    One thought on “The Secret Of The Night”

    1. This entry into the Rouletabille series was not as endearing as the previous books were. Even though it was still very good, I don't know I didn't have the same feel after finishing it like I did with the first two. I miss that Sinclair wasn't apart of the adventure (he is after all Rouletabille's Watson) like the previous book it ends on a cliffhanger as Rouletabille returns to Paris. Things I liked about the book:- Rouletabille actually was shown to not be a step ahead of everyone in this book [...]

    2. This was the second of Leroux's Rouletabille books that i've read and it holds up just as well as the first. The main thing I like about Leroux's mysteries is that they are exactly that, a mystery. I listened to this in audiobook form while working and I was constantly trying to think out the puzzle as I worked. The structure of the story is a little bit clumsy in places, a slight edit would have helped the flow of the narrative but it was entertaining all the same. Rouletabille certainly gives [...]

    3. I found this book during an aimless exploration of Kindle deals. I chose it strictly by chance but would later discover that the author, Gaston Leroux, was the original author of Phantom of the Opera.The story, as it turns out, is one of a series that follows the exploits of Joseph Rouletabille, a French reporter/detective. In this case he is brought to Russia by the Czar to protect General Trebassof, whose assassination has been plotted by the revolutionaries—the Nihilists. Rouletabille is ai [...]

    4. Παρά τον αρχικό γρήγορο ρυθμό, έχασα τον ενδιαφέρον μου περίπου από τη μέση και μετά και το τέλος δε με ικανοποίησε. Η αθώωση του υπόπτου προσώπου γίνεται με βάση τις παρατηρήσεις του ερευνητή, που ο αναγνώστης δε μπορεί να γνωρίζει· τις δέχεται.

    5. The third Joseph Rouletabille thriller has a few moments of greatness, but never really comes close to matching the excellence of the first two novels. Somehow the threat of unknown, unseen terrorists and assassins cannot match that of one lone murderer.

    6. J'aime beaucoup le personnage de Rouletabille, et c'était la première fois que je lisais une des oeuvres originales (je n'avais vu que des adaptations cinématographiques avant ça). Le vrai bon point est que j'aime autant le personnage en livre qu'au cinéma.Maintenant, je ne sais pas si c'était le meilleur livre par lequel commencer, vu que j'ai trouvé assez difficile de s'attacher à la mission de Rouletabille dans ce roman. Protéger un homme ? Noble mission, bien sûr. Protéger un homm [...]

    7. Convoluted plot. Well worth the time to read. Diabolical main character. Evenly paced narration performed by Don W. Jenkins. Recommended.

    8. the narrator of this edition seems to think that French and Russian accents are the same accent. i wish i had read the print version of this one rather than listened to it, as the audio colored my judgement of the story. Leroux does the slow, meandering build that is stylistically consistent with mysteries of the time, and which i have enjoyed in his other work, but the grating narration imbued me with a desire for the book to hurry up and end already.

    9. Honestly have no idea what was going on in this book. That's what I get for trying to listen to the audiobook during major cases of road rage, I guess.
