My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Everyday is Valentine’s day with a collection like this. The words flowed like silk and almost every poem was something I could imagine. Where technique is concerned, the old cat man does recommend it for poetry lovers who appreciate the sensual theme. The author makes it a point to communicate honestly, raw emotions are visible in every stanza while the reader is gently whisked away to a state of pleasure in body, mind and soul.
It’s a good book, correct? Yes. I’ve made that very clear and I will say it again I loved the way the poems were written. Now, here’s the big BUT. My usual rant is about to commence about book covers. Why black? This was a point of curiosity from more than one reader I knew. The poems were about passion, love, seduction … which are introduced with a big chunk of black. Then, there was the text on the cover. Without a magnifying glass or reading glasses, if anyone can clearly read what it says from the second line onwards, I am in awe of you. Because try as I might, from the cover, I can’t even read the author’s name.
The other thing that significantly bothered quite a few of us were the pictures used in the book. I’m certain not all the images were taken by the author or are of the author and yet no source, photographer or site name is cited. This is definitely something I think the author should look into fixing to avoid any confusion later on. Were the pictures used with permission? Were there stock images? Too many questions.
In a nutshell, the cat man more than liked this book and thinks where the writing is concerned, it definitely deserves your time.
