Classic Poe Poe Poe

Classic !!! this heroin fiend /psycho schizoid could sure write 'em !!! really weird imagery and classic haunted tale prose--the narrator is good and dramatic without being "William Shatner" over the top--highly recommended for all horror lovers---Schpondobondondo Joe

Great reading, bad format.

I really like the reader. He is expressive and dignified without being pretentious in a Victorian sort of way. However this is a horrible audiobook format. The entire thing is divided into two tracks, about 2.5 hours each. The individual tracks are not divided into chapters, neither on iTunes nor my iPod. Hopefully you're using a machine that let's you pick up where you left off so you don't have to fast-forward so many minutes. There is no way to find the story you are looking for without listening to the whole thing or randomly jumping around hopnig to hear something by chance that you recognize. Not only are there no chapter divisions, but the introduction to the book does not tell you which stories are in which order. You have to wait until you hear a few seconds of silence after a story before the reader says the title of the next story. Overall this is a major pain in the butt, but the excellent reading combined with the low price makes this a good value in my opinion. If you want individual stories for free you can get amateur versions at LibriVox.org.
