    " Was my introduction to philosophy, I can't believe he was only 22. Colin Wilson is a force to behold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raegan Butcher | 1/26/2014

    " Colin Wilson explains why men of "genius" suffer angst. As such there are interesting portraits of Dostoyevsky, T.E Lawrence, Van Gogh, etc, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Brawn | 1/18/2014

    " A good read, but heavy going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yuri | 1/12/2014

    " It's amazing to me that someone so young could show such fluency in Philosophy, Literature and Religion as this guy does, wow! I, on the other hand, am not as fluent on his language and texts as he is, so I cannot begin to pretend reading this book was a 'walk in the park', and it'll probably demand an additional reading some years from now when I've gotten in touch with some of the works he mentions here and who captured my interest. Plus, as he says himself in the postface, this is only the beginning, the first volume of this philosophy of his which he calls 'phenomenological existencialism'. Ask me again in some years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Corvine | 1/10/2014

    " I read this book in my late teens it was very useful in pointing me in the right direction... in fact many directions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krishna Giri | 1/10/2014

    " This book was written for me. Only Mr. Wilson wasn't aware of that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Pereno | 12/12/2013

    " Everyone should read this; a perfect thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alan | 11/30/2013

    " I read this when I was very young and it made a great impression on me, pointing me to books by Beckett and Camus etc. But I have dipped into sebsequent books by Wilson and found them awful. I don't dare go back and re-read this as I know it would disappoint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Keith Mcintosh | 11/27/2013

    " Disappointing. Outdated. Some interesting ideas but not exactly rigorous. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carl | 8/31/2013

    " Eh. Most of these ideas are too familiar. I enjoyed "Introduction to the New Existentialism" a lot more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 3/26/2013

    " This book and Demian tie for the most amazing Psychological/Existential books I've ever read. For anyone who has struggled with their ideas of self or motivations of isolation, you might want to take a look at this. I will read it again and I don't do that often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Infidel Castro | 1/9/2013

    " A tremendous book dealing with existentialism! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon Hutchinson | 8/30/2012

    " The book set my reading habits for 5 years when I was in my twenties. Love it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caelin | 3/31/2012

    " ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER WRITTEN "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug | 9/14/2011

    " This book meant so much to me as a teenager growing up in the 1960's. I actually used it almost as a bibliography - reading many of and about many of the people mentioned in the book. Doug "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nate | 6/8/2011

    " A great book with a whole lot of information on other great books and other great Authors...it takes a specific character found in other books (someone who does not fit in with socioty standards, but must ultimatly co-exist within socioty)..an excellent read!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 3/28/2011

    " This is one of those books that makes you want to read a bunch of other books. Mostly Dostoevsky. It was a romp in the waters of the outsider in literature as seen through the works of DH Lawrence, aforementioned Dostoevsky, Hemingway, Sartre, and others. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 2/13/2011

    " I found peers to relate to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/12/2011

    " Very atmospheric. A nightmare inducing read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 anguinea | 1/27/2011

    " Spooky dark magic, madness, existentialism...I can see how this has influenced so many modern horror writers. Also, I now understand what critics mean when they refer to writing as "Lovecraftian": Thick and chewy overwritten descriptions abound!

    Better than I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dyanna | 4/28/2010

    " Very creepy, and very good. Gothic and demonic monsters as told in the early 1900's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 9/20/2007

    " This was actually my first time exposed to either of these stories, and let me tell you that this audio format is excellent. The reader had the perfect voice for portraying these erie tales of horrors from beyond our world. I can't wait to try volume 2. "

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of work—three short novels and about sixty short stories—has nevertheless exercised a broad influence on subsequent writing in the field. In fact, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the twentieth century.
