I read this book because it was called the first murder mystery story. It was really great and could have imagined it being a short film. The only problem that I had was that the ending was disappointing. Poe could have gotten more in depth with how the murder was solved had it not been a short story, but I guess he had to finish it up quickly.

Auguste Dupin is introduced and my thoughts are: He is our role model? There is nothing special about him! But once he starts investigation, I get more and more involved. Dupin explains the case and solution to me as a friend which I envy for his cleverness and combinatory talents.
The story develops with each investigation piece put into place. Although the description of the violence and destruction of both murders is thrilling, I feel humoured at the end and wonder about Poes unusual idea for the culprit. Just find out yourself who committed a crime in the Rue Morgue!

I give it 2,5 of 5 stars, not because the story isn’t interesting, but because it is a short story, and I need about 300-500+ pages to be totally satisfied with a good book…

THE VERDICT

With this interesting and unpredictable detective story Poe shows his wit. You will be surprised by the story’s unusual logic.
