Product Description

From Amazon

Stangerson et sa fille Mathilde habitent le château du Glandier où ils poursuivent leurs recherches scientifiques. La presse annonce la tentative de meurtre sur Mathilde qui dormait dans la "Chambre Jaune". Alerté par ses cris, son père n'a pas vu d'assassin dans la pièce qui ne comporte qu'une porte et une seule fenêtre grillagée. Le jeune Rouletabille, reporter à l'Époque, se rend au Glandier avec Sainclair, son ami avocat. Ils y retrouvent M. de Marquet, le juge d'instruction obtus, Darzac, le fiancé de Mathilde à la conduite équivoque, le grand Fred Larsan, un policier renommé, et un mystérieux "homme vert"...

Vingt ans avant Tintin, Rouletabille préfigurait le reporter débrouillard. Sa jeunesse l'emporte sur des personnages plus hauts sur l'échelle sociale, trop coincés dans leurs convictions : c'est un nouveau siècle qui s'annonce. Écrite en 1907 par l'un des pères du polar français, cette histoire demeure l'archétype du problème de local clos. --Nicolas Mesplède

From the Back Cover

Un mystérieux et audacieux inconnu a tenté d'assassiner Mlle Stangerson. Il est parvenu à s'enfuir d'une chambre fermée de l'intérieur. En apparence, il n'existe qu'une seule explication il est passé à travers les murs. La police est sur les dents. Joseph Rouletabille, mi-journaliste mi-détective, mène sa propre enquête. À force de raisonnement et de déductions, il découvrira l'incroyable vérité.

Une histoire qui parait impossible et de plus en plus parait surnaturelle.
Mais l'explication vers la fin montre que l'auteur a bien emmene l'histoire et tout s'explique.
J'ai bien aime.

Très bon. Certains indices nous sont cachés, alors on ne peut résoudre nous-mêmes l'énigme... Sinon, bien écrit, malgré beaucoup d'effets littéraires pour nous égarer.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The whole plot keeps you interested, while learning, and improving your French reading skills. I am currently in my intermediate French college courses, and even with that said, I kept a French dictionary handy, for those words I still did not understand, and kept a list of them as I was reading this book, so I could go back to them later, and learn them completely, for that is the only way one will master French.

Not only will you learn new French words, but by reading this book, it reinforces how to write French correctly. What did I like particularly about this was the whole interesting story line, while improving my French reading skills. The book will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Fun read. An interesting (but less compelling) version of Sherlock Holmes--especially because of that trick of the closed room--if the room is hermetically sealed, how did the killer get out? I liked all the red herrings, and the enigmatic phrases that haunted the narration: "The presbytery has lost nothing of its charm, nor the garden its brightness." Provocative. But once you find out how the trick was done--and who did it--it really is a "solution de facilité." Contrived. I'll take Sherlock any day, with all his oddities, over the know-it-all adolescent hero of this book. Nevertheless, it is a good read, for its closed-room hypothesis as well as for its interesting place in literature history.

19th century "murder in a closed room" mystery. I enjoyed the romantic literary style with those long sentences, tenses that no one uses anymore, the old fashioned characters (the long suffering suitor, the dutiful daughter, the devoted servants, the scientist father, the evil murderer, the faithful sidekick, the confident hero... ). Some parts of the novel are slow but I still enjoyed the book very much. If you are not a French native speaker, relax, do not stop for every word or tense you do not understand, move on and enjoy. Bonne lecture!
