Book review #6
Ciao cyberspace, and Assalam u Aliekum! Hope you’re all doing well 🙂
I had been doing so well with my blogging, but this week my performance did not live up to the mark. In my defense, I’m only a day late. It’s cool, right? :DDDD
*The text in bold explains what the book is about.
This book is divided into several chapters, each one taking down a particular category. Along with an introduction to each chapter, we are given a brief description prior to each poem about it which I thought was a nice addition, as it introduced to us what we were going to be met with in the upcoming sentences.
We are taken along through some very significant aspects in life, from Academics to Social Life to Holidays And Greeting Cards. All the poems in this book are based on routinely activities and daily challenges, providing something relatable for almost all teenagers and adults, no matter what stage in life they may be in. Having said that, this is a very easy read with the poems requiring no deep analysis to be understood, and can be easily enjoyed as a coffee table read.
I found this book to be quite amusing, as this was unique take on poems. However, at times, I felt like some words had been put in there just to make the sentences rhyme. For example, these closing sentences from a poem called the Letter of Resignation:
I’m not the first to leave,
And I won’t be the last.’
The poem was fun to read, but I would have been more pleased with a stronger ending than this. Verses like these resulted in me liking some poems better than others in terms of creativity.
Though being a unique idea, this book does not have anything extremely outstanding to offer beside its ability to relate. Some people may find it a bit dry for their taste, but others may enjoy it immensely. Personally, I’m glad I got the opportunity to read this, as most of these poems have been cleverly written.
