An awesome friend of mine gave me a copy of this book, but this edition has different stories. It combined classic horror stories with others that had more mysterious conclusions and a pretty large sense of humor in my opinion. There were some amazing lines and just great story telling and fun. And the cover of my copy is almost as awesome as my friend.

Although this is the ISBN number as my copy of "Famous Tales of Mystery and Horror," my book not only has a different cover, but different stories as well. My copy contains: The Taletell Heart, The Masque of the Red Death, The Oblong Box, The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Purloined Letter.

This is my second time reading through this particular collection and I love it (even though I think Poe's detective stories are a little too easy to solve).

So I judged a book by its cover. I judged it by its author and title, too. How couldn't I? It's lucky I did because this was a very fun read full of dramatic deaths and cutting remarks.

No hay que dejarse llevar por la portada, porque ninguna historia es de horror, hay muy pocas que son de misterio. La mayoria son muy aburridas, pero hay otras que son muy buenas.
