If you're going to have voice actors, use them for the whole of their parts. I can't stand them switching. The author should stick to perhaps two voices and narration.
I am distracted by the voices, but I suppose the author could pay more attention to what is actually required for sword work. Of course with bent legs the place you feel it is in your butt, most noticeable the next day on stairs.
Cut the narrator's character voices, give the voice actors the whole of their parts.
It's easy to get lost in the prose- it's a trap of the wordiness. I don't mean lost in the story, but there are essentially too many words to get to the point and I tend to get lost when doing something else and listening to this book. It's got good monster pay out when you are just listening. There are certainly some antiquated ideas but it's also a collection which could be modified into various b horror movies and there would probably be enough gore for the modern audience. I'm glad I listened to it- it touches on some of the lore of lovecraft stories. Could the narrator be better? Maybe so. Still there's a nice creepy quality to the narrator's style. I think I'd recommend it to listeners who are interested in concentrating solely on the audiobook. But this probably won't carry you away effortlessly.
