    3.5 stars. An aesthetically pleasing, eye-catching book. For players of the Arkham Horror board game, here's a look at some of your favorite investigators backstories. The stories contained within are brief snippets of the Mythos while primarily focusing on the environs/ locations of Arkham as depicted in the game. As a media tie-in, this is an entertaining diversion for amateur/new Mythos fans, but for a better overview, I'd recommend most readers start with HPL and work out from there. 3.5 stars.

    Even if the stories are not all that great, this is a usefull book for the rpg Call of Cthulhu. It depicts Arkham perfectly with evocative stories and awesome illustrations. This is one of the most beautiful book I ever read for sure!

    Exactly what I hoped for: Expectations are important for this book. It's half art book, half gateway drug and half short stories. Three halves cause I can't tell which is the most important aspect. It provides background, motivation and characterization for most of the 55 arkham investigators.

I say most cause 5 or so stories are deadly dull and contribute little to nothing to the character (the journalist) or the characters themselves are just uninteresting (both college professors, the secretary...). Most stories are good to great, with highlights such as the Lawyer, the Expedition Leader and the Gangster. It sets the tone and expectations for the games expertly and therefore it's a great contribution to the Arkham universe. It did exactly what I expected and I'm really glad I got this one. 4'5/5

    A fine book, within the limits of what it is: a collection of very short (3-4 pages) stories about specific characters - more character types, really - in an adventury, pulp-like Cthlhu Mythos world. I picked it up because I'm running a Call of Cthulhu tabletop RPG game and wanted some good characterizations and references, and it's great for that. As a work of literature, people would probably find it very repetitive.

As a work of literature, people would probably find it very repetitive. Also, since these character presumably would go on to figure in the game, the stories are mostly about the barest touches of their encounters with the Cthulhu mythos, rather than full-blown descents into madness, action, and terror. The art, it should be added, is GREAT. Very atmospheric, works fantastically well with the stories; likewise the general artistic design and execution of the entire book.

    My brother sent me this as a birthday gift this year. Appropriate, as he’s the one who got us hooked on Eldritch Horror a number of years ago. Since then, he’s moved on to the Arkham Horror Card Game and we’ve moved on to Mansions of Madness, but whichever one(s) you play, these stories add some fun background flavor to your favorite investigators.

    I've always been a huge fan of Fantasy Flight Games and the world of Arkham Horror. This book is a nice showpiece to supplement the Arkham Horror Universe. I enjoyed the short backstories of the various investigators that inhabit Arkham and I really liked the artwork. The quality of the stories is a bit uneven, but mostly enjoyable. Great for any fan of the board games tied to these characters! I've always been a huge fan of Fantasy Flight Games and the world of Arkham Horror.

    I did expect a bit more from an expensive book. The artwork is pretty good but the investigator stories are a bit weak and did not give me any additional insight into their characters. There was no attempt to link the narrative in any way either.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this. A fun short story for each investigator in the Arkham Horror games? What a great idea! It did leave me wanting more. It would be really cool to have a volume 2 with another story for each investigator!

    Was an entertaining read for a fan of the Arkham Horror series of Board games. A collection of short stories in a world of Lovecraftian terror.

    While the idea of getting the back stories for all the characters in the game is interesting, this book ended up being pretty dull. Since the fate of the characters is in the hands of the people playing the game, none of these stories has a resolution - its a ton of stories with no endings, which makes for a frustrating read.
