    2. Having read much, if not most, of Lovecraft s stories in my youth, I was captivated by the chilling portrayal of a universe beyond our comprehension It was years later that I realized that Lovecraft s methodology was no scientific than that of alchemists and priests He still used magic and mysticism, he just separated it from conventional and orthodox religions Instead of the benevolent God, creator and Savior with a sacred and glorious destiny for humankind, Lovecraft gave us Cthulhu and malef [...]

    5. Reading old horror is hard to do I am mostly desensitized to most things violent and horrific But I will point out that this collection of terrifying Tales could have been especially haunting if I was reading them in their time of creation I read At the Mountains of Madness so I could better enjoy the graphic novel I purchased a few years back Like reading a book before seeing a movie I thought it would behoove me to read the novel before the comic version and I here tell there is a movie for th [...]

    6. I actually thought the main story, Lovecraft s most famous, was exceptionally boring He spent way too much time on scientific details of the expedition, and the scary parts justweren t scary The other works in this collection were much better.

    7. Seems to me to be a good introduction to Lovecraft s work The title story and The Dreams in the Witch House in particular appealed to me, not as horror but as interesting science fiction type tales tinged with elements of the unnerving Looking forward to reading of his works now

    8. I did find the collection a bit slow going, and of course dated at points, but I was consistently impressed by the sheer creativity I love a good occult horror, and the seeds of that genre are all here Talking to someone about the book, I was most impressed by how difficult it is to describe the stories to another person Lovecraft manages to capture incomprehension and madness while still allowing you to feel as though you have a fragmentary grasp of what may have happened in each tale.

    9. kitaptan olu an seride, Lovecraft n uzun yk lerinin yer ald serinin ilk kitab Lovecraft a r betimleme kullanan bir yazar, dolay s yla uzun c mleler yorucu olabiliyor Bunun d nda kurgulad fantastik d nyalar harika zellikle fantastik ve korku yazarlar n n nc llerinden oldu u d n l rse, okumamak eksiklik denebilir.

    11. Lovecraft confuses me sometimes I like his visions of cosmic horror, but his stated position as a kind of xenophobic bigot has always bothered me too I often wonder if that misplaced fear contributed to his haunted visions of the strange beings that lurk within the Earth s uncharted depths.So I was a little bit puzzled by his comparatively companionable view of the beings that his fictitious Antarctic expedition unearthed it seemed kind of incongruous in that light Poor devils After all, they we [...]

    12. This book was another semi random pick from the 1001 Books list Before reading it, I looked up a plot synopsis and was a bit worried that it would be too scary for me However, I was pleasantly surprised by the book.It s about an expedition to Antarctica where some strange things are discovered The first part of the story tells about the actual expedition and was pretty interesting There is a lot of detailed description of Antarctica and extremely cold weather scientific study, which might be too [...]

    13. I read Mountains of Madness a few years ago and very much enjoyed it I believe it may have been my first Lovecraft book.The whole concept of evil aliens on Earth during our pre history was a new concept for me as a reader Lovecraft certainly presented it in a spooky way It certainly reminds you of the fact that we weren t always the dominant species on the planet.There are two things that have occurred in recent years that make Mountains of Madness seem eerily prophetic First, Lovecraft portrays [...]

    14. i m rating this at 4 stars instead of five, because the three stories that accompany at the mountain of madness can t compare to its five star greatness i assumed i d like ATMOM, but i didn t expect to love it it manages to be the perfect embodiment of the atmospheric horror story taking its time, building a plausibly menacing, pseudo scientific universe and forcing me to tiptoe through it it s also a convincing exploration of the sublime that avoids the cheesy trappings of the genre finally, it [...]

    15. Although this is the first Lovecraft book that I ve ever read, I ve been very familiar with his work in the form of board games Probably my favorite part of the book was coming across locations and knowing a bit about them already I also like how his characters all populate the same world with Miskatonic U and Arkham That being said, it was VERY dry and highly descriptive I think this would be best as a picture book or a movie.

    16. Probably Lovecraft s finest story, the main novella, At the Mountains of Madness is an entertaining tale of an Antarctic expedition into Lovecraft s Mythos Excellent stage setting and atmosphere created 2 other stories are also quite excellent in this edition The Shunned House and The Dreams in the Witch House are both good examples of the Lovecraftian tale, with great use of Lovecraft s New England setting.

    17. i was totally floored by this after so many years of dismissing lovecaft as a horror writer, i finally picked this up because the title work kept appearing on so many science fiction reading lists it is a extremely compelling, completely unique story and not in any way similar to the preconceived notions i had before reading.

    18. Collects Lovecraft s three horror novels the title work, The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath There is also a group of well chosen short stories including The Dreams in the Witch House which may be one of Lovecraft s scariest Of all the Lovecraft anthologies out there, this may be a good one for the Lovecraft beginner.

    19. This collection is mostly Lovecraft s longer stories The first two stories are quite good, but I did not care for The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath While I liked how it was written, there was no progression to anything and made it hard to get through My favorite was The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, and I also enjoyed the shorter stories as well.

    20. This just felt so dated to me I m trying not to be hard on it, but it felt like it had the language of the old epics, while also having the depth of the modern cheese A lot of lovely language and little substance.

    21. Or, at any rate, I read At the Mountains of Madness but not the others included in this edition.EDIT Have now also read The Shunned House.

    22. Unfortunately,contains four of my least favorite Lovecraft stories Only one of the Cthulhu mythos the others are dream cycle stories or standard ghost stories.

    23. Can t give this 5 5 because the Other Tales of Terror don t deserve perfect marks, but this is some of the most entertaining horror I ve ever read.
