Fantômas by Marcel Allain
By: (1885-1969)

Fantômas is a thrilling and captivating novel that follows the cunning and elusive criminal mastermind, Fantômas, as he wreaks havoc throughout Paris. The story is filled with suspense, danger, and unexpected twists that keep the reader on the edge of their seat from beginning to end.

Allain's writing style is engaging and his vivid descriptions bring the characters and settings to life. Fantômas himself is a complex and enigmatic character, and the protagonist, Inspector Juve, is a worthy adversary who is determined to bring him to justice.

The pacing of the novel is fast-paced and action-packed, making it a gripping page-turner that is difficult to put down. The plot is intricately woven with multiple subplots that all come together in a satisfying and thrilling conclusion.

Overall, Fantômas is a classic thriller that has stood the test of time and continues to enthrall readers with its mix of mystery, suspense, and intrigue. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good crime novel with a twist.

Book Description:
Fantômas is the first of 32 novels penned from 1911 to 1913 by Marcel Allain and Pierre Souvestre. The title character is a ruthless thief and killer, a bloodthirsty successor to LeBlanc's Arsène Lupin. The first five novels were made into silent film serials. The character and the movies caught the eye of the French Surrealists who admired the primal violence of Fantômas, as well as his portrayal in the films, which are considered landmarks in French Cinema. In Fantômas, the Marquise de Langrune is savagely murdered and Inspector Juve, who is obsessed with capturing Fantômas, arrives to solve the murder.

Subject: Fantomas
A very intriguing story full of twists and turns right to the end. The narration is good, though the self promotion of the narrator at the end of every chapter is annoying.
