Not bad for 50p...

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

A die-hard Lovecraft fan who appreciates the dramatics of sound effects accompanying a story.


What was most disappointing about H. P. Lovecraft’s story?

The prose was hard to follow in places - I found myself listening to several parts again just to keep up with the story.


How could the performance have been better?

Though the story was read well, the sound effects in the background were distracting and amateurish.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The end section of the audio book gave some insight into Lovecraft's life and his first steps into becoming an author, which was interesting and worth listening to.

Hmm... Not for the diversity sensitive

What did you like best about The Horror at Red Hook? What did you like least?

Nice creepy short story from HPL


If you’ve listened to books by H. P. Lovecraft before, how does this one compare?

I prefer the Cthulu myths ones


Did Jim Donaldson do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

He's got a good voice but it's a little soporific. I liked the background sound effects.


Any additional comments?

It's a touch racist by 21st century standards!
