    "I always like to reread some of Poe's stories around Halloween. I first read most of his works in high school and they have stuck with me ever since. Such great writing and he really captures the horror, anxiety, and despair within his stories. "

    "When I was in 5th grade I totally memorized Poe's "The Raven" and every since then I have been struck and stuck on Poe. Everyone should have this volume featuring Stories such as the Tell Tale Heart. If you haven't read it ...what are you waiting for. If you have..time to re read it. Pick this up today."

    "I have read Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-tale Heart" nearly a dozen times, and every time I do I pick up something I did not previously. Each story is written with a great attention to detail, and I always find myself hanging on to every word. "

    "this is a classic short story book. I don't think it fits well with supernatural thriller books, but it's something everyone should read at least once."

    "Imagine that you are working for someone. Working for some one that has something that vexed you. What if the thing that vexed you, drove you into doing something crazy? Mentally crazy, that is if you can stand the pressure. Well, that's what happened to a man in the story of The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. This story is about a man that takes care of / works for an older man. The old man's eye is like a vultures eye, and the eye vexes the other man. The eye drives the other man so crazy that it urges him to attack the old man in the middle of the night. The story takes place in the old man's house. The old man's house is very old and creaky, at least that's how I have pictured it in the last thousand times that I have read this story. The characters are the old man and the man that gets vexed by the old man's eye. The old man has an eye like a vulture, a pale blue eye with a film over it. The other guy is a mad man. He denies it though. The theme is basically horror. It's not exactly scary, it's scary and thrilling. If you like books that are thrilling and sort of scary or sort of give you the spooks; if you like murder stories; if you like stories that are sort of abnormal, then you will want to check out The Tell-Tale Heart."

    "Poe isn't for everyone, but the Tell Tale Heart is a chilling classic that we all read in high school. I like to revisit it around Halloween every year. Something about the weather turning to fall that makes me appreciate the dark, enduring brilliance of Poe's imagination."
