Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft

Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft

by Joe Hill (Writer), and Gabriel Rodríguez (Artist)


Soooo before I even start, I want to let you know that you should probably disregard my review because I dislike horror and I only read this because it was my book club’s pick for April. I know a lot of people love this book and of the 8 of us at book club I was the only one that didn’t like it. I also didn’t rate it on Goodreads because I felt that it wasn’t fair to rate this book so low, when its 100% personal preference why I didn’t like it.

I’m not a huge fan of murder and mystery and horror and child trauma and this book has all of it. I also didn’t really like the art style, but it did seem to fit with the story. The only thing I did like about this book was that it was short (it is a graphic novel) so I didn’t have to do too much reading.

I did try to like it, I really did, but its just not for me. But I’m glad I gave it a chance, if only to say I did it! Next month’s book is His Majesty’s Dragon and I am super excited for that so hopefully I have a better review!!

  1. I have never read this series, although I’m a big fan of horror so I’d probably love it. I’m glad you’ll have something more to your taste to read next!

  2. It sounds like this just wasn’t a good fit for you, and having read it, I can see why! This is not a great choice for readers who don’t enjoy horror, especially since the graphic novel format makes it all so, well, graphic. (I have read books 1 – 5 of this series and enjoyed them, but somehow just never got around to finishing). Better luck with your next book club book!
