A Descent into the Maelstrom
The Murders in the Rue Morgue
The Purloined Letter
The Black Cat
The Fall of the House of Usher
The Pit and the Pendulum

The Cask of Amontillado
The Assignation
The Tell-Tale Heart
Diddling

Narrative of A. Gordon Pym

Journal Entry 2 by wingmelydiawing from Rockville, Maryland USA on Wednesday, September 02, 2009
The Balloon-Hoax - Wow. That was really boring.
Ms. Found in a Bottle - Good suspense, but the ending confused me.
A Descent into the Maelstrom - Not too memorable.
The Murders in the Rue Morgue - A rather silly Holmes-esque mystery tale.
The Purloined Letter - Not bad, but far too wordy.
The Black Cat - Deliciously disturbing.
The Fall of the House of Usher - Not as interesting as his others, but good atmosphere.
The Pit and the Pendulum - A delightful tale of suspense.
The Masque of the Red Death - Meh. Weird for no reason and kind of boring.
The Cask of Amontillado - I think makes Poe so memorable is his vivid first-person accounts from the point of view of a killer.
The Assignation - I couldn't follow this one. What did the drowning child and the art aficionado have to do with one another?
The Tell-Tale Heart - Funnier than I'd remembered. One of my all-time favorites.
Diddling - A random essay on swindling.
The Man That was Used Up - Silly, amusing, but ends a bit too abruptly.
Narrative of A. Gordon Pym - Some good bits, but I think I just don't like maritime fiction.
