At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft

32767Product Description:

Published        June 14th 2005    in paperback

Long acknowledged as a master of nightmarish visions, H. P. Lovecraft established the genuineness and dignity of his own pioneering fiction in 1931 with his quintessential work of supernatural horror, At the Mountains of Madness. The deliberately told and increasingly chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition’s uncanny discoveries — and their encounter with untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization — is a milestone of macabre literature.

Review –

This was the first time that I had ever read anything by H.P. Lovecraft and I was really looking forward to it but I was HORRIBLY disappointed.  The author spent more time describing minutia that getting to heart of the story-monsters from long long ago.  I had the audio version and maybe it was the narrator’s voice that i found unpleasant  but I think it was a combination of that and the boring plot that will make me never pick up any H.P. Lovecraft book.

I wish someone would read this and tell me what they think.
