The Indulgence of Negu Mah   By: (1909-1969)

Book cover

Robert Arthur's The Indulgence of Negu Mah takes readers on a journey that intertwines history, fantasy, and the power of human connection.

The novel spins an intricate tale of Negu Mah, a young protagonist with a mysterious past, who embarks on a captivating adventure to uncover the truth about his identity. Through brilliant storytelling, Arthur skillfully combines elements of magic and ancient legends, bringing to life a vivid and enchanting world.

What makes this book exceptional is Arthur's ability to craft incredibly detailed and imaginative settings. From the bustling streets of Negu Mah's hometown to the mystical realms he ventures into, the author's vivid descriptions whisk readers away to these mystical places, allowing them to fully immerse themselves into the story.

The characters in The Indulgence of Negu Mah are also brilliantly developed and multi-dimensional. Negu Mah himself is a compelling protagonist, grappling with his past while navigating a treacherous and ever-changing world. His interactions with the various supporting characters are well-crafted, with each one adding depth and complexity to the narrative.

Beyond the engaging plot and captivating characters, Arthur embeds thought-provoking themes throughout the story. The exploration of identity, the power of love and friendship, and the consequences of indulgence are all present, giving the book a thought-provoking edge. These themes, coupled with the mesmerizing storytelling, elevate the narrative from merely entertaining to profound and introspective.

However, at times, the story may feel slightly convoluted, with certain twists and turns requiring careful attention to fully grasp. While this complexity adds depth to the plot, some readers may find it challenging to keep up with the multitude of characters and their motivations.

Despite this minor flaw, Arthur's The Indulgence of Negu Mah is an enchanting and engrossing read that will captivate fans of historical fantasy. With its rich world-building, compelling characters, and thoughtful themes, this book will transport readers on a remarkable journey that will linger in their minds long after they finish the last page.

Negu Mah sat at his ease, his broad, merry, half Oriental face good humored, his features given a ruddy tinge by the light of rising Jupiter, the edge of whose sphere was beginning to dominate the horizon. Sliss, the intelligent amphibian, squatted across from him in the portable tub of water which he carried with him whenever absent from the swamps of his native Venus.

The amphibian's popping eyes turned toward her, the wide frog face split in a smile of appreciation as Nanlo approached. She refilled their mugs deftly and withdrew. But before she reentered the house she could not resist hesitating to glance toward rising Jupiter and the slim shaft of the rocketship silhouetted now against its surface...
