Overview

THE MYSTERY OF THE YELLOW ROOM....IS A GOOD LOCKED-ROOM MYSTERY AND A DETECTIVE NOVEL. 235 PAGES IN PRINT! ALSO AUTHOR OF "THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA". ALSO ON TLC BOOKS!

Mlle. Strangerson, the daughter of a famous scientist, is brutally attacked in her bedroom. The window is barred, and the door is double bolted. No one, it seems, could have left the room. However, somehow, he did, leaving strange clues - a bloody imprint of a hand on the wall, a cap, and a hankerchief.

MYSTERY OF THE YELLOW ROOM is pure genius. Leroux winds and twists together meticoulous detail, interesting psychology, and seemingly impossible occurrences that produce a truly enjoyable and shocking finale. This is a wonderful read, and it is great for a rainy day.

For sheer originality and ingenuity this story may be reckoned one of the best tales since Gaboriau. Seldom does a detective story end with so total a surprise, which nevertheless, seems logical and natural. For the many who delight in following the
intricacies of crime and the avenging hand of Justice, this book has rare charms.

I challenge anyone to guess the solution. Read this book yourself and I am sure you will agree: Gaston Leroux created a masterpiece with "The Mystery of the Yellow Room".

Enjoyable story. Terribletranslation to ebook withmany errors making reading a challenge

This particular version is scanned so poorly that it is virtually unreadable. If you want this story, buy a different version. Note to B&N: Why would you allow a book like this a place in your inventory?

If I may be so bold as to suggest it, I believe The Yellow Room rivals even Agatha Christie's finest. The literary style is easy to read (even with all the typos from digitizing.) If you like mysteries, read this one!

Really good mystery; really badly scanned edition. Look elsewhere for a copy.

I have repeatedly tried to read past page 56 in this version, but to no avail for I'm continually returned to page 28. I suggest that you Google the title and read it for free.

It was a.good book but eerily similar to Poe's "Murders in the Rue Morgue". Even the main characters are uncomfortably similar.
