One thought on “The Red Lamp

  1. Jonathan

    Ummmmdid you ever sit across from someone who never gets to the point, and has to tell you every little tiny detail of every little thing And after a while you just don t care, you just want escape That was the pace of this book Irritatingly slow in the revelation of the culprit At the beginning of the last chapter, when she has led you on so many wild goose chases that you don t care about, and then left most of the book unresolved, she writes this synopsis , instead of writing it into the plot [...]

    This book got on my reading list by a convoluted route my sister read a review of a book about a guy who reviewed mystery novels back in the first half of the 20th century the golden age of mysteries, some would say , and the review included a list of his favorites So my sister decided to read some of his favorites, and she gave this one to me after she read it Now that I have read it, I see why it would have made the list I was almost immediately caught up in the tension, and hated to put the b [...]

    The Red Lamp was published in 1925 I read it in about 1969 I got to me Ghosts, seances, and murder most foul It is as good as an Agatha Christie In some ways it is silly and old fashioned, but it retains the ability to entertain No I did not feel the shiver of ghostly presence this time around, but I enjoyed the nostalgic thrill of adventure.

    If you read the back of the book, you would suspect that The Red Lamp by Mary Roberts Rinehart is a bit gothic in nature Perhaps a young woman in danger or Had I But Known book See for yourself Jane wanted to leave Twin Towers the moment she arrived She had a strange feeling about the old mansion, a chilling apprehension of doom that followed her through the creaking halls like a death shadow The others thought her fears were groundless until they felt the evil iridescence of the Red Lamp, and r [...]

    HY PER BO LE hahy pur buh lee noun Rhetoric.1.obvious and intentional exaggeration.2 extravagant statement or figure of speech not intendedto be taken literally, as to wait an eternity That is the definition of hyperbole as provided by Dictionary I think there needs to be a whole section added that discusses the over the top nature of book synopsises It may not even be a bad idea to have a special section set aside for mystery novels I don t think there is a genre that lends itself to it Now I [...]

    Narrative of an English Professor s daily journal of strange goings on, supernatural happenings murders during his summer vacation at the seaside Written in the early 1900 s, so the language is very old fashioned, Mary Roberts Rinehart uses words I ve never heard of Not many conversations between characters Like Prof Porter might be talking to his niece s boyfriend, between conversations, many ruminations so sometimes I lost the thread of their talk Also the description of the story on the back [...]

  7. Jennifer

    This was such a fun read for me Written almost 100 years ago, it is a mystery set in an old home by a bay with a professor, ghosts, and murder It is written in journal entries and because of that the mystery unfolds slower than a modern day mystery, with the story slowly unfolding day by day At times the pace was maddening, but probably no than any other mystery where you just want to know how it is going to end It was well written and I can t wait to pick up one of her other mysteries

  8. Lynn

    This was a very mediocre mystery ghost story It is written in the form of the diary of a man, who moves with his wife and their niece to house he has just inherited The uncle who left him the house died under suspicious circumstances There are confusing suggestions that a phony psychic who formerly lived there was involved in foul play, or that the house may really be haunted, or both It s not a creepy, mysterious or clever story, but the situations and dialog were sometimes funny, so I got thro [...]

  9. Nancy Boyd

    A great mystery I especially appreciated the narrator being an English literature professor the inside jokes and nods to the profession, as well as a terrific grasp on the psyche of those in the profession, made it even fun to read.

    I couldn t finish this one Not sure why It seemed a little disjointed and I just couldn t get into the story.
