{Synopsis} – The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe is a brilliant collection of some of his best-known stories: The Tell Tale Heart (a murder’s haunting guilt), The Cask of Amontillado (a story of brilliant revenge), and The Fall of the House of Usher (an ancient house full of very dark secretes). Also included in this collection are The Mask of the Red Death (horrors of ‘the Plague’), and the most famous of all his poems: The Raven (a lover’s decline into madness). Best read in a dimly-lit room with the curtains drawn, Poe’s brilliant works come to life in darkly thrilling ways in this Manga Classic adaptation.

{My thoughts} – I have never really been a huge fan of Edgar Allan Poe. However, with that said. I really enjoyed reading through this book. The illustrations seem to portray every creepy and icky feeling that you get when reading some of his work. This book successfully made me feel like I was being creeped out throughout it’s pages.

As, I have stated I am not a big fan, but those that are, I really think will enjoy this book. There is so much to enjoy from the creepy text, too the eerie almost unsettling illustrations. I can see this book having a large appeal with readers that enjoy this kind of read.

If you like to read eerie and be creeped out when reading, this is the perfect book for you! I am sure that you too will feel all the same emotions I’d encountered as I was reading. There are so many and the illustrations help to portray them so nicely. It’s definitely in my opinion if anything a once and a lifetime kind of read. I just don’t recommend reading after dark!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
