I’m a reader of books on Kindle and on Audible. I consider them both reading, but I know not everyone agrees.
Which has nothing to do with this post, but just putting it out there.
At any rate, I downloaded this book from the mystery category — I don’t know what drew me to it — I read everything mystery from cozies with cats to true crime — so I have no idea what I saw in the description that drew me in. But it did.
And then I started reading it — first death was a drowning in a car with no water. I began to think this was an ‘odd’ mystery (my mother didn’t raise no dummy, right) and as I went through it it just became the oddest book ever.
It was called Carter and Lovecraft btw — and through research I discovered that Lovecraft:
Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American writer who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. He was virtually unknown and published only in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, but he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre.
Well who knew?
I just find it ODD that I found a book listed under mystery and found a whole new genre, author and apparently lifestyle!
If you live long enough I guess you’ll know everything, right?
BTW, the book was an interesting read — I don’t see myself becoming a Lovecraft follower — but it was a quick & compelling read. It was also ODD.
