Keel's The Mothman Prophecies is a book that explores the unknown--human consciousness. The theme of the book is clear from the beginning. Keel is more interested in the root causes of phenomena than the evidence. And the cause, for him, lies somewhere in the mystery of human consciousness and perception. It is a fascinating read. If you like pyschology and parapsychology, this is the pinnacle.
The reader is good but the sound effects are distracting. The prose is antiquated and self-conscious. Smith uses words like "welkin" for sky, which will send you running to your dictionary. The use of a faux antique style isn't unique, but if it isn't done well it can be annoying. (Michael Crichton's Eaters of the Dead is an example of antique prose done well). Smith's stories aren't bad, but they are pale cousins next to the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, who was a true genius. However, until Audible offers some Lovecraft, Zothique is the next best thing. Very little Lovecraft is available in audio format of any kind. This should be amended.
