    One thought on “The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft”

    1. Review updated on May 17, 2017 yet again.As the title says this is complete work from the classic of horror genre. It is difficult to review a book with 62 different stories in it as they are quite diverse. The general idea in the majority of the stories is the forbidden knowledge. Some of the things are not meant to be known to the mankind, and meddling with them will lead to madness in the best case, or unleashing a great evil in the worst. Having said that, I need to mention that H.P.Lovecraf [...]

    2. I've only finished the 'The Call of Cthulhu' - reasonably entertaining and I'm up for more - however the key word is 'Quaint.'The language style is so old world (code word for turgid) as to affect the narrative power of the story. I.e. the writing absolutely gets in the way of the reading. I would normally DNF a book written with this style.However, you can see things that would have been quite innovative at the time, such as landscapes that do not obey normal geometry, the concept of cosmic hor [...]

    3. A little daunted by the prolific proclivities of Lovecraft, I decided to cherry pick. General consensus pointed out the following five tales as being the cream of the crop:1. The Dragon2. The Outsider3. The Lurking Fear4. The call of Cthulu5. The Colour of outerspaceAnd, from my GR friend Bennet I picked up on ‘The thing on the doorstep’ which otherwise gets few mentions but turned out to be my favourite of the bunch. Then I stopped, because GR Chris told me too. And, because Lovecraft simpl [...]

    4. Disclosure: I picked up a free copy formatted for Nook on CthulhuChick. You can pick up a Kindle copy at the same place.Synopsis: The Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft contains all the original stories which Lovecraft wrote as an adult. It begins in 1917 with “The Tomb” and ends in 1935 with his last original work “The Haunter of the Dark.” The book is ordered chronologically by the date the story was written. Because Lovecraft was a terrible businessman and left no heirs to his intellect [...]

    5. A complete collection of H.P. Lovecraft's solo works (no collaborations), arranged by date. It's a huge work, no doubt.My only gripe about the stories is that Lovecraft was overfond of a narrative style. If dialogue were water, I'd have died of thirst. And yet, the best of them read like a confession whispered through the cell door bars of an insane asylum.One thing that surprised me was that Cthulhu was a prominent character in only one story… and from that has been built a massive edifice of [...]

    6. First of all, if I was rating the work that Ruth at cthulhuchick has done in compiling this collection, I'd give it a full 5 stars. She did an excellent job creating the e-book.I had some very good memories of reading Lovecraft, and most of the stories still hold up well. What I could not get over though was the blatant racism. I realize that it was written in a different time, but it left me unable to fully appreciate the stories.It was great to finally read the full Cthulhu mythos in order and [...]

    7. I've been working on reading through these short stories and novellas for the past 9 months, taking my time with them and making sure I didn't rush through them too quickly. I also didn't want to get burned out on them. There are a total of 63 works in this complete collection, presented in the order in which they were written (not necessarily the same as the order of publication). There are no collaborations here, just the total body of work that HP Lovecraft produced on his own.As with any col [...]

    8. read a decent selection of it :) pretty great! Something being Euclidean or not is significantly less scary than he imagines haha

    9. **Review Under Construction********************************************************************************November 1, 2015: Full disclosure, I don't really like Lovecraft. I love Poe, but Lovecraft did not impress me when I sampled him a few years ago. However, as with The Turn of the Screw, I feel I should read Lovecraft just to catch all the allusions, especially since I have recently fallen in love with the work of a writer of the self-proclaimed New Weird (Jeff VanderMeer), as it seems that [...]

    10. Best ebook version of Lovecraft with contents linked such that you can easily hop to the story you need. Other Lovecraft compilations on (at the time I bought this) don't have that linked contents, and you don't want to have to page through an entire book of this size just to get to one story.Also worth the purchase because it was given away free (and you can still find it) - but I'd urge you to kick some money over to the woman who did the formatting (CthulhuChick), it's worth it.As for the st [...]

    11. The complete works of a master at the price of 99 cents. A steal at ten times the price.Seriously, if you have a Kindle, get this. It's formatted near perfectly for an insane amount of content, and the stories are arranged by date so you get the entire feel of Lovecraft's work. There's a lot of repetition if you try and read the entire thing, but you can trace the development of the Mythos, and appreciate all the self-referencing each of his works has. If you've just read Dream-Quest of Unknown [...]

    12. I read the half of the stories, mesmerized by Lovecraft's style and atmosphere but I need to have a break and get away from this eeriness for a while. When it comes to Lovecraft, everyone mentions 'the Call of Ktulu' but there is more to it although I felt reading the same creepy adventures of the same character from different times for most of the stories. One thing that bugs me and makes me have mixed feelings is his racist approach to non-Europeans. Most foreigners are malicious and unreliabl [...]

    13. I was prepared for the creepiness of his stories, but not the unexpectedly gorgeous prose.Some favorites:The Quest of IranonThe Music of Erich ZannThe Silver KeyThe Dream-Quest of Unknown KadathThe Case of Charles Dexter Ward

    14. Last year I read "Tales," the H.P. Lovecraft collection put together by the Library of America. That was my first exposure to Lovecraft and it was fantastic. It included most of his best known and longer works. I figured the stories they had excluded were probably the best of the best. Were they? Well, for the most part, yes. But there are some gems out there. With that being said, here's my review of the rest of Lovecraft's writing:The Tomb: Lovecraft's first published work. A creepy tale of a [...]

