It should be tossed into the Bog!!

I rarely get the chance to say this but this is a truly dismal attempt at producing an audiobook. Mr Yancy lacks the talent as a reader and one gets the feeling he's attempting to cover up his inadequacy by drowning it with the most annoying sound effects and music. Poor Mr. Lovecraft will be rolling in his grave over this one!!

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!

painful to listen to. please avoid

Would you try another book from H. P. Lovecraft and/or K. Anderson Yancy?

From Lovecraft, yes. From Yancy, NO!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Dunno...couldn't really hear it over the 500 instruments and sound effects blasting in my ears.

Would you be willing to try another one of K. Anderson Yancy’s performances?

Absolutely not, not if they are anything like this one.

Any additional comments?

K Anderson Yancy is actually a pretty decent reader, from what I could hear; it's a shame, therefore, that he's so addicted to blaring music and unconnected sound effects. At times, the music and sounds entirely drowned out what he was reading. Try to imagine listening to a story in the middle of a train station full of people and incoming trains and you will have some idea what it was like straining to hear this man over his own (he directs, produces, AND edits this nightmare) sound effects. The f***ing sounds and music even blared over the credits, for God's sake. Do your ears a favor and give this
