A great get for Lovecraft fans

Would you listen to H.P. Lovecraft, The Complete Omnibus, Volume II: 1927-1935 again? Why?

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


Any additional comments?

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.

Narration is very bad to awful

The narrators voice lacks the power and range to convey the horror of the stories.

As a fan of Lovecraft, I was very disappointed with the performance. I found myself skipping over whole stories because of the ever changing accent and tempo, mispronounced words especially characters names and it seemed like the narrator was more enthusiastic about the commentary than the stories.

It would have been better had the narrator/biographer/annotator chosen a someone else for the stories
