Not his best

This was a bit hard to pay attention to. It didn’t grab and hold my interest.

Classic Lovecraft

Lovecraft's mind is a wonder. Can anyone explain it? Napoleon Herriot has the perfect voice and demeanor to deliver the inexplicable.

Good Story, Though Poorly Narrated

I'm a true lover of ghost stories, both the old and the new, but I found this audiobook to fall flat and really kill what could have been an exciting tale. I chalk that up to the British narrator who speaks too quickly, and in a monotone voice.
My recommendation would be to slow his voice down if your media player offers that option.
