ONE MUST NOT CURSE THE DEAD

THEY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE
Wow!!!, what did I just listen to? This book has vampires, but it is not just about vampires. It has the KGB, but it is not just about the KGB. It also has Espionage, witches, a necromancer, ESP, The Evil Eye, Far seeing, wizards, evolution, Boris and Natasha (no Moose and Squirrel) and it has a Zombie Army, but it is not about any one of these things. It is as if Dan Simmons, Simon R. Green and Jack Ketchum got together to write a book. Actually, copyrighted in 1986, this was before their times.

WELL, THAT WAS HARRY
Unlike the other reviewers, I had never read Lumley before. I had seen his name at used book stores and wondered about him, but had never gotten around to reading him. It seems he has a sort of cult following of which my name can now be added. This is a very entertaining read. It is full of Pseudo Science, but it is not a comedy. It is a serious, scary read. It is a little long in the tooth, but stay with it. Chapter one will blow your socks off, than it slows down a bit, with a lot of remembering. At chapter eleven, the remembering is done and the action goes full force. Chapter one is gory and chapter 24 is pain filled. So, well written you will cringe. The amount of genre's contained in this read, is crazy. I have read other genre crossing novels, but most fell short. This is the first of a series and I hope Audible will pick up the rest of them.

WAITED FOR YEARS!!!! Awsome horror series!

What did you love best about Necroscope?

The Lovecraftian vampire. These vampires don't glitter they are horrific, old and among us! If they really walked the earth I would live in a bunker.


What other book might you compare Necroscope to and why?

Really can't say. Brian Lumley's characters are unique. I have never read a series like it before or since.


What about James Langtonā€™s performance did you like?

His English accent. Brian Lumley is English and the story, in part, takes place in England. The e-branch is in London. He does a great job of narrating.


Who was the most memorable character of Necroscope and why?

Harry. the reluctant hero.


Any additional comments?

I hope Audible records all of the Necroscope novels. it is the best series I have ever read. Period! Also, I am a real live person who enjoys good, engaging stories.
