First Lovecraft tale I've ever read
This is the first Lovecraft tale I've ever read and I can understand why he is considered a master of the horror genre. The slow buildup and atmosphere in this tale really heighten the tension and fear levels. I'm usually not a lover of horror, but as Halloween is getting closer I feel like I will be reading more of Lovecraft's work in the coming weeks.
While I think the Yancy's narration was actually really good, the audio could use a bit of editing. The pops and hisses from his excellent pronunciation hurt my ears after a bit and became a bit distracting. Occasionally, the background sounds overwhelmed the narration and there were multiple occasions that I felt the music/sounds were more Halloween store than horror story. However, I really enjoyed the narration and I look forward to listening to more.

A Horror Classic Marred by Audio Production Issues
The book material is great; creepy, ominous, and cerebral. If you've ever read Lovecraft before (chances are you've already read this story), then you already know that this story deserves all the attention it receives as new readers discover it for the first time.
The narration for this title was OK. It was more like an old radio drama, but its use of effects made it seem a little campier than the material warrants. The main narrator did a fine job, but he spoke a little too softly for my taste--I had to crank up the volume to be able to hear him properly.
