Publisher's Summary

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket is Edgar Allan Poe's only complete novel, published in 1838. Set in 1827, it is an exciting blend of science, romance, adventure, realism, and supernaturalism. It is based on the actual experiences of J.N. Reynolds, whose book Poe consulted. The narrative comprises the details of a mutiny on board the American brig Grampus on her way to the South Seas. The young hero, Pym, aided by Augustus, the captain's son, becomes a stowaway. Poe incorporates it all: butchery, shipwreck, famine, massacre, and deliverance. But it is Pym's friendship and friction with Augustus that form the major part of the book's aesthetic design.

Rather a Fanciful Tale

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, it made me scratch my head a lot, and say, but what about.....this & that.
And then there was the ending, just as you're thinking OMG what is going to happen next, it ends, and I'm saying What the .....!

Any additional comments?

I know it's POE, so don't everybody get up in arms, but the ending was such a let down :-(
