    1. mark monday on said:

      great collection.3 stars for The Statement of Randolph Carter a fun, brief shaggy dog story with a pretty famous last line moral of the tale don t go looking for kicks inside of tombs duh 3 stars for The Shunned House Lovecraft at his most Lovecraft displays his strengths and weaknesses equally a whole lot of tell and not a lot of show but the history recounted in the story was really absorbing to me I love History as Horror a whole lot of florid prose and hysterical emotions annoying to some, I [...]

      To save you time, I shall summarize this novelette for you If the subject comes up at a cocktail party, 1 pretend you ve really read it, 2 find cooler cocktail parties But, really, this has some INTENSE spoilers AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS Now with additions to satisfy the whiners Okay, so, there s like TEN scientists, and it doesn t matter what their names are, because none of them have personalities For the purposes of making this exciting, lets say their names are Michael, Eh , Jacob, Ceridw [...]

    3. Michael on said:

      I just don t know what to say about Lovecraft It s all good spooky fun, but he really isn t a good writer He s very repetitive, and tends to fall back on the trick of this is the memoir of stuffy and stilted layman, so that s why it s badly written Also there s way too much ZOMG It was so terrifying to behold that words cannot describe it It was like that indescribable utterly terrifying thing that you are utterly terrified of but can t describe because it s so utterly terrifying Needless to say [...]

    4. J.L. Sutton on said:

      Reading Lovecraft is sometimes a bit frustrating There is only so long that the nameless terror can move the narrative forward Perhaps a longer review to follow which might explain how I can like Lovecraft without really liking his writing.

    5. Mike (the Paladin) on said:

      I ve read several collections of Lovecraft Often I ve read the same story as he was mortal and had to stop writing at his deathough if anyone might have continued on it would probably have been H P Lovecraft or Poe Oddly I suppose I m not a died in the wool horror fan, but something about Lovecraft and his original twist on it which has been copied often since caught my interest I ve since looked up books Lovecraft himself listed as influences and read many of his pulp era peers and successors.L [...]

    6. Lou on said:

      Lovecraft is a writer highly skilled in imagination, intelligence and words This is not for me a scary story but how can I describe it but a cerebal adventure of unknown worlds and creation I find when I read his work I always have to take note of words to look up in a dictionary The story explains about an area that has been discovered and this is the account of the discovery and findings.Excerpt Here sprawled a palaeogean megalopolis compared with which the fabled Atlantis and Lemuria, Commori [...]

      The color out of space.Lovecraft, what can I say that has never been said You tend to babble and overindulge in unnecessary explanation, but I forgive you Aeon is your favorite word and fittingly so Your art will last as long, if not longer At the Mountains of Madness 4The Shunned House 2The Dreams in the Witch House 4The Statement of Randolph Carter 3

    8. Greg on said:

      I really wanted to like this The style of writing I couldn t get over though, and his roundabout way of getting to any of the horror was painful to me than what would befall the characters in these stories That said I did really like the ideas in the stories though, but again the writing killed it for me, especially all the superlatives that would be added before even the smallest detail of horror was given.

    9. Cat on said:

      Can t get enough of those non Euclidean horrors At the Mountain of Madness is about Arctic explorers discovering a huge abandoned alien city The descriptions of the Elder Ones makes me think I could create an realistic illustration, by drawing on starfish, anemones, urchins and clams for body parts Anyhoo, a great story of majestic terror.The Shunned House is basically about a vampiric house, although I must give it props for the good sense to include a flame thrower, even though it didn t work.

      A geologist and his team of scientists went to an expedition at the antarctic and found something evil and sinister there Later, a another group is set to go there on another expedition so the geologist, concerned about their safety, decides to now fully reveal what they know about the place.I have not read much horror novels, and those which I had read failed to horrify me This is not an exception I couldn t even get a single nightmare out of it Lovecraft, however, was very good at his craft wr [...]

    11. Lauren on said:

      H.P Lovecraft s Achilles heel is dialogue, no doubt However, At The Mountains of Madness has none, and therefore is simply page after page of what Lovecraft does best narrate At the Mountains of Madness is easily one of the most terrifying books I ve ever read and that s saying a lot.It starts out rather sluggish, with Dyer s descriptions of what technology is being taken on their expedition and what the weather is like and at what longitudes and lattitudes they re stopping bogging down a bit of [...]

    12. Hava on said:

      Are scary stories effective when they are read in the dark Reading this book certainly made me think so I spent most of my time reading this book s 120 odd pages in broad daylight Not the scariest setting for a scary book Maybe that s why I was kind of dissapointed with it.This being my first H.P Lovecraft venture, I didn t know what to expect The first story, At The Mountains of Madness is of a short novel It deals with a crew of men who go to the Antartic to study the wildnerness They find s [...]

    13. Anna on said:

      This was my first time reading anything by Lovecraft One of the most interesting things about the experience is the realization of the influence of his work from tiny things like Arkham Asylum taking its name from Lovecraft s fictional city of Arkham, to the omnipresence of Lovecraft s character Cthulu as a cultural reference I chose this book because I was curious about the title story, which Guillermo del Toro was at one point planning to adapt into a movie And now having read it, I d like to [...]

    14. Deborah Pickstone on said:

      Erk I can t love the writing style and aliens are, an alien concept to my reading preferences P Read for the geocaching challenge tis not easy to find a book set in Antarctica and obtain it so this novella with the other tales was the best I could do.

