Big Machine by Victor LaValle, African/African American Literature (helmikuu 2013)

Kirja-arvosteluja

Lovecraft in Flatbush, well also Harlem and other NYC areas, 1920s. This deftly provides all that's needed to understand how the choice between Cthulhu and the status quo might fall out in Cthulhu's favor.

Perfectly readable and engaging but just didn't blow my mind. The horror concepts at its core didn't deliver for me. That last third pushed the pacing awesomely though, it moved wonderfully fast and had some solid plot turns. Really more of a 3.5 than a 3.

Great, uncommon character-based drama in the guise of horror set in a psych ward. One of the warmest, most appealing voices in fiction I’ve read this year. I couldn’t put it down.

This was almost everything I could ask for in a Lovecraft retelling/inspired story. I loved Tom's character and felt for his sorrow. I loved the horror and dark justice towards the end. My major gripe about this was having to read from the cop's POV - I think I could've easily read another 200 pages of this if it meant more of Tom. I'm really eager to seek out more Lovecraft retellings along this vein.
