The Terrible Old Man | [H. P. Lovecraft]

The Terrible Old Man

In a sleepy, coastal, New England town, three men decide to rob and if need be torture a very old sea captain to learn where he keeps his wealth - a man who is so old no one ever remembers him being young; a man who pays for his purchases not with dollars, but with ancient gold and silver coins minted over two centuries ago; a man who speaks to spirits in bottles; a man who may not be a man at all.

    "Avoid Purchasing!"

    After purchasing three hundred plus books from audible this is my first unquestionable regret. Combining a great author with an unintelligible narrator is a waste of time and money!

    "Bad special effects"

    The narration has been layered with an echo effect that makes the performance virtually unintelligible.

    "Terrible Old Man is a good story & Yancy makes it"

    This story is very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. K. Anderson Yancy is an AWEsome narrator & his voice is absolutely perfect for my favorite genre. The rest of the Sonic Performers are corny. Mr. Yancy stands alone, basking within his own perfection.
