    "Yes"

    Fantastic stories, a great insight into lovecraft's creatures. Creepy and intense, images are carved in my brain that will never go away.

    Story
    "One more for my baby...."
    Would you try another book written by Neil Gaiman and Ellen Datlow (Editor) or narrated by Bernard Clark?

    Yep


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good mix of HPL inspired stories, all an hour-ish long so great for a commute. Some better than others but good fun. Got to the monsters without the pages of vague waffle about architecture and bas-reliefs that the great man was so fond of.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a read, as with most short story collections, a chapter listing would be great rather than just numbers.

    "Great romp through a Lovecraftian haunted world"

    Very enjoyable collection of stories. Narator's accents varied from chilling to almost comical in places

    "Fun read"

    Had a good time with this one, quite a few good stories in here, but as usual with anthologies theres a few that sneak in that arent so great (werewolf vs cthulhu pls). Worth a listen!

    Story
    "The ones that were good were really good!!!"

    Most of the stories are really good. Skip Blackest from pole to pole and the stand out story for me was Red goad black goat, it was really scary in my opinion; I wish it was a full length novel.

    "Brilliant and diverse"

    A great collection of stories; some short and creepy, some long and many-layered; sunk deep within the mythos. Fellow Lovecraft fans will enjoy it.

    Story
    "Its out there... you just have to find it"
    What disappointed you about Lovecraft's Monsters?

    The sometimes lack of substance to the stories. A few were good but the vast majority were not. They didn't have the real meat to it like many of the off shoots of Lovecrafts stories do.


    Has Lovecraft's Monsters turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I am always looking and *listening for great Lovecraftian Cthulu Mythos stories. I have found some here and there. In this one the Neil Gaiman story was great, so were a few others yet some left me hoping the story would end soon as they were dry as the Sahara.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was about Lovecraftian critters, that is its only true redeeming quality.

    "A Unique and Fun Listen"

    I enjoyed the majority of the stories; however, a few did not meet my liking. More of a personal opinion than an assessment of the work. I would not recommend it for a long car ride, as you may start checking your mirrors for the Elder Gods and their underlings. If the car in front of you looks like it has inverted angles, it may be time for a change up.

    "The best stories are the short ones"

    This anthology contains stories ranging in length from 15 minutes to a couple of hours. Sadly, the longer the story is in this collection, the less terrifying and interesting to continue it is.

    There are a couple of examples, but the longest stories are not worth the time or the payoff.

    "Good stories not many endings"

    I think that the editor pulled together a good grouping of stories that fit nicely into the Lovecraft storyline. However, many of the stories just end. I understand leaving some things to the imagination of the reader but a lot of the stories just leave you hanging with a feeling that they are unfinished. Because of this and the way they stories are pressed together by the reader sometimes you are not even aware that they have moved on to the next story.

    "Fabulous Introduction to Lovecraft"

    Great stories, beautifully curated by Ellen Datlow and Neil Gaiman, with a compelling and mesmerizing performance by Bernard Clark, who is a vocal chameleon.

    "Confusing to listen to..."

    This is confusing to listen to and the narrator's impression of a female voice is awful. It's sounds like he's making a joke out of it....
