    The Hollow Man Epub Û The Hollow Epub / hollow epub, The Hollow book, The Hollow Man PDFLocked room mysteries are just really magic tricks This book cleverly and overtly acknowledges this fact The beauty of the book lies in misdirection it lies in presenting all the facts but conning the reader into following the wrong ones it lies in creating a design which produces gasps of amazement and then nods of satisfaction All mystery stories do that obviously but this is a howdunnit wrapped up with a wh

    The Hollow Man Epub Û The Hollow Epub / hollow epub, The Hollow book, The Hollow Man PDFWhewI feel like I’ve just been 15 rounds with Gary KasparovNow I should preface my remarks by saying this is the first John Dickson Carr novel that I have read – so I didn’t really know what to expectFinding that he was born in Uniontown PA in 1906 I kinda thought I was in for some slick 1930s gumshoe action – and I couldn’t have been wrongSet in a dark and snowy London seemingly bereft of traffic the scene is Dickensian – and the characters led by the unfathomable Dr Gideon

    The Hollow Man Epub Û The Hollow Epub / hollow epub, The Hollow book, The Hollow Man PDFClever locked room mystery Carr's style when writing Dr Fell is a bit didatic and may turn off some readers but I loved the somewhat lengthy exposition Fell gives about the various types of so called locked room mysteries As he says himself    When the cry of 'This sort of thing wouldn't happen' goes up when you complain about half faced fiends and hooded phantoms and blond hypnotic sirens you are merely saying 'I don't like this sort of story' That's fair enough If you do not like it you are howlingly right to say so But when you twist this matter of taste into

    The Hollow Man Epub Û The Hollow Epub / hollow epub, The Hollow book, The Hollow Man PDFYou know pretty much immediately that this is not going to be your average mystery story A group of friends who meet regularly to discuss odd diverse supernatural topics such as ghosts ghost stories are interrupted by a strange man by the name of Pierre Fley who addresses himself to one of the group a Dr Charles Grimaud The stranger discusses a story about three coffins and then tells Grimaud that either Fley or his brother would be calling upon him soon It is not long afterwards that Grimaud is found dead in his study on the top floor of the house with the one door locked the windows too high for an exit and absolutely no footprints in the snow outside the house But the kicker is that someone came to the door was let in addressed two of the people in the house and was seen climbing the stairs and entering the study Sohow did it happen? Dr Gideon Fell is called in

    The Hollow Man Epub Û The Hollow Epub / hollow epub, The Hollow book, The Hollow Man PDFHaven't read the author before and stumbled across this novel on The Guardian 1000 books to read list This was a relatively complicated locked room mystery There's not one but two murders to be solved by Superintendent Hadley and the very clever Dr Gideon Fell For this reader the highlight of the novel was Dr Fell's dissertation on murder Enjoyed the vintage atmosphere and the characters on offer but an overly wordy mystery

    The Hollow Man Epub Û The Hollow Epub / hollow epub, The Hollow book, The Hollow Man PDFIn the introduction it's written He John Dickson Carr liked to present the reader with all the clues needed to solve the mystery so I went into this with all intentions of unraveling this seemingly impossible murder mystery But MIss Marple Sherlock Holmes Hercule Poirot Nancy Drew Charlie Chan Columbo and Jim Rockford together wouldn't have figured this out Still it was fun to read and try to guess who did it Solid 3 stars
