    Wayne June is perfect for Lovecraft's tales

    What did you love best about The Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft, Volume 3?

    I liked hearing a collection of some of Lovecraft's best tales in one volume. Wayne June's voice is perfect for the brooding atmosphere of Lovecraft's tales. I have heard other tales ruined by the narrator. Not here though.

    Have you listened to any of Wayne June’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to several volumes of Lovecraft's work read by Wayne June and by others. By far, Mr. June is the best of them. I have not heard him in any other writings but would be interested to do so.

    Good Listen

    This is my first venture into H.P. Lovecraft. I really like the narrator's voices, which add to the vibe set by the stories. The only issue I see people having is the choppy rhythm moments, which are few and far between.

    Purely for completion

    This volume is a collection of HPL's relatively weaker/more unhinged (?) works, and if not for Wayne June's stellar performance and amazing Fx I could probably not finish it. Still, if you're a completionist like I am, you should probably get it.

    Great collection of spooky Lovecraft tales

    I very much enjoyed this audiobook. Low voice was hard to understand at firsr., but I quickly got used to the gruff tone which really added a fresh level of forboding to the stories.

    Great Tales, some of my favorites, well told!

    Wayne June's voice is perfect for Lovecraft. He truly excels when given the weird, the wild, and the bizarre and if there's a writer who supplied more of those qualities in his work per word than Howard Phillips Lovecraft, June should read that too!
    A match made in R'Yleth for fans of weIrd fiction.

    Great stories, sadly racist

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    As a sincere fan of Lovecraft, I always approach his work with a measure of regret. His works show a brilliant imagination and a captivating style, marred by a constant undertone of 19th century racist psuedo-science. While this can be set aside in many of his stories, some of his most overtly racist tales are collected here.

    Have you listened to any of Wayne June’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Wayne June is wonderful with Lovecraft's work, to the point where I have to consciously give other (perfectly good) readers a chance. He is very good at conveying the sense of unease that permeates even the most innocent of Lovecraft's sentences.

    Wayne June + Lovecraft = Perfection

    Lovecraft's fantastical writings are improved only by Wayne Junes perfect voice and performance! get all of his works read by this man as no other performer gives the material the slow ponderance required to feel the horror of these stories
