. Then again, Coppa is cofounder of the OTW that also runs archiveofourown.org, so she knows what slash fandom looks like from the inside.
1. OUT-DATEDNESS. This book was written during the hiatus between seasons one and two. Why, though? The authors mention that they are aware they are dealing with an unfinished canon - in the conclusion, mind you - but don't say why they wrote it nevertheless.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
