5.0 out of 5 stars Iya, Iya Cthulhu
This fantastic short story is a must for anyone who wants to see what all the fuss is about Lovecraft. I bought this edition as a copy to lend to players of Cthulhu RPG games as a primer on Lovecraftian horror and was amazed at the simple but high-quality printing.

I suggest buying this as a low-cost taster and, if you like what you read, there are some amazing...

Had been wanting to read this for a while, and finally got round to it.

A good read, though a bit 'dry' in some bits..

Interesting read. Very short story. Arrived in good time and reasonably priced. A good read for anybody interested in the Cthulhu franchise, or general short stories.

This review is from: The Call of Cthulhu (Kindle Edition)
The Call of Cthulhu was key in launching a plethora of weird tales more than a century ago, so I wanted to read it. To buy it for only 77 pence from Amazon for my Kindle was great. I have since found the same story for free from other online sources, but the Kindle version comes with Kindle's dictionary at the touch of the mouse, bookmarks and note taking facilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars By a water fall I'm calling Cthulhu, 1 Aug 2013

This review is from: The Call of Cthulhu (Paperback)
For some reason this critter is a H.P. Lovecraft classic. I have ordered the 2005 movie. I kept waiting for the action and somehow it ended before it started. I did not realize how meaningful the title was until the end where I said "Oh wow now I understand.

After Francis Wayland Thurston (a professor at Brown University), shuffles off this moral coil he leaves papers. His great-nephew an anthropologist who narrates the story is shocked to find France Wayland's research into what started out as a spooky dream to find that he uncovers the cabal of Cthulhu worshipers. But who or what is Cthulhu. We travel with the narrator as he pieces together what Francis was suspecting. When Cthulhu calls we may even have to confront him/it ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for horror fans, 15 Jun 2013
Mega-classic horror yarn, in many ways the originator of all modern horror literature. The writing style perfectly evokes a whole new and alien world of eldritch evil.
