Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 11 June 2008
I absolutely love "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" I think it's one of the two best stories that Mr Lovecraft wrote (what's the other one?.....well it's on volume 6 ^^)
I had to order volumes 3,4,5 & 6 direct from Audiorealms because this very site you're on couldn't source them even though they were listed as available......

..but moving on.....

Wayne June, who reads all six available volumes, has once again done a magnificent job in bringing this audiobook to creeping, slithering life.
Lovecraft's prose can sometimes be intimidatingly dense and complex but Wayne June paces the readings perfectly, allowing for all the charged emotional gravitas that these stories require.
"Shadow Over Innsmouth" is a tale of earth-shattering psychological horror set in a shunned and decaying coastal fishing town. This story could easily be destroyed by an over-the-top or uncommitted reading but Mr June convincingly conveys the narrator's growing unease and eventual blind panic as he slowly uncovers the grim secret of Innsmouth and pieces together the horrid truth of Obed Marsh's legacy.

"Dagon" is a very short tale but is an extremely relevant and atmospheric companion piece to the main presentation.

These readings from Audiorealms have proved to be exceptional and seriously deserve shelf-space in the home of anyone who appreciates high quality tales of fear, apprehension and (mostly) unseen terrors.
