“The Street” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

The story traces the history of the eponymous street in a New England city, presumably Boston, from its first beginnings as a path in colonial times to a quasi-supernatural occurrence in the years immediately following World War I.

This one was disappointing because there are a lot of people on the interment who are saying that this short story is amazing but it isn’t. This short story is on the opposite of amazing. 

The writing style here is very boring, it truly doesn’t feel like something written by H.P Lovecraft. Which is sad because if a short story is written by H.P Lovecraft but it doesn’t feel like H.P Lovecraft then it takes the wind out of it.

The plot in this one is about a street in somewhere in New Hampshire, Massachusetts,  Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont or Maine which of course is the New England area. And if you know me then you know that I’m a huge fan of New England Patriots so when I’ve learned that this short story takes place in New England then the expectations for it went through the roof for me but it didn’t live up to these expectations. 

This short story didn’t live up to expectations just as New England Patriots this season (2021-22) which I personally hate to see. 

The way which this short story was told through was embarrassing and mixed with ridiculous.

This short story isn’t really horror story, it is actually far from it. This short story felt kind of random to me and I had a really hard time connecting with this story which again results in low rating. 

I give this short story 1 / 5
