    What a terrifying, bone chilling and spine tingling journey into the darkest pit of horror with the master of this genre Edgar Allan Poe I ve known him and his stories ever since I read their retold versions in Oxford Bookworms Library, and I was so thrilled to read the original versions ofThe Fall of the House of Usher ,The Pit and the Pendulum ,The Cask of Amontillado ,The Masque of the Red Death ,The Murders in the Rue Morguein this collection of Poe s selected stories I was a What a terrifying, bone chilling and spine tingling journey into the darkest pit of horror with the master of this genre Edgar Allan Poe I ve known him and his stories ever since I read their retold versions in Oxford Bookworms Library, and I was so thrilled to read the original versions ofThe Fall of the House of Usher ,The Pit and the Pendulum ,The Cask of Amontillado ,The Masque of the Red Death ,The Murders in the Rue Morguein this collection of Poe s selected stories I was also introduced to some of his stories that I hadn t known before, such asThe Tell Tale Heart ,Hop FrogandPremature BurialWhat a masterful storyteller Poe was Some of the stories make use of supernatural elements to create the horrific setting, but most of them relyon the mental degradation and the darkness in the characters minds to play with our fear and suspicion Poe s characters struggled with sins, guilt, revenge, being buried alive, hypochondria and phantasm, which just proves that the human mind may be the place where Hell truly reigns.What I love most about Poe is the way the used adjectives and similes to bring about detailed descriptions of the surroundings that strike readers with realism, the way he constructed his short but heavy sentences to create a scary atmosphere that makes our hair stand on end We are scared of something we can t explain, but we also can t help but continue reading till we find out what it was My top 3 favorite and most impressive stories in this collection areThe Tell Tale Heartwhat a masterpiece this is ,The Cask of AmontilladoandThe Fall of the House of UsherI highly recommend this book for Halloween season

    A fantastic array of short stories, that were compelling, innovative and wonderfully dark and Gothic I would expect no less from the Master of Gothic fiction that is Edgar Allen Poe So many classics like The tell tale heart , The black cat gruesome but so brilliant and The pit and the pendulum But also stories that I hadn t heard of like Hop frog , Murders in the Rue Morgue , The premature burial and The facts in the case of M Valdemar These were just as fantastic as the storie A fantastic array of short stories, that were compelling, innovative and wonderfully dark and Gothic I would expect no less from the Master of Gothic fiction that is Edgar Allen Poe So many classics like The tell tale heart , The black cat gruesome but so brilliant and The pit and the pendulum But also stories that I hadn t heard of like Hop frog , Murders in the Rue Morgue , The premature burial and The facts in the case of M Valdemar These were just as fantastic as the stories that I had heard of before Also, like with so many great works of fiction, at the core of each story was a strong underlying message that makes you really think about life and death, even in this modern society

    As I said on instagram after reading this book, I only wanted to read Poe after watching Poe Party on Youtube, but also because of Thug Notes and Overly Sarcastic Productions summarized some of his stories I absolutely love these stories that are in this collection I actually graded them and even though some of the grades may look a bit low, I must say that is no reflection on how much I enjoyed them altogether I will definitely will be going back to these The fall of the House of Ushe As I said on instagram after reading this book, I only wanted to read Poe after watching Poe Party on Youtube, but also because of Thug Notes and Overly Sarcastic Productions summarized some of his stories I absolutely love these stories that are in this collection I actually graded them and even though some of the grades may look a bit low, I must say that is no reflection on how much I enjoyed them altogether I will definitely will be going back to these The fall of the House of Usher 8 10This one is so creepy, but in the best way It has so much atmosphere The dichotomy of twins is an interesting thing to explore.The Murders in the Rue Morgue 9 10Great detective story I heard this is the precursor to Sherlock Holmes and I can see the influences The twist at the end is an eye opener.The Pit and the Pendulum 6 10I didn t really get this one It was good, but i just didn t get it.The Masque of the Red Death 8 10Aha Comeuppance at it s finest You think you can run You cant run Also, don t think you re invincible or untouchable Death strikes the rich and the poor.The Black Cat 9 10I LOVE this one Cats on a whole are weird, and this story captures that, as well as the fact that crazy people will find any means to justify their behaviour.The Tell Tale Heart 9 10More mad people justifying their crazy behaviour Poe has a crutch, which is burying people in unorthodox places, which is in many of his stories, but are still interesting and entertaining each time somehow How did he do that The Premature Burial 8 10I think I first read this one in Literature class when I was in high school, but totally forgot until I read it this time There is a good moral in it, to face your fears and realize that the fear of death will keep you from living.The Facts in the Case of M Valdermar 7 10CREEPY So creepy This one along with Fall of Usher are the closest I came while reading this book to being actually scared The Cask of Amontillado 9 10This one didn t get full marks mainly because i already knew the story, so i saw the end coming But it is easily one of my favourites The protagonist brings revenge to a whole new level Hop Frog 9 10Basically what everyone expects Tyrion Lannister to become at the end of the books This one also has a revenge plot, but SO satisfying Total 8.2 10Overall, I think many of these will become my favourite stories going forward
