From the "Meh" to the "Actually Kind of Scary"
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely! Lovecraft is a seminal work for those who love sci fi/fantasy and has inspired many much-loved modern works. This collection is a good introduction to him and some of the pieces were actually a bit scary.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Tales of H. P. Lovecraft?
When Lovecraft made you really feel how trapped and dead that man lost in the cave was.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Anything involving primates
Any additional comments?
This collection has some of his more obscure works (which are kind of "meh" - they aren't particularly scary and the endings are almost nonsensical even by Lovecraftian standards) and a few that are actually a bit scary when you think about them. There's a bit too much "spooky music" in between stories, but I'd still recommend this short collection. That last hour to 1.5 hours was amazing.
