At this point I am about 25% of the way through.
My observations so far are that I'm still interested (which is good), Holmes is not depicted badly although his artistic side is a little more in evidence than I'm used to. The only downside so far is the large parts of the book where we have to jump out of the main narrative to digest background information necessary to understand the plot.
Based on my reading so far I'd give it 7/10.
