Edgar Allan Poe – The Murders In The Rue Morgue

Review From User :

I thought this short story was really impressive. I remember watching a black and white version of the film when I was really young and being really scared by it. Who would have known that I would read the book behind it one day. It's a story about a murder that takes place in Paris which is almost unsolvable because they cant work out why the perpetrator would leave without any money, the killings are almost inhumanely gruesome and the police cant work out how the individual got in and then got away in the first place. There is an interesting section in the beginning about how analysis takes place and then need to view the whole as supposed to viewing things individually which we tend to do well in the west. This ties in with the way the detective is able to take the many disparately strange elements of the murder and put something coherent together. The murderer in the end is not human