    15. Ariadne on said:

      Nope This is the second time I ve tried Lovecraft, I ve given him than a fair shake, and I m going with a solid No Even setting aside the problematic social issues, I just don t like his writing at all Like many writers who hit on a big idea that births a genre or mini genre he can t actually write.Here is the thing he reads like a particularly dry tome written in the Victorian era I look at his contemporaries and the antiquated language and structure seem even tortured I think there were pag [...]

    16. Kathryn on said:

      I had to look up some points after reading this I am very happy that I started with this book instead of jumping into any other of Lovecraft s works The Statement of Randolph Carter was frightening and the ending was almost comical I guess this is part of the authors dream cycle that I plan to read I also loved reading The Shunned House , especially the history of the house Dreams in the Witch House was fascinating and probably the most frightening of the short stories but it was the title story [...]

    17. Katelis Viglas on said:

      Provokes vertiginous terror, as it describes in details the discovery of an alien civilization in the middle of antarctic coldness It continues a tradition of antarctic novels, from Poe s The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nanducket , till Jules Verne s The sphinx of the Ice Fields Even today feeds the conversation about the Hollow Earth Theory I tried to imagine how abysmal the specific alien civilization would be, if existed The uncanny feeling provoked by all those strange archaeological f [...]

    18. Joe on said:

      This book contains the novelette At the Mountains of Madness , a lonely, creepy work where the Shoggoths dwell The accompanying short stories are worthwhile as well.I like Lovecraft s work, but At the Mountains of Madness was sometimes too heavy on the description of the surroundings in too much of a mathematical sense A sketch or two would suffice occasionally.Having said that, Lovecraft is about the slow horror and the reader s imagination, so it doesn t always lend itself to light reading The [...]

    19. Derrick on said:

      At The Mountains of Madness The book was good It wasn t really what I would consider scary although once the book was started it did keep me flipping the pages very quickly I found the scientific writing style was very cold and seemed distant to me It was easy to understand and made it much believable It did make it difficult to be involved Lastly, for a short story it took a long time to build up to the horror part of the story I was nearly halfway through the book and only the last several pa [...]

    20. Charlie Collins on said:

      I would love to see what Lovecraft could do in this modern age where you don t have to worry about censorship or your book being banned There is no doubt the man was a master at suspense and had an imagination that was unrivaled This older style writing is harder to follow for me I have to exert my reading patience, but it is still very entertaining I m sticking to my plan to read short story collections for the Halloween season and this one was a fun one to add to the bunch Anyone have any shor [...]

    21. Andrewf on said:

      I love Lovecraft despite his thinly veiled xenophobia and his political sympathies with fascism I guess just don t take you politics or world view from horror writers

    22. Rubi on said:

      Not the best of Lovecrat s tales Quite boring and little interesting.

    23. Magg on said:

      Una vez llegas al momento en que Lovecraft establece una cosmogon a respecto a los primordiales y su llegada y asentamiento en la tierra, junto con los conflictos que estos mantienen con otras razas de su imaginario y dem s, todo es perfecto A n con todo, es una lectura pesada para ser un libro de 130 p ginas Vengo del Lovecraft del Horror de Dunwich, y sin duda alguna me quedo con ese Lovecraft, el de los relatos cortos En mi opini n, hay partes de este relato en los que se deja llevar y nos cu [...]

    24. Andrea Villar Rios on said:

      3.5En las monta as de la locuraNo puedo dejar de pensar en esos pinguinos gigantes, albinos y ciegos graznando Sin embargo, son demasiadas p ginas para este relato.La ciudad sin nombreLe falt m s emoci n, la premisa era muy buena y la historia interesante.Los gatos de UltharPreciso, va al punto, me gust mucho.

    25. Chad Bearden on said:

      Having read Arthur Machen and Stephen King and Mike Mignola s Hellboy and B.P.R.D sagas, I feel like I know plenty about the cthonic mythology created by H.P Lovecraft But its worth noting that I ve never actually read any actual Lovecraft This slim collection, which contains the well known title story, proves to be a serviceable, if not thorough, introduction to the horror author.I think if there were a primary complaint about this work, it is the stories that were chosen for this slim volume T [...]

    26. Tim on said:

      This collection of four macabre H.P Lovecraft tales is dominated by the title story, a novella about a rather startling discovery in the Antarctic Leading off the collection, At the Mountains of Madness concerns a group of polar explorers boring into rock and ice for scientific samples but discovering relics of the Earth s past best left alone The narrator is not present for the amazing discovery of a group of tentacled things with starfish y and other grotesque aspects When he loses contact wit [...]

    27. Andrea Blythe on said:

      I was not thrilled with At the Mountains of Madness The story of an Antarctic expedition that discovers a madness inducing mountain with horrifying creatures was overwrought I mean, how many pages do you really need to describe the strange and again with the madness inducing architecture The story could have done with some serious cutting of redundant paragraphs But it wasn t entirely without merit and had some moments, where the action moved at enough of a pace to keep me reading The second sto [...]

    28. Bookowl1000 on said:

      At The Mountains of Madness At the beginning of the story there was a lot of technical geological detail I found it very in keeping with the characters because as scientists it is the way that they would describe what they were experiencing As I have studied geology it did help me to picture the landscape, though I can see that for someone who had no idea what those terms meant, it would bog down the story Once they discovered the city I expected it to turn into a slasher fest, and was pleasantl [...]

      On a scientific expedition to Antarctica, a group of scientist stumbled across ancient fossils of a nightmarish and unknown species at the base of a newly discovered mountain range The men took the bizarrely well preserved specimen into their camp, but the next morning all but one of their party were dead Two men took a plane across the mountains to look for him and what they found was horrible than they could have imagined.I really enjoyed this It was a bit of a slowboil but once it got starte [...]
