What I think of it
I haven’t been into poetry until a few months ago and I must say I do not like every kind of poetry.
I have mixed feelings about this book.
I enjoyed the poems in general, some made me laugh, others were more serious and actually made you think about things in life. But then again some were just so long and kinda lost my concentration halfway through. I think I will reread this book at some point in my life again and maybe I’ll appreciate it more. I totally recommend this book if you have read and enjoyed all sorts of poetry before.
On a side note: The author is an absolute sweetheart, very kind.
