I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was such a refreshing poetry collection!
It’s written in the typical Instagram poetry kind of style, but still managed to stand on its own. It felt very different from what you usually see in that style. It just felt very new and fresh.
The collection references a lot of philosophy which gave it a unique point of view. I was a philosophy major in college so this greatly appealed to me. I definitely saw the influence of some philosophers. As a whole, the collection was very thought provoking. It challenges you to reexamine the life you’re living.
The book is divided up into 4 sections. My favorite was the section was the second one, Love Hate Desire. This section explored love in a way I’ve never seen before. It reminded me of a philosophy class I once took that was all about the philosophy of love.
I just have to mention that I loved the acknowledgments. The acknowledgments were basically a list of names but they included a wide range of people. There were some iconic philosophers like Friedrich Nietzsche and Lao Tzu, but also celebrities like Denzel Washington, Jim Carrey, and my personal favorite, Keanu Reeves.
Overall, this collection will make you think about the way you live your life and inspire you to make changes for the better. I really recommend it if you’re looking for a different poetry collection than what is typically available.
