Bit of a painful read for a collection of plagiarised fairytales. Not really suitable for children as contains incest, murder, torture and concept of constant surveillance.
First half is about brutal univeral overlord who wipes out various groups, at one stage the whole population of the planet.
Second half is even more bizarre: all powerful creator for some reason creates a son who is put there to be tortured so that the creator will forgive mankind. Never quite figured out why he didn't just snap the fingers rather than torture a being (although compared to the first half where he slaughters children etc.. nice to see just one person getting tortured/killed for a change).
Would give it a miss and read something decent, something less nonsensical and less waffling.
This book should be a companion reader to anyone studying Khun. Probably the most important book on scientific philosophy written at the turn of last century.
It also reads like the Weekly World News. Have fun!
you know, everyone, that the metal band Metallica made several songs off of Lovecrafts books, such as: 'Ride the Lightning', 'The Call of Ktulu' (they changed the spelling cuz no1 could pronounce it), 'The Thing That Should Not Be' and among others, check um out
A. Merritt is the best author ever, for a very good reason. He LIVED his storys. There is evidence that he actually believed he was in the worlds he wrote (you may say insane, but i won't because insanity is relative). that is why there is so much more detail than any other story. i happen to own 4 of his books, this and The Face In The Abyss, as well as 2 others.
