Reviews for The Penguin Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
Contrary to the dislike
To begin, as I am an utter bumbling idiot and my laptop is incessantly slow, I managed to click the 'dislike' button rather than the 'like' button. Oh the perils of 21st century problems and the repercussions of downloading dangerous programs to my laptops fragile harddrive.
Edgar Allen Poe, one of my favourite writers of all time was well put together in this book and all of his famous works of literature are accounted for in this penguin edition, monstrous sized book. Definitely worth the read and the sore arms from holding it up.
If I could rate it a 6 out of 5 I would, unfortunately, my laptop has played up on me again and I've only been able to rate it a 4...

An affordable and well presented complete works for any Poe fan.
As a lover of Poe's stories and poems, finding a nice copy of his works can be hard. The books themselves are often of bad print, with small text and incredibly thin paper and in some cases typos. Not this one.
The book itself is a sturdy paperback with good sized text and strong paper. And as a person who unfortunately does judge a book by its cover, I like it! The book claims to include every story and poem written by Poe, so you can almost guarantee if you want it, it's got it. There is also a very readable introduction by Will Self aswell as a very brief account of Poe's life and death.
This book is NOT a pocket sized book; at 1026 pages it does not easily fit into a bag or a pocket! It is a big and heavy book and I recommend buying separate short story books or the poem book, if you are planning to travel or study.
Overall a lovely complete works for anyone with an interest in the man known for his horror stories and fascination with the macabre! by Terri L Wilcox
