    "Oh the absolute horror! And I don't mean Poe..."
    What disappointed you about The Complete Poetical Works of Edgar Allan Poe?

    I love Audiobooks and Audible has changed my life, but who in their right mind would have Ken Maxon deliver Poe's poetry?!?!?
    Ken Maxon's reading sounds like something typed into a 1990's speech synthesizer. Every sentence ends on an upwinding inflection like he's advertising the best deal in home supplies or an electronics store. I mean come on!!! The first poem is the Raven and forget about it sounding like the sad and soul stirring piece of work. It's read like a description of a bowling match!

    Seriously! Avoid Ken Maxon as a narrator. I don't mean to be ad hominem, but unless the book is comprised of a list of surprising facts, don't bother buying it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In every possible thinkable way...


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Bitter disappointment and I want my money back!


    Any additional comments?

    Why would a publisher do this? Is this wanton cruelty or just plain old stupid corner cutting so you don't have to pay a real actor to read?
