    Story
    "Just a Bit of a Warning"

    I had no idea when I bought this that some genius had made the decision to add a background sound every few minutes to the narration. I could just picture some college kid they had paid in burritos in the sound booth, pressing various sound effect buttons and high fiving himself for his totally righteous editing skills.

    But still! It's cheap and you could do worse.

    Story
    "Worth a listen, but not one of Lovecraft's best."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Horror at Red Hook to be better than the print version?

    I feel for any narrator who has to read Lovecraft's wonderful but archaic prose. Jim Donaldson did a great job with it, though! I enjoyed his reading, and appreciated the addition of some musical touches and sound effects of moans and shrieks during dramatic moments. It really made listening to the story a better experience than reading it would have been. I will be looking for other horror works done by Mr. Donaldson.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    From what I've read, this was one of Lovecraft's early works, and I think that shows. The story seemed to go on longer than needed. I thought that HPL's xenophobia was showcased more than usual in this tale, which was off-putting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are some good creepy scenes in the story, which I enjoyed.


    Any additional comments?

    After the end of the story, there is a short piece giving some background on Lovecraft and his influence on modern-day writers. I thought this was nicely done and appreciate the effort to show the significance of HPL's works.
