Classic

I found the storytelling to be over complicated, long winded and repetitive when describing objects, aesthetics and environments and was able to anticipate most endings.
The narrator was ok but when he did voices for some characters it was almost impossible to understand or just plain ear torture.
I don't regret the time I took to listen to this story though as the lore of Cthulhu and the necronomicon was what I wanted to learn about but the style of story telling is vastly changed since Lovecraft's time.

Illustrated?

The description says "Illustrated" but there was no pdf or anything (as there are with The Great Courses series) containing illustrations that I could locate to download. The narration is good, as of course are the stories, but I wanted illustrations to go with the audio. Misleading description.
