Battle does an excellent job using the Cthulhu mythos to explore past and current societal failures, and Murray’s narration brings an extra level of dramatic tension to a classically Lovecraftian Horror tale. Good stuff.
Good and great
Good story well done
Battle channels Lovecraft in this updated tale of terror. The narrator’s tone and voice are a good match and even though he starts off with a bit too much drama he quickly finds his rhythm.
