Goodreads Synopsis:

The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe is a brilliant collection of some of his best-known stories: 
The Tell Tale Heart (a murder’s haunting guilt), illustrated by Virginia Nitouhei
The Cask of Amontillado (a story of brilliant revenge), and illustrated by Chagen
The Fall of the House of Usher (an ancient house full of very dark secretes), illustrated by Linus Liu and Man Yiu

Also included in this collection are The Mask of the Red Death (horrors of ‘the Plague’), as illustrated by Uka Nagao, and the most famous of all his poems, The Raven (a lover’s decline into madness), illustrated by Pikomaro. 

Best read in a dimly-lit room with the curtains drawn, Poe’s brilliant works come to life in darkly thrilling ways in this Manga Classic adaptation.

Review:

This is a manga collection of some of Edgar Allan Poe’s best short stories. They include: The Tell Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, The Raven, The Mask of the Red Death, and The Fall of the House of Usher.

These stories are some of my favourite short stories. They are all descriptive and have lots of imagery that translates well to illustrations. I loved revisiting these classic stories and seeing them illustrated for the first time.

The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe (Manga Classics) is a great manga adaptation of his classic horror stories.

Thank you Udon Entertainment for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
