      "Good Listen"

      This is my first venture into H.P. Lovecraft. I really like the narrator's voices, which add to the vibe set by the stories. The only issue I see people having is the choppy rhythm moments, which are few and far between.

      "Wayne June is perfect for Lovecraft's tales"
      What did you love best about The Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft, Volume 3?

      I liked hearing a collection of some of Lovecraft's best tales in one volume. Wayne June's voice is perfect for the brooding atmosphere of Lovecraft's tales. I have heard other tales ruined by the narrator. Not here though.


      Have you listened to any of Wayne June’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      I have listened to several volumes of Lovecraft's work read by Wayne June and by others. By far, Mr. June is the best of them. I have not heard him in any other writings but would be interested to do so.
