Llewellyn Worldwide – Necronomicon: Product Summary

However, The Necronomicon Files originally published in and later revised and expanded in prove fairly conclusively that, The Necronomicon is a work of fiction invented by Lovecraft for use hyson his fiction. The book follows Alhazred from his life in an Arabian court through his banishment and discovery of the dark Cthulian gods, his death and resurrection, and his eventual mastery necronommicon the black arts. Let it be said at the beginning that this is not a book for children.

Alhazred is long for non-epic fantasy almost pages and has several slow points. If the book were shorter then I would give it a higher rating, but as its length it tends to outweigh its worth.

While his Necronomicon contains an odd mixture of technical and narrative writing it is interesting, informative, and often surprisingly humorous. On the other hand Alhazred tends to be overly dry and serious.

While is sentence structure is decent, it is not stellar, and his paragraph structure ranges from good to poor and back again through the course of the book. In Alhazred Tyson tends to be overly wordy.

Alhazred is the main character of the book, which necronomlcon be obvious, and tends to be very dark and brooding although given what happens to him at the beginning this is understandable.

There are a number of minor character, some of whom lighten the mood of the book, while others push it further into the dismal. While most of his characters are well-built, and show strong character growth, they also tend to be annoying or unbelievable at necronomicoj.

This is where Tyson shines. Alhazred presents itself as a fictional biography. As I mentioned earlier, there are several points in the book where it becomes unnecessarily slow. In fact there were times when I felt like I was slogging my way through. This pacing trouble makes the book difficult to read. Alhazred has some commentary on the necessity of pain and the nature of evil, but all in all this is not a book that you read for the incredible insights.
