This classic mind-shattering tale, which "ranks high among the horror stories of the English language," plunges into the darkness of the Cthulhu mythos (Time). In the uncharted wastes of Antarctica, an exploration party from Miskatonic University encounters a gory sight when they discover their advance team's camp has been destroyed and its members slaughtered. There is no evidence of what happened except a series of burial mounds, six of which contain dead specimens of unknown species. Eight similar tombs are empty, but they haven't been broken into--they've been broken out of.   What began as a search for knowledge soon becomes a terrifying confrontation with the true nature of the world and the universe in all its stark blackness and unyielding oblivion. For mankind is not--and never has been--the bright light of creation. It's all a mistake, an insignificant stain of existence, forgotten by an unwitting and indifferent creator . . . until now.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.… (més)

    The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis [short story] de Clark Ashton Smith (artturnerjr)
    artturnerjr: Smith's tale seems to have been at least partly inspired by his friend Lovecraft's novel, which he read in manuscript before it was published.

    The Terror de Dan Simmons (MarcusH)
    MarcusH: H.P. Lovecraft's novella calls about the desolation of the Antarctic to create a sense of terror in the reader. Simmons' novel also calls upon the desolation of the Arctic to create a similar sense of suspense. Simmons' novel is much lengthier and does not rely on fantasy as Lovecraft does. The Terror is more horror, but it still shares the great tradition of suspense with Lovecraft's writing.… (més)

Spooky and haunting rather than bloody and violent ( )
  teafancier | Oct 23, 2021 |
En 1929 la Universidad de Miskalonic envió una expedición a explorar la Antártida. Descubrieron fósiles de un valor incalculable, y enviaron informes sobre una misteriosa cordillera cuya altitud rivalizaba con la de los picos más altos del Himalaya. Dos hombres cruzaron las montañas en busca de alguien desaparecido; cuando regresaron estaban severamente trastornados y uno sufría una grave locura. Posteriormente, el esritor H.P. Lovecraft publicó el relato de lo que les sucedió a estos hombres.

I still don't get why this one is heralded as one of Lovecraft's best. To me, it's not even close.

Once again, is it a great idea? Hell yes.

But Lovecraft stuffs so many measurements, so many longitudes and latitudes, so many elevations, so much architectural detail into what is a shockingly simple story, that it simply bogs down. Honestly, this thing is less than 150 pages, and I had to take break after eye-drooping break just to get to the last payoff, a quick little footrace with the only living thing we finally get that's horrible, and that's not until the last ten pages or so.

When I first listened to this in audio format (big mistake, it was an amateur reader that pronounced all Ls and Rs as Ws, as in "H. P. Wovecwaft" so it felt like Elmer Fudd was telling me the story). I described this at the time, as less a horror story and more an article from Architectural Digest From Hell.

Five years later, I still agree with that. In fact, the backup story that helped, in part, to inspire At The Mountains of Madness, called In Amundsen's Tent, was the far superior story (and one that Lovecraft enjoyed, but felt it was "clumsy").

There's better Lovecraft out there than this. ( )

Lovecraft got paid by number of words and, well... it's noticable. I feel the suspense would have profited from less adjectives, adverbs and repetitions. Still I had fun listening to this on the Classic Tales Podcast and At the Mountains of Madness is one of my favourite stories by Lovecraft, so it's 4.5 stars for the story itself. ( )
