Odd conversation between odd people

I got this book just because it was narrated by Rick Gregory and I have yet to find one of his books I didn't like. Never heard of Crowley and don't care for Lovecraft because I just couldn't get into him so I knew this book would be a tough one for me. Honestly I don't know what to say about it. I didn't dislike anything about it and it is very unique as it seemed more like a few conversations versus a full story. This really is just one of those books that you should dive into and decide if you love it or hate it. Pretty sure those are the only two responses to this.

Rick as always did a great job.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

The TRUTH about the Mythos!

This is a great little short story that adds some new depth and dimension to the Cthulu mythos, the life of HP Lovecraft, and Aleister Crowley. Though the pair are seperated by time, their meeting is preordained, just not in the way one might expect. Barr nails the characterizations of the authors, and plays the mythos deftly, easily incorporating it into his own version of the way of the Old Ones.

The only downside, and I say this with the knowledge that not all narrators do voices, was that Rick Gregory didn't even attempt an accent. When one of the MAIN players in the tale is from India, and he speaks in a very clearly American accent it takes away from the tale. Even when he said he was raised in a British controlled area I would have accepted him talking like a limey aristocrat. Furthermore, I really could not tell Crowley from Lovecraft when they were speaking. This pulled me right out of the story. I know I am spoiled, but that counts a lot in my eyes. That being said, he does a fine job narrating the story, it just lacked a little more life than I generally expect.

Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

This is a pretty slick cthulu concept, and shoud not be overlooked by any fan of the mythos

Dark Ripple

I’ve really enjoyed all I’ve heard from Brian and Rick so far and whilst their is definitely nothing wrong with this book and it’s definitely worth a read, I just didn’t gel with it like I did the others and found myself a little lost at times.
Rick does another good job, although I’m not sure how I feel about the Indian character just having a regular accent..
This is an honest review of a free review copy.
