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. "

    " It's been some time since I've read these stories but it was a book that I read over and over when I was younger. These stories freaked the heck out of me but really made you think. "

    " Read when I was in the dark period of my teenage years after I had to write a paper on The Pit-cool short reads at Halloween. "

    " The biggest thing I remember is the mood. Poe can sure make you sweat. "

    " some call Edgar Allan Poe the king of horror. I did thoroughly enjoy this book of short stories however i cannot say i was scared per say.

    Good Read but don't get your hopes up if you think its going to be a real scary read "
