    " Very Gothic. Very Poe. Lots of violence, claustrophobic horror, creepiness. Not enough whales. "

    " This might be the worst novel by a legendary author ever published. Seriously, it's terrible. There is no continuity throughout the novel. Characters appear and disappear at will. It switches between first person narrative and diary style travelogue a couple times, with no explanation. However, the concept of whiteness and blackness, as well as the racist overtones throughout this novel are fascinating and don't really come out in any of Poe's short stories. Totally worth the read, even if it's only to understand the commentary in "Pym." "

    " Unsettling, disturbing and compulsive are the words I find to describe this book. I turn into a compulsive reader when I read it, I find it truly unsettling and quite disturbing. The story isn't that great but the friendship between the two main characters is the motor of the story, is the reason of all the disasters. And that's why I love it so much. "
