In a rundown farmhouse near isolated, rural Dunwich, a bizarre family conjures and nurtures an evil entity from another realm, with the purpose of destroying the world and delivering it to ancient gods to rule, and only an aged university librarian can stop them. The Dunwich Horror was first published in 1929 in Weird Tales. (Summary by Mark Nelson)

    Couldn’t follow the story most of the time and thought, in some places, the narrator sounded like Winnie the Pooh.

    Pretty good Lovecraft novelette, although the dark atmosphere of inbreeding and fear becomes silly once the monster are actually revealed. The narrator is perfect for the story, gets the decadent and decaying American 1920s rural atmosphere just right.

    It’s a good listen, but it’s definitely a different style for me. Not bad at all

  • Eric C.

    Good narrator but the story was only OK. Alright for something short to listen to.

  • Hans H.

    Very well narrated! HP Lovecraft is often hard to read, let alone say out loud. Loved the book

  • Raye-Raye

    A little dry but ya just can’t beat some good ol’ Lovecraft

    This is my fourth of Lovecraft’s stories, and I love the third person perspective. The narrator was fine, though sometimes his character voices ran together and sounded the same. Other than that though it was great! Would definitely recommend for a Lovecraft fan.

    The narration kept breaking up on this book for the first several chapters. The book itself was really good and I enjoyed it but the quality of the narration took a lot of the enjoyment out of it.

  • Robert B.

    One of my favorite Lovecraft stories, capturing the essence of his horror genre. Narrator did ok, clear and understandable, tried to distinguish character voices, didn’t go over the top on his delivery.

    This was great! The narrator was spectacular and even did spooky sound effects. I think anyone could get a kick out of this old-fashion sci-fi!

  • Anders F.

    First time listening to Lovecraft. Loved it. And the narrator did a brilliant job of voicing the characters

  • Craig S.

    WOW! Lovecraft at his best!

  • Craig T

    the story was ok but I found it hard to listen to the narration

  • Matt D

    Narrator did a good job. Classic Lovecraft story.

  • Shirley M

    Very scary. It is horrible. Think before hearing it!

  • lydia d

    thoroughly enjoyed it (listening in the dark, made it that much better) wish it had been longer listening..

  • Matthías Leó G

    The story is simply awesome and is well narrated too.

  • John R

    Not my favorite Lovecraft, but a good addition to his universe. Very quick listen, good for an in between book, while waiting for the next download credit.

  • Gaynor C

    As an old Science Fiction it's relative to the time written. Always interesting to listen to early sci fi minds.
