More Interesting Than Horror, but Read Very Well

(4 stars)

I rather enjoyed the story, but found it a little more ponderous and less actually creepy than some other Lovecraft, which left me a touch disappointed, but the fantastic reading more than made up for it. Still a great story, just not my favourite Lovecraft.

Lovecraft never disappoints reader was okay

(4 stars)

I I'm pretty sure back when I read the book in high school the name was pronounced and spelled "Whatley" not "Waitley" despite the annoying mispronunciation I enjoyed the narration just checked the text. oops! my bad good job Mark as always

Fascinatinf story and great reading

(5 stars)

Love the level of performance here. Classy and subtle but still exciting and with lots of accents to differentiate people. The story is interesting and exciting and has lots of info to keep me going in my HPL investigations.

Great short horror story

(5 stars)

Lovecraft fashion through and through. A great little tale of mystery and mysticism with imagery that chills and makes one feel as if walking in the shaking books of the story's charcters.

The ending gets me every time I've read this. "It looked more like the father than he did" makes you really think about the whole mess that the book built up to.
