“The Nameless City” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

The unnamed narrator of the story goes into the middle of the Arabian Peninsula to seek out and enter a lost city. After hearing a clanging seemingly coming from deep inside the earth, the narrator inspects mysterious carvings and ruins until nightfall. The next day, the narrator discovers a cliff riddled with low-ceilinged buildings, unfit for human use.

The writing style was pretty okay, but there were parts of it which really were poor. And these parts really ruined more the short story. 

The plot itself wasn’t great. It was okay at its best. However I liked the fact that this short story was set in the Cthulhu Mythos world. 

And this short story wasn’t another short story which was based on one of H.P Lovecraft’s dream. 

I also need to give this short story couple of points for sometimes having a creepy vibe in it.

However the characters in this short story, I had really hard time connecting with them. And as some of you might know that if I can’t connect with the characters in a book or the plot itself then the results in a very low rating.

I give this short story 2 / 5
