To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
i like the idea of no capital letters but the lack of punctuation is horrific. this makes it very hard to read. if the poems’ lines were separated properly so it’d make sense without punctuation, it’d be fine, but the structure is just frankly upsetting. it is also very gendered, i didn’t expect this so when i read the book, difficult to say it was enjoyable. very overpriced for its quality too. wouldn’t recommend.
I ended up returning. Going through a heartbreaking divorce & was hoping to find some deep words of peace & encouragement. As much as I love the title...unfortunately the content just didn’t connect with me or the place I’m at in my life.
the quality of the book itself was fine, but the contents were greatly disappointing. if you want something that is easy to understand and very surface level, i would recommend this book. in my opinion, the poems are far too short to connect with a person on a deeper emotional level. not only are the poems so short, but the themes are so repetitive, it seems like i’m reading the same thing over and over again. this is the convenient “poetry” for wine moms; something you can read in a few minutes and not have to look any deeper than the words themselves. there is no structure to the pomes and i find most of them bare of substance. maybe it is because i am used to poets such as sylvia plath and w. h. auden, but these poems are lacking the deeper mystery in the words. there is no room to interpret the poem because it is so specific, yet so vague. of course, if you’ve gone through these experiences, you will be able to relate, but the poems become meaningless through the repetition of them.
I bought this book after seeing someone read a page on social media. After it came I was disappointed to say the least. The lack of punctuation and capitalization seemed either sloppy or a forced play for creativity or whimsy and was not believable. There were several pages that had only a few words on them, and many pages were completely blank. This is more of a book of someone's internal dialog haphazardly scribbled down and self published than a poetry book. There is one diamond in the rough in the entire book; page 61. I was hoping for more.
