I didn't seem to learn my lesson. Do not listen to Edgar Allan Poe audiobook when you think you are alone! It will give you arrhythmia. For sure.
Yeah, I did that (again) during lunch break, it was quite, so I took my phone, put my earphones and listen to this, The Cask of Amontadillo (I read The Sherlockian a while ago and it was mention by ACD character, hence 'curious'). Closed my eyes... and listened.
The story itself was rather straight point. Fortunato did something that insult Montressor. Montressor vow for revenge. But Poe wrote it so meticulously and so tautly, so the tense was built up little by little, get higher everytime they descend the wine vault... until....
"For the love of God, Montresor!"
For the love of God, indeed.
Nemo me impune lacessit ~ No one attacks me with impunity
NB. I got the audiobook from Librivox, and it was outstanding, with sound fx and all. Love it.
