Honestly, I cannot stress this enough! It is a dark masterpiece by an expert storyteller with a breathtaking understanding of HP Lovecraft, Robert W. Chambers and Edgar Allan Poe. It is at once haunting and heartbreaking, filled with sophisticated allusions, symbolism, foreshadowing, metaphors and nuances that utterly floored me.
Dreamlike and disturbingly surreal, this forbidden tome is as visionary as it is achingly poetic. I got a real sense that the so-called "Mad Arab" Abd al-Azrad was really speaking to me about the soul-churning tragedy that was his life. He sought the love of a girl and found only madness, despair and eternal damnation. This book is his cautionary tale to humanity.
A panorama of the Middle East of the 8th century was brought to life in chillingly realistic detail. It was as if Arabian Nights with all its supernatural elements were crystallized into being right before my eyes. The Old Dark Ones are presented here as well, in all their dark, demonic grandeur, at once cosmic, colossal and apocalyptic.
The author pulls no punches here! This book delves uncomfortably deep and explores the very worst of humanity with unblinking, even clinical intensity. It challenges the core beliefs of all religions everywhere. It unflinchingly questions the very existence of good vs. evil. It explores the philosophy of power and the means by which to acquire it.
It does not shy away from depictions of cruelty and extreme suffering. Any of the worst things you can imagine----betrayal, torture, rape, perversity, maiming, mutilation, murder, even cannibalism!----is represented at some point in this book!Read more ›
As for the story itself... I like it. I was really expecting the somewhat predictable result of Abd's quest to be disappointing, but, despite being predictable, it's well-formulated and creates a great lead-in for the ending. The whole story read like a series of short lovecraftian-horror-meets-fantasy-adventure stories interspersed with bits of behind the scenes info that only the Mad Arab himself should know.This would have made a brilliant horror rpg campaign, and with some slight modification it wouldn't even have to be one-player. I really hope Kent continues this project, perhaps giving more auto-biographical information about Kent's experience in translating such a disturbing work. I also hope to see more revealing side-notes from Dr. John Dee and Clarice Whateley.
This is NOT a story, at least one that is not deeply hidden in the rantings/poetry of a madman.
I'm glad the author did this, it was needed, but I just can't finish it.

Waste of time. Didn't drive me to madness, not one moment of abject unimaginable terror, couldn't even hear the rats in the walls.Published on February 14, 2014 by Ramiro Gomez
I must admit, this was a bit dry. Not like the other version of the necronomicon I'd read in the 80's which made you think it was real.Published on November 15, 2013 by J.K.
