No chapters for a collection of short stories?

fantastic performance and stories, but a nightmare to manage with no chapters. it's one giant sound file.

Absolutely Brilliant!

The whole audiobook is wonderfully narrated (Volume 1 as well) and with the intermittent retellings of Lovecraft's life, it works splendidly.

Finn J. D. John has an eerie voice that works wonders with the eldritch tomes and Pnakotic Manuscripts

The best horror stories I have heard.

Excellent stories. Entertained me in my spare time for a whole month. Some of the most twisted and mind bending horror stories I have listened to.

A great get for Lovecraft fans

Would you listen to H.P. Lovecraft, The Complete Omnibus, Volume II: 1927-1935 again? Why?

H.P. Lovecraft has a style like no other and this chronological telling of his later works is great and definitive. At this point Lovecraft's style is completely realized. The author gives great insights in between stories that explain Lovecraft's life at the time of writing these works

Any additional comments?

I wish that the first volume in this series was available, and hopefully it will be some day. The performance seems well rehearsed and well spoken, which is impressive when it comes to Lovecraft's love of difficult to pronounce made up language. There are one or two times in which the reader stumbles over his words and the voice he adopts when narrating the dialog of a country folk or other less worldly characters can be construed as vaguely offensive, but that shouldn't stop you from picking this book up.

Fantastic narration!

Really outstanding narration, with thoughtful historical background and high production values. Great because most stories are relatively short, but many of them are connected in unexpected ways.

Absolutely LOVED it!!

I have previously read most if not all of H.P. Lovecraft's works. Therefore I was familiar with the stories but WOW. In audiobook form they're just fantastic. The narration is awesome. This is simply a terrific product.

Superb stories, terrific narration

I really love the narration. It was very well done! The stories themselves are the ultimate Lovecraft collection. This and the other volume are among the few things I listen to over and over. Great material, wonderfully presented.

Awesome collection, well curated and narrated

Any additional comments?

I love Lovecraft's work, especially the later stories from after he started making his stories less like ghost tales and more like really terrifying science fiction. I really enjoyed this collection, both for the commentary and for the narration. I think the narrator sounds great.

And I'm not just saying that because I know the narrator (which, full disclosure, I do, he's an acquaintance) -- if I didn't like it, I wouldn't comment on it at all.

But don't take my word for it, you can listen to the audio sample and see for yourself.
