“History of the Necronomicon” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

The text tells how the Necronomicon was penned by the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred under the title Al-Azif. Alhazred died after being devoured by invisible demons in front of a terrified crowd. His work was subsequently suppressed, though survived. No original Arabic copies survive, nor any Greek translations. 

Before getting into this short story I thought that I wouldn’t like it because of the theme of this short story. But after reading it, I need to say that I loved it.

The writing style is so amazing in this one, and it screams that H.P Lovecraft wrote it and I love that. The writing style really had build the atmosphere in this one because it was so good.

The plot itself here isn’t really my type what I’ve enjoyed it enough to give it 4 stars. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the plot but I still appreciate it and found it interesting. 

For the most part this short story is nothing more than just a cute little short story with an eerie vibe in it.

I give this short story 4 / 5
