Normally you don't tell people you are reading a book about chess, because "that's so nerdy", but when I answered their question about what I was reading, well, that seemed to be "nerdy even for [me]". Ofcourse, this is not a book for the majority of people. It's a book for those few people like us, assuming you found this book, because you are at least slightly interested in chess problems and Sherlock Holmes.
That being said, you have to be more of a chess fan than of a Holmes fan. Those little stories are fine, but the enjoyment comes from the chess mysteries. I found myself laughing about some of the solutions, feeling stupid to think there could not possibly be any solution to the problem at all. At some point, Smullyan even goes as far as to present a problem where he can proof there is a solution, even though he can not show it. Great stuff.
As this book can also be seen as a collection of chess problems, the stories will disappear slowly at some stage, but that's okay, because you don't have to read the whole book in one go. You can also just save some riddles for later. After all, there aren't that many of these riddles out there.
