#EdgarAllanPoe

The Fall | Bethany Griffin

This was a pretty excellent, detailed retelling of The Fall of the House of Usher. I believe it‘s supposed to be YA but it seemed more like general fiction to me. A very atmospheric read.

A book you‘d recommend whose title starts with the featured letter.

I didn‘t know much about Edgar Allan Poe before starting this one especially the part about marrying his 13 year old cousin when he was 27.

I picked this up, lured in by the Poe references (and certainly wasn't disappointed there) but this felt too much like a YA written for younger readers for me to love it. I enjoyed theultiple POVs and I'd love to actually know what was going on...just not enough to pick up the second book in this duology.

I'm catching up on the classics with this collection of short stories by the master of the detective, mystery and macabre genres. The virtue of classic and must-read authors resides in that their work remains captivating and meaningful even almost 200 years later.

I like his short stories better but you can‘t ever go wrong reading anything by Poe. And while it‘s just stating the obvious, ‘The Raven‘ is awesome.
