Edgar Allen Poe’s The Complete Tales and Poems

Overview: I’m sure everyone has heard of Edgar Allen Poe. After all, a few of his stories and poems have been made into movies in the early days of Hollywood. This just happens to be a complete collection of his works.

Story Telling: Well, we have poetry, some science-fiction, a few horror, and –surprise!– Mr. Poe put out a few detective stories.

Dislikes: Outside of the gore in the horror ones, most of these stories made no sense to me. It’s almost as if Mr. Poe was playing brain games with his audience.

Likes: For the most part, our antagonists got what was coming to them.

Favorite Stories: “The Man That Was Used Up” and “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” were pretty good.

Conclusion: I don’t know what to make of Mr. Poe’s work. For someone with the reputation of either being loved or hated, he really didn’t leave much of an impression on me. Must be a matter of tastes.
