    Once again I was looking through my kindle® library for something different to read and I came across this book of poetry. Many of these poems are whimsical, but a few will make you think and feel in ways that are the farthest things from whimsy.

Many of these poems are whimsical, but a few will make you think and feel in ways that are the farthest things from whimsy. All are based on modern life and while the poet seems to be from a rural part of the United Kingdom, people from more urban areas and other countries may also enjoy these pieces because they are very easy to relate to being about modern, somewhat routine experiences. I think gathering a group of friends together and reading them aloud during a picnic might make for a wonderful shared experience because even people who say that they don't like poetry are sure to find something to enjoy in this book.

    Laughter and Angst While some of the poems were quite humorous and made me smile, I found others incredibly poignant and sad. This poet has a keen read of the human condition.

    Cute read It's like Dr Seuss for adults. Had a few funny poems, and a few really cute ones. It was overall a good read. Cute read It's like Dr Seuss for adults. Had a few funny poems, and a few really cute ones. It was overall a good read.
