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.
