This is an incredible tale of fantasy by one of the greatest writers of the genre.Some think this is one of Lovecraft's greatest novels. Others think it is completelyincomprehensible. It is certainly a very strange book since the entire story takesplace in a fabulous world created in the mind of a dreamer, Randolph Carter, and inhabited by weird and awesome creatures. There are cats who fly to the moon, named and unnamable monsters, gigantic flying creatures and a quest to find Kadath, a fortress where the gods live and play. The book is a veritable tour de force of horror and imagination that only the genius of Lovecraft could create.

It wasn’t particularly enjoyable.
Dunsany, of course, but Lovecraft admitted his influence on this story.
It was less of a narration, and more of a dictation, with little emotion. He mispronounces nearly every person, place or thing in the Cthulhu Mythos, consistently, which became increasingly annoying; one minute of internet searching would have located him a pronunciation guide which would have at least nominally improved his performance, which he barely seemed to care about.
More of a reading I suffered through.
Please, don't let this man mangle any further Lovecraft stories.
