    OMG!~

    HIS VOCABULARY RANGE IS HUGE!!!!
    But the story is good overall.
    I would recommend this to talented readers with good vocabulary, otherwise you would literally need a dictionary to help you!
    I am a fairly advanced reader, but I needed a dictionary to aid me due to his strong vocabulary.
    Like I said, this book is thrilling as well as challenging.

    Student View off the Cask of Amontillado.

    I'm sorry, but it seems that some of your reviews are incorrect, and I felt that I should aid the story. Getting to the point, here is my review of the story:<BR/><BR/>Montroser, being the torturer of Fortunato, who is the drunken man celebrating a holiday around March, closely relating to Mardis Gras. Montroser tricks the drunken man into going into his vaults to taste some of the "amontillado"- a fine wine, which he bought from Fortunato's rivaling connoisseur of wines, Luchesi. Whilst down there, Montroser keeps reminding Fortunato of the niter, and warns him that they shouldn't be down in the vaults. Passing through a catacomb, they appeared at a section of the vaults, and they shared a glass of an extremely strong wine. Making Fortunato yet even more intoxicated, Montroser and Fortunato went on. They reached the end and Fortunato tells him to go look around, that he will get the amontillado, which never existed in the first place. He then binds Fortunato into chains on the wall of the vaults, and walks away, beginning to brick up the small passage where Fortunato is chained to the wall. Hearing the man's screams for a long while, and then it suddenly going quiet had startled Montroser, yet he kept going. Montroser was three-quarters of the way done when Fortunato became quiet, and no sounds could be heard. Figuring the man had passed, he found himself coming close to being done, and then Fortunato laughs hysterically, and Montroser puts the last brick in, leaving Fortunato to die. While he walking away, Montroser felt a pang of remorse for leaving Fortunato to die, and carried on walking.<BR/><BR/>You later find the narrator's name (Montroser), and that it is he who did this, and has finally revealed it after five decades of it being unknown and hidden.

    An amazing short story

    This story is one of my favorite books. Im in the ninth grade and fourteen but a very advanced reader abd i got this story pretty quickly. After my english class read the story, me and a couple if my best friends decided to create a short film based on the story. We are still currently in the scripting phase but its gonna rock :)

    Twisted yet thrilling

    The Cast of A... was outstanding book and i highly recomend it. The psycology used by the one charachter is outstanding. What makes this novel quite scary is that it could actually Happen....
