Editorial Reviews

The short story "William Wilson" embodies Poe's characteristic gothic style, twisting plots, and puzzling endings. The tone of John L. Chatty's narration is of a cunning, almost slippery nature, ideally suited for this haunting tale exploring the idea of the double. The protagonist, William, is the book's narrator, his intricate language edged with sadness. This is a timeless story, and essential for any audiobook library.

Publisher's Summary

Poe is best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre and this story is no exception. In it, a man's life is seemingly ruined by one he considers an arch enemy - until a startling revelation at the end of the story.

Falsely advertised as unabridged

Extensive passages of descriptive text have been excised. Probably explains why this reading of the story is about 10-15 minutes shorter than other versions available on Audible. Can't recommend this.
