About the Story
"MISERY is manifold. The wretchedness of earth is multiform. Overreaching the wide horizon as the rainbow, its hues are as various as the hues of that arch". (Edgar Allan Poe, 'Berenice', 1835)

The Breakfast Review
In any case, "Evermore" has no intention of taking itself very seriously. The afore-mentioned loquaciousness is part of the joke; a big part of the fun is in identifying the Poe stories being parodied; and the situations originally described by Poe are played for laughs, the drama overblown to the point of the ridiculous. Does it work? To a certain point. Maybe you don't want too much of it all at once, or the text begins to blur.

This game seems like the author took everyone one of Poe's stories, drew a picture of the ending of it, summarized it in a humorous way, and then built a branching tree of decisions where each branch ends at a different picture/parody.
This was pretty entertaining, but it's tedious to look for more than a half dozen endings. Best for fans of Poe, pastiche, or old fashioned CYOA books.
