Narrator

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The Narrator can hardly speak. Its almost like he whispers.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot?

Wayne June

Any additional comments?

The narrator ruined the experience.

Droll narration.

This narrator has an exotic name and a voice akin to the crunch of dry toast. I was looking forward to listening to this book...I love Lovecraft, however there is more inflection presented within the 10 o'clock news broadcast.
I gave only one star as I couldn't make it even a quarter of the way through due to the narration.
I'm sure it's a wonderful book. I'll have to read it someday.
