    can understand why this one is not popular

    Sigh. Interesting as an exposition of logic and reason, but VERY verbose. I can understand why this one is not one of Poe’s popular works.
    I appreciate Shale’s narration of this story.

    Rustling of papers spoils this

    Decent enough reading by a talented voice actor, but unbelievably there is a rustling of papers towards the end! The story seems over-complex to me, and without a definite resolution.
