Summary

Life on Earth is good. Disease is checked, hunger ended, and war and suffering abolished, with liberty and justice and a high standard of living for all. But Paul Formain, a strangely gifted young engineer, doesn't believe a word of it. So he comes to Walter Blunt's Chantry Guild, whose motto is "Destruct!" and whose stated goal is the end of civilization. There are Alternate Laws at work in the world, says the Chantry Guild; Walter Blunt has pledged his life to them, and to the principle of destruction as a positive force. After centuries of hope and progress, and the triumph of science, something strange is happening to mankind. And whatever it is, it's going to be big.

Good Dickson.

If you could sum up Necromancer in three words, what would they be?

Before it's time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Necromancer?

Villan revealed as hero, or vice-versa.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes, pretty much on the same level.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but it made me think about thinking.

Any additional comments?

I read the original Dorsai book when it first came out. The Audible book of Dorsai was as good as I remembered, But, so far, I don't see how Necromancer fits into the series. Hopefully book 3 will clear up the mystery.
