Review: A Curious Future

A Curious Future Kiki Dombrowski

Kiki Dombrowski’s A Curious Future: A Handbook of Unusual Divination and Unique Oracular Techniques is like a vintage curio cabinet showcasing various techniques of divinatory techniques to help you gain clarity on the future. Some of the techniques will be familiar, but many will be surprisingly new – at least they were to me. The book contains everything from scrying into wine to handwriting analysis to runes to dream interpretation to lithomancy to cheese divination to dice rolling to ogham to tea leaf reading to omens and superstitions. But there’s also so much more packed into this little book. Dombrowski’s writing style is very accessible meaning anyone who picks it up is sure to be able to follow along regardless of experience level.

A Curious Future is a smaller book coming in at about 120 pages. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book being completely unfamiliar with the author, but decided to take a chance on it due to the description and the insanely cute cover. I’m glad I did because I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. However, the vast scope of the techniques provided that the author covers versus the time she spends on each of them was a bit brief, though discusses each just enough to ensure that you can successfully employ them yourself. She could probably expand each chapter into individual books – and I would love to see larger books by her in the future.

One of the things I found myself really appreciating about A Curious Future is that Dombrowski cites all of her sources and has a good sized bibliography and recommended reading list if you do want to dive deeper into the topics she covers. Despite all of this, the book is a quick read and serves as a fantastic crash course on various divination methods and instructions for those who are still learning to divine, yet still provides gems of interesting divination techniques that most seasoned diviners are probably completely unfamiliar with.
