The Willows

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Algernon Blackwood

Narrated By: Michael Thomas Robinson

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2011

Duration: 2 hours 23 minutes


A tale of horror in which a pleasant sojourn down the Danube tumbles terrifyingly awry as the veil between this world and an unfathomably weird dimension is inadvertently pierced by an innocent pair of vacationers, "The Willows", arguably Algernon Blackwood's seminal contribution to supernatural literature, has had a lasting influence on the field. No less a personage than H. P. Lovecraft describing it as "...the greatest weird tale ever written." A reading will reveal a clear influence to one familiar with Lovecraft's work. The masterful handling of mystery and suspense that build to a quite satisfyingly unnerving crescendo may be particularly noted by the discerning aficionado of the genre.(Summary by Michael T. Robinson)

    Great read. Narrator was great and story very suspenseful. Eerily satisfying.

  • Mark hughes

    Interesting book. It was a good short listen. It did remind me of other books.

  • Corrie Shiley

    This is a pretty good story. The narrator is a little bland though.
