This book isn't deep if that's what you are looking for. It is 100% plot and character but it does those two things very well. It is like watching a great tv show full of action except you are reading and not watching. It's a great book for a vacation at the cottage or beach. I liked it alot, it was captivating and I read it from start to finish in one sitting.
sarah’s book reviews
My favorite Lovecraft story! I would love to see an artist illustrate this story or a film-maker interpret Lovecraft's vision. Lovecraft creates a richly detailed story of an expedition to an Antarctic enclave of ancient, slumbering monsters. Sounds corny but it is a genius work of horror-fantasy. Lovecraft creates the best monsters and this is his master-work.
