One Voice Recordings presents amazingly versatile voice actor David Ian Davies performing three of Edgar Allan Poe's most famous short stories.
Oblong Box is Poe's shipboard tale of a pleasure cruise to New York that progresses from odd to horribly grotesque.
In The Pit and the Pendulum, the infamous trials and inhuman violence of the French Inquisition are the inspiration for Poe's narrative of one man's waking nightmare as he finds himself being driven mad in a torture chamber by one horrific confrontation with hideous immolation after another.
The Black Cat is Poe's renowned and blood curdling story of one man's descent into madness, focused on his steadily growing and inexplicable hatred of a once beloved black feline. This tale is highly disturbing and not for the squeamish.
Poe - 3 stories
I am new to I-tunes and audio books. Was browsing throguh the previews of several authors, and came acorss Edgar Allen Poe, an old favorite of mine. I was most disappointed in the narrative style of the reader...sounded more like a newscaster than a dramatic reader. These wonderful stories deserve more drama and OOmpfh.
I purchased this audio book with the intent of burning it to a CD and playing it for my 10th grade English class. The narration of this tale is awful. The reader sounds lifeless and moves through the story at an unnecessarily fast pace.
boo! this is scary. boo!
