Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe

The Stories of Edgar Allen Poe

Title: Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe
Author: Stacy King
Rating: ★★★

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Edgar Allan Poe’s stories have always been classics and I think most people have enjoyed them overall. With Stacy King writing these mangas, this is sure not to disappoint!

Probably what I love best about Stacy King’s writing is that the reader can really feel the emotion of the characters whether it be fear, anger, or even happiness. The reader feels like they truly understand the characters, not just that s/he is a bystander in the story.

I really did enjoy this manga, however, I felt a little disconnect for whatever reason…possibly that all of the stories are dark. It’s also possibly I struggled because there was a lot of description, and if anyone knows me, I get sidetracked then. My favorite story was the last one of the manga, which I also think happens to be the longest. One more Manga Classic left after this one :/
