Publisher's Summary

This is one of Lovecraft's most beautifully written and frightening stories. It is written from the perspective of a surveyor, who, while surveying a rural area that is to be flooded near the town of Arkham, comes across a mysterious, abandoned farmstead, which is completely devoid of all life. At the center of the farmstead is an old well. The site fills him with an unnatural sense of dread, and, as it turns out, there is good reason for that feeling.

Great story and very good reader

What did you love best about The Color Out of Space?

Very dark and spooky.

What other book might you compare The Color Out of Space to and why?

Anything by Poe

What about Christopher Strong’s performance did you like?

Deep voice - perfect for this story of thing. Didn't notice any kind of "breath" thing like another reviewer did. To each his own, I guess.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Horror from Space

Any additional comments?

Looking for more from this reader but haven't seen much of my type of books. Hope he does more Lovecraft soon.

WARNING! Bad narrator.....

I couldn't get through ten minutes of what is probably a great book. The narrator takes loud, almost wheezing deep breaths every couple of sentences. It made ME feel suffocated. Click the 'Sample' button before you buy just to make sure you can handle the narrator....
