Audible Editor Reviews

The British broadcaster and respected crime writer Edgar Lustgarten is a perfect fit for this quartet of tales from master of the macabre Edgar Allan Poe. Selections include the opium-drenched "Ligeia", the horrific "Berenice", the Gothic classic "The Tell-Tale Heart", and the famed tale of premature burial "The Cask of Amontillado". Lustgarten's timing and cadence skillfully evoke the dark, decrepit mood, which is heightened by the eerie music and well-timed sound effects. Although this is an older recording, the sound quality is excellent, and this is a highly enjoyable way to experience these classic tales.

Publisher's Summary

Edgar Allen Poe had a dark and morbid imagination. His capacity for suspense and shock has never been rivaled. He had a unique art of creating nameless fear, fear that makes the reader ache for, and yet shrink from explanation. Fear that alternately torments and numbs the mind, the fear that comes from the dark of nowhere, the fear that will never go away. Here are four of the greatest stories by the master of the macabre, told, with sparing but telling dramatic effects, by Edgar Lustgarten in coolly terrifying style.

You can find the following Poe tales in this program: "The Tell-Tale Heart", "The Cask of Amontillado", "Ligea", and "Berenice".
