classic horror, unfortunately with much prejudice

It's a mystery which opens one's eye to a greater mythos; much as how the narrator was gradually made aware of the great conspiracy and cosmic threat that his late relative had found. Unfortunately, Lovecraft's prejudice is fully displayed by his villainizations of the cult as having been exclusively comprised of non-white, non-christian, and generally "uncivilized" peoples. If you are able to endure such bigotry in its brief paragraphs, this story is quite fearful and a must-read for horror fans. it serves as a good prelude to the later stories in the Cthulhu mythos.

Great Read.

This was my first introduction to the work of H.P. Lovecraft and it truly led up to all it's expectation.

Can't stop re-listening to this story!

I've known about Cthulhu for most of my life, mostly through pop references and playing roleplaying games, but had never read any of the books. The best part of this book is the academic storytelling perspective and pronunciation of those weird words. Still hasn't caused any nightmares though...

Classic early horror

I have recently started to listen to the Lovecraft stories having heard a lot about them. They are gripping and vivid and unnerving. He is however a product of his era having passed away relatively young in the 1930s. The terms he uses for people of colour and different nationality and religion to his own are not what the modern reader or listener would be used to. Once you have looked past this the stories shine through as menacing pieces of weirdness and horror.
