October's Reading Power Book Club: The Tell-Tale Heart
So to celebrate All Hallows' Eve we’ve turned to the macabre, the gothic and the grotesque; we’ve selected one of America’s finest writers. This month we've chosen Edgar Allen Poe.
Not only that but we’re contorting and distorting the very structure of Reading Power Book Club. For we have selected a short story, The Tell-Tale Heart. Not only can you access the text right here, right now but there is also a free audio version here (right-click and "Save Link As..." to download mp3) and a slightly altered but fabulously creepy animation up there on the right. Although it differs a tiny bit it is worth watching just for the narration from the brilliant James Mason.
So there you are, October’s Reading Power Book Club is The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe. It takes 10 minutes to read, so let’s have lots of comments! We’d love to hear your thoughts!
