Halloween Reads: ‘The Tell Tale Heart’

In celebration of Halloween, Gaby and Adam decided to do something a little different for this week’s podcast. Instead of getting to Part 1 of The Glorious Heresies, Gaby reads aloud Edgar Allan Poe‘s The Tell Tale Heart. We chose this classic because it is dark and creepy, but there’s no paranormal activity involved. The Tell Tale Heart is about your mind messing with you. Poe perfectly captures the dread that comes with guilt. Even though there is no monster, no masked murderer, and no creepy doll, Poe portrays a true sense of horror. This episode of Bookstr Reads is meant to remind us why we love horror so much. Be safe tonight, and of course, Happy Halloween!
