Seven H.P. Lovecraft Stories

Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.2 stars; 281 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

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!

I absolutely love these short stories and I especially love this particular reader. His voice is very soothing and I often use these stories to help me sleep at night. (ironically)

A Great Introduction to H.P. Lovecraft

(5 stars)

The Stories: I really enjoyed this small collection of horror stories. I particularly liked The Beast in the Cave, The Alchemist, and The Shunned House. The Narration: In my opinion, this reader has the perfect voice for bringing H.P. Lovecraft's tales to life. There were a few mispronounced words, but other than that it was perfect.

great listen

(4 stars)

I liked the narrators voice. it was unusual to me at first, but the ups and downs of the way he read seemed to fit the stories he told.

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.

(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.

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