Do you know book "Sense and Sensitive" (wrote Jane Austen)? Is it a well known book in English speaking countries? I live in CZ and I must admit I dont know it at all. If you know it, what is it about?

So for those who come from UK it is well known book? I mean very well known? Like every child (or man) knows it?

Re:
  • The Fall of the House of Usher and other stories – Edgar Allan Poe

It is perhaps one of the first horror stories in literature. Read also The Telltale Heart and Murders in the Rue Morgue. Poe was a master of the genre.

Well, I have read all the books I have written down, which means I have also read The Fall of the House of Usher and other stories – Edgar Allan Poe. I love the book! It is really cool and I think I'll read it in Czech language too.
And how about the other books? do you or someone else know them? I wish to know that, because if they are well know, then I'll write an essay about the books! I need to know it!
Thanks.

If you like Poe's horror tales, try HP Lovecraft- a master of the genre. ;-)
