great story, poor recording

This is one of my favorite stories. Blackwood does a great job describing the numinous and how an encounter with powerful and apathetic forces would be. The narration is good, but the recording has a cyclical softening that is annoying (to me; it's not a huge volume difference).

Adequate story, poor recording

I would recommend this audio book were it not for the poor audio recording. It was obviously not recorded in a professional sound booth because you can hear where the editor cut out the noise floor between words. It's fuzzy, slightly distorted and metallic sounding. I would recommend finding an alternate recording of this book because the story could have been entertaining without the distraction of the poor audio quality.
