    Story
    "Ruined by terrible narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator has a droning monotone and speaks much too quickly. It's like he doesn't understand or refuses to place emphasis on any words at all. I don't understand - Poe is such rich material. He takes no breaks, he doesn't pause, he doesn't let any word or phrase have meaning, I have never heard anything like it.


    What other book might you compare Edgar Allan Poe: Selected Tales to and why?

    I have not heard another audio book like this one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Diego Guerrero’s performances?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Edgar Allan Poe: Selected Tales?

    I wouldn't have cut anything, just better directed the narrator to show some emotion. Just because the text is several hundred years old doesn't mean it has to be read in a stilted and formal tone.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
