Excellent Collection and Masterful Performance

First off, this is a wonderful collection with pretty much everything that Poe has ever written in a single book. The downloadable table of contents comes in VERY handy… navigating without it would be a nightmare.

Now for the voice that brought life to this book... I simply loved Mr. Duquenoy’s voice. It was a pure delight to listen to and he delivered a truly heartfelt performance in this reading. He pauses at the right moments and puts emphasis on the right words when needed, without ever over doing it. You will not get tired of this man’s voice!

For any Poe fans I think this is a great addition to your library which you will revisit over and over…

You Should Know

Somewhere in the very beginning chapters, the entire book gets moved back two chapters. If you download the table of contents and illustrations that are associated with this particular book (available on the description page of the book) you actually can pick and choose what you're listening to. I think chapter three runs into chap four and five. Not exactly sure, but I can say that the very first story, after all the intros, starts on chapter 6. So the story The Unparalleled Adventures of One Hans Pfaal is Chapter 6. And the book continues to be off by two chapters. I think the narrator is great. I don't see what people are complaining about.

Things we didn't know

I like listening to this before I go to sleep. You'll never tire of this reading and there are many writings I never knew, I never heard anyone mention Poe was one of the first science fiction writers but that's probably why my dad was so fond of him. I am really enjoying it and love listening to these stories

Very poor naration

I would not recommend this book to anyone. Very poor naration, it seems as if the narrator is in a hurry without much to add in the way he reads Also there is no way to go to a story you would like read. The worse and least entertaining book i could imagine.

It needs wisper-synch

I've always been fascinated by the genius of Edgar Allan Poe. I knew there had to be more to him than horror, macabre, and melancholy. And there is. But this edition of his complete works needs to be synched with the Kindle edition.

No chapter titles makes it worthless!

Why do they bother to put in all the time to make this audiobook and then make it worthless by not bothering to title the chapters?

There are 176 chapters.

Sure, you can download a pdf of the chapters, but then you've got to print out 7 pages of chapters! Are you going to take those with you when you listen on your phone?

Why not actually label the chapters? Other books do.

Lobotomised Narration.

The guy narrating sounds like hes reading aloud from a report on his own frontal lobotomy.
Flat, dull and he kept messing up the pronouncearions.

Great stories, bad narrator.

Love Edgar Allan Poe's work, but with this narration I just can't listen to it. The pace is repetitive, and the voice is monotonous and lacking inflection. The writing is incredible, and in this particular version the beauty of it is wholly lost.

robotic reader ruins book

I was really looking forward to this but unfortunately due to the reader reading as though so he was an automaton it sounds as though every word has been cut and paste very disappointing and extremely annoying to ruin something as good as Poe.

Awful narration and extremely dull stories

Granted I didn't listen to many of the stories, but the ones I did were very dull.

The worst narrator of ALL TIME

The works of Edgar Allan Poe are, of course, beyond reproach so I won't bother to comment as far greater minds than mine have already said all that need be said. All I will say is that the narrator chosen for this particular endeavour is the single WORST narrator I have ever had to suffer. Boring and seemingly lacking ANY and ALL emotional intelligence. How, given the wealth of talent out there, did this absolute NO TALENT DROSS ever get a gig like this?! In fact, how did he EVER get any work AT ALL??!!

Terrible narration

Absolutely zero attempt to make the narration remotely interesting, just fast hard to follow monotone.

Most boring reading ever

Poe's stories are some of the most interesting and gripping tales written and this narration manages to suck any sense of immersion or feeling out of them. Just straight reading of the text with no intonation or emotion whatsoever. It's worse than listening to politicians give speeches.

Much easier to listen to than read

So glad I listened to this. The language and sentences are so daunting when trying to read the printed version. Much much much easier to listen to in the car or on the run than to sit and read.
