Pluto...

The Black Cat - Edgar Allan Poe

I will say this for Mr. Poe, he knows how to piss me off! The story was absolutely vile & despicable & I never want to read anything like it again! The only redeeming part was the ending & for that alone and that only I give it 2 stars especially considering I found an inconsistency...

In one paragraph it states "The whole house is blazing." "...My entire worldy wealth was swallowed up, and I resigned myself thenceforward to despair." Then on the next page it says he brought his new cat "home" to his wife. So if his house burnt down what home did he go to??

 

(show spoiler)

unless I just missed something in my rush to get through with this fkd-up story.
