The narrator, Pundit, embarks on a balloon trip to outer space in the year of 2848 and writes a letter narrating the details of his journey. The name that Poe gives his narrator suggests that he is a pundit, a knower of sublime truth.
Gotta be honest here with you and say that this one is one of these absurd tales. But I didn’t had fun with it and I for the most part enjoyed it.
However the writing style wasn’t that great as you could expect from Edgar Allan Poe aka the king og gothic literature.
When I was reading this tale I just could stop myself from reading this tale in Robert Downey JR voice. It is weird, I know.
For the most part this tale is a dry satirical story. However this tale didn’t interest me so much as I was expecting it would.
For me this tale wasn’t interesting so much and as good as it could be if Edgar Allan Poe did put some extra work into it.
I give this novel 1 / 5
