Roberts’ stirring rendition of Poe’s classic Gothic tale will surely leave the listener with goose bumps in this riveting audiobook.
The horrors of the Spanish Inquisition, with its dungeon of death, and the overhanging gloom on the House of Usher demonstrate unforgettably the unique imagination of Edgar Allan Poe. Unerringly, he touches upon some of our greatest nightmares: Premature burial, ghostly transformation, words from beyond the grave. Written in the 1840s, they have retained their power to shock and frighten even now.
Also in this collection of Poe's tales of mystery and imagination: "The Black Cat", "The Facts in the Case of M Valdemar", "The Cask of Amontillado", "Ligeia", "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Masque of the Red Death", "The Premature Burial", and "The Raven".

Good if you like Poe, otherwise skip it.
Would you try another book from Edgar Allan Poe and/or William Roberts?
Would you recommend The Masque of the Red Death to your friends? Why or why not?
No, unless you are a Poe fan then there is no reason to read this.
Would you listen to another book narrated by William Roberts?
Could you see The Masque of the Red Death being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
It probably has, but its too short to be anything other than a short tv episode, unless they take a lot of liberties.
Any additional comments?
It is interesting if you like Poe, if you don't then skip it.
