Although Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is best known today as a master of macabre fiction, his writings cover a wide range of other forms, including poetry, drama, criticism, and historical commentary. The Raven Edition presents his complete literary output in five volumes, the first of which contains three tributes to Poe and eight of his stories.

I was really looking forward to this audiobook.

however, it sounds like it's being read by a text to speech bot and my drunken, lisping, uninspired uncle.

The tales of the Norse gods, of the giants, demons, trolls and dwarves, still have the power to fascinate more than a thousand years after they were first told. Here are the stories of the one-eyed god Odin, Tyr the god of war, of the cunning Loki, of Thor the mighty thunder god and a host of others.

Would you consider the audio edition of Tales from the Norse Legends to be better than the print version?

Enough detail to learn the awesome stories behind the Norse Legends, very well narrated - I'm very picky with voices and found this one to be very listenable

Would reccomend

Have you listened to any of Benjamin Soames’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes - Just as good, would listen to more by him

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Smile - very happy.

Any additional comments?

Worth it for the price.
