    One thought on “On Night's Shore”

    1. Penso sia più facile apprezzare questo libro se non lo si pensa come un giallo, ma come un romanzo storico con un personaggio principale di eccezione: Edgar Allan Poe, giornalista investigativo. La trama, infatti, si dipana molto lentamente; la soluzione del mistero presenta tanti, troppi colpi di scena, alcuni poco credibili; Poe ed il suo giovane amico (Augie) prendono un bel po’ di cantonate prima di capire la verità. Tuttavia il libro mi è piaciuto, anche se per altri motivi.Lo stile el [...]

    2. Beautifully written, with a delicious sense of place, On Night's Shore is a fictional account of Edgar Allan Poe's investigation of the murder of Mary Rogers. This real-life murder was the inspiration for Poe's second mystery featuring C. Auguste Dupin, "The Mystery of Marie Rogêt," and I'd recommend reading both that story and a book about its inspiration and conception, The Beautiful Cigar Girl: Mary Rogers, Edgar Allan Poe, and the Invention of Murder , first in order to get the most out of [...]

    3. Anche se il giallo che fa da perno alla trama del romanzo non mi ha coinvolto un granché, mi è comunque piaciuta la descrizione della New York di quasi due secoli fa - un enorme paesone pseudo-rurale che in pratica aveva gli stessi problemi sociali della metropoli in cui si è trasformata oggi - e mi ha affascinato il tentativo di riportare alla luce la complessa personalità di E. A. Poe uomo e scrittore.Mi incuriosiscono molto i romanzi che prendono spunto da opere di altri e in cui viene te [...]

    4. This was a very well-written mystery, set in the 1840's with Edgar Allan Poe as a main character. I liked it enough that I ordered the next in the series right away. Not for anyone that has trouble figuring out what an unusual word means by the context. I have never seen so many words in one book that I had never seen before! LOL

    5. I loved that the author used E.A. Poe has the hero of this story. It certainly inspired me to re-read my Poe! The who-done-it was great, but I kept wishing that there weren't quite so many well-placed references that would supposedly be the impetus for the further writings of Poe.This is a series and I didn't rush out to get the 2nd; however, it could be a future pick just to see how the author's story-telling grows.

    6. The premise of this book was very interesting. I loved reading about young Poe, a newpaper reporter here, trying to solve a murder with a street urchin he meets in 1800's New York. This is fictional, but through the book, the author gives hints of stories Poe would write in reality.I would suggest this book to any Poe fan.

    7. Edgar Allan Poe as a fictional character? OK! I enjoyed the setting of New York City in the 1800's. I loved his street urchin protégée. The two work together to solve a murder. The story was interesting and beautifully written. If you pay attention, you will find "inspirations" for Poe's literary works. I just learned there is a second book in the series. Yes, please.

    8. This historical fiction mystery recreates Edgar Allan Poe as an investigative journalist who is attempting to solve the mystery of Mary Rogers’s murder. Historically, Rogers’s case inspired Poe’s detective tale “The Mystery of Marie Roget,” which is a sequel to “The Murders in the Rue Morgue.” Joining Poe on this adventure is ten-year-old Auggie Dubbins, who narrates the story as an adult reflecting upon this past adventure.The story began rather slowly for me with an isolated inci [...]

    9. As the first book in "The Poe Series," "On Night's Shore" is a fun bit of historical fiction that taught me much that I didn't previously know about Edgar Allen Poe. The series had been recommended to me a couple of years ago, but I hadn't gotten around to it yet. I thought it might be related to the recent John Cusack film, "The Raven," so I figured it was about time to check it out. Now that I have read it, however, I don't actually think there is a connection between the film and the books ot [...]

    10. I very much enjoyed this one, and I've had it on my shelves for ages. It's a murder mystery set in 1849 New York. Augie is a " gutter rat" and all but an orphan when he finds a body in the Hudson, and on that same day meets one Mr E A Poe, a reporter working for the Daily Mirror. The writer takes young Augie under his wing and together they attempt to solve the mystery of the murder. I'm not generally a murder mystery fan, but the historical fiction and literary context I enjoyed very much, as w [...]

    11. A historical fiction mystery involving a then-ten year-old narrator who uses vocabulary well outside the range of ten year-olds and well-suited for people who like mysteries or people who might be a little prudish about sex (which is briefly alluded to) but who are okay with some extreme and graphic violence (a category of folk that always baffles me). This incorporates interesting little details and not-so-little figures from 1840's era United States, the story is engaging enough, and reference [...]

    12. I enjoyed the book - it was interesting to see the author's perspective on Poe's early days. In the beginning of the book there was a pretty high vocabulary level. I enjoy a good SAT word now and then, but made the story a bit cumbersome for me. As the story progressed, I noticed it less and less.

    13. A bit over-written and he uses the same "big" words over and over but I didn't figure out who done it, which is key. I don't usually try very hard to figure mysteries out, since I prefer to watch them unfold.

    14. This was an interesting mystery written from the perspective of Edgar Allan Poe as a journalist in 1840 undercovering the death of a shop girl. It was very well written, but I found it slow moving until about halfway through. Poe admirers would certainly appreciate it.

    15. Fun read, and the description of New York in Poe's time is pretty accurate. To get more out of the story, it would help to be familiar with the murder of Mary Rogers.
