“The Doom That Came to Sarnath” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

So another disappointing short story by H.P Lovecraft. Which really makes me sad because I want to like all of H.P Lovecraft’s works but as you may see this website it doesn’t work. 

The writing style in this one I gotta say is probably the most enjoyable part in this short story. The writing style here is sort of a mythic/fantasy style which I really enjoyed.

I gotta give this short story extra points for being connected with Dream Cycle, which is something I truly enjoy when it comes to H.P Lovecraft.

The plot itself here wasn’t really much to talk about here. Because it wasn’t entertaining, it wasn’t enjoyable. It was just bad.

The characters here again are bad, and I again couldn’t connect with them. So the rating is low as you may expect here. 

I give this short story 2 / 5
