powerful story

This review is from: he & She (Kindle Edition)

Wow! Words can’t possibly express the depth of emotion I feel after reading this book. The title, cover and description don’t do it justice. The story is told in flashback. The range of emotions (or lack thereof) that K experiences as he’s going through life are far-reaching. From apathy to the spikes of a man clearly in love, mostly with a dream. But what, to me, this book is mostly about is desire. Actually that barely plumbs the depths of the level of longing, of craving, the steps K would take to feel. If you’ve never been in a position where you felt emotionally numb, you may not understand this novel. What apathy can do to a person struggling to exist in a world where you are meaningless unless you are needed. While yes, this book does have bdsm elements, it isn’t the point of the story (despite what the cover may indicate). What it is, is an effective tool in one man’s quest to quench his thirst…to feel something…to desire. Now I am intentionally attempting not to give anything away. You can read other reviews and excerpts if you want a general understanding of the book. Or you could simply buy it. It’s not what you expect. It will leave you unsettled. But that’s a good thing.
