Wayne June is a Storyteller. Not a narrator.

Mr Wayne June is a Storyteller. Not a narrator. Thats what separates his narrations from every other voice on the market. His voice mixed with Lovecrafts writing is a match that was obviously meant to be.
If Lovecraft knew that wayne june was the narrator, he would not have died...he would have kept on living just so he can hear his stories told by June.

I own the entire series....But this is the only one i bought on audible, so i will have to rate all of them in one....I suggest you get these books, but be fore warned. ...wayne junes voice pulls you in, and it literally scares the hell out of me. When he wants you to feel sympathy you will. But, when he wants you to be afraid, you will be. Very Afraid.

If you're a horror buff, you will love the way the narrator handles Lovecraft's descriptive style of writing. The characters do not all sound alike, (like in a lot of audio books)..

Out of all the audiobooks i own, and i own about 60, the only ones i go back to are the ones that are narrated my wayne june.
You have to get his Poe books too......another fav of mine .

Architecture is Scary

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I've read or listened to quite a bit of Lovecraft lately and this has to be the worst. Apparently architecture is just terrifying back in first half of the last century. And the narrator was horrible. Constant pauses mid-sentence that don't belong and a deep monotone voice that almost always put me to sleep. There are a lot of other narrators of Lovecraft that weave a much better tale and keep you listening. This guy is not one of them.


How could the performance have been better?

As mentioned above, there is no need to pause mid sentence to take a drag off your cigarette.
