    "For the love of God, run from this book!!!"

    SonicMovie's contribution to audiobooks is akin to water-boarding's contribution to modern diplomacy. Forget about Britney Spears or Barney being played at deafening volumes for weeks upon end, listen to this little 'gem' once and you'll be begging to confess your darkestest secrets! Take the worst dubbed kung fu flick you've ever seen and imagine it vomiting out of your ipod headphones and turning your brain into quivering, stupified mush. Beside that the book was great!

    "Avoid Purchasing!"

    After purchasing three hundred plus books from audible this is my first unquestionable regret. Combining a great author with an unintelligible narrator is a waste of time and money!

    "unspectacular attempt at Lovecraft tale."

    This audio version of an HP Lovecraft short story does little to impress. Narrator Yancy has a deep gravelly voice but delivers the tale incredibly slowly which feels like an attempt to lengthen the running time by a few minutes. Rather than a slowly unfolding sense of dread Yancy evokes boredom and depression. At times I found the tale hard to hear clearly due to what seems like some vague attempts at sound manipulation to make the narrators voice spookier, along with an intrusive background music and effects track. Feverish fans of Lovecraft might give this three stars but the majority of listeners may think two stars is a rather generous review.
