I, Necrosis by Ramy Tadros is a powerful dystopian tale that will surely delight fans of the genre. It is a reign of terror, orchestrated by a globalist government that has very unusual schemes for humanity and the future of the world. The reader is introduced to a character trying to make sense of the dictatorship, but an encounter with a charming individual and a troubling order transform his doubts about the government into serious questions. Follow the protagonist, a very unusual man, as he travels to the very stronghold of the separatist movement, and how he comes upon a secret that is as mind-blowing as it is revealing of a plan that could sink the world.
The very first thing that catches the reader’s attention about this book is the beauty of the language. It feels so poetic and at times cryptic, and the author has style when it comes to exploring the mental agony the protagonist goes through. The psychological depth of this story is poignant, and the author makes powerful and philosophical declarations. “You are just meat — nothing but walking rotting meat. The thing that you call 'I' does not exist. It is an illusion, a delusion constructed by your brain.” This reduction of being just material, to matter, to that which is tangible, is one of the thoughts beautifully explored in this book and it constitutes one of the strong conflicts the reader is introduced to: faced with imminent extinction, what awaits this fragile humanity?
Ramy Tadros has created a masterpiece in I, Necrosis, a story that begs to be read with attention. It was captivating, and I found myself navigating the dangerous alleys of the protagonist’s mind. This is a novel with multilayered characters and a storyline that is open to multiple interpretations. It’s a must-read, but one must be mentally awake in order to dance to the rhythms evoked in this wonderful story. 5 Stars.
