Publisher's Summary

Professor Angell was an expert on ancient languages. When a young man brought a grotesque carving to his office that contained a strain of hieroglyphics that were unreadable to all, it started the strangest and most horrific research of his life.

The statue would lead the professor and is great-nephew to discover the awful truth of the cult of Cthulhu and what its existence meant for the future of mankind.

    "Good story, not very good narrator"

    The narrator has a Brittish accent, but that's not even the beginning of the problem: As the book progresses, the inflections in his voice become less and less in tune with the text. By chapter 2 it seems like the narrator is simply reading and speaking autonomously. Although the narrator is not necessarily monotone throughout, it is clear by this point that he generally unimmersed with the text.

    Always preview the narrator before you buy!!

    "Hard to Follow"

    This was my first introduction to Lovecraft. It was a reading assignment for an English Lit class in college. The narrator was fine but the way Lovecraft writes, no dialog and a lot of made up words or archaic obsolete words, this book is hard to follow without actually looking at the words on the page. Even looking at the words it was hard for me to wrap my head around. I have had several people tell me this is not the best Lovecraft story, and I might enjoy Lovecraft better if I had been reading a different book of his.
    So my suggestion is that if you've never read Lovecraft before and want to check him out to see what his fans are saying is his best story and start with that.

    "Bug's Review"

    The story was good, but the way the narrator spoke was confusing at times. Keep in mind this is not a good book to read while tired or otherwise distracted. If you like Lovecraftian horror then this is worth hearing through.

    "Fair"

    Dry read narrated with fairness. A true 'cult' classic and a fandom must if you've never read it.

    "It's vintage macabre.the voice actor fit very well"

    It's vintage macabre.the voice actor fit very well.
    even though it's supposed to be horror there is a certain warning message in it.
