Excellent Collection and Masterful Performance

First off, this is a wonderful collection with pretty much everything that Poe has ever written in a single book. The downloadable table of contents comes in VERY handy… navigating without it would be a nightmare.

Now for the voice that brought life to this book... I simply loved Mr. Duquenoy’s voice. It was a pure delight to listen to and he delivered a truly heartfelt performance in this reading. He pauses at the right moments and puts emphasis on the right words when needed, without ever over doing it. You will not get tired of this man’s voice!

For any Poe fans I think this is a great addition to your library which you will revisit over and over…

Excellent readings, wonderful voice, but...

This collection of Poe’s works is the best I have ever heard. The narrator has a rich, full voice. The dramatic presentation is excellent. Anyone wishing to immerse themselves in Poe’s stories will not be disappointed by this book.

However, and this is a complaint is leveled at ALL Audible books, the stories are labeled as “Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3”, etc. If you wish to hear a particular story, poem, or other work you have to find some method of locating it, such as making your own list. For me, that takes away from the enjoyment of the book.

Again, the content of this book is excellent, and if you don’t have a problem with unlabeled content, this should not take away from your enjoyment of this book. Overall I recommend buying this book, because the narrator and the content make it worth the purchase price.

Things we didn't know

I like listening to this before I go to sleep. You'll never tire of this reading and there are many writings I never knew, I never heard anyone mention Poe was one of the first science fiction writers but that's probably why my dad was so fond of him. I am really enjoying it and love listening to these stories

Why aren't the chapters Titled?

There is so many stories, but why aren't they titled so you can find them?

Bad Bad Narrator

This is the best selection of stories and poems I've found yet and I'm a lifelong fan of Poe and have many books on him. That being said the narrator is terrible, his voice is monotone and one dimensional. He has no depth or character and it's obvious that this is his first time reading Poe, I liken it to a bored high school kid reading aloud in class. Plus he reads as if everything is one long continuous story. If you didn't know already know where the stories began and ended, you'd be lost. If you want a narrator that gives true depth and a sense of the gothic atmosphere listen to "Edgar Allen Poe the Complete Stories" read by Bob Thomley.

Found Narration Monotonous

Though not without expression, the narrators tone seemed consistently matter of fact, as though trying to prove something to me through the statement of facts. The stories seemed rushed and without fluctuation in tone, speed or expression. As I have read much of Poe's work and found it enjoyable at a leisurely pace, I was surprised at how little I enjoyed listening to this particular performance. I would allow the possibility Mr. Duquenoy and I may be "separated by a common language" as he is British and I American, making me unaccustomed to and therefore uncomfortable with his inflection and pace.

The narration is the worst I have experienced.

I am only 5 chapters in and regret this purchase. As many have stated before, the narration is horrible. Also, the downloadable table of contents does not work. Very disappointed because this book is expensive.

reader lacking

These stories are amazing and I am still a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, but the performance here is monotone and does not add to the stories but instead made it difficult to follow or even make the link to the author. I continue to recommend the works of Poe but get a different audible copy.
