Description

Professor Angell was an expert on ancient languages. When a young man brought a grotesque carving to his office that contained a strain of hieroglyphics that were unreadable to all, it started the strangest and most horrific research of his life.

The statue would lead the professor and is great-nephew to discover the awful truth of the cult of Cthulhu and what its existence meant for the future of mankind.

Interesting and Creative

I much admiration for Cosmic Horror stories and listening to the original story that popularized the genre was very interesting. Though I'd get a bit lost in some sections of the story, it was still fun

Good story, not very good narrator

The narrator has a Brittish accent, but that's not even the beginning of the problem: As the book progresses, the inflections in his voice become less and less in tune with the text. By chapter 2 it seems like the narrator is simply reading and speaking autonomously. Although the narrator is not necessarily monotone throughout, it is clear by this point that he generally unimmersed with the text.

Always preview the narrator before you buy!!

Still the Best Version

It can be a bit jarring when the narrator pronounces an otherwise innocuous word incredibly differently than the American English pronunciation that I'm used to. Beyond that, this is a great recording of a great story.

A prototype horor

Taking into account, when this was written, the author had to be very imaginative. Really well, food for imagination this is.

Great narration and great story to start with

Was interested / invested throughout the entire story. Great start for Lovecraft stories and other horror.

Mandatory headline (Optional)

Narrator was good but sometimes used different wording than the actual book. Story great but best experience without spoilers.

Pleasant reading voice, needs editing though

Lovecraft's story holds up as well as ever, but while I enjoyed the narrator's voice I was distracted by a number of mispronunciations and occasional instances of completely-wrong words. (It's possible the narrator was reading from an imperfect text, but if so, it should have been apparent from context that some of the words were wrong.) It happened just often enough to be distracting, which is a pity.

Wish there was more...

I loved this story. Very creepy and well written. I just wish there was more of it. I want to know more about the cult and the creature. Maybe that’s part of the fun though, the mystery of it all.
