Overview

The House of Usher, itself doubly referring both to the actual structure and the family, plays a significant role in the story. It is the first "character" that the narrator introduces to the reader, presented with a humanized description: its windows are described as "eye-like" twice in the first paragraph. The fissure that develops in its side is symbolic of the decay of the Usher family and the house "dies" along with the two Usher siblings. This connection was emphasized in Roderick's poem "The Haunted Palace" which seems to be a direct reference to the house that foreshadows doom. ---WIKIPEDIA---

This book was very amusing. A high quality of confusing vocabulary. Keeps you on the edge of your seat especially the ending! Overall this was a very scary story that will interest all fans of horror.

A giant hall stretches, reaching a lit up room with a glowing floor and the statue of a dragon at the center. The dragon is a golden waterfountain, a pool of the most beautiful fish surround it. A shining, crystal chandelier hangs, candles that never burn out placed on it. The chandelier gives the water and gold a beautiful look. A table of ice that never melts circles the fountain. Glowing white plates lay on the table, gem designs etched into the surface. Silverware made out of real silver is placed by each lovely plate.

Edgar is very strange because he had a bad life. He loved his mother more than anything. She died, and Edgar was very dipressed. He put all his feelings in the stories he wrote. Then he got engaged, the wife died too. Edgar was so depressed. That is all I am going to say.
