I don't read a whole lot unfortunately, and it's technically a short story but it's my favorite anyway. H.P. Lovecraft's Re-animator, coz I love mad scientists/bad guys and it's great to have both as a main character. (well, it's told from his assistants POV but still it's basically talking about him the whole time) I liked his style of writing in that story and also the two characters. didn't care much for the ending, but then again I rarely do

Oh man Reanimator is amazing. H.P. Lovecraft himself hated it, however. He was getting paid by the word, I believe, and felt like he just wrote some crap. But I really loved it.

Oh yeah I remember that!! sucks he didn't like it, I loved it a lot too and it's the only like, "mad scientist" thing I know of that's actually GOOD. I loved his description of West, you got a clear mental image even with only a few words. I wish in the movie they would've like.. followed the book.. even slightly. I thought Jeffrey Combs was a good choice to play the character, it's just a shame it's not anything like the book. it'd be awesome if somebody would do it properly, but I think the 80s one is too much of a campy classic now for anybody to try anything. I've been meaning to buy the Psycho novel, has anybody read that?

This is all without looking anything up, I'm going to try to recall precisely.

The Reanimator was a penny dreadful that Lovecraft wrote, he did it just for the money as I recall.

It's from the point of view of Doctor Herbert West's assistant. West is obsessed with reanimating the dead. Various thing happen. Expulsion from university, signing onto the military to acquire more corpses, etc, and the assistant follows him through it all. For whatever bizarre reason.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend you read it, but at least give the summary somewhere a read. I love the concept and know the plot, but I never sat down and made myself read it.

That's the weird thing, I'm told that people dislike it. It's not Lovecrafty enough.

The Reanimator has very Frankenstein-y feels.

Yeah, thats very true.

But instead of wanting you to feel bad for the monsters, it directs more to feel uncomfortable towards West.
