To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was stuck between 3-4 stars for this poetry book. I wish I could give a 3.5 for it. There’s a lot of emotion behind these poems and I think I saw a couple of small typo errors in it. There’s a lot of pining, longing, and pain with it. This relationship that won’t die and that the bones of it are still around. The last poem I felt really nailed it well and so the 4 stars. But, I was leaning toward 3 or 3.5. But having that cut, cut, and then sharing it with her is a great way to end this collection. There’s some parts I highlighted with the lines but it started with such hope but as it kept going the overwhelming message kept being spoken but just slightly different. These poems speak heavily on love lost, and not being able to let go of that love being lost. A lot of pining, and hope for regret by her.
Amazing book! I read it twice in a row, cover to cover. Beautifully written and strikes the soul deeply. I also purchased the first volume of this book which was also just as beautifully written. Jack Ray’s portrayal of the dark parts of where the mind goes leaves me wanting a 3rd volume.
