The story’s narrator, Francis Wayland Thurston, recounts his discovery of various notes left behind by his great uncle, George Gammell Angell, a prominent professor of Semitic languages at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, who died during the winter of 1926, suspecting eldritch goings-on after being bumped into by a “nautical-looking negro”.
The plot itself was okay for the most part but there were a lots of swings in it. There were good moments and there were bad moments. However the idea behind the plot was very good and it had the potential to be much better than it actually was. So ill give this short stir points for that.
The writing style was okay for the most part but I didn’t feel quite like H.P Lovecraft have written it. So I don’t know what he had tried to do with this one.
The atmosphere was very eerie which I loved and I give this short story points for that.
As a stand alone short story this one really dives but if he had more follow ups stories to it then it would be much better because it would bring more into it and give us more in sights.
I give this short story 3 / 5
