Book: Extraordinary Narrations – Edgar Allan Poe

I started this book since March, and I just finished it the last week.

It contains the following short stories:

If you ask me which one I liked the most, I’d say: The pit and the Pendulum.

  1. This is actually one of my favorite books, The Pit and the Pendulum is great, but I also like The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Gold Bug. There’s a story on this list, “Metzengerstein” I don’t recognize, perhaps it wasn’t on the version I read. I also don’t see “MS. Found in a Bottle” on your list. It’s also one of my favorite short stories by Poe, it’s pretty disturbing, you can find it here

    • Maybe the versions we read are different.

      And yes, The Gold Bug would be my second choice; when I was reading it, I knew immediately where the Da Vinci code came from.

      Thanks for the recommendation.
