to be enjoyed in special environment

update : I had written a review in titled " the narrorator ruined it for me" I disliked the performance and had no interest in continue listening although I had received this free copy for review purposes .

after posting the review , I saw my mom and ended up talking about the book . I picked a place at random for her to listen to the narrorator whom I didn't like. right away , we both went silent and became captive . soon enough , I started listening to the audio book from the begining .
this time , I couldn't put it to down. I also liked the narrator but still prefer to take breaks In between chapters . while listening, I feel like am an invisible force in the world of the book observing what is happening . am not done yet but decided to update my review cause I felt my earlier review was unjust .
I noticed that given the theme of the book , it's might not be a book that someone can just pick up at any time or to have a sound in the background . the more concentrated I was , the more I enjoyed it .
I might consider getting a soft copy but as an addition rather than a substitute.


old review: i received a free copy to review the book . unfortunately, I couldn't finish it . I really tried but couldn't get into it AT ALL.. the parts that I was able to listen to was enjoyable ( story wise ) . I have been trying to figure what I didn't like about the narrorator. it felt like he was performing / bad acting and it was monotone without any emotions . I might consider getting a paper copy of the book.

An unsettling gothic journey with Edgar Allen Poe

Having read the paperback, I was interested to see if an audiobook could add anything extra to the storytelling, and I'm pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised.

The spoken word is perfectly suited to Poe's narration and adds another level of intensity to the tale. If you close your eyes it's almost like Poe is there with you, relating the story of his strange journey and pulling you into his macabre world.

Would definitely recommend treating your ears and giving this a listen.
