"The Poe Shadow" Book Review

This book is best for Poe-lovers and people who likes mystery, thrill, and history.

Personally, I really like the story but it's boring at the beginning that's why it took me a long time for me to finish it. You wanna know how many days, month, and years until I finished it? Well, it took me at least 1-2 years xD
If it wasn't for our reader's notebook, I won't be able to finish it.

Since I don't want to spoil you guys, I'll just say that in the middle of the book, it'll get more interesting. Sometimes I would smile or laugh while reading it and my friends would be like "Why are you laughing?" or "What's wrong with you?" with a weird face. 

My favorite characters are Bonjour(Yes that's a name) and the Baron Dupin <3
She's a very independent, stoic, intelligent, and strong woman.

As for the Baron , he's very charming for me xDD
I just love him and his personality <3

I really don't like the main character that much. Quentin Clark can I say this....
obsessed with Poe and his death.

I like the way how Matthew Pearl wrote the book. It's very vivid and you can somehow have a clear picture of the events in your mind.

If you're going to read this book, I recommend that you have a dictionary besides you because there might be words that you don't know the meaning. I learned a lot of words from this book. hehe =)) 

BTW, In the website of Matthew Pearl, you can see/read the secret chapters of the Poe Shadow.
If you have already started reading the book, it's best if you can reread the chapter before the secret chapter so you can recall what happened.

That's all~
Till next time :3
