The story is told by Albert N. Wilmarth, an instructor of literature at Miskatonic University in Arkham. When local newspapers report strange things seen floating in rivers during a historic Vermont flood, Wilmarth becomes embroiled in a controversy about the reality and significance of the sightings, though he sides with the skeptics. Wilmarth uncovers old legends about monsters living in the uninhabited hills who abduct people who venture or settle too close to their territory.
And yet again we are talking about other not so good short story written by H.P Lovecraft. Which is really disappointing because I want to love all of his short stories but so far it didn’t happen.
This one was way too long, and not enough of action. This short story was so uninteresting and boring because there was nothing happening in this one which really made me angry.
The writing style itself wasn’t better than the aspect we talk about above. The writing style felt like it was written by a junior high school student who just didn’t give a shit.
The plot was so stupid and very uninteresting. There was nothing happening in this short story which would be worth reading. The scary part in this short story didn’t exists here.
I give this short story 1 / 5
