Self-Definition Through Uncertainty
A Review of Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram
Darius the Great is Not Okay (2018) is an evocative tale of a young man and his journey for self-actualization. Darius Kellner is unique. He has a love for The Lord of the Rings and Star Trek and a steeping love for tea. Rather than sports and girls, Darius often pursues profound thoughts and enlightening reflections, revealing some advanced understandings of his own feelings. Life is stagnating for Darius. He battles bullies—the “Soulless Minions of Orthodoxy,” as Darius terms them—expectations of his father, and depression.
