A Interesting Read21 avril 2014
- Publié sur Amazon.com
I purchased this book after learning about it from some articles about the TV seriesTrue Detective. I have read other older horror/mystery stories before. This collection is similiar to the style of H.P. Lovecraft in that it is haunting...and also leaves a lot up to the reader to imagine. It is an interesting read for anyone who enjoys this genre but somehow never stumbled upon this book. It does not follow the TV series beyond the reference to the King in Yellow, as well as the theme of madness. If you are looking for something similiar to the series, this isn't it. However, if you enjoy odd stories with strange endings...this is a your book.
