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!!

Dull

Maybe this was exciting 100 years ago but it just seemed really dull. Some of the the dialog was racist as well.

loved how it was written, and spoken.

I forgot I was listening to a book and just got so caught up I thought this just someone telling me about something that happened. couldnt stop listening.

Mandatory headline (Optional)

Narrator was good but sometimes used different wording than the actual book. Story great but best experience without spoilers.

Pleasant reading voice, needs editing though

Lovecraft's story holds up as well as ever, but while I enjoyed the narrator's voice I was distracted by a number of mispronunciations and occasional instances of completely-wrong words. (It's possible the narrator was reading from an imperfect text, but if so, it should have been apparent from context that some of the words were wrong.) It happened just often enough to be distracting, which is a pity.

Wish there was more...

I loved this story. Very creepy and well written. I just wish there was more of it. I want to know more about the cult and the creature. Maybe that’s part of the fun though, the mystery of it all.

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.
