    more from this reviewer

    The stories are wonderful, the OCR'ed formatting, not so much.

    The stories are wonderful, the OCR'ed formatting, not so much. It's readable, but just barely so. There are lots of odd characters populating the pages, so you kind of have to get used to ignoring stuff and translating some other stuff. But, the stories themselves are top notch classics. Rating reduced due to eBook formatting, not content of the writing.

    Some unreadable passages

    Buy the full version it is definatly worth it to read and understand the wonderful works of Poe. This particular volume is somewhat readable but includes instances of complete gibberish

    Terrible; don't waste your money

    Cannot read this thing due to all of the typing errors and crazy symbols. Looks like it was typed by a three year old. Impossible to read and make any sense out of it
