Publisher's Summary

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!

THE VULTURE EYE

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.

Happy Halloween!!

Could they not hear it?

This short story was one of the few to catch my attention as a kid in school.

Soon after i fell in love with the rest of the writers works, but this one has always held a spot for me special.

The narration completes this fully, and compliments the story perfectly. Picking up at the right points and building the suspense

I loved the voice acting. I got chills as the man started to become unhinged. Such an exciting story.

Great Teaching Tool!

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!

Best Poe Story!

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 never given 5 stars before this

What about B. J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

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.
