Book Description

Notwithstanding my friendly relations with Lupin and the many flattering proofs of his confidence which he has given me, there is one thing which I have never been quite able to fathom, and that is the organization of his gang.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read Lupin's awesome adventures!! 16 décembre 1997

It's really a pity (almost a shame) that Amazon.com doesen't have a complete list of Leblanc's work. Anyway, if you're intersted, in Brazil contact Editora Nova Fronteira. I really don't know if they are still publishing the books, but you should try. Leblanc's hero and at the same time, villain, is Arsène Lupin, a frenchman talented for arts, literature, wining young ladies' hearts, and, oddly, robbery. He is the portrait of the frenchman, hilarious, independent, clever, and human. Leblanc hit the bull's eye creating this kind of character to go against the other mistery characters of his time, like Agatha Christie's Poirot, or Father Brown, or Inspetor Maigret and, most of all, the All-Time Brittanic Sherlock Holmes. As a matter of fact, there is a book called "Arsène Lupin meets Herlock Sholmes", figure out why! "Crystal Stopper" is one of the three Leblanc's books one must read, it's the first one. The other two are called "The hollow Needle" and "813". In these books, Lupin is involved with treasures, has to decipher complicated plots, has to save his life and lives of people he cares about. The most funny chapters are the ones he has to deal with the french police force. He even disguises himself as a well-known and respected inspector for years, and no one is able to discover him. If you're sick and tired of Miss Jane Marple and such characters, take your time and find Leblanc's books. Another good guess is "The teeth of the tiger", showing an older and tired, yet very alive, Arsène Lupin.
Follow him and discover his secrets, his passions, and his treasures.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This Kindle Version Is Missing Paragraphs of Texts 24 mars 2011
Par Sol T. Kim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Crystal Stopper is one of the most entertaining Arsene Lupin adventures. Lupin is put on the defensive from the opening and has to fight his way out of the hole in which he finds himself. I highly recommend the book and prefer it to other versions where Lupin basically plays the superman.

This particular Kindle version, however, is problematic. It is missing entire paragraphs from the book. Specifically, any time the original book paraphrases a letter or newspaper article, this version simply omits it. So frequently you get texts like the following (directly quoted):

Among the late news he found the following pargraphs:

In between other newspapers and prospectuses lay a letter. Lupin jumped when he say it. It was addressed:

"Oh," he gasped, "a letter from Gilbert!" It contained these few words:

Once again, Lupin spent a night alternating between sleeplessness and nightmares.

This is extremely frustrating and takes away a great deal from book. Again, I highly recommend the book but there must be a better e-version of the book than this one.

Besides this book I have also read :"IN PURSUIT OF ARSENE LUPIN" ,"ARSENE LUPIN vs HERLOCK SHOLMES","EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES OF ARSENE LUPIN" in the early '90's translated into greek. I was totally taken by the portrail of the character and by how well-written the book was!!! I've managed to convince my husband to read :"The Extraordinary Adventures... " (the only title we could get from the library) and he absolutely loved it!We have decided to buy all the titles we could find because they are worth having. All lovers of SHERLOCK HOLMES should give Arsene Lupin a try!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Non-Stopper for Arsene Lupin 14 novembre 2012
Par Karen Amrhein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"The Crystal Stopper" is a ripping tale, with non-stop intrigue, action, twists and turns, and a healthy dose of Lupin humor.

The story concerns the mysterious pursuit, appearances and disappearances -- and reappearances -- of a crystal decanter stopper. Why are so many people hot to get their hands on this seemingly worthless object? How is it being found and then lost again so readily? To say anything more about the plot is to risk revealing something, which would be to spoil some of the great fun in being carried along, with the irrepressible thief / scoundrel / hero Arsene Lupin, on this roller-coaster ride of a tale.

There's plenty of danger, narrow scrapes, cryptic clues, harrowing rescues, and clever ruses to keep you on the edge of your seat for many evenings of reading pleasure. If you like Lupin stories (or Raffles or The Saint), I can't imagine you won't love "The Crystal Stopper".
