    "Probably too complete"

    Forty two short stories later, I can say that I'm not sorry I've reached this advanced age without having previously experienced a greater range of Poe's work. Of course there are the three that I was already very fond of - the Masque of the Red Death, the Tell Tale Heart, and the Raven. Of the rest, only Berenice and The Black Cat were actually engaging. 90% of the other stories were interminable rambling followed by a brief and unsatisfying payoff.

    "5/7 Would Buy Again"

    This has a few great stories that you can't find everywhere, however, it also has a small handful of my least favorite. Bob Thomley is subtle enough to not jar your attention away from the story but does not fail to have very lovely inflection.

    Story
    "Enjoyable and not overwrought"

    The narration was excellent and I do so enjoy Poe. I find it pleasant to listen to Poe while cycling (it does so take ones mind off the hills.)

    What I do not like is that the stories are uselessly labeled as Chapter 1, Chapter 2 etc. This makes it quite tedious to find a particular story.

    Also, some of my favorite Poe Stories are not included (e.g. "The Gold-Bug" and "Landor's Cottage").

    Still, I like it

    Story
    "Impossible to navigate"

    This is a great collection, wonderfully narrated. But, and it is a huge but, there is no table of contents to help you find a specific story.
    The listings of Chapter 1, Chapter 2 are useless when you're looking for a particular story.

    "need better narrator"

    I like the works of Poe, but the narration ruined it for me. I didn't much care for his voice and his pacing and over all performance ruined it for me

    "Horrible narrator!"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is all wrong for reading Poe. If you just listen to the tone of his voice, and not to the words he is speaking, you might think you are listening to the complete works of Garrison Keillor, not the works of Edgar Allan Poe. This audio book is getting returned, I couldn't listen to more than a couple of stories.

    "A Classic that should not be overlooked!"

    A wonderful compilation of fantastical stories of an incredible poet! Bob Thomley, beautifully narrates, although his particular inflection in some areas was hard to get used to.
