Pure Genius

If you are an Edgar A. Poe fan, then all of Mr. Robert Poe's books are a must read. This is an excellent novel. The Poe family should be proud.

Theo's treasures

I wish I could meet Mr. Poe. He sounds really hot, and I like his book. I wonder if he has a cat. Is it black? Maybe it's name is Theo just like me! I have some similar characteristics like Poe's witch in the Black Cat. I like to dance around naked too! Mr Poe, I wanna meet you.

A modern day thriller

This book, although based upon a fairly old story, is exciting even now. I'm not easily disturbed, but this book had me on the edge. I had to read it through a couple of times to get the full effect, because after the first time so many things near the beginning of the story made sense. I would reccomend this book to anyone that likes thrillers and definately to a Poe fan.

a must read

i loved this book. it kept me wondering if what society thought was right, or if it was all a massive cover-up of some sort. i felt very into it as i heard the conversations. some of the themes in the book may not be appropriate (to some people) for a 14 year old like myself, but i would still recommend it to anyone that wants a fast reader that they could finish in a week.

Edgar Allen Poe himself would be proud.

When I found out that a relative of the great Edgar Allen Poe was writing books, I just had to read them. The Black Cat is a wonderful story of how horrible humans can be. You can't help but want to help Julie and try to help her. Ultimately this book shows how inhuman humans can be and that you should always listen to others before passing judgement.
