"The Book" is an unfinished short story by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft.
I changed the story, but the main idea is the same: A young man finds an ancient, dangerous book, which can give him power to visit strange dimensions.

I hope you enjoy it,

Edit: Thanks everyone :)
About the story: The animation is similiar to the book until he wakes up in the other dimension. After that I changed it, in the book he returns safely to his room.

I'll definitely make more animations based on lovecraft or with a similiar atmosphere. I'm also planning a strange, dark-themed series.

I like it. Art style was good. music was good. story was good. I think I've got a shiny 10 for you here, mister.
The story seemed like it wasn't quite finished, but that's just because it's based on an unfinished short story. It's basic Lovecraft all right, and the gist of the message is "forbidden knowledge will lead to misery", unless I've completely missed the point.
My point is, you made what you set out to do and you did it perfectly.

Thank you, as an abid Lovecraft fan I have to say I love this adaptation true the story was a bit different but, you made it your own and it was done masterfully I'm glad someone still appreciates the origins of true horror and so i ask that you do more of lovecrafts work lol. Ofcourse, that is just a hope.
