Thirteen terrifying horror stories from the master of the macabre....
Public Domain (P)2015 Red Door Audiobooks
This is an excellent collection of Lovecraft's shorter, yet powerful works. However, Cathy Dobson was not a good choice of narrator for this particular collection. While she does a great job (no stumbling, great voices, etc), she has a British accent. Since Lovecraft is such an icon of American literature, it's just weird to not have an American narrator. More than that, maybe a "generic" British accent would be fine, but this was a very Dickens-sounding accent that takes some of the scariness from the stories. It's not her fault and maybe it's not even a fair thing to think (How many British people suffer through American renditions of Shakespeare?), but it just struck me the entire time.
