A series of exploits told by the gentleman burglar himself (and then retold via the narrator/his friend), in which he pulls off impressive thefts in cool disguises, cleverly eludes the coppers at every turn, and charms the heck out of everyone around him. Think Sherlock Holmes, but on the other side of the crime, and French. In other words, this one was a hoot. Definitely recommended. ( )

Amusing. Good to procrastinate cleaning rooms. ( )

Hello? Is anybody here? Anybody?


Okay so now I'm thinking, what's the point of leaving a review? None, I guess. But then I do have the place all to myself, nice! Man, I'm going back here whenever I need a break. It's so quiet, I almost hate to leave... ( )

To Pierre Lafitte.

My Dear Friend:
You have thrust me upon a route where I never believed that I would venture, and in which I have found so much pleasure and literary allurement that it seems but just to inscribe your name at the head of this volume, and thereby prove to you my sentiments of affectionate and faithful gratitude.
M. L.
