    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.

    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!

    Stories of Scare

    I think the book was okay it wasn't really spectuallar but I think the book is prescribed for people who like scary or scare things. Also the book was dumb because I don't like or understand scary stories

    The Cask of Amontillado

    This book is great, the way Poe turns the whole story around is fantastic. The ending is superb. Some things in this story are unexpected.
