Reader’s Reviews of the book:
A delightful and intriguing allegory 23 April 2015 by Roman
With this new book, Kingsley L. Dennis continues his exploration of our modern society previously described in “Meeting Monroe”. “The Citadel” is a delightful and intriguing allegory about a search for the meaning of life. A young and eager narrator visits various representatives of a very structured and organized society. Among the narrator’s hosts are the Scholar, the Banker, the Philosopher, and others. By listening to their experiences, the narrator gradually discovers the secret that protects itself; the secret that is beyond the reach of scholars, philosophers, or bankers. The book is an excellent reading for everyone.
A classic modern fable to love 4 May 2015
The Citadel, the first book in a trilogy, is a well crafted tale that draws you in with every expression that appears on the page. It seems that not a word is wasted and every sentence is filled with rich allegorical images, each with its learning and meaning. The author does a great job of teasing you through the book, peaking your curiosity at the turn of each page, only to leave you hungering for more at the very end, which really is just the beginning. The book is a direct reflection of the lost and meaningless lives many of us are leading today, but also is a clarion call for us to awake and seek out our journey from the known to the unknown, before the ‘suns set’.
Waiting with great anticipation for Book 2!
