Poe's Detective: The Dupin Stories | [Edgar Allan Poe]

Poe's Detective: The Dupin Stories

Edgar Allan Poe is the undisputed "Father" of the Detective story and his Detective C. Auguste Dupin set the stage for eccentric, logic-wielding sleuths like Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. This is the first audio collection of Poe's detective stories, plus one non-Dupin detective tale, "Thou Art the Man".

    "Stop The Music!"

    I wonder if the companies that produce these recordings have any understanding of their customers?

    Good reading by Bronson Pinchot, but badly marred by the insertion of what I guess is supposed to be "creepy atmospheric" music at the beginning and end of each story. I do not understand this practice, and I don't know of anyone who is a regular listener who thinks it adds anything but annoyance to these productions.

    This collection has the three Dupin stories, and also includes the very little known "Thou Art Man," which is not a Dupin story at all. A better selection might have been "The Gold Bug" which is a "Dupin" story, but with "Dupin" changed into William Legrand.

    "Wordy"

    I wanted a more condenced version, I guess I knew the story line and wanted to be refreshed.

    "No comprehension of Poe"

    Bronson Pinchot reads as if he does not know what any of the words mean, I regret this, should have gone with the older recordings.
