One of the real strengths of this book is how it greatly resembles old travel diaries/memoirs and 19th century scientific primers. The language is precise in scientific detail, yet personal, too.

And even though the whole concept of elder ones and their great, ancient cities (and even some of the science) is totally preposterous, it’s so damn entertaining that I really get freaked out while reading it.
