“The Haunter of the Dark” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

Robert Blake – a young man with an interest in the occult – becomes fascinated by a large disused church set on a hill which he can see from his lodgings. His researches reveal that the church has a sinister history and is dreaded by the local inhabitants as being haunted by a primeval evil.

This short story is one of the most popular short stories by H.P Lovecraft. It seems like everyone who have read it truly loved this short story but it didn’t work for me maybe because I’m super harsh for everything I read lately. 

The plot was super boring and it felt like it was building a none existing tension to just go nowhere with it. I really had hard time trying to focus on this short story because me attention couldn’t just stand this short story. And I just ended up with DNF-ing it

The writing style in this one was pretty decent but still it wasn’t the best and it wasn’t on the H.P Lovecraft level was you might have thought. 

I give this short story 1 / 5
