This book is terribly funny and will appeal to Holmes fans. I'm amazed it's not better-known.

A thoroughly enjoyable collection, worth a look for The Eight Strokes of the Clock alone. As a Holmes fan I can't quite bring myself to like Arsene Lupin versus Holmlock Shears, but I can appreciate a decent mystery when I see one; not necessarily enough to recommend it by itself though. The Golden Triangle is where long-form starts to suit Lupin, though it works more as an adventure than as a particularly airtight mystery. And The Confessions of Arsene Lupin are a decent starting point for some ...more

На всеки велик детектив трябва да му се опре поне веднъж в кариерата някой ярък криминален мастермайнд , че да го завлече една идея над благоприличието и размърдването на сиви мозъчни клетчици с друга , по-лична цел, освен основната свързана с общочовешкото добро. И ако на Шерлок Холмс му се падна веднъж всъщност не особено брилянтния Мориарти, то французите са се погрижили да отвърнат на английския удар с тяхно си шмекерджийско франсе, в чиито възможности е напълно и без особени усилия да поста ...more

This is, I think, a collection of four books of Lupin stories which vary in quality. Overall, it is still enjoyable read, but the longer stories suffer from being so, and I found some of the old fashioned morals a bit off-putting as they are generally from Lupin himself, or those we are meant to side with. If you do get the book, don't read the chapter titles in the contents page as there's a rather larger spoiler in there.

If you like Hercule Poirot, you will like Arsene Lupin. I don't think the Lupin mysteries are quite as deft as Poirot, and sometimes not all the threads come together, but the characters and the delicious interplay between the detective and his greatest and most admired criminal genius are really enjoyable.

I've read about 100 pages of this. I thought it was fun and quite enjoyed it, but now I've got the sense of what it's about and how it's written, I don't feel any need to carry on with it.
