Picked up at the The Book Thing in Baltimore. Stories included in this collection: The Cask of Amontillado, Hop-Frog, MS. Found in a Bottle, Ligeia, The Fall of the House of Usher, William Wilson, The Masque of the Red Death, The Imp of the Perverse

Journal Entry 2 by wingmelydiawing from Rockville, Maryland USA on Thursday, September 03, 2009
* The Cask of Amontillado - I think makes Poe so memorable is his vivid first-person accounts from the point of view of a killer.
* Hop-Frog - Um. What is this man's obsession with orangutans?
* MS. Found in a Bottle - Good suspense, but the ending confused me.
* Ligeia - Didn't really go anywhere.
* The Fall of the House of Usher - Not as interesting as his others, but good atmosphere.
* William Wilson - Brilliant piece of horror.
* The Masque of the Red Death - Meh. Weird for no reason and kind of boring.
* The Imp of the Perverse - A strange little story on why we knowingly act not in our own interest - such as lying, procrastinating, drinking, and other things sure to get us into trouble - to explain a confession of murder.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I left this book at Poe’s Memorial Grave at Westminster Burying Grounds during my first ever visit there. The grave was a very popular attraction today (the day before Halloween) and many people were there to have their photos taken by the memorial. I met lots of nice people and still managed to leave the book and take a photo of it.

Congrats and welcome to BookCrossing!
