Book cover

DP by Arthur Dekker Savage is a gripping and thought-provoking novel that delves into the intricacies of the human mind. Unconventional and daring, this book challenges readers to question the boundaries of reality and perception.

The story follows the life of its protagonist, whose initials "DP" become emblematic of his fractured identity. As DP navigates a world full of ambiguity and uncertainty, the author expertly explores themes of mental health, memory, and the profound impact of traumatic experiences on a person's life.

Savage's writing style is both descriptive and introspective, painting vivid pictures of DP's inner struggles while also presenting a rich and atmospheric setting. The author skillfully transitions between DP's present-day existence and his haunting recollections, gradually unraveling the layers of his complex psychological state. The reader is left wondering what is real and what is a product of DP's disordered mind.

One of the book's strongest aspects is the way it tackles the reality of mental illness. Savage tastefully portrays DP's mental challenges, raising awareness about the stigma surrounding such conditions. Through DP's character, the author highlights the importance of empathy and understanding, urging readers to reconsider their preconceptions about mental health.

Moreover, the supporting cast of characters in DP is brilliantly portrayed, each contributing to the overarching narrative and enhancing DP's journey. From DP's conflicted therapist to a mysterious stranger who seems to hold the key to his memories, each interaction adds depth and intrigue to the plot.

Nevertheless, at times, DP can be disorienting and even perplexing. The nonlinear narrative may prove challenging, requiring readers to piece together fragments of information to gain a holistic understanding of the story. While this complexity enhances the book's overall effect, some readers may find themselves feeling lost or struggling to keep up.

Despite this minor drawback, DP is an enthralling read that certainly stands out from the crowd. Arthur Dekker Savage has crafted a truly unforgettable exploration of the human mind, forming a lasting impression that will undoubtedly stay with readers long after they turn the final page. With its raw and honest portrayal of mental health struggles, DP is a book that has the power to elicit empathy and spark important conversations about the complexities of our inner lives.

Allen Kinderwood slowed his pace so his forelock would quit bobbing. The damn thing wasn't supposed to bob; it was supposed to be a sort of peaked crest above rugged, handsome features a dark lock brushed carelessly aside by a man who had more important things to do than fuss with personal grooming. But no matter how carefully he combed it and applied lusto set, it always bobbed if he walked too fast.

But then, why should it matter now? He wasn't looking for a woman tonight. Not when his appointment with the Social Adjustment counsellors was tomorrow morning, and he would get a Departure Permit. Should get one, he corrected himself. But he had never heard of a petition for a DP being refused.

He wanted to spend his last night in the city over here in the main park of C Sector, walking in the restless crowds, trying to settle his thoughts. He moved through slow aimless eddies of brightly appareled citizens, avoiding other pedestrians, skaters and the heavy, four wheeled autoscooters. Everything was dully, uncompromisingly the same as in his own sector, even to the size and spacing of the huge, spreading trees... Continue reading book >>
