It started so well but by the end of the second #book I feel it was drifting off Still well worth reading but not as good as it could have been This #I feel it was drifting off Still well worth reading but not as good as it could have been This of three novels was alright The first story The burrowers Beneath was the Lovecraft mythos I enjoy unspeakable monsters crazy cults coming after you Great stuffThe second book went on a weird turn with time travel in a old grandfather clock where you step inside and its bigger on the inside then the outside Doctor who
He Uses A Nice
uses a nice from whisperers in darkness to good use but I wasn t too excited about what happens to Titus Crow in this book Seemed to much like science fiction superhero stuff instead of unspeakable horror and sights that drive a man insaneThe third book uses the mythos in a different way Lumley uses the mythos here of the Dreamlands and a couple other locations that Lovecraft made up A bit of a fast twist from the last bookI look forward to reading the other Mythos Omnibus but I hope the stories come back to the strange and scary not flying cloaks and plastic men I liked The Burrowers Beneath I d give that 3 or 4 stars but was disappointed with The Transition of Titus Crow Maybe Lumley lost me somewhere or maybe he got lost himself All I now is suddenly I was reading science fiction and fantasy instead of horror not that I do.

McKellen that can batter Cthulhu all his with his corner shop full of psychic #doodads magical geegaws and a wicked clock Combined with his address book chock full of #magical geegaws and a wicked clock Combined with his address book chock full of who own everything ever written on the denizens of Ry leh he is truly unstoppable Which is missing the point entirelyBy the time the dust settles after the third installment mankind has won An unexpected twist for all the wrong reasons It s a fundamental misreading of the mythos It s like Darth Vader winning It s like King Kong settling down in Brooklyn with an office job It is to the universe created by Lovecraft what Indiana Jones 4 was inexcusable I didn t have high hopes for this series but the books get a lot better as you progress By the end of these three I ve rather fallen in love with the series It s creative and expansive I d definitely recommend reading it I can understand why the reviews are so mixed on this book I have yet to read Lovecraft s stories they re next on my list so my expectations were totally different from everyone else s If you re looking for Lovecraft standard horror then you re probably not likely to enjoy this book as much as I did But if you start reading this nowing that there is very tame horror then I think you ll enjoy it Full review to come later.
