Hobs Review of Cthulhu Armageddon by C.T. Phipps

Have you ever read anything by H.P. Lovecraft? how about listened to one of the radio plays by The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society?   No?   Well why the hell not? Go and read them!!     It’s ok I’ll wait…

Ok that’s better. Now remember how the “Things”  that came and everyone dies?  Well not everyone did die. A few small pockets of humanity survived for around one hundred years, and one of these Pockets is called United States Remnants.

The story  is told in first person through the eyes of John Henry Booth a Remnant Recon squadron leader. He is kind of unlikable the first peep we get in his head. Then his rage at seeing a child harmed made him instantly relate-able to me. He goes out of his way to help kids and  slaves. For the latter its more so he can kill the slavers, but that is still a good thing right?.

If you took some Lovecraft tossed in a bit of Fallout 3 and a pinch of Clint Eastwood you would get those three things  mixed together (lol I need Sleep) Actually It felt like I was reading a lost Lovecraft book. Which I suppose could be high praise or condemnation depending. But I say it in praise. The disturbing parts where DISTURBInG.
But what I really loved about this book was the unexpected humor. Many  times I laughed so much I had to rewind because I missed something. I call it unexpected humor  because the funniest moments in the book are when they talk about a dead Private,  when people are trying to shoot John, and when he tells Jessica how fucked up the situation is.

Cthulhu Armageddon is average lenght Audio book  Around 8 hours.  Jeffrey Kafer did an excellent job Narrating and C.T. Phips did a great job writing. I really did enjoy it more then I thought I would I give Cthulhu Armageddon by C.T. Phipps                            4.5 out of 5 stars.
