A technical mess

I got this for the amazingly low price of 66 cents. Wasn't worth it. There has been absolutely no audio processing done to this audiobook. Some chapters are far too loud, but most of them are so quiet that even with my tablet or my external Bluetooth speaker cranked all the way to maximum it's still kind of hard to make out. And some chapters bounce back and forth between nearly inaudible and ear shatteringly loud from one sentence to the next. Whoever produce this audiobook needed to, at bare minimum, at least normalize the volume. Functionally, I would go so far as to call this audiobook broken.

As for the narrator, I don't want to bash him too hard. He has a pleasant enough speaking voice, but as alluded to above, half the time you can't hear what he's saying. When you can, the problem is that he doesn't have any emotive range. This is going to sound snarky but I don't mean it that way - he's got a fantastic voice for instructional videos or documentaries, or something of the like. But these stories are the foundation of cosmic horror that the genre has been built upon over the past 80 years or so, and the narrator reads them without any trace of fear, or dread, or any other emotion that puts you into the story. It's a dry, matter-of-fact reading that does no favors to the text itself.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this compilation at any price.

Edit: there are multiple readers. Some, the audio mix is so low that even with my tablet at max volume, it's barely audible (no pun intended). Other readers have better audio levels, but are reading this iconic horror with the same nonchalant attitude one might read microwave instructions. The end result remains the same - this is an extremely low production value presentation, unworthy of the text itself. Remains a strong recommendation to avoid.

Rough

I am interested in this title but this audiobook is not well done. The volume is so low that it is nearly inaudible in some places. I was able to make it through the first story. The other stories I gave up on. I was not able to hear and was tired of replaying every few seconds to figure out what was said. This is not one to listen to in the car.

oh my god

it's hp lovecraft. it's good writing.
what isn't good is the voice actors.
stuttering, misreading, not reading with passion. its bland performance straight through.
volume is either really fucking low or aaaaall the way up.
just a messy performance. steer clear.

Amazing Bargin

Great collection of Lovecraft's works. This is the most expansive collection I've found for an unimaginably cheap price (at the time of writing costing 66 cents).

Narrator is horrible

I like Lovecraft but the narrator for this is horrible! Very little inflection in his voice and it makes it very difficult to get through. I am usually very stubborn and will complete something like this just to say I finished it. This was so bad I couldn’t even finish the first story. Sucked. Would love to be able to return this but I can’t. I am glad it was cheap.

Not so good of a listen

Good stories, but the way that it sounds is not so. It feels like they didn’t listen to it or edit it before releasing it.

Corrupted Download

While these are great stories and I’m sure the narrator did a fine job, the files themselves are corrupt. I made three attempts to download before I decided to give up.

Book no go, find a different one.

English Much?

Overall, Quite good. However, one of the narrators seems to have great difficulty in pronouncing certain words. These mispronunciations I at first attributed to the somewhat archaic language of the early 1900s used in many of the stories. This turned out not to be the case as many far older words were lacking the verbal mangling. Overall these mispronunciations were not too terrible. They did on occasion detract from the enjoyment of the stories.

I believe having someone akin to a "proof reader" would be of benefit in preventing such from occurring in other audiobooks.
