The Tell-Tale HeartThe Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My daughter and I read this for fun.

She thinks it was FUNNY.

That's right. Funny. Not scary, not creepy, not psychologically thrilling, but FUNNY.

Oh, sorry, she said it was a *little* scary.


As for me, I always loved this best of Poe's short stories. In fact, the fact that it is so short, so razor-sharp in scope and paranoid obsession and a good look into the mind of a guilty conscience, always seemed to me a perfect template for all the horrors we'll all have enjoyed since this came out almost 200 years ago.


It's FUNNY, Ya'll.
