I liked this book, I really did. I just wasn't in love with it. As someone who loves poetry I think I was expecting something different. Quite a few of the poems were quite funny and relatable. Others were good but I just didn't feel a connection with them.
The author does a wonderful job of making the poems funny but adding a moral or something that people should learn into each one. I really liked this aspect and it really added to the meaning and feelings of the poems and what they were all about.
There were some spelling and grammar mistakes but these were minor and didn't make the poems hard to understand or detract from the overall book.
This book may be good for those who are intimidated by poetry but want to read it. This book is really easy to read and doesn't take very long. For the most part each poem is pretty short and no more than a single page, a few take up 2-3 pages but are still quite easy to understand and follow. If you want to give poetry a try, I think this may be a good book to start with. It's funny and also offers meaning and morals behind the hilarious words.
The question is, will I be checking out works by this author in the future? I think I will. Although I wasn't totally crazy about this collection of poems, I think there was a lot of potential and I am looking forward to seeing how his poems grow and evolve in the future.
