[Novel] The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket (Edgar Allan Poe)

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket

Nantucket

The best part of this adventure novel is its horror elements, but unfortunately they are too few and far between to make this otherwise average adventure feel particularly special. It also ends abruptly as though Poe just got tired of writing it.

Positive:
Negative:
Beautiful, flowing old-school prose
The actual adventure, especially the latter half, feels a bit all over the place
Interesting characters
Never really delivers anything particularly memorable
Does a good job at expressing the horror of being stuck on the sea
Abrupt ending
