    " Jorge bought this for me my first birthday I had after meeting him. It's the most beautiful leather bound book ever. Poe was my first favorite author. I love his poetry and stories. I get butterflies remembering all of his tales. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nayeli | 2/7/2014

    " Spanish. This particular edition is beautiful, the cover and the paper. I read it very young and I particularly remember liking the order of the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 2/7/2014

    " As expected, this was a great collection of stories. My personal favorite has to be 'The Pit and the Pendulum', which is by far the scariest story of the bunch. Other ones I loved: 'The Man of the Crowd', 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' (despite the rather silly denouement), 'The Masque of the Red Death', 'The Tell-Tale Heart', 'The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether' and 'Hop-Frog'. The only story I genuinely didn't like because I had no idea what it was doing there, was 'The Domain of Arnheim'. As far as I can tell, it's about some garden or other. Don't know what's up with that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sean | 1/31/2014

    " Many of the stories in this collection tend towards the monotonous and dull. There are the odd one or two which are engaging but overall the writing comes across as laboured and grinding. A great little dust collector, this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JaNae | 1/24/2014

    " This author had an interesting/eerie mind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erika | 12/28/2013

    " Finally! I'm finally done with this book! Mr. Poe, you really can be quite insufferable at times. Way too descriptive writing to the point it felt he was just throwing filler fodder at us to increase the page numbers. Abrupt endings all around, tiring soliloquies... I was reading the Spanish version (not the best translation ever, to be honest), so perhaps the reading experience would have been much more enjoyable if I had the text's original version. Maybe I just don't get Poe, maybe it's the generational gap or something, I don't know. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/28/2013

    " I tried to read this and then gave up. I didn't find the stories compelling, and sometimes I found them downright confusing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derm | 12/27/2013

    " Probably the first "adult" book I ever read - think it's the only work of fiction my dad had in the house. It wasn't this cover, but I got this edition more recently. Definitely shaped my reading tastes "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diabardo | 12/26/2013

    " to this day scares me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 12/12/2013

    " This remains one of the most horrific collection of tales ever - and the creepy illustration on the front of a skeleton with glowing red eyes and a black hood definitely helps the ambiance. Great illustrations in the book as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roberto Perez | 12/10/2013

    " No soy bueno para reviews, pero altamente recomendado, les dara miedo de verdad "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 11/12/2013

    " I love the darkness of Poe's short stories and poems. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zachary | 10/21/2013

    " Poe was a true artist of words. His chilling tales will not only send your spine tingling, but also intrigue and astound you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 10/16/2013

    " A classic, worth a read if you like spooky stories!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 9/12/2013

    " One can never read enough Poe. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sam Snideman | 5/18/2013

    " Some good stuff in there; mostly a lot of second-rate stuff (in my opinion). I learned from reading this book that I don't much care for Poe. More power to those who do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Snufkin | 3/7/2013

    " This is all the best of Poe! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Zauner | 1/5/2013

    " They are very astmospheric, moody stories. A fun read if you don't linger in that place. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cats 274 | 12/12/2012

    " This is probably the most boring book I ever tried to read. After three attempts in the time period of ten years I finally give up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caiti | 7/19/2012

    " Poe is so macabre. And brilliant. The illustrations in this are very vibrant. They kind of feel like an assault on my eyes. Not my cup of tea, but they fit Poe's work really well, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. Alfred | 6/28/2012

    " Poe is a weirdo! Everyone knows that. But he also really loves a good puzzle. (He reminds me of M. Night Shyamalan in that way. Did Poe believe in reincarnation?) So if you want some good puzzles and a great deal of morbid weirdness, give it a shot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alessandro | 4/28/2012

    " It doesn't get any better than this, folks. Edgar Allan Poe is the unchallenged master of horror and what got me into reading books. His short stories always deliver and are imbued with a unique horror aura. The stuff of legends, ladies and gentlemens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Rmz Arias | 2/23/2012

    " Magnificos cuentos! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosalía | 2/23/2012

    " Poe was a HUGE influence in my writing short fiction. His tales are brilliant and psychologically chilling. "

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.
