Written in 1843, “The Tell-Tale Heart” is a dark and eerie tale of a man’s unhealthy obsession that leads him to commit murder. Will his paranoia get him caught?

This is one of Poe's finest and most memorable short stories!
MY REVIEW:

This classic short story was a little disturbing!

The main character is obsessed with his older roommate’s eye, which is blue with a film over it. Cataract, maybe? Or perhaps he is blind in that eye? Despite his assertion that he is not crazy but loves the man and that the man has never done him any wrong, he is determined to kill the man because of this eye. He sneaks into his bedroom at midnight and tries to catch a look at the old man’s “vulture” eye. After a week, he gets up the nerve to do the deed and


Aside from that bit, I liked the story. The police didn’t suspect that anything was amiss, and he would have gotten away with it too were it not for his guilt playing tricks in his mind. It’s too bad that this short story wasn’t a bit longer!

Narrator Michael Pearl is new to me, and he captured the main character’s paranoia!

MY RATING:
3 stars!! It was good, and I enjoyed it.

This book qualifies as:
