Due to lack of funds, a student studying metaphysics abroad is forced to take up lodging in a cheap apartment building on a street named the “Rue d’Auseil”. The street is not far from his university and is bordered by a river, dark warehouses and a large wall, giving the street an appearance of being on a cliff. The student cannot see what lies on the other side of the wall, as only a single window on the top floor of his building looks over it.
This one is what I’ve always expect from H.P Lovecraft. It is super interesting, its eerie, it got that sinister vibe to it and I love it.
The plot here had some plot holes here and there but it was super fun to read and it was super interesting to read. However it had few down tripes but nothing which will ruin much this story for you.
The writing style here was amazing. The writing style here really speaks for itself and really gives you the huge H.P Lovecraft vibe.
If you never read anything from H.P Lovecraft before and you want to start the journey somewhere then ill would say that this one is one of the nest stories to start the journey with.
I give this short story 4 / 5
