Lovecraft: The Essential Audio Edition Volume I includes 12 classic H.P. Lovecraft short stories all with audio to follow along as you read. A must have for all the Lovecraft fans.
Stories included in this edition include: The Alchemist, The Beast in the Cave, Beyond the Wall of Sleep, The Cats of Ulthar, Celephais, The Crawling Chaos, Dagon, The Doom That Came to Sarnath, Ex Oblivione, Herbert West, Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family, and Memory.
Fabulous and Free
For anyone who enjoys Lovecraft but gets bogged down reading the flowery and antiquated language, this is perfect! The reader is fluent but watching the words is like reading it yourself. I highly recommend this book! AND IT'S FREE!!! How good is that! It' s like a great (but scary) birthday present.
Great Writing, Bad Reading
The public domain “readings” that accompany the “Audio Edition” of this book are rife with mispronounciations. One must endure at least five such transgressions in the first page of the Alchemist alone. The book still gets 2 stars, as Lovecraft is as enjoyable as he has ever been; but the lack of effort put into the recordings is so distracting as to make the whole experience irritating. Perhaps just *read* the stories yourself (you probably won’t notice your own malprounounced words).
