Seven H.P. Lovecraft Stories


Read by Phil Chenevert

(4 stars; 171 reviews)

Howard Phillips Lovecraft, better known as H.P. Lovecraft, was an American author of horror, fantasy, poetry and science fiction, especially the subgenre known as weird fiction and many feel he is the acknowledged master of creepy, weird and unsettling stories. These are seven stories by Lovecraft that literally span his career; some being written when he was barely a teenager and one (The Shunned House) only published after he had died. Each story is unique and strange in it's own way but all of them come from the same mind that gave us the Cult of Cthulhu and other wonderful tales that generations now have enjoyed for their strangeness that resonates with our own inner fears. Some of these stories explore the depths of the human mind others the depths of human degradation and creepiness. I won't ruin the suspense by telling you which is which. Enjoy. Note that each story has a source E-link to the text for that story. (Summary by phil chenevert) (3 hr 13 min)

As usual very clear and pleasant to listen to. I look forward to more from this narrator. Thankfully the app I now listen on allows me to see all of a narrators work

Awful

(1 stars)

Awful reading. Is this guy even trying to convey eerie feeling and impending doom, or challenging himself to read as quickly as possible? Up and down and up and down, like a family guy cut scene of a terrible public speaker.. He just changes the pitch of every other random word to sound profound, but it comes off tacky, tasteless and completely unlistenable.

Lovecraft

(4 stars)

Great narration by Phil, especially considering the unbelievable breadth of vocabulary that Lovecraft uses in his stories.

Am I glad I came across this or what.

(5 stars)

The stories are good and the narrator is excellent. The reading was not only clear, but also conveyed mood and atmosphere admirably. 5/5 for sure!

(4.5 stars)

Mad love for Chevenert but I wish he deepened his voice or attempted something more suspenseful. Maybe I'm just too used to him reading the Oz series.

(2 stars)

I have to fimd them again. I am sure they are great but I couldn't get past the reading to the story. Incongruent.

(2 stars)

Lovecraft shod be read in a more deep, gloomy, suspenseful voice. This was unbearable.

Interesting bits of Lovecraftian reality

(4 stars)

These collection of stories show several facets of the immense and supernatural world build by H. P. Lovecraft. I my opinion it is a short sampling of the work of the author and more interesting stories can be seen in other of his books. Concerning the narrator, his reading was good, although, in my opinion, he gave a tone that did not fit in the ominous environment of the tales.
