Key to the evolution of the detective story

Arsene Lupin is a key figure in the development of the modern mystery, but he's unknown by many in the English speaking world. This set of stories, ranging in quality, brings the anti-hero to life relatively successfully. Of course if things like "knowing the name of the translator" or "understanding the publication history" are important to you, this is not the best choice. Because there is zero context provided. But if you just want to immerse yourself in France's answer to Sherlock Holmes (featured here as "Herlock Sholmes"), this is a fun and easy way to do it.

Tip: I listened straight through, which might have been a little too much Arsene Lupin at once.You might want to break it up into smaller sized bites.

average story. A bit tiresome really.

struggled to finish. don't really get a feel of arsene lupin, he remains a shadowy figure without the connection that one gets with Sherlock Holmes.

great collection...

I particularly enjoy the adventures with Sherlock Holmes (Herlock Sholmes). Two masters mentally crossing swords in the streets of Paris. Great work.

Good book, weird translation

The stories have all the attributes that make me want to read them. Just the translation seems too literally, creating weird sentences. Probably done by a native French speaking person and not English, but that kind of gives it something authentic as well. Can’t help wondering about the inspiration of the writer. He mentions Holmes a lot, so I like to imagine Professor Moriarty in his Younger days. Good stories, first were a bit predictable, the one I’m listening now is the first proper mystery that would make even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle proud of his admirer.

Awful reader!

I have not got beyond the introduction, which is school essay level in content (B-), because the reader always pronounces Lupin as if it was the flower. At least pronounce the main character's name right!
