A great get for Lovecraft fans
H.P. Lovecraft has a style like no other and this chronological telling of his later works is great and definitive. At this point Lovecraft's style is completely realized. The author gives great insights in between stories that explain Lovecraft's life at the time of writing these works
I wish that the first volume in this series was available, and hopefully it will be some day. The performance seems well rehearsed and well spoken, which is impressive when it comes to Lovecraft's love of difficult to pronounce made up language. There are one or two times in which the reader stumbles over his words and the voice he adopts when narrating the dialog of a country folk or other less worldly characters can be construed as vaguely offensive, but that shouldn't stop you from picking this book up.
Awesome collection, well curated and narrated
I love Lovecraft's work, especially the later stories from after he started making his stories less like ghost tales and more like really terrifying science fiction. I really enjoyed this collection, both for the commentary and for the narration. I think the narrator sounds great.
And I'm not just saying that because I know the narrator (which, full disclosure, I do, he's an acquaintance) -- if I didn't like it, I wouldn't comment on it at all.
But don't take my word for it, you can listen to the audio sample and see for yourself.
