The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe Audiobook – Peter Clines
I’m usually a follower of the retelling of traditional tales with an unusual spin. Be it Satisfaction, Prejudice and also Zombies or Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century (90’s animation). I considerably appreciate when an author is able to rejuvenate a timeless story.
To be sincere, I only ever check out the Great Illustrated Classics version of Robinson Crusoe. Therefore, I may have missed some information of the original book that would have made it a lot much less boring. The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe Audiobook – Peter Clines Stream. To me it was a survival tale without a great deal of survival yet with a great deal of luck. That’s what I was anticipating this retelling. Crusoe as a monster provides his survival extra trustworthiness. It’s much easier for me to believe that a monster might endure almost 30 years on this island as opposed to a routine mortal man.
The addition of some Lovecraft aspects, primarily Cthulu, additionally gave the story a bit much more taste and even some legitimately terrifying scenes. It also aided to explain why the natives on nearby islands found this certain island to be spiritual ground for their church, rather than one more island to survive on. Clines’ inclusion of mythological aspects actually does aid the total tale to make more sense than the variation of the original that I had read.
Obviously, for me, there were still some monotonous components. This retelling still remains fairly true to the original, so it’s not unusual that there were times when Crusoe’s tale appeared ordinary.

Peter Rawlik is somebody I take into consideration a Beowulf author in a field flooded with Dantes (Neal Stephenson initially offered this distinction in question # 2 of this Slashdot interview). When a Beowulf writer supplies a suggestion, I submit it away for future reference. With these factors in mind I stated, “What the hell. I’m video game.”
While waiting I check out 14 and Rawlik was right. It’s a well written book that should be made right into a movie by Joss Whedon post-haste. Visitors of Lovecraft eZine would certainly discover plenty to love within its pages. So when The Eerie Journeys of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe showed up in my inbox I cleared my routine, loaded up numerous new mixes, and also dove in eagerly.
