FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers.
The King in Yellow is a collection of short stories - mysterious, macabre, and endearing by turns. The work has been linked to H. P. Lovecraft, with the titular entity forming a part of the extended Cthulhu mythos.
The first three stories are darkly suspenseful and linked by the mysterious Yellow Sign and the malevolent King in Yellow. These will please Lovecraft fans most of all, and the ghost stories will not disappoint. Also included in this collection are a war story and a strange romance, both of which intrigue and entertain.

This book has a strong start then just tapers off.
The book follows several people that tend to go crazy after reading The King in Yellow. I honestly could finish the book, as it just kinda dragged on.
The narrated isn't bad, but at times you can hear noise in the background, I could even hear someone talking in the background... Or maybe I'm going mad
Narrator was good; tries to do the wispy, almost scared voice thing and pulls it off. First few stories are excellent, later ones are not connected to the King In Yellow. would recommend skipping them.
