    " "Pym whose failures entice instead of repel. Pym that flows and ignites and Pym that becomes so entrenched it stagnates for hundreds of words at a time. A book that at times makes no sense, gets wrong both history and science..." - mat johnson "

    " I love Edgar Allan Poe that's why I'm giving his only novel 4 stars. If it was anyone else it would only be 3 but I'm prejudiced! "

    " I love Poe. But his only novel is not up to his standards. It was ridiculous, boring, and seemed pointless. "

    " This story was pretty amazing. I'm pretty positive that the writers of Lost were reading this when they created that show. For me, I found there to be a connection between Pym and Dr. Faustus with his overwhelming desire to sail and have an adventure. More to come later. "

    " It tells some cool adventures thought up by Poe around 1838 "

    " La seule histoire du monde Qui commence mal, continue mal et fini très mal.
    c'est un régal pour qui aime les bonnes histoires de bateaux, de naufrages et d'aventures. "
