(4,614 Sterne; 35 Bewertungen)

This crime novel was possibly the first to involve a 'locked room mystery', in which an attempted murder takes place, but with no obvious way for the perpetrator to have escaped. The author, Gaston Leroux, is better known as the author of The Phantom of the Opera: prepare to feel the hairs standing up on the back of your neck...

Excellent Mystery

(5 Sterne)

From Wikipedia: The crime takes place at the Chateau du Glandier, located in the forest, near the road leading to Sainte-Geneviève-des-Bois and Montlhéry. The daughter of a famous scientist is found the victim of attempted murder. The strange thing is the room is locked from the inside and there are no other ways in. A police detective is involved but the young journalist Joseph Rouletabille is more concerned with unraveling the mystery by use of reasoning and logic. My comments: The clues are all there - can you figure it out? I'll say that I didn't, but once it's revealed, well of course, why didn't I see that? It's a fun book to listen to and very well read by a wide variety of talented Librivox volunteers.

Mystery of the Yellow Room

This is a good book. I would have preferred a single performer, however, beggars can not be choosers. This book having been written in I think French, it is not like I would be reading it myself. I am just glad to have come across it on LibriVox. The mystery is a good one as far as the premise and I like how the story is conveyed, with it not coming from Routible’s perspective, but a secondary. However, I would be remiss if I did not state that the deductive reasoning in this while not bad, shows it’s age a bit when placed against other authors and their fictional thinkers (detectives/journalists/sleuths). Still though, I give this mystery novel a resounding 5 stars.

loved this reading!
