My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Legacy of a Corrupted Mind is different from anything I’ve read before. I was interested though because when I was a teen I had a book with the complete works of Poe. I find his works dark but intriguing, which pretty much sums up this book.

Legacy of a Corrupted Mind is a bit too long and although it’s good and kept my interest, I think the length may put off a lot of readers. I found it amazing that so many writers wrote the different parts and it was difficult to distinguish between them. The way it is set up with many of Poe’s characters invited to dinner is brilliant. And what their absent host puts them through on this neverending night is a fitting tribute to Poe’s works.
