    Nook Book

    too intense. It's better to soak it in a little at a time, so that you can get a better feel for the different kinds of writing that Poe did, and how he excelled at pretty much everything he put down on paper. Most great writers can't boast of that much.

    Poe's writing is what makes even his least story or poem come alive -- he brought a gothic, misty vibrancy to his stories, and could make his quiet dialogue seem utterly chilling (" "I have no name in the regions which I inhabit. I was mortal, but am fiend..."). It's not hard to see why he was an influence on authors such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and Franz Kafka.

    A complete collection of Edgar Allen Poe

    Okay, so Poe was a creepy man that lived a very strange life... But he was brillant at what he was able to do for his time... Much like his England counterpart Dickens Poe understood the power of the "Serial Novel" making people wait in anticipation for what would come next... Often know as the father of the classic "who done it" mystery Poe never ceases to amaze me... For Halloween I wanted to dive into this classic work and imerge myself in the works of where mystery begin... If your only knowledge of Poe is the Raven your missing out... I put this up against Agatha Christie's "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" as a part of my classics that I will one day read again...

    I Also Recommend:

    The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe - INCOMPLETE!

    What's in this volume is fine, but it is only ONE VOLUME of a TEN VOLUME SET. You cannot tell from the description of the selection which volume you are getting. When I saw "COMPLETE" Works of Edgar Allen Poe, I assumed it would be the COMPLETE works. There is nothing in the Overview to tell you that it is only one volume in the set you'll be downloading or which of the 10 volumes you might be obtaining. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

    Can not determine which volumes to download

    I would have given this 5 stars except I can't tell which volumes I'm downloading out of this 10 volume series. After 15 downloads I have all but the first, which I'm giving up on for now. BnN or google need to add the volume number to the title. Not sure which volume this is.

    Not the first volume

    This is not the first volume of the collected works. It is hard to determine where the other volumes are in the collection due to Google Books lack of labeling.
