The Works of Edgar Allan Poe, Raven Edition, Volume 2


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 8 reviews)

Monday, January 19, 2009 marked Edgar Allan Poe's 200th birthday. Though these tales need no introduction, the rationale for starting with volume two is threefold: many of the best-loved (and best) tales are included, the vast majority run from 15 to 30 minutes, and the other volumes can then be recorded without repetition, if there is interest in doing so. (Summary by M.L. Cohen)

(5 stars)

This read has great vocabulary. The stories are interesting, which makes up for a few poor readers. I recommend this book to people who like creepy tales and understand advanced vocabulary.

(5 stars)

Mike Vendetti (sp?) is the amazing reader I was referring to in my earlier (5 star!) review. I didn't realize that each story is read by a different person. The others might be great as well, I just haven't listened to them yet.
