    "A great get for Lovecraft fans"
    Would you listen to H.P. Lovecraft, The Complete Omnibus, Volume II: 1927-1935 again? Why?

    H.P. Lovecraft has a style like no other and this chronological telling of his later works is great and definitive. At this point Lovecraft's style is completely realized. The author gives great insights in between stories that explain Lovecraft's life at the time of writing these works


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that the first volume in this series was available, and hopefully it will be some day. The performance seems well rehearsed and well spoken, which is impressive when it comes to Lovecraft's love of difficult to pronounce made up language. There are one or two times in which the reader stumbles over his words and the voice he adopts when narrating the dialog of a country folk or other less worldly characters can be construed as vaguely offensive, but that shouldn't stop you from picking this book up.

    "Fantastic narration!"

    Really outstanding narration, with thoughtful historical background and high production values. Great because most stories are relatively short, but many of them are connected in unexpected ways.

    "Absolutely LOVED it!!"

    I have previously read most if not all of H.P. Lovecraft's works. Therefore I was familiar with the stories but WOW. In audiobook form they're just fantastic. The narration is awesome. This is simply a terrific product.

    "Awesome collection, well curated and narrated"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Lovecraft's work, especially the later stories from after he started making his stories less like ghost tales and more like really terrifying science fiction. I really enjoyed this collection, both for the commentary and for the narration. I think the narrator sounds great.

    And I'm not just saying that because I know the narrator (which, full disclosure, I do, he's an acquaintance) -- if I didn't like it, I wouldn't comment on it at all.

    But don't take my word for it, you can listen to the audio sample and see for yourself.

    "excellent narrator"
    Where does H.P. Lovecraft, The Complete Omnibus, Volume II: 1927-1935 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The narrator understands the text well and can convey emotions effectively. Listening can be pretty immersive. Strongly recommend for Lovecraft fans.

    "Superb stories, terrific narration"

    I really love the narration. It was very well done! The stories themselves are the ultimate Lovecraft collection. This and the other volume are among the few things I listen to over and over. Great material, wonderfully presented.

    "Stories are great, but the audiobook is difficult to navigate"

    No table of contents?? Navigating is impossible. This is especially critical for such a large omnibus. Lovecraft has some great stories but some are just tedious. And if you want to listen to something specific again, you're out of luck. The only way is to go through each chapter and listen for the title.

    Story
    "A tangle of tentacles, wrapped round a slimy cone"

    The title is, of course, a reference to just two of the many horrors to be found in this spine-tingling volume of nasties ( listen to the Shadow out of Time and At the Mountains of Madness to find out more). I love HPL's later work far more than his earlier stuff, which was influenced far too much by Edgar Allen Poe and Lord Dunsany (neither of whom I care for much). This volume, which only includes works written by Lovecraft alone, published under his own name (rather than ghost written) includes much of his Cthulhu Mythos stuff (save for pre-1927 writings like Call of Cthulhu and Dagon), plus non-mythos sci-fi horror tales such as Colour out of Space. On the whole, this makes for a brilliantly noxious, blubbery, tentacle-rich horror collection which should keep me trembling behind the sofa for months - or at least the 27 hours run time.

    That being said, there were several omissions that made me wish volume 1 was available, so I could enjoy such shivery classics as From Beyond, Re-animator and the Call of Cthulhu and also learn more about this great writer . The way in which the entire book (including biographical notes between stories) is arranged in chronological order allows the listener a fascinating look at the way in which Lovecraft's style refined and developed over time, against the background of his personal life,and it's a shame I can't experience this with his earlier work.

    Because the book includes novels/novellas as well as short stories, the bookmarking system becomes absolutely essential, both to mark individual chapters and to name individual stories (as well as mark the biographical bits). That way, one can keep tags on which HPL works they got already, as well as see if the longer stories are worth the time it takes to read them. I'd say, it's worth staying the course, because the narration is first class. I thought I'd find the longer sections (Charles Dexter Ward for example) boring (I've only heard Lovecraft in a monotone before, with predictable results). This narrator, however,really brought Lovecraft's work to life, creating individual accents and personalities for each character, and knowing just when to feed emphasis into the spooky/adrenaline charged scenes. His female voices aren't too bad, either.

    One idea - it would really help if a contents page was included at the start of compilations like this, so the reader could bookmark sections more easily. Just a thought - and the only reason I didn't give 5 stars across the board.
