A review of Color Out of Space
I have only recently started reading Lovecraft, starting with At the Mountain of Madness, and this is the fourth Lovecraft story I have read over the last few days. So far, every book has just gotten better and better, and this is easily in my top 5 books of all time. It is the tale of a meteorite which lands on a farmers land, bringing with it something dark and deadly from the deepest depths of the cosmos. This book, like most of Lovecrafts fiction, is very descriptive, literally painting an image in your head of the vision of the author. The tale is written from the perspective of a professor who is friends with the farmer, which adds to the tension as the intelligent man is powerless to comprehend what ill fates are befalling his friend. The entire story is satisfying until the last, and if at one point I thought that Mountains of Madness was the best book I have ever read, it surely isn't so anymore. Or is it? I don't know, but this author sure knows how to write a masterpiece.
