Rouletabille ne m'a jamais inspirée comme personnage, donc ses aventures ne m'interpellent pas particulièrement. l'alternance entre un style ampoulé et une analyse mathématique rend la lecture fort déséquilibrée. L'émotivité excessive des personnages est aussi assez éprouvante.
L'histoire même est plutôt sympathique et fait très grand-guignolesque. Il est très marqué par son époque, au moment de émergence du genre. ( )

First words
If we consider briefly the twentieth century's most popular film monsters: Dracula, the Frankenstein creature, the wolfman, King Kong, Jekyll and Hyde, and the Phantom of the Opera, we are struck by how much sympathy each of them demands-and gets-from the same audiences that look forward to being frightened by them.

No descriptions found.

The suspenseful sequel to the genre-defining The Mystery of the Yellow Room Set in a medieval castle on the Cte d'Azur, this classic locked room mystery reunites journalist-turned-detective Joseph Rouletabille; Mathilde Stangerson, daughter of a famed French-American scientist; and master of disguise Frdric Larsan. Stangerson and her sweetheart Robert Darzac have just married and taken up residence in the Square Tower of the Fort of Hercules when Larsan strikes again. The attack leaves Stangerson frightened and confused, not only because she thought her nemesis dead, but also because she cannot figure out how he entered and escaped her room without notice. Only one man is capable of matching wits with Larsan, but when Rouletabille arrives in the South of France to investigate, he finds himself drawn deeper into his own past and his memories of a mysterious woman in black. Best known as the creator of The Phantom of the Opera, author Gaston Leroux takes the locked room mystery to terrifying new heights in The Perfume of the Lady in Black. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.… (more)
