Book Review

Reviewed by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite

Wow! I just finished one of the most truly unique and interesting books that I have read in a very, very long time. In author D.K. Cassidy’s new book, Curious Reality, we are again following characters from the author’s previous work, Spilt Milk - Caleb, Joy and George. All three have dark and difficult pasts, and things are certainly not any different when we find them now. But all three have hopes and plans, things they believe will lead them to a better place in their lives. And the experiences they feel, the things they encounter, certainly take us on an interesting and curious ride.

I really enjoyed this book. Author D.K. Cassidy has a creative and special voice, not one you will see often in current literature. Her writing style is almost poetical, and the world she creates with her pen is simply fantastic. One of the great gifts of her writing is that she truly gets into the heads of her characters, and writes with a sympathy and empathy for them that is wonderful. Each of the characters is struggling with their own form of mental illness, and the fact that author Cassidy is able to portray them in a way that makes them both likable and sympathetic is of great importance in a book such as this.

Curious Reality would appeal to any reader who enjoys literary fiction, beautifully written prose, or books with characters that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading about them. I certainly hope that D.K. Cassidy is hard at work on her next book, because I, for one, will be watching eagerly for its release.
