It was the eye. The dull, sightless, vulture's eye that shredded his final nerve. But the murder was done so carefully, so perfectly, that only one thing could reveal the whereabouts of the body. B. J. Harrison gives a masterful reading of the famous murder that wouldn't keep quiet. This audiobook was the #3 best-selling audiobook in 2008 at the iTunes Music Store!

I've listned to this story multiple times now. It doesn't get old; BJ is so engrossing. I imagine I can hear his facial expressions through his voice, his emotions are on his sleeve, as it were. Even Poe's ironic humor is portrayed without breaking character("fear of robbers" anyone?). Depending on the narrator this twisted tale can put one to sleep. Not so with BJ-he might pick up on my heartbeat.
Still one of my favorite short story poems by Edgar Allan Poe! If you never read anything else by him read this one!
I've read this story many times. Edgar Allen Poe is my favorite author. What makes this audio book so worth while is the amazing performance by B.J. Harrison. I've seen this story butchered many times by terrible acting but this was just brilliant. I imagine this is just how Poe pictured it as he wrote it.
I love the narrator, BJ Harrison. he makes this story come to life! Thanks to the great narrator!
