Publisher's Summary

The first of Maurice Leblanc's collections about his devilish, debonair rogue, Arsène Lupin, Gentleman-Burglar presents eight dazzling short stories that display some of Lupin's greatest thefts and escapes. Lupin robs from within prison, leaves its walls with ease, steals priceless diamonds from the rich and outwits the greatest detective of all: Sherlock Holmes. Witty, cunning, and taunting, Lupin is a genius on the wrong side of the law, although his noble code of ethics and Robin-Hood-like ways often see him use his talents for good.

Great value

I have lived so much. This is a French-language classic. I have listened to it on Audible, and it was so fascinating that the narrator had a French accent. The narration was of good quality.
How did I found this book? The Lupin Netflix series inspired me to search for the original text. Both a very hilarious and adventurous.

Not as Good as I Expected

I prefer the adventures of Holmes and Max Carrados, the melodramas of Hugh Drummond and the puzzles of Poirot, Inspector Alleyn, Father Brown, and others, over more recent, more lurid productions. So, my expectations were high for Arsene Lupin. But somehow, he failed to grip.

Maybe familiarity with Raffles robbed them of their savor. Maybe the style or pacing fell short. At times, I would have appreciated greater detail (how a door is made to seem to latch but doesn’t, for example); it would have made Lupin’s ingenuity more ingenious.

Certainly, the psychology he employs is clever, the stories do get better as you proceed through the collection, and David Timson’s performance lacks none of his usual charm. But I wasn’t captivated.
