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!

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
THE BEATING OF HIS HIDEOUS HEART
This has always been my favorite Poe tale. I remember first reading it around the age of eight. It is written with such clarity, that you can't help but feel you are there. This may be the best fifteen minutes you can spend listening.
Harrison does a splendid job. He reads about 40 of these classic tales and none of his voices sound alike.
As an English teacher for over 20 years, I am always looking for ways to bring literature to life for my students. This reading of The Tell-tale Heart really helped my students to visualize and understand the narrator's madness...a most effective teaching tool!
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!
