The First Unofficial Detective 19 April 2003
By Khalifa Alhazaa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
In these 3 short story, Poe introduces to the world for the first time the way of logical deduction, and applies it to an actual ambiguous case.
He seems to place much importance in mathematics as being the best exercise for analytic reasoning. Similar thing is seen in Doyle's Holmes, for Doyle asserts that Moriarty, the arch enemy of Sherlock Holmes, is in fact a mathematician.
Well aside from that he places much importance on meditation, a habit that is very unfamiliar in most of the world.
In the course of the first story, "The Murders of Rue Morgue," the French detective, Dupin, surprises his companion by interfering in his thoughts, an act that was criticized by Holmes in the novel "A Study in Scarlet," and that was practiced by him in some other short story of his.
The mystery, on the other hand, was a new one, not a simple one, and the deductions of Dupin were very logical and intriguing.
In the second story, "The Mystery of Marie Roget," Poe reconstructs a real crime by merely building up from the newspaper clips he collected over the span of time. He finally solves the mystery in the person of his detective Dupin. Close analysis had showed that the answer provided by Poe was actually the right one.
In the third story, "The Purloined Letter," Dupin solves a very easy mystery that puzzled the police force of paris.
This book is not at the same level of Doyle's writing, it is a little simpler, but is a nice read, though. That might be true because Doyle had based his detective, Holmes, on Dupin, and had actually attained the fame that forced him to dedicate some of his time for his mysteries.

A bit disappointing 1 July 2014
By Carl Alves - Published on Amazon.com
I’ve enjoyed other Edgar Allan Poe stories and poems, and I had high hopes for this collection of stories featuring Poe’s character Auguste Dupin, an investigator that does the police’s work for them. Perhaps I’m missing something here but I just found the narrative to be long-winded and not particularly compelling. In the stories, Dupin goes on and on about uninteresting topics that makes me lose interest rather quickly. The stories are almost entirely narrative with no real action. I found the stories hard to get into. Unlike Sherlock Holmes, whose stories have a logical progression, this lacked any such progression. Unlike other Poe stories, where the prose comes alive, the prose in these stories fall flat. The only one of the three stories that I found reasonably enjoyable was “The Murders of the Rue Morgue”. Otherwise this collection was not worth reading.
