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.

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.

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.

Don't even bother

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

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.

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.

Bad narrator

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

Horrrrrrrible Narrator

I wanted very badly to like this book, I really did because I absolutely love HP Lovecraft, but this narrator is horrid. He's got like this sing song lilt to his voice that in and of itself is an insult to Lovecraft's work. It is not meant to read anything Lovecraft has written. I would recommend maybe children's books for this narrator.

Not for those unfamiliar with Lovecraft

I should have taken other reviews to heart. The content is there, but for work as deep and mindful as Lovecraft the narrator does jot do the material justice. I would recommend avoiding the omnibus for those who enjoy digesting great reads via audio book, as the narrator is extremely difficult to keep up with and holds not suspense for the reader.

Someone else should have narrated these tales.

Firstly, I love HP Lovecraft, so I'm always going to enjoy his stuff whether I read it myself or someone else is narrating. Secondly, I appreciate the time and effort the narrator put into this work (it's not easy) and all the tidbits of information he added. It was fascinating and pretty damn cool.

However, and I'm genuinely sorry to say this, the narrator is dreadful. Comes across as whiny and the inflection is just off. Enunciates lots of words incorrectly--dude, just say nineteen normally. Over-emphasizes lots of consonants--particularly the letter D for whatever reason--which, after a while, is nothing short of maddening. It was very unprofessional all around and I can't bring myself to listen for more than 15 minutes at a time.

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.
