Oct 10, Kimberly rated it it was amazing Shelves: The two adventurous men plan to traverse through its whole length, following the steps of the ancient Roman emperors, The Willows is Algernon Blackwood’s most famous story, and one which H. Like many such stories, it starts somewhat slowly, establishing first that picture of normal life from which we must soon, and by gradations, deviate beyond recall.
Personally I am not a big fan of monologues centered around a person’s thoughts, when they are trying to analyze a situation.
The Willows are, of course, another cool trait of the story. What a beautifully written atmospheric and creepy story this was.
