Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is one of America's greatest and most dark and mysterious writers. The circumstances surrounding his untimely death are still unknown, as is what made him tick. Part of the American Romantic Movement, Poe is best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, and he was one of the first Americans to master the art of the short story.

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.

You could find a complete works versus one story. Is it even complete?

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.
