The House on the Borderland

by William Hope Hodgson

I read this book soley on the reviews listed for it, but I must say I found the story to be at first intriguing, then strange, then utterly psychodelic. I am used to reading "literal" horror/mystery stories and I suppose in this particular book I should have been more open to ... metaphorical imagery? I admit I skimmed through a great deal of pages after the part where time began to speed up because it wasn't really making sense to me.
Although it wasn't a favorite, it obviously made an impression on me as I'm still thinking about the events that transpired!

Wow! I really was not expecting to read such vulgar language in a story written so long ago, haha! Amusing and ... quite vivid, I'll give it that!
