So, there is something that has been tugging at me about Lovecraft's racism. He so despises what he thinks of as lower races that he can't even let them be the master villains of his stories. He always brings in some educated white dude to really kick off the evil plot. In addition to that, the plot and the ultimate reveal are both train wreck material in this one. I know I've been complaining about the horrors to horrible to actually take place, but this one goes to the other extreme, showing so much that the horrors are almost comical.

The one good thing I can say about this is that Victor LaValle decided to make something of it. Run don't walk over to [b:The Ballad of Black Tom|26883558|The Ballad of Black Tom|Victor LaValle||46932536] and enjoy a complex and moving horror story instead. ( )

This is going to be short. This story was terrible and it has Lovecraft's racism and xenophobia on full display. I think if he could have torched New York and wiped it clean of those he saw as inferior he would have.

The Horror at Red Hook tells a story taking place in the 1920s with a New York police detective named Thomas Malone. Malone is left disturbed by an incident that left several people dead.

Lovecraft then works backwards telling how a rich and eccentric old man named Robert Suydam. Suydam ends up buying property in Red Hook and people are disappearing. The police believe something nefarious is happening, but can't prove it. And then suddenly Suydam seems to be slowly reverse aging and marries a young 20 year old distant relative of his.

The story jumps around too much to really get a handle on the story. Lovecraft doesn't include the Chulthu mythos at all. Instead it seems to be about human sacrifice and Lilith. I don't get what caused Suydam to be turned against unless that was the plan all along. And the ending with Malone being buried after falling into another portal and witnessing what Suydam was up to was pretty lame. The story honestly put me to sleep for a few minutes and I was not happy when I woke up and realized I still want done right this story. It is short though and I finished in it about 25 minutes (nap included). ( )

The Horror at Red Hook by H.P. Lovecraft is an audio book I requested and the review is voluntary. I did like the story, not as much as I did when I was a teen. I am sure this was terrifying in the late 1920's when it was first published. It was creepy now, I can't imagine then when they weren't shown realistic horror movies and shows daily like we are. I thought the narration was very good and added to the story. I forgot to add that in to my initial rating so I will add that now since this is a rating for the overall book. It is funny how the tastes change as you grown older. As a teen I craved all things Lovecraft, maybe that is why I am so warped! LOL ( )
