    "Exceptional Stories, Wrong Narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    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.
