About book The Call Of The Cthulhu (1926)

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."And this is just the first paragraph. Again, the elitism is the last-minute kick in a lot of these stories.I was genuinely liking this until my stupid plebeian brain refused to show me the island.Defy geometry, does it? The thing I never even took in high school (yep. I was really that dumb) well, fine.I'm done with this.I tell myself that when too many things 'defy description' maybe it is you being lazy and not me being stupid.And I feel somewhat better. But I know wanting to like something isn't enough.Maybe Scholastic would be an appropriately banal and conventional publisher for me.

Do You like book The Call Of The Cthulhu (1926)?

Not scary or creepy. Extremely dry. The world building is interesting, but not enough.

The beginning of a legendary series, this is. Love the mystery and suspense.

Short story, not necessarily an easy read, nevertheless exciting.

Good, can't compare with Sdow over Innsmouth though.
