    "Horrors: Not Poe as Much as This Audio Track"

    Only 1 hour in length, still I couldn't get through it. The audio track was just too annoying. The narration is constantly accompanied by sound effects aimed, I'm guessing, at creating a horror-film like mood. But these effects are so loud that it sometimes drowns out the narration. And it gets to be tedious very quickly, and ultimately it becomes highly aggrevating. Because of the distracting sound effects it may be a bit unfair to critique the narrator, but it did seem to come off as a very flat reading. It had all the drama of someone reading a cake recipe. The female voice never conveyed the suspense and menace one would expect for a reading of Edgar Allen.

    "Frank is right- this is awful"

    I'm glad I didn't waste an actual credit on this and just spent the $2.60. The narrator sounds like she was tasered just before staring her reading- no emotion at all. Just like Frank said in his review, the sound effects were annoying to the point of distraction.
    Don't waste your money, and DON'T waste your credit.
