Fantastic story, mediocre narrator.
Would you try another book from H. P. Lovecraft and/or Mike Vendetti?
Lovecraft? Yes, absolutely. Vendetti? No.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward?
When Dr. Willett explores the old catacombs.
How could the performance have been better?
The narrator, Mike Vendetti, has a good voice and his delivery is serviceable, but his pronunciation is atrocious. I'm not talking about made-up Lovecraft words like Yog-Sothoth or the different magical incantations, I'm talking regular English words. He cannot, for the life of him, pronounce a number of common, workaday English words and he often stumbles or stutters when delivering even mildly obscure words. This performance sounds like it was done in a single take with no editing.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Probably? It's been eighty or ninety years now and still no one has managed to make a decent Lovecraft movie.
Any additional comments?
Honestly, Wayne June is a superior Lovecraft narrator.
