Oliver Wyman (an Audie-award winner multiple times and voice for numerous characters on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles television series) performs this entertaining homage to H. P. Lovecraft’s imaginative horrors. The time is early 20th century, a period abundant in drama both real (World War I, the sinking of the Titanic) and imagined (a "tied" World Series, Charlie Chan’s honeymoon). Dr. Stuart Harwell finds himself in a race against Dr. Herbert West, a man he loathes for his vision and the resulting monstrous results from experiments to let the dead walk again. One of the horrid results from Harwell’s own experiments is the discovery of how much he has become exactly like what he most despises.

Two men, a bitter rivalry, and a quarter-century of unspeakable horrors. Herbert West’s crimes against nature are well-known to those familiar with the darkest secrets of science and resurrection. Obsessed with finding a cure for mankind’s oldest malady, death itself, he has experimented upon the living and dead, leaving behind a trail of monsters, mayhem, and madness. But the story of his greatest rival has never been told until now.
Dr. Stuart Hartwell, a colleague and contemporary of West, sets out to destroy him by uncovering the secrets of his terrible experiments, only to become what he initially despised: a reanimator of the dead. For more than twenty years, the two scientists race each other to master the mysteries of life...and unlife. From the grisly battlefields of the Great War to the haunted coasts of Dunwich and Innsmouth, from the halls of fabled Miskatonic University to the sinking of the Titanic, their unholy quests leave their mark upon the world and create monsters of them both.

If you could sum up Reanimators in three words, what would they be?

Creepy good times!

Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

If you are an avid Monster Hunters International fan (as I am) you'll recognize Wyman's voice. I had to laugh whenever he vocalized some of the "mis-born" seven foot tall 15 year-olds since it was the same voice used for Agent Franks.

Don't get me wrong I am a HUGE Wyman fan and he is one of the best voice artists in the industry! This adaptation is no exception! Great job!

Any additional comments?

If you like Lovecraft, you'll love this! This book is crazy fun and I enjoyed Rawlik's re-telling / furtherment of the mythos universe. There was very few actual cuttle-fish-face sightings and just a tad of referencing of the elder ones but everything else is off the hook!

A wonderful romp through Lovecraft country

A story that intertwines several of Lovecraft's more well known stories from the view point of a character in the background but with his own story to tell. Great for Lovecraft aficionados who don't mind seeing old stories told from a different angle.
