Poe's incredible sense of detail and impeccable accuracy greatly influenced Herman Melville's Moby Dick and countless other novels, but The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym itself is a spirited, exciting, action-packed story that continues to thrill readers to this day.

The melding of fiction and non fiction makes it a bit hard to swallow. The ending seems to clash with the reality Poe strives for. Huge sections go on explaining the inner workings of boats. The story slows to a crawl during the didactic sections. It could be half as long.
Having said that, the last two chapters are some of the best fiction I've ever read. No wonder so many writers based their fiction off this.
