あらすじ・解説

This is a story from the Murders in the Rue Morgue (The Dupin Stories) collection.

Auguste Dupin, investigator extraordinaire, was the remarkable creation of Edgar Allan Poe. Written in the 1840s, Poe presented the acutely observant, shrewd but idiosyncratic character who, with his chronicler, provided the inspiration for the more famous Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.The Dupin Stories include the following:

  • "The Murders in the Rue Morgue"
  • "The Mystery of Marie Roget"
  • "The Purloined Letter"

    Audible制作部より

    In Paris, Detective Dupin and his sidekick deduce the truth behind an unsolved murder. Edgar Allan Poe based this story on the disappearance of a real woman called the "Beautiful Cigar Girl". With its focus on reasoning, "The Mystery of Marie Roget" sounds like an essay rather than short story. So, characters fall flat at times. Kary Shale saves the day here. Shale won Reader of the Year for his performance of Life of Pi and an Audie Award for Slumdog Millionaire. A personable tenor, Shale handles French easily. In his clear diction and deliberate pacing, Shale's experience shows. Orchestral music sets the tone and period of the piece.

    can understand why this one is not popular

    Sigh. Interesting as an exposition of logic and reason, but VERY verbose. I can understand why this one is not one of Poe’s popular works.
    I appreciate Shale’s narration of this story.

    Rustling of papers spoils this

    Decent enough reading by a talented voice actor, but unbelievably there is a rustling of papers towards the end! The story seems over-complex to me, and without a definite resolution.
