The Kraken Wakes

The Official Blurb


My Review

Yet again, not an audio book but another radio presentation of a classic story. This drama comes from the pen of John wyndham and was put together by the BBC. It's a creepy story of disaster of an world wide scale and the purveyor of this crime is a Lovcraftian type creature. Something so beyond our understanding and so other-worldly that understanding between us ( humans ) and them/it is just not going to happen.

This full cast drama is a classic example of BBC-well-done audio that draws you into the story and holds you there fully absorbed in the story. It's really a very good story to start with and the scripting, acting and sound effects bring it to life.

If your a fan of H.P. Lovecraft or sci-fi then you should do yourself a favour and take a listen to this audio treat.

Reading 3/3
Production 2/3
Story 3/3
