I still struggled on to keep reading, even after the author put himself in the novel and had him meet Rouletabille. But I threw in the towel when I got to the author trying to describe where everyone was headed and the multiple ways in and out of the place and none of it made any sense. Frankly the whole book premise didn't make sense. I totally skipped to the end just to see how it ended and thanked goodness that I did not force myself to keep reading. There is too much information in this one and not enough dialogue.
We have Sanclair just telling us the readers everything. And Rouletabille feels like a totally different person in this one. I can see why this book was not well thought of by people. I know that there were subsequent mysteries starring Rouletabille, but I am going to pass on them. Jul 05, Victoria rated it liked it. This felt more crafted than the first, which is quite a feat considering the first one was nothing to sneeze at.
The reader learns more about Rouletabille this round, back to his childhood and what sparks his memories of the lady in black in the first book. It's not required to read The Mystery of the Yellow Room first, but I think it enhances the reading to already have a little idea as to who this Ro I much preferred this over the first Joseph Rouletabille book, The Mystery of the Yellow Room. It's not required to read The Mystery of the Yellow Room first, but I think it enhances the reading to already have a little idea as to who this Rouletabille fellow is.
Like I said, the glimpse into his childhood doesn't hurt either. Like Yellow Room this mystery involves a locked room, but overall this story felt more complete.
I was surprised that this was published only a year after Yellow Room - Leroux seemed to have grown as a writer in that one year, using nice literary tricks like throwing himself into the story as a background character. He did it when it wasn't the next best thing in literature, so even now it feels fresh. Rouletabille was off to another adventure at the end of Lady in Black , but these were the only two books I actually owned. Eventually I'll check to see if the library has any of these books, but for now it's time to move on from Leroux - as tempting as it is to stop everything and find the third book which appears to take place in Russia.

First reason is that the solving or even understanding of the mystery requires a familiarity with the map of the castle. Being as this was an e-book, there was no map. Second reason was I that although I thoroughly enjoyed "Phantom of the Opera" and managed to finish "The Yellow Room," this was just too overwritten, overblown, and just downright purple. Consider this--there's a horrific storm blowing outside. The narrator goes to check on the main character. He finds the main character standing in front of an open window "blowing kisses at the storm. This book is a suspenseful but overwrought mystery by the author of The Phantom of the Opera.
The book is very atmospheric but it is steeped in so much detail and overheated drama that it is at times hard to follow the actual of progress of the solution of the mystery. De B, on voit C.

Comme pour le premier l'histoire est extremement interessante, le mystere est fabuleux Apr 11, Sabine marked it as to-read. I began it just after the "mistery of the yellow chamber" The story line is a sequel to The Mystery of the Yellow Room. It has the same characters and villain. Larsen is supposed to be dead.
People keep seeing him in train stations, on a boat, etc Is he really dead? He is a master of disguise. I liked the story, it was very Gothic and spooky. Part of this takes place in Paris, the other part is set in an old castle. The mystery is based on rooms in the castle. My Kindle version had a map, but I was too lazy to go back and forth. You get very detailed descriptions on how Room R door connects with Room S and leads to a courtyard.
I sat on the edge of my seat. There was a terrible storm breaking, they had locked up the castle, expecting an attack from Larsen. I liked how Gaston Leroux wrote tension that you could feel along with the characters. It was fun to see which one of the characters might be disguised as Larsen.
I found Joseph Rouletabille to be very odd, almost annoying. I would recommend reading The Mystery of the Yellow Room and if you are wondering what happened at the end of that story, read The Perfume of the Lady in Black.

Un superbe roman policier! L'auteur a qui plus est une plume vraiment remarquable. Un grand roman et un grand auteur! Darker and more sinister than 'The Mystery of the Yellow Room', this sequel builds an almost gothic atmosphere, until it feels like the characters are imprisoned in their own drama.
Sadly the quality of the Rouletabille series declined after this. I gave it two stars because it is Gaston Leroux and admire him for his sharp mind. The book though was bad. Till the middle was totally mundane and very melodramatic. Then my interest was peeked but I was disappointed by the way the story was concluded. I am glad Larsan is finally dead because I don't want to read another book involving him and his amazing transformations.
Lo consiglio agli amanti del giallo classico. It was also confusing because the long booting description of the action. There were parts that got my attention and keep me reading.
