It’s been a long time since I read a book I was enjoying as slowly as I read Lovecraft Country, but I didn’t want it to end.But then the ending! Oh, man, the ending was perfect. What is a Lovecraftian Horror in the face of an American Horror?
I’m especially going to be thinking about Ruby for a long time. I found the resolution to her character deeply troubling and I’m not sure what to make of it, which, obviously, is what the story intends.
But I really appreciated the humor of it, the horror of it, and the arguments about family and community that it makes.
