“A Reminiscence of Dr. Samuel Johnson” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

So another decent short story from H.P Lovecraft. For the most part it was enjoyable and fun to read bit it was far from the best short story written by H.P Lovecraft. 

The best part of this short story if you ask me where when H.P Lovecraft had  poked fun at his own vintage, gothic and archaic style of writing. I personally love when authors make fun of themselves or the pop culture in their books but of course within a reason because everything can be overdone.

The plot itself in this short story was for the most part boring but of course it had some good parts here and there. Which this it needs to get points for. 

I gotta say that this short story wasn’t the typical H.P Lovecraft short story nor the short story which you will expect from the man. But it was interesting to see H.P Lovecraft try to do something new for himself and not just stick the the style which made him famous. 

Overall this short story felt like it was more like a parody than a serious short story. 

I give this short story 3 / 5
