The Blonde Lady

Maurice Leblanc

Book Overview: 

In “The Blonde Lady, being a record of the duel of wits between Arsène Lupin and the English detective” – original title “Arsène Lupin contre Herlock Sholmes” – the gentleman-burglar once more meets his enemy, the English detective Herlock Sholmes. If in the last story of “Arsène Lupin, gentleman-burglar” Sherlock Holmes arrives too late (the name was at a later date changed to Herlock Sholmes in reply to complaints and threats by Conan Doyle regarding copyrights), in the two stories that compose “The Blonde Lady” these two great intellects are bound in opposite directions. Where one chooses to abide to the law, the other uses his power and wits to crime – and who is going to win?

They pictured yawning cavities, tunnels communicating with the sewers, with the catacombs....

The blue diamond was sold at the Hôtel Drouot on the thirtieth of January. The auction-room was crammed and the bidding proceeded madly.

All Paris, the Paris of the first nights and great public functions, was there, all those who buy and all those who like others to think that they are in a position to buy: stockbrokers, artists, ladies in every class of society, two members of the Government, an Italian tenor, a king in exile who, in order to reëstablish his credit, with great self-possession and in a resounding voice, permitted himself the luxury of running up the price to a hundred thousand francs.

It was an audiobook. Interesting.

I enjoyed reading this book as much as I enjoyed reading the other Arsene Lupin book. The thing that this one has that the other didn't is that this is more of a cohesive unit: while each chapter still feels like its own short story (for the most part), put together, they make an overarching stor...more

J'ai encore passé un excellent moment en compagnie d'Arsène Lupin ! J'ai retrouvé avec plaisir ce personnage charismatique dg j'ai adoré suivre les évènements qui l'oppose à Herlock Sholmès.

Enjoyable fun but not great. Review to follow after Hols

Arsene Lupin! Such a wonderful creation by Maurice Leblanc!

Arsene Lupin is a stylish and dashing French character with all daring, charm and panache. He is called literature’s greatest gentleman thief and detective. I was never aware of this gentleman thief, but after reading this first book, I...more

Buku kedua Lupin yg saya baca ini tidakkkk menyenangkan untuk dibaca. Not enjoyable. Terjemahannya lebih baik drpd yg Lupin vs Mafia. Tapi cara berceritanya susah saya nikmati/ikuti. Jujur saja saya bacanya bosan dan merasa seperti mengerjaka...more

Me encanto esta batalla entre dos grandes genios que están en lados opuestos de la ley. Se Lee en un día, prueba de ello que así lo hice y que el libro es adictivo.

I received a copy of this via NetGalley, for an honest review.

My expectations for this book were incredibly high. I loved the first book, especially the last bit where Herlock and Lupin met, and I was really looking forward to this one.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t blown away by it as I thought I would...more
