    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubMatthew Pearl's The Poe Shadow is the first book I've read in a while that I did not like at all The premise is interesting a contemporary of Edgar Allen Poe attempts to discover what happened in the final days before the poet's death Pearl had written the moderately entertaining The Dante Club prior to this and I had expected to see the improvement that often comes with an author's sopho effort Instead Pearl only manages to serve up a snooze festTo begin with Quentin Clark is the most unsympathetic and annoying protagonist I have ever encountered He throws away his job and his fiance at the merest whisper of a conspiracy He's obsessed with Poe beyond all rational thought After abandoning his fiance for over a year and a half h

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubLike all good horror aficionados I consider myself a Edgar Allen Poe fan as much as the next manwoman The iconic author set so much foundation for the dark genres we love and enjoy today So I was instantly intrigued when this book blipped on my radar A mystery surrounding the death of the great Poe? Count me in Alas The Poe Shadow was a disappointment through and through This novel just didn't cut it no matter which way I tried to slice it It failed to have any of the creepiness or darkness or moodiness that I've come to associate with Poe The story was weak the storytelling dragged and I found myself caring little for anything within the pages

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubIt seems that I am outnumbered here in the reviews I really enjoyed this book a lot Many readers are commenting that The Poe Shadow is not as good as The Dante Club Sure a serial killer on the loose in Boston is compelling stuff Graphic murder and mayhem trumps an intellectual mystery in Balti While reading The Poe Shadow I tried to avoid comparing the two works as each deserves recognition on its own terms Popular sentiment is

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubWhile this was an interesting subject the mystery surrounding Poe's death was written well I HATED the lead character He was whiney obsessive and at times down right stupid He's one of those guys with book smarts but is dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to real life He is obsessive to the point of loosing everything he ishas his career fortune home finance friendsthe only thing that keeps him from absolutely loosing everything is due to friends coming to his aid at the endIf I had been reading this book rather than listening to it as a part of my dull commute I would not have been able to finish it The only reason why this has 2 stars rather than 1 is the ending Quintin Clark finally pulls it together I actuall

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubI enjoyed Dante Club I like historical fiction and so was looking forward to reading The Poe Shadow I even bought it in hardcover which is rare for me Well it was terrible Quite possibly the worst book I've ever read It was totally unclear to me what was going on was he crazy or was all this stuff really happening to him? I was hoping it would be brilliantly explained at the end so I kept trudging along even though it was beyond tedious There was no payoff in the end It was so bad that I was mad when I finished It literally put me in a bad mood It's about a Balti lawyer who's obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe and how he died he wants to prove to the world that Poe wasn't really a drunken lout who died on the street and so he sets out t

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubI think I actively disliked this bookThe I think of it the I dislike I read his book about Dante and didn't hate but wow I disliked this oneFirst off I know a lot about Poe Helps that I was a docent fancy word for tour guide at the Richmond Poe Museum So yeah I got your Poe right hereThe whole plot didn't make sense Oh my god I hated the main character who was pretty much a 19th century stalker Poe should have gotten a restraining order on this guy So when Poe dies the main character Clark decides to hunt down the inspiration for Auguste Dupin from Murders in the Rue Morgue and find out what happened to PoeHijinks ensueBut annoying boring hijinkslowjinks?Either way it's just OMIGOD GET TO THE POINT and WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS and DON'T YOU HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO and WOW SHE SHOULD TOTALLY DUMP YOU and OMIG

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubAlthough I appreciate novels as good literature and occasionally forces of social change Uncle Tom's Cabin is a good example as it strengthened the abolitionist movement I don't normally read them as I find truth to be fascinating than fiction The Poe Shadow is set in antebellum America The protagonist a young attorney risks life and limb to unravel the mystery of Edgar Allan Poe's death and enlists the aid of a French detective supposedly the prototype for Poe literary sleuth C Auguste Dupin It's well written fast paced and evokes the 1840s well but what makes The Poe Shadow outstanding is the author's discovery of a possible clue to what really killed Poe in October 1849 This eye opening piece of evidence backed by modern medical opinion appears in its own section at the end

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubOn Oct 7 1849 a little known poet and author of strange gothic tales died in a Balti hospital He had been found disheveled and injured in an alleyway After his death a small funeral was held at a small Balti Presbyterian church A total of four people attended The man's name was Edgar Allan PoeThe true events leading to the mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe remain a mystery to this day No one knows what he was doing in Balti as he was supposed to be in New York at the timeThere is also the question as to his condition clearly intoxicated which was not that odd considering Poe had been a notorious alcoholic for much of his adult life What was odd was that months before he ha

    The Poe Shadow PDF/EPUB ê The Poe PDF/EPUB ² shadow pdf, The Poe free, The Poe Shadow EpubMy rating should actually be taken as 35 stars This is the 2nd book involving Edgar Allan Poe I've read in the past year The other being The Beautiful Cigar Girl a work of non fiction this being historical fiction It takes place in mid 19th century Balti at the time of Poe's death which the press has leaped upon as an object lesson of the evils of drink A young lawyer admirer of Poe becomes incensed at this slander sets out to make the record straight but his obsession may cost him everything professionally materially romantically and perhaps even his sanity if not his life Balti is vividly drawn as that bipolar city just below the Mason Dixon line that exhibits aspects of the antebellum South Northern urban society
