“The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

In his dreams, Randolph Carter sees a majestic city, but is unable to approach it. After the third time the city appears in his dreams, his longing to reach the city reaches its peak. He prays to the gods of dream to reveal the city’s whereabouts, but then the city vanishes from his dreams altogether. Undaunted, Carter resolves to beseech the gods in person at Kadath, the mountain above which the gods of dream live.

So this one is another short story from H.P Lovecraft which involves a lots of talk about dreams. However this one is very, very good. 

The plot here was amazing, it was interesting, it was eerie, it had the sinister vibe to it, it was fun and so much more. I gotta say that the plot in this one was a typical H.P Lovecraft plot because there was so much to it which only few authors could handle to do and H.P Lovecraft was one of them.

The writing style was amazing. It really screamed that H.P Lovecraft have written it. You could really see the soul to H.P Lovecraft in the writing style in this short story. 

The narration of the story was amazing, it felt like Stephen King mixed with Edgar Allan Poe. And id you know me then you know that I love both of these two authors, but my favourite is definitely Stephen King.

I give this short story 4 / 5
