See 1 question about Necronomicon…. Lists with This Book. Jun 28, DavidO rated it liked it. I suppose a lot of research went into this book, but it is far from what it should be. Instead of being scared out of my mind, I found myself bored out of my mind. It doesn’t even appear to be bound in human flesh, so, come on! Mar 18, Michel Avenali rated it really liked it.
This book is a primer of sorts to the mythos and a great starting point for those looking for clarification and more information behind Lovecraft’s Elder Gods and major themes.
The mythos at this point is very vast, encompassing not only Lovecraft’s own stories, but contributions over the years by myriad authors who have delved into it in anthologies and short story collections. This book is the first time to my knowledge that the story and contents behind the Necronomicon a book referenced to and alluded in many stories is fully fleshed out.
It follows the life and travels of the Necromancer Alhazred, and through this narrative it touches upon every important point and character in the mythos. From detailed descriptions and spheres of influence of each Elder God, to some fascinating background and history on esoteric and mystical locations in our world and beyond, this book is a great companion for any aspiring fan.
I really enjoyed how this book replicates the mood and atmosphere of the mythos, while reading this book you will be disturbed, and very creeped out. That sense of dread and foreboding is what makes the mythos so much fun, it literally creeps into a primal fear inside us, which tywon in my opinion what great horror should inspire to do. If you’re new to the mythos, or a long time fan, this book is a must read and will not disappoint. Nov 29, David rated it liked it Shelves: It was fun, but not the best edition to the fan fiction world of H.
If you enjoy H. May 24, Phil rated it really liked it Shelves: A writer on the occult turns his talent to the most famous fictional tome and writes it. Bringing together the threads of HPL and friends many stories.
Aug 02, Jody Mena added it Shelves: Fantastically dark and thrilling! This was a wonderful reworking and exposition of the world painted in the writings of H. I loved the way the book was organized as a sort of travel guide crossed with a narrative; as I read, I felt as though I was right there with Alhazred, and also as though I could go to the places described, see the shocking and wonderous sites depicted, and do these shocking, fascinating and monumental things if I so desired.
This fascination, coupled with the v Fantastically dark and thrilling! This fascination, coupled with the very casual way in which various atrocities are treated such as human sacrifice, torture, cannibalism, etcand indeed the very casual way the wonderous aspects of the journey are treated, project a feeling of conspiracy, as though you’re being let in on arcane secrets.
Necronomicon: The Wanderings of Alhazred
Basically, if you let yourself get drawn into the book, it’s a wild and chilling ride for the imagination. Fans of Lovecraft’s stories tjson particularly enjoy it, but even someone who’s never read Lovecraft could have a great time with this book! Jun 05, Peter rated it liked it Shelves: Nfcronomicon see with mine own eyes the change from its glossy wetness to a satin finish, its heady vapours clouded my mind.
EE-YAI the second coat is done. What is this afore me, a fair maiden stands with paint for the bathroooooom, aaaaaaaaah. Really the occult section? Upon its back it is listed as occult and paraded as such, shame on you llewelyn this is bad fan fiction.
Dec 23, Amanda rated it really liked it Shelves: A rather nice approximation of material that might be found within the Necronomicon. For my tastes, it was dinald bit light, seemingly written by a polite cannibal rather than a maddened necromancer, but a very nice addition to any Lovecraft fan’s library.
Jun 16, Jake rated it dona,d liked necronomicom. Some parts were really interesting, others read too much like source material for a role playing game. In the end I kept my sanity, and that is not a good thing.
It’s really good for what it is, but the man isn’t Lovecraft and anybody expecting Lovecraft is going to be let down. Son dos productos distintos.
Sep 23, Samuel rated it liked it. I picked up Tyson’s Necronomicon from Barnes and Nobel, wanting necrojomicon see what all the fuss was about among the occult community.
The story, as I understand it, was originally crafted by H. Lovecraft and doesn’t disappoint as an interesting, fictional story about the journey of the “Mad Arab” as he travels through the middle eastern desert in search of esoteric, magical knowledge. The tale, while a little hard to read at some times, is fairly entertaining and a good read for anyone wanting to rea I picked up Tyson’s Tyon from Barnes and Nobel, wanting to see what all the fuss odnald about among the occult community.
The tale, while a little hard to read at some times, is fairly entertaining and a good read necrohomicon anyone wanting to read something strange and unusual. Nov 14, Mellissa rated it really liked it. As others have said, if you enjoy Lovecraft’s works, the Cthulu mythos, or general varying mythologies, you may like this. It wasn’t a difficult read, but it was a bit slow. It’s a journey, but not a story. With the small stories throughout it was still more about providing information.
I did enjoy it though, and I may not read it cover to cover again, but will grab it off the shelf now, and again to reread some of my favorite bits. A fictional representation of what the Necroonmicon was This was an interesting boo, but over-long. Sep 24, John R. Hello, this is a very interesting and entertaining story that is almost a summary of the first book.
Dec 14, Cora Snow rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oct 12, Liam Griffin rated it it was ok. Maybe the tale is too long. It has an air of authenticity and conforms to Lovecraft’s hints and descriptions.
However it is not scary, not even a little bit. Feb 09, Alexander Collas rated it liked it. Boy thson was a hard read.
I enjoyed it but it is a bit of a slog to get through. This is an exceptional effort from Tyson. Regardless of your views of the Lovecraftian mythos and its place with occult work, there is a real value in this work.
Tyson analyses the seven Older Ones in a thorough comparison against other deific forms that is well researched and ultimately thought provoking. The latter half of the work is a fictional journey in pursuit of wisdom from the magi. Whilst it is fictional, it has a possible value as a series of initiatory guided meditations towards the This is an exceptional effort from Tyson.
Whilst it is fictional, it has a possible value as a series of initiatory guided meditations towards the realisation of greater knowledge. Similar tales exist within initiatory rites and alchemical tales in many texts, although if you are drawn to the Lovecraftian, then this may unlock aspects of your being that you were previously unaware of.
