And today again we are talking about HP Lovecraft and one of his short stories.
Before we start this review let me just quickly mention that are couple of comments on goodreads that this short story is racist. But no that’s not true.
The writing style here was pretty decent but it could have been better, and HP Lovecraft was fully able to do better.
The plot, was pretty okay but I personally felt like there was something missing in it. But I just can’t tell what. But for the most part the premise of this story was well done, and the mystery in this story was pretty okay overall.
This story involves probably the worst way to die which of course is dead by burning alive. Which really gave me chills while reading it.
I give this short story 1 / 5
