The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe

The Tell-Tale Heart starts off in a bizarre yet gratifying manner. And as the story progresses, in a brief second, you’ll find yourself turning page after page to get to the end. What do you suppose happens when madness is clobbered by reasoning? You’d have to read this exquisitely gripping story to find out.

This Penguin Classic also contains his other works: The Fall of the House of Usher and The Cask of Amontillado. The Fall of the House of Usher follows the tone and appearance of that of The Tell-Tale Heart; horror fiction at its best. The last story, The Cask of Amontillado was one that I least enjoyed. It felt too knotty and drawn-out to decipher. I’ll keep the book handy if I ever wish to read the story again.
