Meet the Author

EDGAR ALLAN POE (1809–1849) was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic.

FELIX BENNETT grew up in Bradford in northern England, and cut short a math and astronomy degree at University College, London, in order to spend more time as an illustrator. He trained at Bradford, then at the Camberwell School of Art. He now lives and works in London.

GILL TAVNER was an English Teacher and Head of Department before turning to writing when she had young children of her own. She has also taught English in South East Asia, worked as a personal trainer, been a management trainee in an insurance company, led treks in Africa, run her own business and painted fake tattoos on Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Perhaps it is this variety that makes her such a versatile writer.

    Great Short Summer Read

    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.

    more from this reviewer

    Nice book for a longer train ride! Other passengers will enjoy your features change from tension and disgust to amusement!

    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.
