Not so in Poe's case. His short stories are superb. He has an uncanny ability to create a sense of dark, brooding grotesquery in the space of a few sentences. The best stories for me in this collection are 'The Pit and the Pendulum', 'The Fall of the House of Usher', 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' and 'The Purloined Letter'. Added to which, this edition also contains some of his poetry as well as essays, reviews and other collected writings, making it a great introduction to a great writer. Best read with the light on!
Anyway in short, I liked the book. It's very well written, although somewhat slow paced, but I still think it's an admirable piece of writing. A link to my full thoughts is here:
But I WOULD recommend buying this
