Editor reviews

Narrator Anthony Donovan gives a magnetic performance that will grab hold of listeners' imaginations in this creepy, spine-tingling tale from Edgar Allan Poe. Egaeus has a disorder that causes him to obsess over objects, and when his beautiful wife, Berenice, gradually weakens from an illness that includes episodes of death-like trances, he begins to focus on her teeth, unable to stop thinking about them. Donovan's smoke-textured voice teases out the sinister tones of this story, and his pacing builds up relentlessly to its horrifying climax.
