La storia narra delle torture subite da un prigioniero dell'Inquisizione spagnola. Il protagonista è ritenuto responsabile di crimini e rinchiuso in una cella completamente al buio. Tentando di stabilire le dimensioni della stanza e a causa della profonda e opprimente oscurità, sviene. Una grande lama a forma di pendolo è sospesa sopra di lui: il suo movimento sempre più rapido e inesorabile è tale da fargli presagire che presto sarà prossima a squarciargli il petto. Il terrore di una fine atroce conduce il protagonista a una disperata lotta per la vita... Il pozzo e il pendolo è un'opera della collana LibriVivi Colossal. L'audiolibro diventa un vero e proprio film da ascoltare, con narrazioni, dialoghi, effetti sonori e musiche.

    " perfect quick little spooky gothic-tale for Halloween "

    " The ending spoiled it for me. It would have been much more narratively sound to have the poor unfortunate prisoner killed at the end, rather than being improbably rescued. (That's a 150 year old spoiler for you) "

    " I enjoy reading Edgar Allen Poe's short stories because they're eerie and mostly gives off a gloomy feeling/mood. His writing stle is rather interesting and keeps me guessing about what's to come next on the following page! "

    " Undoubtedly _not_ the version I read in grade school. But Poe's complete works were delicious and disturbing to the 10-yr-old mind. Glad I read them then. "

About the Author
Author Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1848) transformed the American literary landscape with his innovations in the short story genre and his haunting lyrical poetry, and he is credited with inventing American gothic horror and detective fiction. He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic. In 1845 the publication of his most famous poem, “The Raven,” brought him national fame.