    15. I am rating this as an entire book, rather than an opinion of the author in general or of any given stories. And that may be the main problem I had with this book, or the main problem I have as a reader. When I get a book, I like to read it cover to cover. I don't like to quit books that I've started. So I read every story. If you don't have my compulsions, this would be a good reference book to HP Lovecraft. As a complete collection, one quickly discovers that Lovecraft is quite repetitive, bot [...]

    16. A classic! All of Lovecraft's fiction in one place and in chronological order.His works are wonderfully creepy and redolent with science and folklore. What makes them even more creepy is the realism he places in them. Just enough for you to wonder "what if?". I just love this stuff.

    17. In one word: amazing. It took me over a year to make my way through all the stories, but in the end, I feel it was worth it. Lovecraft is a difficult writer to get into. His early work is honestly subpar although there are flashes of brilliance ("Dagon" comes to mind). The later stories are absolutely mindblowing, especially the Mythos stories.What I loved most about Lovecraft is his boundless imagination. Very few writers have been able to depict aliens as something truly alien. His conception [...]

    18. It has been almost twenty years since I last ready Lovecraft on a regular basis, so I was quite concerned that my earlier fascination with his work had been a "phase" (it's not like I ever gave up on sci-fi and fantasy literature), but the months that I devoted to these complete works (a labour of love by Cthulhu Chick arkhamarchivist/) has been like getting in touch with a dear old friend and finding that he/she is even deeper than your remembered. This may sound odd, in view of Lovecraft's rec [...]

    19. This Kindle edition is great. Well done, ChthulhuChick.I run hot and cold on Lovecraft. His protagonists are dull and mostly interchangeable. He avoids dialogue like mice avoid cats. He loves antiquated words. He tells stories obliquely, often through the voice of someone relaying things that purportedly happened to someone else.On the other hand, his vision of horror is more applicable to real life than the vampires, werewolves and ghosts of old -- it is a better metaphor for the doom we all fe [...]

    20. Probably one of the best indexed versions of H.P. Lovecraft's works, this has every story he's even written, except for Imprisoned With The Pharaohs. As a complete collection, this is indeed as good as it gets. It has some of his best known stories (At the Mountains of Madness, Herbert West — Reanimator, The Dreams in the Witch House) and some of the harder to find stories (In the Walls of Eryx, Through the Gates of the Silver Key, The White Ship). So, while previously you may have had to get [...]

    21. In defence of the early stories, I've read "The Tomb" and "Dagon" and enjoyed both. I agree that stories like "The Dunwich Horror" (for example) are superior, but that's no reason to write off the early works. The image of the immense, slippery fish-god wrapping its arms around the stone monolith and the dark simplicity with which Lovecraft writes "I think I went mad then." gave me a shudder.I shall continue with interest.UPDATE: "Polaris" was very good indeed, and once again demonstrates what g [...]

    22. Lovecraft, as always, comes with a gigantic disclaimer. The racism, the misogyny, or just plain malice of Lovecraft are sometimes hard to deal with, and probably enough to make many people put down his stories (including me, more than a few times) but at the same time, they are a really good read. Especially in the genre. Lovecraft was an a******, but he was also a pretty decent writer of the weird tales. Or something.

    23. I finished this a few days ago and feel like it deserves some words. Some minor spoilers are possible!Just to get it out of the way, yes, Lovecraft has more than a few moments of awful racism, and his female characters are pretty much non-existent. There's not much excuse for this; Lovecraft's personal racism and sexism are well-documented. It's really an unfortunate intrusion of a retrograde authorial perspective. I try to get past it by just thinking of it as part of the narrators' biases; the [...]

    24. Não acredito, depois de ANOS, finalmente terminei de ler esse livro. Na verdade, é mais do que um livro, são as obras completas de Lovecraft. Então tem livros e contos que ele escrevem, inclusive alguns com algumas pessoas. Aqui, eu me arrependi um pouco de ter colocado essa edição ao invés de ir adicionando cada um dos livros ou contos, porque acho que ficaria até mais legal, fazer uma resenha de cada um dos trabalhos. Mas agora já foi. Talvez eu volte em um ou outro livro e escreva a [...]

    25. I am reading a different complete collection from the Google Play store I think, but this seems to be as close as I can find. I'm going to review each story as I read them since there are so many. My final thoughts on Lovecraft as a whole follow.An Alchemist - I did some research and found out Lovecraft wrote this while a teenager. It feels like a story written by someone who admires Edgar Allen Poe, but also hasn't developed their own voice yet. The conceit of the story is similar to Fall of th [...]

    26. H.P. Lovecraft is a great writer who defined the genre of horror fiction in the early 1900s, and even after his death continued to influence literature, which is clear in today's writing. This is a definitive collection of all his books, and one I can easily recommend to someone who loves Lovecraft or who is just getting into his works.

    27. Virtually compulsory reading if you're a horror writer, as Lovecraft is widely considered to be one of the founders of the genre.
