Lovecraft’s magnificent prose brings sheer dread to life in this deeper exploration of the history of the Old Ones.
Still, I find most of his shorter fiction better as it always feels much denser in content.
|Descriptive, eloquent, and positively disturbing prose||Feels a little bit bloated, and the pace’s a crawl|
|Fascinating setting of ancient evils in Antarctica||If you’ve read Lovecraft before, you know half of the plot already|
|Cool, eerie atmosphere|
|Gives more insight into the history of the Old Ones than any other Lovecraft’s books|
