    Hailed by literary critics as the inventor of modern-day horror, H. P. Lovecraft is the cultivating force behind such modern writers as Robert Bloch, Wes Craven and Stephen King. The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One is a collection of his best-known tales narrated for the first time by Wayne June and includes both "The Dunwich Horror" (published in the summer of 1926) and "The Call of Cthulhu" (published in the summer of 1928).

    Edward says: "Excellent Series for those who love Lovecraft..."

    What made the experience of listening to The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One the most enjoyable?

    Two Words. One Name. Wayne June. This guy could read the phone book and make it scary.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One?

    The Climax of The Dunwhich Horror really stands out, the whole story builds and builds and the dread grows and grows. It's amazing.


    What about Wayne June’s performance did you like?

    Everything. Just re-read the top, that's it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not originally, but once Mr. June's voice started in I just could not turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    For any fans of H.P. Lovecraft this entire series is a must have.

  • Zombie Spaceship Wasteland: A Book by Patton Oswalt

    Story
    (461)

    Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

    Arlette says: "It's deep. Deal with it."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. Patton Oswalt is one of the Best working stand-ups out there right now.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zombie Spaceship Wasteland?

    A History of America from 1988 to 1996 As Recounted by the Three Types of Comedians I Opened for While Working Clubs on the Road. It's Simple amazing


    Which character – as performed by Patton Oswalt – was your favorite?

    Rodney.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Packed with Laugh Out Loud chapters and the memoir-stlye chapters are very enjoyable for those (like me) who like to get a look into the head of a comedian.


    Any additional comments?

    I hate to repeat myself but Patton Oswalt is one of the Best Working Stand-Ups out there right now. This is A MUST HAVE for any comedy nerd. I would also recommend picking up the Paperback print copy as there is some additional material.

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    Where does John Dies at the End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one ranks at the top. Well written and a superb performance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of John Dies at the End?

    Where to begin? was it the Meat Monster? the Roach Man? or the scene where it turns into a video game? Answer..D) All of the above.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The openning scene and the ending. The story moves at a good pace, but the openning really sets up what's to come incredibly and the ending is great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Full of honest chuckles and some great laugh out moments are delivered along with some truly scary scenes rich with terror, dread, and creepiness.


    Any additional comments?

    John Dies at the End is the kind of book that there should be more of. It is a perfect blend of HP Lovecraft creepiness and madness with the witty and absurdity of Douglas Adams.
