5.0 out of 5 stars The Tell-Tale Heart By The Weirdo Edgar Allan Poe, March 9, 2001
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.
