The Simon Necronomicon
The Simon Necronomicon ( the Necronomicon by Simon )

A book review by Jonathan D Rage

I suppose the first thing I have to address here is the validity of the book and the idea of calling it the Necronomicon…

Is this book fake ?

That’s actually a harder question to answer than you might think , I have to say that the content of the book seems to be quite valid , however I do still question the authenticity of the story of the “Mad Arab” and the mysterious Simon.

The spells , incantations and even origin and reference to history does indeed seem very valid and very sound , in fact I fully believe that this book can answer many questions about magic , history and mythology , its even a valid read if your deeply interested in vampire mythology .

This is a book intended for only the hardcore magical enthusiast and those who have a very and serious interest in such subjects , from start to finish it’s a very hard and difficult read …

The style of writing seems to have no flow and is very disjointed , its like reading a combination of a math text book , the combined works of William Shakespeare and the old testament all rolled into one , while being written in a very disjointed style …but just not as interesting .

I have to admit that the biggest failing of the book is simply that’s its extremely boring and I have to admit I found it a true labour to read , I could only get through a few chapters at a time without falling asleep . <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarrassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->

Yet even with that said I have to admit that this is an extremely interesting and I’ll even go as far as to say important book…

The spells contained should be recognisable by any magical practitioner , but even at that these are spells that I’d never use , its ceremonial magic at the highest level and its just not something to be messed around with , some of the spells require a lot of commitment , time and even money .

A committed magician could well make use of them , but its not something to be dabbled with nor something a novice should use .

All in all I’d have to say it’s a hard …yet extremely informative book that deserves a place in any magic enthusiasts collection , for reference if nothing else .

4 /5 <!-- s:star: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/star.gif" alt=":star:" title="star" /><!-- s:star: -->
