Fall of the House of Usher and Other Tales
Fall of the House of Usher and Other Tales | Edgar Allan Poe
39 posts | 25 read | 7 to read
The celebrated master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe brought his nightmare imaginings to life in his classic stories told in his signature dark and vibrant style. This volume gathers together fourteen of his richest and most influential tales, including: The Pit and the Pendulum, his reimagining of Inquisition tortures; The Tell-Tale Heart, an exploration of a murderer s madness, which Stephen King called the best tale of inside evil ever written; The Fall of the House of Usher, Poe s tour de force about a family doomed by a grim bloodline curse; and his pioneering detective stories, The Purloined Letter and The Murders in the Rue Morgue, featuring a rational investigator with a poetic soul. Also included is Poe s only full-length novel, "Narrative of A. Gordon Pym." With an Introduction by Stephen Marlowe and an Afterword by Regina Marler"

I finished BOTH my #bookspin and #doublespin selections for June (YAY!). This keeps me at half read so far this year.

I enjoyed this audiobook. William Roberts is a great narrator who I've listened to before. This collection had some stories that I had not read before. A pick for me.

#insomnia my old friend.
I can‘t sleep (worried about one of my yearly cancer screenings on Monday).
So I decided to do a little #audiocrocheting to Poe.
William Roberts is one of my favorite narrators.
He did an awesome job on Bill Bryson‘s A Walk in the Woods.
This is the start to my first ever attempt at a crocheted sweater. 😬 The 🧶 is a blend of recycled water bottles and recycled alpaca. So soft.

Tera66 Sending positive vibes! I have insomnia often due to some of my meds. May I suggest sleep stories, they help me when I really really can't sleep. I get mine from audible, but maybe youtube has some for free? 13mo

Many of these stories were exciting, but some of them I just couldn‘t get into them. Overall enjoyable to read if you have some free time on your hands. Very enjoyable night time reading. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📚

I need some advice. I‘m wondering if I should just mark the tagged book as finished, because I can‘t get into the last story. I normally don‘t do that. What do y‘all think.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag You gotta do what feels right to you. (Personally, I think marking it as complete is fine) ✨ 2y
wanderinglynn I‘ve marked short story books finished if I‘ve read most of them. 👍🏻 2y

This is my so so face. Its Tiny Book Tuesday! I read 2 stories from this book as part of the 1001 books to read before i die list. First one was The Purloined Letter which i DNF because it was too boring and way too much useless information for him to explain how he found the letter. I enjoyed the second one "The Fall of the House of Usher". Nice haunted house story. I give these stories 2 stars.

From Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe

RadicalReader @SassyGirlReading I practically had to hold back a scream of excitement when my 10th grade English teacher was telling us we were going to be reading The Raven and then introduced to Fall of the House of Usher 5y
SassyGirlReading I love Poe! I even named one of my cats after him. 5y
