The Fall of the House of Usher

Do you think the narrator is a reliable witness to the events he describes? Explain.

I need some help with my homework. Sorry I'm new to this site so I don't know what to put here.

The unnamed narrator is probably Poe's most sane protagonist. He lacks the sociopathic grandiose of Poe's other protagonists. He is reliable only as far as he is an outsider and his relation to Usher. While Usher and his house fall a part, the narrator stays objective enough to give us an account of what happens.
