Summary

A meteorite from cosmic space falls to earth on a backwoods Massachusetts farm. The space rock possesses peculiar qualities and mystifies even the brightest university scientists. But it soon becomes clear that this is no ordinary meteor, as its otherworldly influence unleashes a creeping wave of despair, death, and decay into the land and its inhabitants.

Brilliantly Done.

This is a really well done dramatisation and not a simple reading of the text, done into speech by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society (www.hplhs.org). It's extremely well done and fully captures the depth and existential horror of Lovecraft's original tale. We are mere playthings of a universe that is completely indifferent to the fate of individual humanity and humanity in general. Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

a great short story interpretation was fantastic

the performance of this book was ideal. Usually HP Lovecraft is a hard read for the most part, however I found myself in thralled in the tale of this short story.
