Not for me.

I only made it through a few minutes, the added effects and the enunciation made it unbearable. I'm sorry! :/

you have to let this one wash over you like a dream and envision it through a dream-like mind. unfortunately. probably not for everyone. some unusual vocal sound effects in places but they are somewhat appropriate for the book and it's subject matter and they add to the feel of it all. i love Jason mills! one of the best readers on librivox, AND Lord DUNSANY!!!??? WELL.... he is the absolute master of higher speculative, pseudo mythological, free-fantasy-dream-fiction! Jason Mills sir,,,please please give us more!!! thank u librivox for having so many of Dunsany's books in audio format. what's a gift to the world. PEOPLE SHOULD LEARN TO DREAM LIKE THIS AGAIN, FOR THERE ARE NEW WORLDS HERE.... Allan David Carroll

A great presentation of the book loved the effects used for MĀNA-YOOD-SUSHĀĪ. The book itself was interesting you can really see how much Lovecraft borrowed from it.

I was warned

fans of Lord Dunsany warned me that his first published work isn't his best, but I am a stubborn woman. I enjoyed it enough though and now I am more curious about the world created by the talented Irishman. so off to the next book.

Well narrated. The stories had my sketchbook burning with possible ideas. It’s just the sort of story I enjoy most. Only flaw is how little fleshed out it was. Very barebones. No meat or potatoes. Just to the point. Other than that, it’s great.

A difficult style of writing but think the reader did his best and loved to hear British English. But that is purely selfish of me!

Brilliant. A religious text for a fantasy world that brings it to life more than any epic ever could.

Excellent translation. Love the old names of the Gods.
