    Really Nice

    First of all, this is HP Lovecraft, so if he is not your bag, spend your dollars elsewhere. This compilation contains some of his best, most classic stories. Hearing them read aloud, really allows you to appreciate his carefully crafted language. My only complaint with the book, is that it is difficult to find particular stories if you want to re-listen.

    Worth the listen

    Yes the narrator is difficult to deal with, but try the read speed at X.75 and it gives it more of a dark feel. Standard X1.0 speed was practically unbearable. The explanation between short stories are enjoyable and help give context to many of the writings. I make many long drives and find this to be an enjoyable way to pass the time. Worth the read despite the narrator. He is not talent-less despite some reviews, just not one of the greats you will long to listen to.

    Good, but quite dry

    This is not an easy listen, and not just because it is so long. It is very eloquent, to the point of it almost being annoying.
    Some of the best writing this country has ever produced, but you must be patient with it.

    Great narrator, sounds like I imagined H.P. Lovecraft actually spoke.

    Great collection and narration

    Perfect for anyone interested in Lovecraft's works. Some others have commented objection to the quality of the narration; I think it is just fine.

    Terrible Narration of good stories

    Finn J.D. John’s compilation of these stories and bits of H.P. Lovecraft’s life are excellent. Really helps to get a better idea of the man who wrote the stories or where he was physically and mentally at the time, I really will get the physical copies of these. The narration performance is awful. EVERY story is read with a lilting mysticism like the undertakers manager from the WWF. I picked up the John Carter of Mars omnibus he did, excellent execution... well okay execution (insert gif of Rabbi Tuck gesturing at the merry men) These two audiobooks though.... no thanks.

    After having gone this far, every time I hit play, I swear I can imagine the narrator dressed like a fortune telling putting on a show for the next sucker.

    Go to YouTube

    I will have to say that I'm struggling to get through this. The narrator is God awful. yes he can read, but he has no range as a vocal actor. if you are interested in the background to each of Lovecrafts writings than this may be for you,but if not I would say just go look to YouTube.

    Bad narrator

    I like Lovecraft but thought the narrator was terrible. Couldn’t stand listening more than half an hour

    This guys voice is terrible to listen too. He also goes on and on before getting to the stories.

    Good content. Narrator has a weird accent.

    The narrator's way of speaking--especially when doing voices during his "performance"--is odd. He has some kind of northeastern U.S. accent, I guess. It's distracting. Aside from that, this book is good. It is as advertised.

    Great stories but the reader’s voice is painful.

    I don’t recommend this because the reader’s voice is so distractingly pretentious. I hate myself for being bothered by it. But I can’t see myself finishing this.

    Okayish narrator

    I would love to listen the works of Lovecraft narrated by Morgan Freeman for example. The narrator was good, but I for myself have to concentrate on the story as the narrator did not success in binding the listener to the story. Maybe its because english is not my mother tongue.
