    My 3 star rating is more for the book itself rather than the collection of short stories within. I thought the order of the stories was a little odd, espectially since "Murder at the Rue Morgue" was placed several stories after "The Mystery of Marie Roget" (aka the sequel to Rue Morgue), and I ended up reading them out of order. As far as the stories: The Gold Bug - Not a fan of the mystery or strangeness presented in this story anyway, so it doesn't help that it didn't age well/ is really kinda s My 3 star rating is more for the book itself rather than the collection of short stories within. I thought the order of the stories was a little odd, espectially since "Murder at the Rue Morgue" was placed several stories after "The Mystery of Marie Roget" (aka the sequel to Rue Morgue), and I ended up reading them out of order. As far as the stories: The Gold Bug - Not a fan of the mystery or strangeness presented in this story anyway, so it doesn't help that it didn't age well/ is really kinda super racist. In fact, the only moment I kind of like where the main characters have to solve a puzzle, is marred by some serious racism that I feel would have been problematic even for the time this story was writen. I was bummed that this is the story that started off the collection. The Oblong Box - Hadn't read this before and ended up seeing the mystery a mile away, but still enjoyable. However, if I remember correctly, it still had a little bit of racism and antisemitism, which was a disappointment since it came after the Gold Bug. The Myster of Marie Roget - Hadn't read this before either, but it's an C. Auguste Dupin story (aka the first detective story and inspiration for Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, etc.). I like it to a certian degree, but I feel like I've read enough subsequent detective stories that are stronger, so this one was kind of eh. Interesting to read, but nothing to write home about. Th Fall of the House of Usher - a solid Poe classic The Murder at the Rue Morgue - the original Auguste Dupin story. I had read this years ago and liked it more this go around (although I still noticed the things that caused me to not like it the first time). It's interesting to read the foundation on which subsequent detective stories were built. The Pit and the Pendulum - I love this story. It's not historically accurate but who cares? The psychological torture/terror conveyed here is exactly what I want when I read a Poe short story so for me this was a strong way to end a collection that was otherwise just okay.
