Género: Universo Lovecraft

He decidido hacer un pequeño parón antes de llegar al ultimo escalón de la torre oscura. No quiero todavía desprenderme del Ka-tet de Roland, así que voy a leer algunos libros entremedias, al menos este que hoy os cuento y otro. No se muy bien como llegué a este libro, pero creo que fue por Juan Gómez-Jurado a cuenta de que estaba a mitad de precio en Amazon.

Sea como fuere, el tema es que los asuntos de terror/thriller que tienen que ver con Lovecraft y su universo, me suelen ser muy atractivos y ya van cayendo varios en los últimos tiempos, como “Los Nombres Muertos“, “Infierno Nevado” o “Las puertas de R’Lyeh“.

necronomicon 3

Esta vez lo que tenemos es una historia centrada en la búsqueda y los poderes del Necronomicon, resultando que es real y no solo una invención de H.P. Lovecraft, quien por cierto tiene un cameo en el libro. Así acompañaremos a un periodista en horas bajas, que recibe por parte de un millonario, el encargo de localizar el Necronomicon a cambio de solucionar de raíz los problemas económicos del protagonista.

Iremos saltando en el tiempo, desde la Castilla del medievo, al Damasco del poeta loco Abdul Alhazred y de como escribió el Necronomicon, pasando por la actualidad de la búsqueda y el pasado de los personajes involucrados en ella. Sectarios católicos, millonarios no tan excéntricos, personajes al borde del abismo, inmortales, seres mas allá de nuestra comprensión y hechizos de diversa índole son parte de lo que encontramos en esta novela.

Recomendable y disfrutable para quienes disfruten de estos temas donde la cordura se puede ir al garete en cada esquina.
