Poe's only novel
i got interested in this because after Poe wrote it, a real life incident happened that that mirrored his book prophetically. kind of earie even for Poe. The book didn't have the usual supernatural horror of his short stories, but plenty of natural gore and horror, realistic of what many sailors have gone through. it's good, but the ending is disappointing and uneven. still, i do recommend it for Poe fans for the realism, his knowledge of seamanship and the real-life horror of what so many sailors have gone through.
Rather a Fanciful Tale
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, it made me scratch my head a lot, and say, but what about.....this & that.
And then there was the ending, just as you're thinking OMG what is going to happen next, it ends, and I'm saying What the .....!
Any additional comments?
I know it's POE, so don't everybody get up in arms, but the ending was such a let down :-(
