Los Sauces : Algernon Blackwood :

It must be me, because everyone else is giving this short novel a 4 or 5 stars, but I honestly fail to see the appeal to this book, I found it mildly creepy, mostly boring and repetitive. Sep 27, Albertoagra rated it it was ok Shelves: It was an okay book. I am not use to the writing style and it took a bit to get into it.

The book had its moments of keeping me glued to the pages, but other moments blackwod waiting for something to happen. For me, there was no scare factor. Only giving it two stars. The only scary thing about this book was when it put me to sleep and Kos dropped my Kindle. If I had a book-shelf titled “Sedative”, then this book would be on it.

Nice style of writing though. I only read this because HP Lovecraft apparently thought this guy was the bomb. Its really beautifully written but not at all scary or creepy. At least I didn’t find it so. Its possible that the swuces elements are just really dated. I will always be enamoured by willow trees. Algernom, I’ll never look at sand the same way again Never read this classic. To be honest, the story never really grabbed me. This is some weird sort of sxuces horror story, not bad but it failed to truly pull me in and thus unnerve me.

Sep 30, Vaclav K. Bit monotonous, but an effective slow build of tension nonetheless. This is the second story I’ve read of Blackwood. The first being The Wendigo. There is a lot of similarities between the two stories, so that saucfs seemed to be a common theme shared between the two works. In both stories, the protagonists ventured into the wilderness with a partner s and encountering an unknown threat.


The main character in The Willows and his partner, a Swede, came to a small island where the currents ran strong on all sides, and the willows grew thick. At nights, there were This is the second story I’ve read of Blackwood.

At nights, there were strange sounds outside apgernon tents, and visions of large, strange beings that was assumed residents of a different world. Like The Wendigo, there isn’t much in term of confrontations between man and the supernatural, most of the dread comes from the kos assessments of the events happening around him. It is in the saucees of suggestions that give the entities the power of mystery.

Sure, the willows grew thick and seemed to conceal things, and they did seem to move closer day by day. Yet it was in the narrator’s shoes that we dared to imagine all the hidden horrors lurking within the thick.

Lovecraft would use this method later in his writing. With that said, the narration bogs down the story to a great degree. The main character’s assessments and imaginations, done so excessively, makes one wondered if the plot resides inside the narrator’s head and sauce in the external events.

Sort of like a story of musings. Although very similar, I find this work much algerhon than the Wendigo, which, despite suffering from the same issues, I actually enjoyed. Two friends go on a canoe trip down the Danube Algsrnon. As the river starts flooding, they decide to camp on an island. Soon, the narrator realizes that something is dreadfully wrong with the island. I have always been a fan of the horror genre.

Not the bloody, gory kind but the subtle, psychological kind. In this story, the author has imparted ominous qualities to natural elements.

The river takes on an almost-human persona, the characters are terrorized by the raging wind algernonn there is something a Two friends go on a canoe trip down the Danube River. The river takes on an almost-human persona, the characters are terrorized by the raging wind and there is something awfully wrong with the willow bushes.

In short, he builds a great atmosphere. After seeing the great reviews and ratings this book has, I expected to completely creeped out. I guess I was hoping for more creepiness. But, I don’t understand why it’s on so many lists of the best horror stories.

I alyernon his style of writing. It’s very descriptive, classic in a way.

Los Sauces

And, I must admit now when I’m outside letting the dog out at night and hear the trees blowing in the wind, I think of the book. So, I suppose in a way, the book haunts me.


Only not in a super creepy way, which again, I suppose is good. I found this book really weird, but I liked it.

Personally I am not a big fan of monologues centered around a person’s thoughts, when they are trying to analyze a situation. It was for that reason that I had some difficulty staying interested in it. Even though it was a short read, it took me forever to finish it. It’s beautifully written, but in my opinion there is not much besides that.

It lacks story, suspense, meaning and sense.

Like a beautiful song where you don’t care what the lyrics say. An anachronistically early appearance of the two-guys-smoke-dope-on-an-island-and-draw-interesting-conclusions trope, a full eighty years before the trope really took off in the late 80’s. This is not horror.

A very difficult read for me. I found it algefnon slow and tedious and just couldn’t appreciate the storyline. Definitely not for me, but I can understand why it would appeal to some. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Not allot to comment algeron this – would be fun if it was assigned in a class or something. It started out really blsckwood, wonderful imagery, spooky. Then sort of petered out and ended nowhere. Maybe shouldn’t be horror genre.

Josh rated it it was ok Oct 31, Barbara rated it it was ok Sep 08, C’Trese Joseph rated it it was ok Jul 17, Los Sauces 5 9 Sep 07, Blackwood was born in Shooter’s Hill today part of south-east London, but then part of northwest Kent and educated at Wellington College.

His father was a Post Office administrator who, according to Peter Penzoldt, “though not devoid of genuine good-heartedness, had appallingly narrow religious ideas. In his late thirties, he moved back to England blacckwood started to write qlgernon of the supernatural. He was very successful, writing at least ten original collections of short stories and eventually appearing on both radio and television to tell them.

He also wrote fourteen novels, several children’s books, and a number of plays, most of which were produced but not published. He was blackwiod avid lover of aalgernon and the outdoors, and many of his stories reflect this.

English writer of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, of whom Lovecraft wrote: Unfortunately, Blackwood, who was familiar with Lovecraft’s work, failed to return the compliment. As he told Peter Penzoldt, he found “spiritual terror” missing in his young admirer’s writing, something he considered all-important in his own.
