    This Lovecraft classic is a must-have for every fan of classic terror. When a geologist leads an expedition to the Antarctic plateau, his aim is to find rock and plant specimens from deep within the continent. The barren landscape offers no evidence of any life form - until they stumble upon the ruins of a lost civilization. Strange fossils of creatures unknown to man lead the team deeper, where they find carved stones dating back millions of years. But it is their discovery of the terrifying city of the Old Ones that leads them to an encounter with an untold menace.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I did not like this book. It is like reading a report. Clinical and boring. I did not check the publication date but something tells me this book is old because it reads like a b movie from the 70s. I feel like someone edited out all the interesting stuff. I need more details on what is happening. There is a story here but it's like the writer got board and glossed over stuff to get it done.


    What was most disappointing about H. P. Lovecraft’s story?

    The story went noware. Also how did they read what was on the walls of the caves?


    What about Edward Herrmann’s performance did you like?

    He reads the sotry fine and has a good voice.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from At the Mountains of Madness [Blackstone Edition]?

    a lot of the details on the exact locations they were at.


    Any additional comments?

    You need much more details on that happened to the people at the camp that were killed. there needed to be interaction and conversation between the characters not a report of those things. It's fine to start the book that way but then you need to tanssion to being there.
