I was enormously disappointed with this book. I thought there'd be some articles and explanations but there's virtually none of that in this book. The font was difficult and sometimes impossible to read. I had to scan through a lot of blank pages to get to anything. I don't mind the humor. In fact, I wanted some humor but, well, I was left wanting!

I expected more because of the reviews. I didn't get what I expected...!

This little book with a huge font is great for a light romp through some dark territory. Not too bad, its references are a little dated, but still fun to read.

Everything you need to know (and a few things you weren't meant to) about His Squidliness and Mr. Lovecraft. Quippy and fun to read, this is Ken Hite rollicking in his element.

Do you like Cthulhu? Do you like to laugh? Are you a noob to this entire topic of Cthulhu? Then this book is for you. Join the cultists worldwide, today! Don't be left in the dark.

This book is great, my hat's off to Kenneth Hite. The illustrations are hilarious, the text is very informative, and humorous. It brings a new age of enlightenment for both old, and new fans of Lovecraft, in short humorous bursts that are very digestible. I highly recommend to anyone interested in Lovecrafts' Cthulhu, or anyone who just wants to know what all the fuss is about. I found the Media lists to be very enlightening on all things Cthulhu in many different forms of media, from movies, to music, to video games.

WARNING: This product contains the Elder Sign. Viewing of the Elder Sign may cause Sleep Deprivation, Horrific Nightmares, and sudden artistic impulses to make figurines of the sleeping God Cthulhu. This review was paid for by Cthulhu/Cheney 2012, and Cthulhu Cults Worldwide Inc. We now return you to your regularly scheduled dream.

If you take your Cthulhu mythos really, really seriously, this book isn't for you. But if mixing the Great Old Ones with cheeky humor and a heaping helping of scorn for August Derleth appeals to you, stop reading this review and just buy this accursed PDF. (I mean "accursed" in a good way.) Kenneth Hite, undisputed master of all things Lovecraftian, takes readers on a rollicking good tour through the Cthulhu mythos and other corners of Lovecraft's eldritch universe. The book has more nuggets of actual good information than your average scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough has chocolate chips, and the tone is anything but tenebrous. Where else, I ask you, can you find half a dozen different "canonical" pronunciations of "Cthulhu," fourteen misspellings of the blasphemous name, and a top 40 countdown of Cthulhu-related music, not to mention Drew Pocza's whimsical drawings? Hite writes with amazing verve, zest, and foetid humor (or is that "fetid humour"?). In the time it's taken you to read this far in the review, you could have already covered the first four or five pages of the book, and had a lot more fun. On the negative side, I must admit that, despite my enjoyment of this book, I could find no reasonable way to work the words "rugose" or "squamous" into this review without making up libelous and completely unfounded statements about the author's physical appearance. So just buy this book already, and read it at once. Or Cthulhu will eat you.
