“The Evil Clergyman” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

The story begins in the attic of an ancient house. The narrator’s companion refers to the former owner of the house and the presumably violent end that befell him. He advises the narrator not to stay after dark or touch anything.

The narration style to this story was pretty good but the entire plot wasn’t. I had high hopes for this one but it didn’t live up to these hopes.

The writing style was pretty okay but it could have been much better than it actually was.

And to be fully honest with you here I didn’t care for it, nor the characters which are in this short story.

The characters here and the narrator in this short story are just so flat that it becomes insurable.

This short story wasn’t even a little bit scary which is sad because HP Lovecraft wrote this one. And he is considered to be one of the few horror masters.

I give this short story 1 / 5
