Nothing other than AMAZING!
I've had this app for a couple of years and I can't never get bored of it. The narrator makes the poem come to life, narrating with such a passion that fills you up with excitement, maybe is me or is just because I love Poe specifically The Raven, but this app is so complete, starting by the narrator (which has an amazing voice) and then the illustrations are dark and obscure and sad, and the background music definitely bring the poem to life, creepy sounds and noises. This app is amazing my only problem is that they just haven't made anymore if these! WE WANT MORE!
My mother used to read Poe's work to me as bedtime stories, and this poem is particularly special to me. I learned to read using this poem. I could recite this poem. Edgar Allan Poe is seared onto my heart. In all of my English classes and Literature class, I have heard his works butchered. However, I have never heard it so beautifully narrated as I have in this app. I don't normally write reviews, but I just had to for this one. Thank you so much for making this.
I hate to be the spoil sport here but there are major flaws in this application IF you consider you're paying top dollar for a digital program with NO features. you can't rewind it you can't change modes after you start, you can't do about anything but listen to it all the way through,each time. You can turn off your computer to start over if you want to hear it from the beginning again. Sure it's a fine piece of reading, but $5 for a short un-referancable readying? What are digital copies for?
