The Fantastical Keys of Darius Newton Archibank by Zarqnon the Embarrassed is a very motivating novel that aids readers in understanding the term "autism" and all of its associated problems. In an immensely expressive and fascinating manner, the author of this book shares with the readers his encounters, views, feelings, and how being autistic has affected how he sees the outer world. Success in society should be judged by the degree to which people with various special needs, such as autism, are valued and embraced as full members.
In this book, Zarqnon the Embarrassed argues that autism isn't all bad but rather the beginning of a completely different responsibility. With captivating and emotional poems, Zarqnon the Embarrassed depicts his life journey from a man who feels as though his life has been wrecked and has no meaning to one who, at least, finds himself, learns who he is, and more fully comprehends his circumstance.
I appreciate that the author holds certain beliefs. Though it may not be widely accepted in today's society, I think that having faith in a higher being might make it easier to deal with daily struggles and difficulties. An autistic person could have to face more of life's uncertainties than others who are not autistic, so this would be especially helpful to them. I also appreciate how the author has accepted his own personality. He claims that all he wants is to be appreciated rather than mended or healed. I can really relate to this. Numerous individuals frequently feel they need to be healed because of their differences, when all they really need is a little bit of compassion, affection, and tolerance.
There was only one aspect of this book that I didn't like: there were a few unused spaces amid paragraphs, and the layout was a little disjointed, but that didn't detract from how much I enjoyed the book overall. Still, I give it a perfect five out of five star rating as I discovered no typos, thus it was definitely edited by professionals.
To improve the world, more publications like this are required. I would advise it, especially for people who are surrounded by people with autism spectrum disorders.
