The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan


The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan
What if man from past walks around a city and goes to baseball games and moves in with a woman?
Hello Jeremiah Rice. He’s the frozen man and he is alive again. Now it gets dicey, ethics and all that. The judge, that was what Jeremiah was before, commented on his new surroundings with great clarity. Everyone is curious.
Four person narrative: Kate Philo, Daniel Dixon, Erastus Carthage, and Jeremiah Rice. Ownership, access, freedom are played with in this novel. It is an ethical nightmare. Frankenstein is an obvious reference, but so is Flowers for Algernon. Crowd mentality is a strong force. Let’s just say The Curiosity is a curious novel.
