    • Een grote teleurstelling het idee was veelbelovend: een beroemde rover, Louis Dominique Cartouche, reïncarneert 200 jaar later in Théophraste Maar het verhaal loopt uit op een totaal fiasco, waarin niets nog geloofwaardig overkomt en alles verward en grotesk is.Leroux was duidelijk zijn pedalen kwijt toen hij dit ei legde.


    • The basic premise (middle-aged rubber stamp manufacture becomes possessed by Robber King past life) is hysterical. In practice, though, it is often incoherently violent and I had to take a whole star off for a strange subterranean utopian exploit that was so strangely out of line of the characters. I had such high hopes, because I love Leroux generally speaking.
