Reviews

Wow. Just... wow.


(3 stars)

Excellent job of creating an otherworldly feel. There are several things I didn't enjoy but I did make it to the end.

Simply Great


(5 stars)

This book is truly a work of art. The main character had me hooked I had to know what was going to happen next. The story is beautiful, full of love, horror, fantasy, and action. May get slow at parts but trust me just keep listening it will be worth it.

.. and lo, in verity it doth go on a bit.


(2.5 stars)

top marks for the narrator in that he persisted with this rambling monologue. why the archaic language redolent of the King James Bible I have no idea it is just very very annoying. the same themes are repeated ad nauseam by this author. this work would benefit from being reduced in size by about 95% and then it might just make a possible decent science fiction short story. if you suffer from Insomnia then this book will help you no end getting off to dreamland.

classic cosmic horror/fantasy/sf


(5 stars)

Difficult but rewarding. This was written in the very early 20th century --it takes the archaism of Victorian and Edwardian fantasy farther than even Dunsany and Eddison. This work was written pre-WWI, so old fashioned attitudes are not surprising

Impressive


(4.5 stars)

Amazing postapocalyptic 1912 novel in the style and wording of the time. Warning. If you're a PC fanatic and easily offended about the way women were thought of during that era do not listen. Mark did a fantastic job of reading.

Get on with it......


(2.5 stars)

bits of adventure ... mostly convoluted and more than a tad boring. Excellent reader of course.


(3 stars)

I know it's an old book but the language makes it hard to follow


(3 stars)

Story was predictable, and language was tedious. World was imaginative.
