HP Lovecraft’s short story “The Rats in the Walls” is an affecting piece of literature that differs from his usual Cthulhu mythos; instead, it treads a bit of Edgar Allan Poe’s territory in its psychological examination of a man who has become obsessed with the pitter-patter of rats walking in his walls. However, it also contains Lovecraft’s themes of familial curses and insanity that he found to be a driving force in his works. Ryne presents a reading of this classic Lovecraft story; forgive the quality as it’s his first audiobook.
