This, the third of 5 volumes containing Poe's works, contains 6 of his short stories as well as Poe's only complete novel, The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym. In it, Arthur Gordon Pym stows away on a whaling vessel and experiences shipwreck, mutiny, and other adventures in typical Poe fashion. (Introduction by TriciaG)
BEWARE OF CHAPTERS 14 AND 15!!! Had to skip most of 14 and all of 15---was making me crazy! Great story and readers otherwise.
The story is great, but the reader for 14 has an inflection in every damn sentence and it makes listening impossible.
This is such a great story! The reader of chapter 14, however, is a trainwreck. I'm serious. Not diction, no attention to punctuation, terrible. I almost had to just skip the whole chapter. Reading with a bizarre sing song cadance only works with poetry, and then only rarely. Giving it 5 stars anyway because most of the readers are good and the story is really good.
