4.0 étoiles sur 5 A touching read 14 novembre 2016
Par Aljinon - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Very rarely do I read books on poetry but I felt inspired to look into this one. The poems are simple but filled with emotion. For love, to heartache and abuse, to finding peace and love again. If you've got spare time on your lunch break, a long commute to work or anytime, I suggest giving a poetry book such as this one a read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A daydreamer's real journey on a path on love (a book like that you could have written with your own life) 13 novembre 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
The author clearly states, at three fourths of this little, precious book, to be a daydreamer and a believer in fairy tales.

And this book actually begins with a lovely memory that feels like a fairy tale, painted on the canvas of our imagination with few, simple, warm, worded brushstrokes... but then, towards the end of it, some sadness suddenly shadows it like a dark cumulonimbus promising rain.

And, indeed, we're taken through quite a journey, poem after poem, in which love is found, lost, and found again; a journey in which oneself is actually lost and found, as well, again and again, through the trials of love (from a woman's perspective, of course); a journey in which lessons are learnt the hard way.

Stylistically, the author shows, here and there, the poignancy she's perfectly able to reach and render.
Yet, most of the times, she seems to choose to hold herself back, and rather humbly sticks to a simpler style.
"Is this still poetry?", one might wonder.

In my humble opinion, through the realism of the situations she recounts, and by means of each straight and raw emotion she renders, she isn't absolutely betraying the nature and purpose of poetry, but she's rather serving it in the most effectively way.

Because one of the greatest achievements we can hope to conquer, realistically speaking, is not necessarily that to live a life that looks and feels like a romantic poem, or like a fairy tale, but rather that to always be able to glimpse the poetry pervading, between the lines, our real life, no matter how rough, prosaic and challenging it may get at times.
And that's exactly what we need, in order to find the sense and purpose of it all.

Read this book and you'll find out it will speak to you as if you wrote it yourself, with your heartbeats, hopes, mistakes, pains, tears and joys being like your own ink on the pages days are, simply by living.
Simply by loving, with all of yourself.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Wanted to enter into a realm that was foreign to me 19 mai 2016
Par Josh D. - Publié sur

From the description of the chapbook, I was initially highly intrigued for living in the Western world. I wanted a glimpse of how life and ideas varied from my own. Unfortunately, a glimpse was all I received. Let me explain.

For praise, this book is gleaming with sentimentalism, which can either attract or repulse a reader. I'm very analytical when I come across this genre for I desire the sublimity that comes from those poems that are not cliche. I really enjoyed the poems Intuition and Reader's Soul. For the former, I felt had the strongest metaphors and a turn that really darkened the mood. The latter seemed to tell me the author's influence which was relieving.

For critique, I felt these poems were more into the narrative realm and would fit better within a memoir than poetry. The diction/metaphors/allusions were elementary for the most part and the scenes which I hoped for to be a window into the writer's world became terribly too familiar. The estranged lover motif and short quotatitive pieces also became redundant. The vagueness/ambiguity took away from the intended message. For example, Welkin seems to be the focus of the writer's society, or at least an impressionable event that occurred, yet I was left asking for more. If I was supposed to reconnect what was being said, I just couldn't figure it out.

Overall, I hope this review helps the writer to realize that originality, identity of culture/society, and a better grasp of poetic elements would've made this chapbook more desired.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Treasure 20 avril 2016

The first time, I read it slowly and thoughtfully.
I had to stop after one or another because I wanted to cherish the feelings it caused, some of them hard to digest. The author describes beautifully scenes, feelings and thoughts sometimes with short sentences , other times with longer poems without a fear about not so common topics.
A real treasure to have in your bookshelf...
