I received an advanced copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review on my blog and NetGalley.
The Paris Mysteries (Deluxe Edition) by Edgar Allen Poe. Publish date 28th April 2020.
I selected this book as one of my first ones to read from NetGalley and I was so so excited to read it, however, I have to admit I DNFR this book.
I want to be completely honest and transparent when I review any book, one I’ve purchased, been gifted or received via NetGalley and I just couldn’t complete this book 😦
Made up of three stories I only completed The Murders in the Rue Morgue and I got partway through The Mystery of Marie Rogêt before I gave up.
I mean The Murders in the Rue Morgue was just WEIRD, the storyline at least. And I got so wound up with The Mystery of Marie Rogêt it felt like we were going round in circles, things were getting repeated so many times and I was frustrated by it.
The writing itself and the depth of the writing, the clear effort put into it, were nothing short of impeccable, I just didn’t enjoy the story aspects.
Let me know if you’ve read this book or plan on reading it, I’d love to know your thoughts. Em xxx
