Not Cthulhu and not horror!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dagon (Voices of the South) (Kindle Edition)
I found this book quiet long winded, with little resemblance to the cthulhu mythos, mystery or horror. The book centres entirely on Peter Leland, a preacher, who moves to his ancestral home and his physical and mental decline thereafter. It all begins when he espies a woman, Mina, who is living in a derelict house on his estate. From then on he murders his wife and then becomes a sort of puppet for Mina until his final death at a temple to dagon (and this occurs in the final page or 2 of the book). There is only a hint or two at the cthulhu myth with the rest of the book only about the thoughts and feelings of Peter as he is degraded by Mina. And that's it. Anyone buying or reading this book and believing it will be in the mode of H P Lovecraft or August Derleth with be greatly disappointed. Cthulhu it is not!
