Publisher's Summary

Professor Angell was an expert on ancient languages. When a young man brought a grotesque carving to his office that contained a strain of hieroglyphics that were unreadable to all, it started the strangest and most horrific research of his life.

The statue would lead the professor and is great-nephew to discover the awful truth of the cult of Cthulhu and what its existence meant for the future of mankind.

Good story, not very good narrator

The narrator has a Brittish accent, but that's not even the beginning of the problem: As the book progresses, the inflections in his voice become less and less in tune with the text. By chapter 2 it seems like the narrator is simply reading and speaking autonomously. Although the narrator is not necessarily monotone throughout, it is clear by this point that he generally unimmersed with the text.

Always preview the narrator before you buy!!

Still the Best Version

It can be a bit jarring when the narrator pronounces an otherwise innocuous word incredibly differently than the American English pronunciation that I'm used to. Beyond that, this is a great recording of a great story.

Dull

Maybe this was exciting 100 years ago but it just seemed really dull. Some of the the dialog was racist as well.

Short and impactful

This book brings imagination forth and supplies the mind with intrigue. A VERY wonderful listen. I've listened to it three times now and am sure I shall more.

A classic but hard to follow

I might read the book as well. The writing is very confusing due to the time it was written.

Makes me think of Metallica

My only fore-knowledge of this famed tale is that of the Metallica instrumental and all the constant pop cutler references and merchandising of this creature.

Now that I’ve listened to this book twice I can see how powerful it’s influence is and even though it’s quite simple it manages to remain awe inspiring and dreadful.

Solid story.

I just got into lovecraft so I'm probably just feeling the hype, but it's a solid story. Maybe a bit dated, but I think that's to be expected given the books age.
