Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Perillous Journey of Whomus In The Garden Of Uter: The Dawn Of Life is a short work of dramatic fiction set in the biological and magical realism genre, and was penned by author Daniel Faustin. Written as a conceptual and thought-provoking piece that mirrors the journey of a fetus through the womb, we follow our central character Whomus as they travel to the Garden of Uter and begin a stay of development that will prepare them for life in the outside world. What results is a short exploration of stages of development of personality, identity and physical growth that mirrors the biological process, and makes some comment on the pro-life/pro-choice debate.

For the reader who can put political and personal reservations aside, author Daniel Faustin has created a pleasant read which would be suitable for readers from mature children upwards to explore the concept of personality and development at an early age. The prose is well written with plenty of personality in the narrative and strong characterization for Whomus, who becomes a more and more likable, naïve young protagonist as the tale progresses. The parodic imagery for the Garden of Uter and the references to female biology are intelligently placed and not overdone, creating an uplifting and atmospheric setting for the internal journey of the central character to take place. I really enjoyed this book and its unique writing style. Overall, The Perillous Journey of Whomus In The Garden Of Uter: The Dawn Of Life offers a poignant and pleasant reading experience that is sure to make its audience stop and think.
