    I had wanted to introduced my eleven year olds to Poe s writing, so we read this book of retellings of Poe s most famous stories My kids really enjoyed this book, especially my son Obviously, it s not going to be the same thing as reading the original stories, but I still think they were a good introduction to Poe s stories for younger readers.

    In general, the stories were not to my expectations after I read the introduction of this book depicting the short stories as suspensful, haunting, etc The beginings of Edgar s stories start off interstingly but they finish quite abruptly with horrible endings that make no sense to me or they finish quite ordinarily with no twists that make you want to know .The pacing of the stories seem rushed as if the author was looking to quickly be done with it and because of that it ruins the spooky vibe [...]

    I first read this when I was 11 years old It was good as an introduction to Edgar Allan Poe for a child because of the simplicity of the language, but I would recommend the original text to everybody else There is something in Poe s words and narrative style that gets lost when you simplify the text.
