Publisher's Summary

I am forced into speech because men of science have refused to follow my advice without knowing why. It is altogether against my will that I tell my reasons for opposing this contemplated invasion of the Antarctic - with its vast fossil-hunt and its wholesale boring and melting of the ancient ice-cap - and I am the more reluctant because my warning may be in vain. Doubt of the real facts, as I must reveal them, is inevitable; yet if I suppressed what will seem extravagant and incredible there would be nothing left. The hitherto withheld photographs, both ordinary and aƫrial, will count in my favour; for they are damnably vivid and graphic. Still, they will be doubted because of the great lengths to which clever fakery can be carried. The ink drawings, of course, will be jeered at as obvious impostures; notwithstanding a strangeness of technique which art experts ought to remark and puzzle over.

Creepy classic

H.P. Lovecraft is one of the fathers of modern horror for a reason. Listening to this was a treat, it reminded me of Alien and The Thing, among other titles. I don't know if they directly took inspiration from this but Lovecraft's Elder Gods have a long reach. The narrator emoted well, growing more strained and tense the further into the mountains the characters delved. If you like Bloodborne, Alone in the Dark, The Thing, Alien, or just psychological horror in general I would highly recommend this, it's a great entry point for Lovecraftian horror.

I received a free copy of this at my request but it had no influence on my review.

Classic Cthulhu myth is at its best!

Lovecraft created the Cthulhu mythos and all the insanity that goes with it. This classic tale takes you to the Antarctic and leaves numerous corpses, many questions and most of your sanity by the wayside. The author as always is magnificent in his obtuseness and the narrator does well conveying the manic nature that the character telling the tale Develops as it goes on. Can't wait for more to make it to this format. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
