no chapter titles.

Without labeled chapter titles you can't easily skip to a certain story. I would like to hear "The Cask of Amontillado" but I have no idea how to find it among dozens of unmarked chapters.

Good collection for the price.

For the price this is a great collection. The narrator has a nice soothing voice and the pacing is good. I'm actually using this to slow down before going to sleep. The problem is that the content isn't really marked well so you have no story titles etc. If you just want all of Poe for one low price which sounds great get this!

Not the right narrator for this

I could hardly make it through the first chapter. Is there another narrator who can tell these stories?

Sub-par Narration

The narrator offer struggles and stumbles over
words, when he is not mispronounced them outright. I found this extremely distracting, and it definitely took away from my enjoyment of the book. I originally purchased this as an audio-sync, however this feature stopped working several hours in and neither I nor the customer service/technical support could get it working again. I had to finish this book as solely an audiobook. Had I not been so far into the book I would have found a version with a better narrator.

worst narrator ever

I struggled through 3 or 4 stories, but found the narrator UNBEARABLE. Not only is his pronunciation of foreign phrases EXCRUCIATING, he occasionally slaughters even ordinary English words. Then l skipped to the last selection, "the Bells', a poem i know well & love ... he even managed to ruin that ! Can I trade this in & use my credit on something with a better narrator?

Poe Stories

I love the classic stories from Poe, this was truly a treat. The only issue I have is that it has a skip or glitch every so often.

Edgar Allan Poe's: Book Review

I love the stories not all of them. The gentleman, that read them, voice was hypnosis.

Poe

excellent author and represents all of his works. The narrator did a superlative job helping us get through the dark passages of Edgar Allan Poe.

No table of contents

It certainly seems like good value to have Poe's complete works as one audiobook.
Unfortunately it is almost completely unusable, as there is no table of contents!
and thus no way to find any particular story or poem - you just have to listen to them all in order.

Bargain

Good narration and great stories. Indeed, Poe's Monsieur Bon-Bon would be enamoured by such a capital bargain.

Great Stories; Poor Reading

The narrator is terrible. He struggles with his pronunciations and even pronounces certain words inconsistently. Also, lines of text are skipped over.

Poe, of course, is brilliant. But, the narrator murders the text.

Bits in different languages especially the titles. No way of knowing what story one is listening to.
