The bloody-minded Montresor leads the pompous Fortunato deep into the catacombs, seeking the famed Amontillado wine. Here we have one of Poe’s most terrifying, and most “beloved” tales. Revenge and pomposity commingle beneath the river’s bed, leading to a delightfully sinister conclusion.

It could go either way. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't like it. It was an interesting read for class, but nothing that I ever would have read otherwise. It was more interesting than some of his other writings.
Sure, if I had a friend that loved Poe in general then I would recommend this short.
The performance was pretty spot on in my opinion, very animated. There are some better performances and readings (even dramatizations) on YouTube available for free.
No, of course not. But I did see a funny dramatization and reading on YouTube with the actor that played the dad in the Home Alone movies. It was better than listening to this in my opinion.
Read it if you are a Poe fan, if not then pass.
The element of not really knowing the context of the story. Gives you so much to consider.
