Not the best, but not bad by any means. I enjoyed the writing style, but the editing on the kindle version leaves much to be desired.

If you like H. P. Lovecraft and the Lovecraft Genre, you will enjoy this book. If you have not read Lovecraft, don't start here, start with those stories and then return to this book later. The author's take on the Necronomicon is that it is largely, but not exclusively, a narrative written by Abdul Alhazred (and annotated by others), parts of which have been lost over time. This strategy works well and creates the impression of a real autobiographical story. All the Lovecraft references are worked in well and do not feel forced. I look forward to the next volume. Cthulhu fhtagn!

This book is a fiery jewel in Cthulhu's crown!

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!

Not what I was expecting, but a nicely done Lovecraft pastiche, nevertheless. Oddly enough, the style reminded me more of Robert E. Howard, which is not a bad thing. I hope the author does follow through with a sequel.

Kent Kelly's Necronomicon is an excellent addition to the long list of "Necronomicon"s on the market. It follows more of a story approach than a grimoire which was a pleasant surprise. The writing seems pretty believable, excepting a few paragraphs that sound like they're written by Kent rather than Abd... descriptions from a historical perspective that just sounds a little too complete and modern. Aside from this, my only complaint is that when I think of ancient texts from the mythos, I imagine illustrations of mystical symbols, and unfathomable creatures, which were sadly missing. In the same vein, the formatting is somewhat underwhelming. The ebook just seems like it could have used a little better production value.

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.

If one is a fan of the Cthulhu mythos, a DIE-HARD fan, an obsessed fan who lives for anything Lovecraftian, you'll like this book. I have to say, it is quite a... something. I really wanted to like this, to finish it but it was SO freakin' tedious. A couple of chapters in and it just becomes boring.

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.

In all fairness, it is a good book...but in my opinion not as well written as Alhazred from Donald Tyson. Having read the latter first, I found myself missing the excitement and the broad horizons of Tyson's book.
