Publisher's Summary

A random murder in a public park. An artist wracked by fantastical and haunting dreams. A police inspector confronting the depraved rites of a voodoo cult. Intrepid sailors pitted against a diabolical monstrosity risen from the bottom of the sea. And one man, doomed to understand that such things foretell madness and the end of mankind.

An interesting and well adapted short story

My first H. P. Lovecraft story. Well adapted and written. Will likely try another in the future.

A Rightful Classic

This is a radio play presentation of one of the most famous stories of the occult ever written. Lovecraft's story is imaginitive, in-depth, and disturbing. The pacing is a littlle off, but a Great Job. 4 stars out of 5

absolutely amazing!

this was thoroughly enjoyable. the acting was incredibly well done and immersive, worth the 6 dollars. This is a full cast production so there are many people doing the acting. It tells the tale with gusto, and with such wit and pacing that i could see in my minds eye exactly what was happening. It uses sound effects appropriately and in a way that dont detract from the story. All in all, this is the best way to experience this story to me which, when i originally read by the author was good, but a very dry read none the less. I cannot recommend this enough.

A classic!

Another wonderful performance by Dark Mysteries! H. P. Lovecraft never gets old. Some of the vocabulary is a bit crass to our modern senses, but if you know anything about Lovecraft and the times he was alive in, it makes perfect sense and shouldn't put you off from this piece.

Very enjoyable!

The performance on behalf of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society was phenomenal. The book itself was also amazing, another excellent piece of literature by H.P. Lovecraft.

A Fantastic Story for the Imagination

I love this book! The narration is theatrical and professional (the first audiobook I heard in such a format, FYI). Aside from its incredible presentation, the story itself is a timeless classic! Horror/ mystery/ thriller.... it’s short enough to keep interest and doesn’t drag at any point. It keeps you on edge - captivated. I highly recommend this! Listen to one of the most notable books of HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. I will be reading the others, for sure!

Mesmerising !

The voice is on point, it feels like what Lovecraft would have done ! From a French guy perspective, it was really clear and I didn't had any problem to understand it even with my quite limited vocabulary.
