    " Edgar Allan Poe as most of you should know was a poet who was not really know during his time. By the way this isn't the exact copy of the book of selected works but I could not find the one that I had read. Anyway the book contains some of his famous works like such as Annabel Lee and and the cask of amontillado. They are good but you should already know a lot of his work is quite depressing to read. So if depressing works of death and despair are not your thing, then the work of Edgar Allan Poe isn't really for you. "

    " 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. "

    " So many books I've read lately referred to Poe that I felt I ought to re-read some of the short stories. In the end, I've opted for three stars, as the good ones are really good, and for the most part balance out the stories which grabbed me less. "

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 1/17/2014

    " One can never read enough Poe. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/8/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J. Alfred | 12/16/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caiti | 11/7/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 9/8/2013

    " As far as I will go when it comes to reading horror. I love Poe. He lived such a sad yet fascinating life, it's interesting to me to read his works and see a product of such a life he lived. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 9/1/2013

    " Great book for casual Poe fans. Includes some of his most famous and best works. "

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Zauner | 4/13/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurinda | 11/20/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosalía | 11/18/2011

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 8/5/2011

    " I think this book is really good! I recomend everyone to read this if the are interested into the life of Edgar Allen Poe. He is a really creppy person but his stories have a way of pulling me in and keep me reading. "

    " This is one of my favorite "go-to" books... I LOVE IT!!! I just pick a story... I have yet to read all the stories... It may take me a bit - small doses of dreariness, I suppose. :) "

    " Had read this is high school and hated it. Then had to tutor an 8th grader on the very same book and loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 3/13/2011

    " I loved Poe's shorter stories, however, his longer ones were a very taxing read - So much unnecessary waffle. "

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.
