Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend it for Lovecraft fans, of which I am one. It has many of the same elements.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lighthouse Keeper?
Near the end of the book when the author describes the Walkers of the Eternal Night and the effects upon the humans that they were just trying to communicate with
What does Steven Cree bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
His Scottish accent! I had not listened to a sample because I couldn't get it to play on my phone, so it was a bit of a surprise, though a pleasant and appropriate one.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The way the lighthouse keepers throughout the book understood their vulnerabilities and looked out for each other. The appreciation Alec had for his friend who had saved his life and the lengths he was willing to sacrifice himself to repay that.
Any additional comments?
The ending was a bit abrupt and I am not certain I understood it. It was meant to let the reader decide what happened, I suppose, but I prefer concrete endings.

Very well written novel, harkening back to early horror fiction. I see the comparison to Lovecraft and think it's well founded. I would also compare it to Twilight Zone and Fredrick Brown. The excellent narration only enhances the story. The ending is very abrupt, but I liked that. This is not a blood & guts horror story. For this one, you need a vivid imagination.

I don't normally write reviews but I felt I had to comment on this book. It was BORING!! The first quarter of the book was fine and painted a promising picture and then it was followed by repetitive incidents. Same things over and over and over........ Bored!! Descriptive detail was good but it literally lost the plot! Sorry!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the narration and found myself gripped by the story wanting to hear more. Sadly dissapointed by the ending and thought I must be missing a second book. I agree with David from The Wirral about rushing it out to market. It felt like the author also got bored and decided to "put his pen down"
