      I really did not like this book. It was boring and not interesting at all. It's probably because I don't really like poetry. This is what I thought of Eight Tales of Terror.

      & eight short? tales on why I re-enjoyed reading this book for the books that made me love reading challenge.Reason number 1 This way, I don't have to rush myself to finish either Don Quixote or Also Sprach Zarathustra. Both of those take a whack of time to read, and while I do enjoy large windmills and Strauss, perhaps choosing to read both those books at the same time was a mistake. Toooooo much philosophy makes brain go something something.Just like this:The Simpson's have always had the [...]

      Edgar Allan Poe is a great writer. He seems to like getting inside the head of the characters in his works, which makes them unique. I thought that A Masque of Red Death was the best poem in this book. There is definitely a large variety of vocabulary throughout the book.

    5. Sarah Sammis on said:

      It's an interesting mix of stories that range from murder for revenge, ghost stories, demonic possession, death personified, etc. The book has a very brief introduction that highlights various aspects of Poe's life and it is one of the rare times that I actually wished for a longer introduction. Also each of the eight stories has a paragraph or two of introduction that includes interesting tidbits like who first published the story and what was going on in the time of Poe's life when it was publ [...]

      Edgar Allen Poe is a great writer, but I think he was a bit crazy. He writes so you really get into the heads of the main characters, however it isnt a place I would like to stay. These stories are classics for a good reason. Eerie, spooky and just a bit gross.

    7. Rogue-van (the Bookman) on said:

      Although the elaborate language seems strange today, it helps establish the mood. Poe, a master of the eerie, succeeds in titillating his readers with glimpses into the bizarre.

    8. Cambria on said:

      Never am I ever going to read this againease don't ask me why's just a thing ;)

    9. Aron on said:

      Yep. Still not a fan. I'm impressed with the style of his writing but find the stories themselves too shallow.

      When I think of Edgar Allen Poe I think if a crazy person. He is a master of creepy and scary. The 8 stories in this book left me with a creepy, uneasy, feeling. 8 Tales by Edgar Allen Poe is really good, it has 2 stories that I enjoyed the most and they both gave me chills while reading. The Masque of the Red Death, and William Wilson, these 2 stories are my favorite.The Masque of the Red Death was creepy and chilling. The Red Death had devastated the country. The Prince had thrown a party, the [...]

      The book ‘Eight tales of terror’ has eight stories put into one book, all of them having their own philosophical takes and different topics. The stories taking a form of the author, Edgar Allan Poe, and his experiences in life and his understanding in the world. The stories; Cask of amontillado, Hop frog , Ms found in a bottle, Ligeia, Fall of the house of usher, William Wilson, the masque of the red death, and The imp of the perverse are stories of murder, to haunting ghosts show the terrif [...]

      Cast of AmontilladoPersonal ResponseThe book on Eight Tales of Terror was a pretty confusing book for me. The book was written by Edgar Allan Poe. I read the first story of The Cask of Amontillado. The book was pretty confusing for me.The book was written in short story form. I thought the book was a bit boring.PlotThe plot of this story took place in a creepy carnival. The story was narrated by the character Montresor. Montresor wanted to get revenge to the man, Fortunato. Montresor was plannin [...]

    15. Cassandra Miller on said:

      Edgar Allan Poe really is a master of terror, or at least the master of creepy feelings. Although I cannot really say that any of these eight stories ‘scared me’, I can say that 3 of them left me feeling uneasy and mentally disturbed. These 3 stories, which are also my favourites are “The Masque of the Red Death”, “The Fall of the House of Usher”, and “William Wilson”, and I like these three stories because it left me with an ending that I could not fulling explain. Was it a man [...]

    17. Matthew Thompson on said:

      The stories are good, but his writing style takes a bit getting used to.

    18. melydia on said:

      * The Cask of Amontillado - I think makes Poe so memorable is his vivid first-person accounts from the point of view of a killer.* Hop-Frog - Um. What is this man's obsession with orangutans?* MS. Found in a Bottle - Good suspense, but the ending confused me.* Ligeia - Didn't really go anywhere.* The Fall of the House of Usher - Not as interesting as his others, but good atmosphere.* William Wilson - Brilliant piece of horror.* The Masque of the Red Death - Meh. Weird for no reason and kind of b [...]

    19. Margarita on said:

      This book had many protagonist due to how their were eight tales from the author edgar Allan Poe. Each tale had a thrilling and suspenseful chapter. Full of terror and really creative animation. I would describe this books mood as terror. For example the "masque of the red death" had a dark vilian who killed everyone at the party. I would describe this books theme as a way to never try to escape from something because there will never be an exit to it. I enjoyed these eight tales, and I would re [...]

      I'd already read Poe's stories once, but thought I would reread them to celebrate Halloween. This just reaffirmed that I'm not a huge Poe fan. I like some of his poems and a few of his stories, but all-in-all, just not a fan. I disliked "Hop-Frog" and "The Cask of Amontillado", was bored by "MS. Found in a Bottle" and "Ligeia" and liked "Fall of the House of Usher" and "Masque of Red Death". A mixed bag of likes and dislikes.

    21. ScottBreslove on said:

      I don't know, I guess I am just not a big Poe fan. I thought the book wasok at best. I didn't feel that any of his writing was "scary" per se. I enjoyed the Masque of the Red Death, but I thought everything else was just average at best. A lot of the stories felt like they dragged on, while others felt like they had no substance to them at all. Maybe I am missing something, but his work didn't really seem to speak to me, scare me, or interest me too greatly.

    22. Emily on said:

      So, I think this poor man is seriously deranged. However, his imagery and ability to scare is very effective! :) Very mentally scary stuff. Sort of like the old-school 'Twilight Zone'. You want to laugh and shake it off, but it really is quite disturbing and you just can't stop thinking about it.

    23. Nina on said:

      Saya nyerah setelah baca Message in a bottle dan gak bisa baca cerita selanjutnya. Saya bolak balik, skimming halamannya. Baca cepat dan berusaha menemukan greget yang biasanya saya dapet kalo baca cermis tapi it wasn't there. :(

    24. Laurel L. Perez on said:

      This was a perfect little collection to read during the month of scary tales, witches, and horror flicks. Poe really is a glorious little master of suspense, and terror. Dated as these stories are, I'd happily argue they are still relevant, and just perfect.

    25. Charles on said:

      My introducition to Poe, in an earlier edition. Very fine tales.For reasons unknown to me, cross lists this book under "Great Short Works" by Poe. Maybe they are the same book but there is a specific book from inc called "Eight Tales of Terror," with an isbn of 0590411365

    26. Bob on said:

      These short stories are classic Poe, terror with a twist at the end. I liked The Pit and the Pendulum and The Black Cat best - unpredictable endings.
