Six Creepy Stories by Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe has the ability to manipulate language so well that he could engage my imagination and get me terrified even though little was 'done' in the sense of horrible actions described. My imagination, under the power of his creepy words, conjured the atmosphere and did the rest by itself. In this recording I've chosen some of his stories that succeed so well in leaving lingering hair raising memories with me: The Telltale Heart; The Masque of the Red Death; The Black Cat; The Raven, the Casque of Amontillado and Berenice. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did reading them. (Summary by phil chenevert) (1 hr 59 min)

Creepy Tales By: Edgar Allen Poe
I loved hearing his literary works told by this narrator. His voice was easy to listen too and he spoke enthusiastically whenever parts of the story required it. This is my first book using this app and look forward to more!
I'm learning about Edgar Allan Poe in my . Class and I'm in 8th grade and my teacher got me addicted to this story that were reading this week so I love Edgar Allan Poe
This is my first book in this app & I love it. Thanks to the reader I can enjoy the book without actually read it XD Well done :)
I like the tone, pauses and the pronounciation of the reader, specially the reading of The Raven. As I am not a native English speaker, I easily understood the pronounciations. Better done than other readers of Edgar's work at librivox.

I appreciate the attempt that was made. parts were excellent. Unfortunately I heard a echo in more than one story which means the reader had a monitor or headset was to loud and being picked up by the mic. Some of the words were mispronounced or emphasis was not written or over acted. When Poe had described how the word was stated by the character the reader should have read it as described. Poe's writing does not require such an attempt to emphasize or act it out. Great attempt. Better than others.
good recording, although I've read this specific story by Edgar Allan Poe many times... its like a movie vs a book. I guess I've been reading it with more passion. ... kind of dulled down one of my all time favorites.
Double thumbs up to the reader for he has read fairly clear enough, much better then those other readers who I have encountered , whose recording of the same stories were poor and uninteresting.
The reader didn't bother to learn how to pronounce some of the words, (e.g. 'iron', 'monomaniacal', 'ceased', and 'chimera'), and he often moves on too quickly for the listener to absorb the dramatic impact at the end of key sentences. His coughing is really good, though.
