    Important and Unique

    The premise of this book was too cool to pass by, and while there was less Lovecraftian elements than I hoped for, I have to say that it lived up to the hype and is one of the most interesting, unique, and creative novels I've ever read. The more I think about it, the more I love it and am thrilled to see Jordan Peele's take on it. The story is told from various character perspective, and while at the beginning the stories don't appear to connect, everything leads to a quick-thinking finale. It's hard for me to pick a favourite character and storyline. I would say that Ruby, Horace, and Letitia were in the top ranks, though I did find one of Mortese's storylines to be quite compelling. I also have to say that I loved the villain Caleb. I stated earlier that this book doesn't have a super obvious or heavy Lovecraftian element, that doesn't stop it from being disturbing and creepy. Horace in particular had a creepy story that may keep me up at night, and Ruby's story took a twisted turn before the end. But the biggest disturbance of the book was the racism. LOVECRAFT COUNTRY pulls no punches about the message it wants to send, and it's all the more chilling and relevant in this day and age. I can't say that I loved reading those moments, but they are important, and lessons must be learned from them. All in all, LOVECRAFT COUNTRY was not what I expected and a trip away from my usual fare, but it was ultimately one of the most unique, compelling, and important books I've read in a long time. Definite recommend!

    Fantastic Lovecraftian fiction

    A series of interconnected vignettes with really amazing characters and a fully realized universe. I loved this book so much, and I'm so happy it's becoming a TV show.

    Disappointing...

    I thought I'd found a gem with this one, but about a third of way in the F-bombs started dropping and the story got lost behind the filth...
