    The book was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest reviewGenerally speaking I like poetry Even moody tragic poetry What I found here was a bit too depressive for my taste and I didn't get anything out of it Poems were written pretty good it was the content I was having problems with so maybe it's just me I'm sure this work will find it's reader but I'm sad to say it's not meOver and outPS Illustrations were pretty cool I liked them than poems for sure

    Nope poetry is still not for me I've tried it just now and I really tried to like it but no Not my thing sorryI did like the pictures in this book I think Tetiana and Tony should write a comic book or a graphic novelAnd I did like the writing style there were maybe 2 poems I did like But poetry just isn't my thing so maybe I'm not the best reviewer for this bookIf you do like poems you could try this one the poems are about love life and as you can see on the cover death

  3. David David says:

    A poetic dialogue on love and death will whimsical yet macabre illustrations Mostly these are poems of self reflection sometimes with a Gothic or dark twist I particularly liked the dialogue aspect For example Tetiana declares that light reaches her core through open wounds I'm a filament To which Tony responds with a poem about crossing the road to test a hypothesis to test faith and says time to change the bulb I'm glad I read this interesting little collection of poetry

    Possible Spoilers Review at reuest of the author This is a book of poetry and I have to confess that my knowledge of poetry is nil In general it’s something I stay far away from so my ability to review this book is particularly limited That said I’ll touch upon a few things that I enjoyed and some that I didn’t First full disclosure When I was in high school and university I wrote a LOT of poetry and over time I came to understand just how easy it was for me to write some really bad poetry that fosters the illusion of being deep and insightful when in fact it was merely pretentious self indulgence Once I figured that out I decided that for me poetry was best left to other people So I’m rating this book as a three because I don’t have a clue how to analyze it It may be brilliant and it may be garbage I figure it’s probably in between so a three makes sense The blurb suggests that this is a poetry battle on themes of life love and death I’m not too keen on the death part I’ve come to that stage in life where Death keeps his spare scythe in my broom closet so this is a theme that’s becoming a little too real with every passing day Still for those still sufficiently young to regard the subject strictly in the abstract I think they might enjoy the poetryMy favourite poem in the collection was Lines It is doggerel plain and simple and doggerel is something to which I can relate Sometimes it has meaning and sometimes not so much; but it is usually irreverent and lively True in this case the poet seems to allude to some dark feelings but I can ignore that There are two four line stanzas with a nice rhythm That’s enough I’m not good with meanings but I rather like the sound of poetry and I read these poems with that in mind As a result a poem like Phronesis was enjoyable but slightly missed the mark The last line is ‘Look up Swallow keys’ Both receive one beat so there are two half beats followed by a triplet and every time I read it I found myself reading ‘Lock up And swallow keys’ The two half beats followed by the triplet may add to the dramatic impact – I don’t know about that but I don’t like it For me the rhythm becomes too choppyI uite enjoyed Headlanded but once again there was a break in the rhythm that I found disconcerting When I read the line ‘She forgets own name’ I think I automatically inserted the word ‘her’ before ‘own’ For me the extra syllable smoothes the rhythm and without it the line is too rough But that’s just me Other readers may uite like it and it should be noted that my ear for rhythm is probably archaicSuccumbed was a poem I didn’t like because the images seemed contrived ‘Vermicelli red’ ‘charnel frame’ – is the poet suggesting that this is the scene of a homicide? If so then maybe it works but frankly I didn’t receive that overall impression Zion’s lullaby I found much too choppy for my taste I did appreciate some self deprecating humour in ‘gustave doré’s divine comedy’ Also this poem had a really nice cadence Culling was another poem I uite enjoyed It had a nice brave tone to it In general I think this book is worth a look by those readers who are sufficiently young to ‘get’ modern poetry It may not be uite my thing but I’m still pretty much back at Robert Service and Edgar Allen Poe so my taste is far from representative I’m cannot claim to fully understand the work – or even come close to understanding it for that matter; but I think the authors have provided something pleasant to read on a rainy afternoon Also I really enjoyed the drawings and I think other people will like them as well

  5. Jill Elizabeth Jill Elizabeth says:

    I was contacted by the two authors of this short unusual collection in an email that immediately caught my eye I don’t normally review poetry because I think generally speaking poems are too personal to be “reviewed” the way novels or non fiction are You can’t evaluate them purely on artistic structural merits because the reason poetry resonates usually has very little to do with those elements While it’s true that other genres also “click” with readers for intangible reasons that intangibility always seems somehow essential in poetryprose – at least for me At the same time to write a review and recommendnot recommend something on such a purely subjective criterion as personal resonance seems to me to be inherently problematic That’s because the resonance depends not only on personal preferences and experiences but on mood and mindset – at the time of reading I can read a poem that moves me to tears today then re read it next year and think it’s drivel Poetry evokes feelings and feelings change Hence my usual avoidance of reviewsBut something about the email I received from Tati and Tony caught my eye and I agreed And I’m glad I did While poetry is never going to be my first love reading wise I do enjoy clever turns of phrase and evocative imagery in any context I also enjoy reading by people who love words and like to play with them All of those things are found in this delightful dark uirky collection People mock by saying “I laughed I cried” but I actually did run that gamut of emotions with these writings There is playful fun here followed by desperation fear pain longing joy and snarky commentary in eual measure That’s an impressive range in a book that only weighs in at 38 pages And as if that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite let me mention the absolutely charmingly dark illustrations scattered throughout – they are a fun evocative and occasionally provocative addition to the words that really tied things together visually and linguisticallyI’d like to particularly call out a few of the pieces that I especially enjoyed Culling Doll Not Today Melancholics Anonymous Lines and PS I Love You True there were several that either left me confused or with a slight eye roll – but that happens with every collection I think from prose to short stories Still on the whole I found this to be an enjoyable excursion into the heads of two very talented and creative individuals If you want to learn about them or sample their work before committing to the book check out their very original and charmingly cool website UnboltMe

    As always do not let my star count override your judgement of content More on the stars counting and my rating challenges laterThe authors have provided a series of poems alternating in who writes what Thus the thirty two pieces here represent sixteen each Differences in style and formatting will clue you in even without the authorship notes at the end of each offeringThere are a number of drawings which add interest to and complement the poetryLet me give you a feel for the work In Shaman we find this “A shaman has three hands” If that doesn’t peak your curiosity there’s to this short poemThe alternate poems are different For instance in Zion Lullaby lowercase in the text we find this “now here’s a little ditty to remind me of a city on a hill that awaits me beckons me i’ll drown me not in pity it’s there in the nitty gritty in my hell” These poems tend to be lyrical whereas the alternate ones are a bit about pushing an experienceIn the middle of the poem Doll we find this “My turuoise eyes faded My ruby red mouth can’t smile My light brown hair unbraided and I went out of style” If you’ve ever regretted consigning an old toy to the dustbin this poem will touch youFrom the alternate author we have gfe which begins thus “if i stay will you fist my heart or will you spoon it”For a brush with mortality turn to Not Today Hopefully that will give you a feel for this work Back to the star count boilerplate My personal guidelines when doing any review are as follows five stars means roughly eual to best in genre Rarely given Four stars means extremely good Three stars means definitely recommendable I am a tough reviewer I try hard to be consistent This is an interesting work and three stars from this curmudgeon is a clear recommendation Your personal rating may be higher

    I simply can't make myself enjoy the book The writing is intelligent; it flows smoothly and there are no grammatical or formatting issues I simply did not enjoy the poems That in itself is no reflection upon the authors' writing skills It is just my personal preference I received this book in exchange for an honest review
