    If you haven't tried Poe......What the F*** are you reading.

    Any book that contains writing by Edgar Allan Poe is a book worth reading. He is one of the greatest writers of all time. If you have the reading level of a third grader, or your just plain simpleminded. You won't like this book, for your small brain will be unable to comprehend the greatness. Therefore if you write a review bashing a book, and not even going to use a slight bit of grammar; at least check your terrible spelling. Then your opinion might actually have a slight bit of validity, but probably not. Don't worry this world needs someone to flip the burgers.

    Creepy, but a must read

    Edgar Allen Poe creates so much suspense and terror in the reader throughout this story. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to be scared. Poe has done a wonderful job on this book.

    Cask of Amontillado

    This story is very weird but fascinating and creepy. The way Poe uses the characters is wonderful and the way he uses Montresor could not be better. The character gets revenge with murder and the way he goes about it is amazing and the story could not have been better.

    Switched Netween Worlds: Part One

    ~~~~~AMELIA~~~~~

    I wonder if i could've avoided everything i went through. All the stress and the near-death situations. Everything. Then again, maybe not...
    So, my name is Amelia Jewel. I have light brown hair and hazel eyes. My hair is in a ponytail under my favorite baseball cap with my enitials. A.J. I'm also twelve years old by the way.
    It was a hot and sunny day in the middle of summer. I was on my Nintendo D.S, about to win the game when my svreen went black. "No!!" I screamed like any gamer. My battery had to die right then. It just HAD to. I groaned and grabbed my phone. "I'm going outside." I called before closing the door behind me. I looked aroung to see if my friends were already out. And they were. But at the gery end of the street.
    Before you meet them, might be best to tell you about them.
    First there's Makala. She is ten years old with orangish red hair. Today, it was in two pigtails. Makala is sweet and kind. She is also a huge pet lover. She has a small black puppy named Bella who is now running aroung the big oak tree and barking like there's no tomorrow.
    Next there is Hunter. He is eleven with curly brown hair and brown eyes. Hunter can sometimes be so dull. Though he's very smart at times. He has three large dogs and four older brothers. (Must be hard living in a house without girls.)
    Last, there is Savanna. She is twelve years old and like my twin sister. She has wavy chocolate hair that was in a braid today the dropped over her left shoulder. Savanna is very funny and sweet. She has a crush on Hunter and he has a secret crush on her. (Don't tell him i said that, though!)
    So those are my friends. Ta-da and all that.
    I walked over to them as Hunter picked up one of those pointers teachers use and said, "Dibs on this!"
    Savanna, Makala, and I laughed. "Hey Amelia." Hunter smiled, putting the pointer in his belt like a sword. "Just the person we needed."
    "I got you the bow and Wind powers." Said Savanna.
    Makala shouldeted Savanna. "She doesn't know what we're doing." She handed me her black bow and started to explain.
    "We're playing a game where we each have a different power. I have water, Hunter has fire, Savanna has earth, and you have wind. We also have a special weapon. I have a wand that shoots out ice, snow, or water. Hunter has a wand that shoots out lava and fire. Savanna has you eletric spear and she has to wear special gloves in order to use it. You have a bow that shoots eletric arrows and can get back up powers from it."
    I nodded, barely understanding. "What do we do in this game?" I asked.
    "Easy." Hunter said. "We go to the Underworld and stop whoever is summoning all the zombies."
    I nodded agaon and shouldered my bow new bow. "Lets play."
    Then at that moment, lightning sparked out of nowhere and hit the oak tree, sending us all flying back. I heard Bella yelp in surprise just before my body hit the groung again and my vision went black.
    "The heros are coming!" Came a loud cheer in my head. "Behold the knight, Amelia. Weilder of the Wind! Holder of the Lightning bow!"
    My vision was still black and i suddenly saw pictures flash by my face in seconds. I saw glimses of myself in a dress! That would never happen!
    Then i saw Hunter falling into a pool of lava, and Makala cackling and laughing as Hunter tried to get away from the burning liquid. What was that! We're all friends here! Right?
    Then i saw Savanna's face on a small stone that said R.I.P SAVANNA. Was all this really going to happen?

    Name: Amelia.

    Danger part one

    My name is Carrie White. I am a young teen with the power of telekinesis. This power of mine brought pain to me. This is my story... When I was young amd about 6 years old people teased me because they thoight I was weird. It wasnt true. I just didnt act lik regular people. When people teased me always went to my dad. He could always make me feel better. Then my dad died at the age of 108 years old. Of course no one went to his funeral it was just us. Kids at my school than twisted my story around. They said he killed himself because he coulnt stand living with me... a weird child. Those remarks hurt. I became so angry everything fell apart. Glass from windows exploded in small slices and fragments cuting people and hurting them. Luckily people forgot but still teased me. When I turned 13 I started researching everythin on telekinesis. This kept me busy which made mother glad. After dad died we all suffered immensely. Motjer brooded in her room. No amount of coaxing got jer out till I sent her out of her room by using my powers. After that came Mother wa so strict.

    VicMars Part One Story Entree

    The entire day was horrible. First, I got a Swirlee in the toilet by Bullies at school. Then I got in trouble for passing notes to my one and only friend, Andy Cave. And then I got into a fight and somehow won by throwing things without a miss and getting into trouble. Finally, I got expelled. This was the 6th time this year. I didnt want to upset my mom since her life got ruined after my dad died before I was born. I trudged home and told my mom everything that happened today. She got really stressed and grounded me. As I was sleeping, I heard a thump from my moms bedroom. I didnt pay any attention to this because I always hear thumps in her room. I shrugged it off and went to sleep. The next morning I wanted to make my mom happy, so I made her Breakfast in Bed. I knocked on her door but didnt hear anything. The door was unlocked so I went inside. But instead of seeing my mom in bed, I saw big words on the wall written in red crayon: COME TO THE UNDERWORLD VICTOR MARS. The End. :)

    Edgar Allan Poe has been my favorite writer since the age of 7.

    Edgar Allan Poe has been my favorite writer since the age of 7. Which is a bit odd considering his work was not exactly meant to be read by 7 year old. And even if I didn't fully understand it then, I definitely do now. I love all of his stories and poetry dearly but I do have favorites: The Black Cat (Owner stabs cat in the eye and hangs him. The a few days later house is on fire and there's a cat print), The Cask of Amontillado (Based off of true events. Montresor gets revenge on Fortunado by using his love of wine, gets him drunk to drag him down to the catacombs where he chains him and cements him up), and The Tell-Tale Heart. (Crazy guy trying to prove that he is not insane by being smart on trying to murder his neighbor in his sleep). His works are very Dark if your not into stories that have you thinking and living in the horrid tales then maybe this isn't for you. Besides that I definitely recommend you check these out!
