Audible Editor Reviews

The talents of the Atlantic Radio Theatre Company are on full display in this performance of a startling tale of scientific exploration gone awry. By way of a radio interview, Professor Dyer publicly details for the first time the horrors of what actually happened on his expedition to Antarctica in At the Mountains of Madness. This dramatization of the classic H. P. Lovecraft tale is composed of pitch-perfect narration from the radio host, Miss Ashton, whose encouraging voice is able to coax all of the grisly events out of the shaky professor to the graduate student, Danforth, whose enthusiastic and almost naive delivery makes his fate all the more tragic.

performance was great

Lovecrafts writing style is hard to follow sometimes because he discribes all the scary stuff with third person conversations, but this dramatazation sets a wonderful stage and was really fun to listen to. If you like Lovecraft you will like this story, the recording was fantastic, complete with sound FX and multiple actors.

Classic Lovecraft

This was a good short story in the traditional style of Lovecraft. Full of suspense and looming danger. It again covers the ancient ones and man's interaction with them. Well acted, and entertaining, and still even a little bit scary to listen to in the dark.
