A look into a lifestyle and emotional journey

At first glance this book seemed like any run of the mill midlife crisis man looking for something in life. Once I started getting into the book it was more than that, not because this isn’t true but because this story takes you through the entire journey from “death” to “life” and a few other places. I tend to favor books that take place in New York but this is only because it’s my home town. This book was not any different, I could picture the streets, sights and sounds and the author does a really good book of painting a clear picture with his words. I found the story to be well written, the author does well weaving together a story and clearly outlining K’s feelings and thoughts throughout the book. There are a number of awakening moments for him which either bring him to life or throw him into despair. His feelings and emotions are a bit of a roller coaster and are well written and described by the author. There is a BDSM theme with this story but it is not something that is over the top or what some would consider offensive. It does show a certain side to the lifestyle that some may dismiss or disregard. The author does well explaining not only how a submissive feels but how much their dom or domme can affect their lives. This is a bit of an interesting ride over all and looking at the life of K and his need to feel something was well written and well thought out. The characters are written in a way that makes them believable. I will say the ending was sadder than I expected and while I actually hoped for a bit of a happy ending it was touching and emotional on a different level. It wasn’t a cry your eyes out type of ending but one that touches you briefly only to see something that K missed all along.
