Read the first five, was not impressed and didn't hold out much hope for anything better. Some nice writing, a couple of enchanting moments, but generally rubbish. Why so harsh? They mostly lacked any thematic depth. They didn't have anything much to say, except perhaps a few plain moral platitudes. From Edgar Allan Poe, who I'd heard of before, I expected at least something, but it was just like really bad horror. I almost gave this 1 star. A disappointing holiday read, waste of my time.
