あらすじ・解説

Fine-art aficionado. Master of disguise. Jewelry expert. Historian. Gentleman. Burglar. Arsene Lupin is all of these and more. In 1905, Maurice Leblanc introduced his gentleman burglar in the story "L'Arrestation d'Arsène Lupin". Shortly thereafter, the stories were collected as one single volume. In these charming adventures, Lupin orchestrates a myriad of extravagant heists in the very face of the determined Inspector Ganimard. With his sparkling wit, his sharp eye for detail, and his incredible gift of anticipation, Lupin carries off the most amazing thefts and never leaves a clue behind. And yet he is ever the embodiment of gentlemanly manners and old-school chivalry. Take these first adventures for a whirl, and witness how he measures up when he goes toe to toe with the redoubtable Sherlock Holmes himself!

The Original Gentleman Thief

These are the first tales of the legendary thief, Arsene Lupin. I'm not very familiar with French literature, but this collection gave me the same feeling as reading some good Victorian literature. If you're a fan of that genre, heist movies, or the Lupin III anime series you should enjoy this.

Each adventure is as unique as the treasures Lupin steals and the French prose is gorgeously translated. Sherlock Holmes fans are especially in for a treat. Finally, B.J. Harrison is excellent as a narrator. Very highly recommended!

Outstanding!

If you could sum up The Extraordinary Adventures of Arsene Lupin, Gentleman Burglar [Classic Tales Edition] in three words, what would they be?

Excellent quality reading

Any additional comments?

There is plenty of info on Maurice LeBlanc's Lupin series available online so I'll leave this to the quality of the product itself.
If it was at all possible I'd give this ten stars. I've been listening to audiobooks for ages. Professional ones, hobbyist ones, Librivox ones, computer generated ones... This is really one of the most enjoyable listens I've had. B. J. Harrison really caught the mood and tenor of the Arsene Lupin stories. While sometimes an audiobook can be a slog to get through because I just wind up wanting to find out what happens next, despite the reader... in the case of these stories, I look forward to the next chance I get to listen to them with joy.
B. J. has also read the the crossover book Arsene Lupin vs Sherlock Holmes, which I'll eagerly listen to next.
If you are out there reading this reveiw, Mr. Harrison, might I request adding to this collection with The Hollow Needle, which is distantly related to Lupin vs Holmes... or La Comtesse de Cagliostro (Memoirs of Arsene Lupin) which IMO is one of the finest Lupin stories written?
Thank you for doing these, they are really a treat!

Over 100 years old and still amazing

I could never have expected that this book that was released in 1907 would still hold up today. In the past I tried to read Sherlock Holmes and found it a chore the same at times with some lesser grade Poirot stories, but this one is beyond amazing. I was actually fooled by the twist in the first story I should have seen it coming but I didn't.
Lupin himself isn't a alright perfect being with no character he is human with desires and wants and a personality that feeds on our own most selfish fantasies and I never tire of his narration or his exuberance for life. When Sherlock Holmes fails he refuses to ever talk about it again and grumbles if he is reminded of it, Poirot never fails but still he is humble and kind in spite of his egotism, when Lupin fails he tells his best friend about it and they both laugh at the stupidity of it all

I love this book an insane amount

A companion for those of us enjoying “Lupin” on Netflix. The French Arsene Lupin tales are new to me.

G(old) Book

I listened to this because of the tv show, it did not disappoint, lived up to my expectations, which where pretty high after watching the tv show which I also found pretty great.
Its the sort of G(old) (old but gold) type of book that feels fresh and fun, makes you feel like you are solving a puzzle as you go, and are satisfied with solving it, even though you know its going to be easy to solve.

Overall unbelievable and over reaching

The story is just to unbelievable even for fiction. Considering the time that it occurred in the plat is over reaching. The narration and performance are great.

Inspiration for hit Netflix TV show

Having thoroughly enjoyed the recent Netflix TV series Lupin staring the amazing Omar Sy, I was keen to find out more about the "Gentleman Burglar" and chose to listen to this collection of original stories from the early twentieth century by creator Maurice Lablanc.
These self contained short stories are amusing for their cunningness as you would expect. This collection contains the story of Marie Antoinette's necklace which forms that basis for the first Netflix series. While the TV show is heavily stylised we need to remember that these stories were written in a different era and has a similar feeling to watching Sherlock and then reading Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The parallels between our French burglar and English detective do not end there and Holmes makes an appearance in one of the stories in this collection. I am looking forward to the next installment of the Netflix series and, in the meantime, these books are a good stopgap.

Simply Brilliant

The reader describes the story in an excellent manner with the right voice and tone that describes each character really well in the story.
Especially the main character Arsene Lupin, shows charming wit and all, great voice actor to portray
Story direction was clear too so really good purchase :)
