For half a billion years, Cthulhu has lain trapped in R'lyeh, dead but dreaming. But now the stars are right, and the Old One is rising. Instant death for hundreds of millions, insanity for many more. And he hasn't even gotten out of the water yet.
World governments and a desperate and frightened populace scramble to understand, survive, and ultimately fight back against an enemy so powerful his presence could kill every human on Earth without him even noticing we are here.
Buckle up for apocalyptic suspense as you witness what happens when Cthulhu Attacks!

Captivatingly gruesome- a perfect new twist on Lovecratian horror

The story is a fabulous account on what would happen in the world as we know it if Cthulhu were to rise from the depths of his slumber. In a world where Lovecraft has become part of our pop culture, it truly drags you in to the terror and psychotic horror that H.P. originally created. Each event feels perfectly in place, true to our world, even as the gruesome awe of what is happening sends shivers down one's spine.
The narrator's tone is a great vocal choice to sound like "just the facts, ma'am" until we are introduced to the characters. The characters themselves each have their own unique voice and life, and I easily found myself rooting for them or cringing about what was to befall them. The narrative, while dryly given, seems to heighten the eery, the unimaginable, and the bloody gore perfectly.
If you enjoy Lovecraft's stories, you'll love revisiting his world in our present day setting. If you've never read his stories, familiar or not you'll be drawn into this apocalyptic tale which will chill you to the core, reminding all readers how frail we humans are.

Decent story, lackluster performance.

The story is fine. It's the nerve raider that's the problem with this particular production. He is so robotic I had to take a break from listening several times.
You're better off buying an actual hard copy of this.
