The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follet. I know it is a long book, but very enjoyable for a summer reading.

I hope you like it!

You're right Jupath about the atmosphere of Poe's books. Poe, himself suffered a lot in his life, especially after his wife's death, and that affected his writings. I think he was a character that was ahead of his time, and thus very few understood him.
