    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better paced story... this seems to crawl and ramble nowhere in particular.


    What was most disappointing about Peter Straub’s story?

    That Peter Strab wrote it. I always seem to have a problem with his writing. But a friend told me this was about a character who had dealings with H. P. Lovecraft like beings...and I LOVE H. P. Lovecraft. Thought I'd give Peter one more try. But, I'm still fighting my way through Peter's weird writing style to figure out just what the heck is gong on.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Luke Daniels’s performances?

    The reader was very good. Very dramatic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I do so very much LOVE all the "Eldar Gods" mythos stuff. I dig all the under dog becomes the razor clawed leather winged destroyer of the human race.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps I will give it another try...
