    Description

    Welcome to Arkham County. Population: 749,824. But that number’s dropping all of the time.... 

    Lying northeast of Massachusetts, just south of Hell, Arkham County is somewhere you find yourself, not somewhere you ever mean to go. Once you do find it though, you'd better get used to living there, as you may be there for however long you have left to live. 

    From within the walls of Arkham’s asylum, reclusive writer Randolph Carter tells the story of orphan Violet Flintock, who arrives in Arkham County in search of her own history only to be instantly greeted by the bloody realities of this small town, whose foundations are built from the lore and mythology of HP Lovecraft.

    In this Audible Original production, Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada, Fortitude) leads a cast to introduce you to the horrific, bizarre and just plain weird world of Arkham County. This HP Lovecraft-inspired tale will delight fans and those unfamiliar with his wild, surreal and terrifying horror stories.

    Get rid of the background noise!

    Why are you drowning out the amazing Stanley Tucci!!?? I really enjoyed the story and the performers. I was completely distracted by the overwhelming background noise. I had a hard time hearing the performers at some points and had to keep backtracking.

    Utterly Boring

    Audible recommended this book based on my enjoyment of David Wong's John Dies at the End series. While I did not expect this book to be as creative and Wong's work, I was not ready for this level of the bland dialog and the poor story telling found throughout this story. Even Stanley Tucci, an absolute national treasure, cannot rescue this tale from mundanity. I have an issue with the performance as a whole, but not any particular voice actor does a bad job. It's more that the production should have gone another direction. Listening to this audio is like reading a book with every other line missing, listening to a phone conversation with bad reception, or watching a movie with your TV screen off. I only understand part of the story because I don't know which characters are doing what at which times. There's only so much that can be done to build a scene using sound effects and most of the effects do not convey whatever it is they are supposed to be conveying. This production desperately needs a narrator, if only to announce the character names and the setting in which they find themselves. I made it 4 hours in before I had to call it quits.

    This is such a well done performance and a great story. I hope they make another one because I couldn’t get enough of this!

    Comes across as an obviously British young adult radio play

    The dialogue is both heavily British-faking-American (“why do you think I’m stood here? I’m stood right here because...”) and very young. It’s written with a heavy dose of tween naivete and a peppering of formulaic Lovecraft mythos.

    The heavy solipsism puts the cosmic horror into a distant nosebleed seat, while the characters ponder how unfair it is to be a reanimated dead person, or the offspring of an elder god. It makes all of the dialogue about the situations cringey, predictable, boring, and unthreatening. A scooby-doo mystery with some college intro-to-writing plot lines. This script literally belongs in a spiral notebook under a teenagers bed. A British teenager.

    Stanley Tucci is the only saving grace. His dialogue is actually funny, and allows a good actor to deliver wit that actually is amusing in context. At least it feels that way next to the pallid lines of every other character limply delivered into their own belly buttons.

    A mediocre experience overall. Good for doing the dishes, or maybe yard work.

    fun listen. performances outshine story.

    not a bad show. sounds exactly like that. a show. overproduced.
    excellent performances. the story had an odd habit of building a story, or even just anticipation of some action. nope. gonna small talk. felt like I was pulling teeth. there was not a corner that revealed any satisfying culmination of the time and voice talents involved. 3.5 overall for me.

    Arkham County

    It was a very good story. The full sound production was, at times, distracting and overbearing. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it was just a story being read.

    Weird and not in a good way

    Characters are American by the speech patterns and accents, yet references are made to metric measures... horrible waste of time. Perhaps the story would be better on stage for the visual cues and stories, but doesn’t make a good read/audible.

    Excellent

    I always love the books with multiple narrator's and sound effects. My only criticism would be that it was hard to hear what was being said through the effects and music.

    I enjoyed it so much

    I enjoyed it so much and fearing I missed something because of my drifting away from speaker, I would go back and listen to whole chapters again and again. I even ended up listen from start to finish 2x!!!

    what the heck

    I dont know what I just listened to. Sound design was a bit over the top. By a bit I mean way way way over. Stanely Tucci stole the show when his character appeared. Sans his character I would have turned this off.
