Publisher's Summary

Edgar Allan Poe is the undisputed "Father" of the Detective story and his Detective C. Auguste Dupin set the stage for eccentric, logic-wielding sleuths like Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot. This is the first audio collection of Poe's detective stories, plus one non-Dupin detective tale, "Thou Art the Man". Celebrity narrator Bronson Pinchot delivers amazing performances of "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Mystery of Marie Rogêt", "The Purloined Letter", and "Thou Art the Man".

    "No comprehension of Poe"

    Bronson Pinchot reads as if he does not know what any of the words mean, I regret this, should have gone with the older recordings.

    "Stop The Music!"

    I wonder if the companies that produce these recordings have any understanding of their customers?

    Good reading by Bronson Pinchot, but badly marred by the insertion of what I guess is supposed to be "creepy atmospheric" music at the beginning and end of each story. I do not understand this practice, and I don't know of anyone who is a regular listener who thinks it adds anything but annoyance to these productions.

    This collection has the three Dupin stories, and also includes the very little known "Thou Art Man," which is not a Dupin story at all. A better selection might have been "The Gold Bug" which is a "Dupin" story, but with "Dupin" changed into William Legrand.

    "Please don't buy this audiobook, it's very bad"

    This is definitely a very bad audiobook, in fact the narrator, Mr.Pinchot, simulates a kind of French accent, that sounds terrible and it's totally annoying. I understand that he wants to mimic the main character of the novels, Mr. Dupin, but unfortunately the final result is very bad. It sounds very odd, please don't buy this audiobook.

    "Wordy"

    I wanted a more condenced version, I guess I knew the story line and wanted to be refreshed.
