The Gold-Bug is a classic American horror story by Edgar Allan Poe.

Let me call myself, for the present, William Wilson. The fair page now lying before me need not be sullied with my real appellation. This has been already too much an object for the scorn-for the horror-for the detestation of my race.

About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.

This is a novella about an estranged man living on an island off the coast of Charleston, Souh Carolina, who discovers a mysterious golden bug with the outline of a skull on its back. He subsequently finds a map with the bug on it, which leads him to buried pirate treasure. This was a trivial story that wasn't worth the time spent reading it.

I reviewed this title and found the download to be satisfactory. Perhaps the purchaser who experienced a problem did not wait until his download was complete before opening the book. Check with Barnes & Noble to ask if you can download another copy for free.
