Classic Tales of Terror By H.G Wells, Saki, Edgar Allan Poe, W.W. Jacobs, A.M. Burrage, Robert Stevenson. Reviewed by Maria Garcia

This book has many kinds of stories, all of them are different, but they has something in common.They are horror stories.
Anything was better than this. I couldn't stand their smiles any longer. I had to scream-----or I'd die. The noise was louder, louder, louder! "Enough" I screamed. "I admit it! Tear up the floor! Here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!" The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe.
To me reading horror stories and fantasy pretty much accomplish the same thing by given me more than other kinds of fiction. With fantasy, it is the magic and fantastic creatures and heroism that create the draw, but with horror fiction, there is that element of tension and being on the edge of your seat that puts one in the mindset of not caring about what is going on in y the real world. There is nothing better to me than the well-written horror stories that ratchets up the tension so much that I can't put it down.
There is nothing that I didn't liked about the book. Everything it's just perfect. With other types of fiction a lot of times you can guess how the things will end up, but with horror this is seldom the case.
I know that the things we like reflect our important unmet needs. If we feel bored or if we are going though a boring phase in our life then we are more likely to feel like hearing horror stories. That's what I discovered when i read the story "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Sometimes the main reason behind wanting to hear such stories in the unconscious desire to drove them wrong. Some people don't believe in such stories and like to hear them to find flaws in them. If you are one you should read this book. That's what I discovered when I read "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe.
Curiosity can be the main drive behind wanting are sometimes believed to be based on real life events, some people are curious to know them in detail. That's what I discovered when I read "The Open Window" by Saki.
