The Classics Spin #16

Twitter hashtag: #ccspin

For Classics Spin #14, I got #1: A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. Le Guin
For Classics Spin, #15, I got #12: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
For Classics Spin, #16, I got #4: Arsène Lupin, by Maurice Leblanc.

I’m really thrilled, because:

  • it’s a French classic
  • it’s a mystery, and I’m in a mystery mood
  • perfect timing, as I recently finished reading ALL of Sherlock Holmes, plus The Sherlock Holmes Book (DK Publishing), which does open to major other mystery classics – such as Arsène Lupin. It will be interesting to compare characters and plot.

So I have until end of December to read and review it.
It’s never too late to challenge yourself to (re)discover the classics and connect and have fun with other Classics lovers. See what this is all about.

HAVE YOU READ THESE TITLES?

  1. I also got a book I was pleased by, The Well of Loneliness. I have to admit I’ve never heard of your book, it’ll be good to see the review.

    • wonderful! Well, guess what, I had not heard about yours either, but I usually don’t read LGBT. Mine is well known to all French people, the hero is a legend equivalent to Sherlock Holmes for England

  2. Oh, that sounds like a great choice! I’ve heard of Arsene Lupin in various books about early crime ficton but have never read any of the stories. Is this one a collection of short stories or a novel? Hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to hearing what you think of it.

    • well, randomly out of 20 books I chose, and these 20 are part of the 50 classics I set myself to read in 5 years – so anyway, eventually I would read the book. That’s how Classics Club and Classics Spin work
