Extraordinary Adventures of Arsène Lupin, Gentleman-Burglar (version 2)

Book cover
By: (1864-1941)

This collection of independent stories first published between 1905 and 1907 in the magazine Je Sais Tout recounts the tales of Arsène Lupin, the famous gentleman-burglar: the first story marks the introduction of the character to the public, and its success encouraged author Maurice Leblanc to write several others, collected and published as a book in 1907. Arsène Lupin would go on to be the main character in several short stories and novels, written by Leblanc and others, and whose legacy would appear also in comics, movies and videogames, becoming the icon of the affable and charming man who, choosing to walk on the wrong side of law, still can be a force for good.

We enjoyed the pleasant sensation of being separated from the world, living, as it were, upon an unknown island, and consequently obliged to be sociable with each other.

Subject: The Extraordiary Adventures of Arsene Lupin
A good book, though the arrogance of Lupin is a bit much, written to rival that of Sherlock Homes I'm sure. The narrators are good throughout, though some are less enjoyable to listen to than others.
