  • The Edgar Allan Poe Audio Collection

    Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone brilliantly interpret twenty of Edgar Allan Poe's most chilling stories and poems - an unforgettably intense listening experience!

    "Great reading, poor"
    Overall

    As previously stated, the reading is superb, but as a person who has never encountered more of Poe than the well known, "Quoth the raven, 'Nevermore'", I would have appreciated a clearer "packaging". There are no titles or significant story dividers. The narrator simply starts at the beginning and continues on. While listening, one can usually figure out where each story ends and another begins, but, if you're not familiar with the Poe material (like myself), you won't know which story you're listening to. Still worth it, but could be better.

    Story

    In a time like the present, three young people dream of the fabulous ruins of a decaying city somewhere in the distant future: the Kalpa. The dreams of Ginny and Jack overtake them without warning, leaving their bodies behind while carrying their consciousnesses forward.

    "Looking for more"
    Overall

    I really enjoy Greg Bear's books, especially Eon et al. (still waiting for those in audio format), but this book is not one of his best. It is still an interesting book but seemed disjointed. Ever have the feeling an author is striving for a larger idea but just not reaching it? Well, that is this book. An undertone of great ideas but no grand pinnacle nor colligation.
