Summary

Christopher Perkin does an excellent job of voicing Poe's extraordinary works. His recitation of "Hopfrog", "The Tell-Tale Heart", and "The Murders of the Rue Morgue" are some of the masterpieces included in this creepfest.

Gothic brilliance wonderfully narrated.

I don't usually write reviews but this was truly excellent. Poe's brilliance is wonderfully portrayed by Christopher Perkin who has the gravitas and tone to pull off this superb rendition of the great man's work. In particular The Raven absolutely gripped me. For me this is the best audible book experience so far.

Great classic gothic horror!

Would you listen to Tales of Mystery & Imagination again? Why?

Yes, yes, a million times - yes!

Any additional comments?

Poe just knows how to press my buttons! Creepy, classic gothic horror at its best! The narration adds to the feel of the audio too. Well read.
