My wellspring of wisdom says it's pretty good.

Gosick is an engaging early 20th century occult mystery thriller with a little romance on top. The setting is an academy in a fake country in an alternate universe Europe on the brink of another world war. Of course Japan exists and of course a Japanese student is one of the main protagonists. If you can suspend disbelief and overlook the convenient plot advancement it's a very entertaining anime. What really shines is studio Bones' gorgeous animation and the excellent English dub. Kujou screaming "Victoriiiique!" some 472 times gets tiresome. The ending to the overarching plot seemed a bit rushed. I didn't buy the explanation behind hair-guy maintaining that crazy hairstyle. Still, I feel Gosick is a ride well worth the price.

Combined the fragments of Chaos & find a decent show here.

Kazuya Kujou travels to a fictional country around the time when a world war is about to start. He is seen as strange by a majority of the people in the school but he finds a fellow outcast in Victorique de Blois. She has a natural ability at solving difficult mysteries. The show revolves around mysteries being solved as romance slowly develops in the shadow of a conspiracy. In the end their is manipulation and you find who is pulling the strings and for what purpose as well as see how the pawns are used. Victorique is a solid character but not all the others rise to her level in the show. This series should've been longer in my opinion to fully flush out more details as things seem to speed up too fast towards the end. The animation is great and the music a little above average. A decent show with early 1900's vibe and very nice animation.
