Audiobooks, Halloween

Review: The Edgar Allan Poe Audio Collection

3.5 Stars

I’ve read a few of Poe’s stories and poems and I’ve attempted to read others only to come to the conclusion that they, like the plays of William Shakespeare, are most enjoyable when performed. In this case performed by two great dramatic actors – Basil Rathbone and Vincent Price.  I don’t often listen to audiobooks but their interpretations of Poe’s tales and poems were thoroughly enjoyable and thrilling – a perfect addition to my Halloween reading.

If you enjoy listening to or reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe, you may also enjoy the over-the-top campy film adaptations starring Vincent Price.  And if you enjoy those movies, do watch Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone (along with Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, and comedy icon Joe E. Brown) in The Comedy of Terrors and have a wicked Halloween.
