H.P. Lovecraft: Necronomicon Audio Book Summary
In this brilliant new collection of H.P. Lovecraft stories, the audiobook Necronomicon is a must-listen for any true science fiction or horror fan.
The book is a nearly complete compilation of many of Lovecraft’s writings, and runs thick with his signature style blending science fiction with horror. These stories became immensely popular when they were first released throughout the 1920s and 1930s, and ring equally powerful today.
It is the mark of a good science fiction writer to be able to invent stories that remain applicable nearly a century later, as Lovecraft’s vivid imagination portrays a world not ruled obsolete by the advances of modern technology – as many other science fiction writers of his day were.
The Necronomicon gets its title from one of Lovecraft’s own inventions. Originating in Lovecraft’s short story entitled “The Hound,” the necronomicon emerges as a fictional book of magic, and, specifically, dark magic that allows the evils of the world to prevail.
This idea, of a single evil manifesto of magic, was perhaps one of Lovecraft’s greatest legacies, and through the generations many readers have believed the Necronomicon actually exists. It was referenced by numerous other science fiction writers, giving it an aura of verisimilitude and Lovecraft encouraged throughout his career.
Today that belief rings true, but not in the form they might expect.
This is a great audiobook, and one that can easily captivate you for hours on end. The layout of the book is excellent, allowing the reader or listener to break it apart to digest in the short story format, or listen to the collection as a whole to get a glimpse of the overall work of this infamous writer.
The audiobook has already received rave reviews from science fiction and horror-terror fans around the globe, and is destined to impact the lives of millions of readers.
