The Murders in Rue Morgue (Adaptation): Oxford Bookworms Library | [Edgar Allan Poe, Jennifer Bassett (adaptation)]

The Murders in Rue Morgue (Adaptation): Oxford Bookworms Library

The room was on the fourth floor, and the door was locked - with the key on the inside. The windows were closed and fastened - on the inside. The chimney was too narrow for a cat to get through. So how did the murderer escape? And whose were the two angry voices heard by the neighbours as they ran up the stairs? Nobody in Paris could find any answers to this mystery.Except Auguste Dupin, who could see further and think more clearly than other people.

Publisher's Summary

The room was on the fourth floor, and the door was locked - with the key on the inside. The windows were closed and fastened - on the inside. The chimney was too narrow for a cat to get through. So how did the murderer escape? And whose were the two angry voices heard by the neighbours as they ran up the stairs?

Nobody in Paris could find any answers to this mystery - except Auguste Dupin, who could see further and think more clearly than other people. The answers to the mystery were all there, but only a clever man could see them.

An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Edgar Allan Poe original by Jennifer Bassett.

    "Dumbed Down"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is a "dumbed down" version of the story. Most unfortunately the description does not indicate the rewritten and edited text. The missing parts are really part of the beauty of Poe's writing.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Poe is a remarkable storyteller, and the ending does not disappoint.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was far too friendly, light-hearted.


    What character would you cut from The Murders in Rue Morgue (Adaptation)?

    All the characters are vital to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    This adaptation was poorly done. While the description says it is unabrigded.
