    2 7 2017I get likes on this review daily and for a long time i ve felt like a 3 star review was too generous so I lowered it to 2 today, which isaccurate in hindsight.7 11 2016If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, Oh Honestly, very underwhelming I m not sure why people go crazy about this book and say it s gorgeous and it s their favorite book, because honestly, it s very plain Some poems are just basic sentences with random skips that have no real point, the 2 7 2017I get likes on this review daily and for a long time i ve felt like a 3 star review was too generous so I lowered it to 2 today, which isaccurate in hindsight.7 11 2016If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, Oh Honestly, very underwhelming I m not sure why people go crazy about this book and say it s gorgeous and it s their favorite book, because honestly, it s very plain Some poems are just basic sentences with random skips that have no real point, they aren t too lyrical, and it s literally just like reading a normal sentence I expected I would love every page of this, but I only marked 4 poems This just was nothing new The concepts in this poem, especially when it rolled around to the feminism aspects, just didn t wow me An entire poem just about you don t NEED a man you WANT a man was just a repeat of things I ve been hearing for years It wasn t interesting, and a lot of the poems just sounded so pretentious because it was just plain text with no punctuation and random skips in the lines being fed to the reader as art Someone mentioned this was a little too Tumblr, and I agree It was a quick read, but just a little bit frustrating because it was too simple, too familiar The art was nice and a few of the poems were well written, but for the most part, it seems like very little effort was put into this, which makes me sad because that s such a mean criticism for an artist who puts so much emotion into her work

    Oops, I did it againaka here s another tierlist video ranking all my January Books Now that you know where this one stands, check out the video to see the rest The Written Review Ah ifinally understand.It s not the wordsthat matter,but the spacesbetween a slightly sarcastic review I m not normally a poetry person and this book did nothing to convince me otherwise.This whole book felt like those instagram quotes minus the inspirational photograph Does that even count Oops, I did it againaka here s another tierlist video ranking all my January Books Now that you know where this one stands, check out the video to see the rest The Written Review Ah ifinally understand.It s not the wordsthat matter,but the spacesbetween a slightly sarcastic review I m not normally a poetry person and this book did nothing to convince me otherwise.This whole book felt like those instagram quotes minus the inspirational photograph Does that even count I admit I m no expert, but the words seemedpoetical than poem Like the author took a really pretty sentence and then hit enter a lot.Also, maybe I m a hypocrite here just based on the sheer amount of books in my house but I kind of felt bad for all the unused page space in this book There s barely a handful of words per page and just vast amounts of white paper It just felt a bit wasteful.Overall it wasan experience Not the best experience, but an experience nonetheless a final poem the above reviewwas far sarcastic than myearlier poem.but this oneisvulgar.poop

    I read this in a bookshop I wanted to give it zero stars It s not poetry It s shamefully derivitive and doesn t employ any poetic devices except for the most cliched and not to positive effect Random line breaks and sentence fragments are used because it is what is expected of a poem, but the author doesn t seem to understand that in poetry, these serve a purpose and must contribute to the poem s larger meaning The allusions and metaphors are misplaced and nonsensical Milk and honey is I read this in a bookshop I wanted to give it zero stars It s not poetry It s shamefully derivitive and doesn t employ any poetic devices except for the most cliched and not to positive effect Random line breaks and sentence fragments are used because it is what is expected of a poem, but the author doesn t seem to understand that in poetry, these serve a purpose and must contribute to the poem s larger meaning The allusions and metaphors are misplaced and nonsensical Milk and honey is a phrase that has been used for hundreds if not thousands of years there is nothing new or interesting or creative or poetic in this book It reads like a 13 year old s diary This book is for people who have never read poetry outside of school, and that s too bad I feel sorry for them because they are missing out

    While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn t make this writing very good Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality I see why her poems are popular, but not why she s considered a great or brilliant writer She s addressing universal themes, but she doesn t do so in an especially artful skilled way I d say if you aren t a big fan of poetry, this book cou While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn t make this writing very good Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality I see why her poems are popular, but not why she s considered a great or brilliant writer She s addressing universal themes, but she doesn t do so in an especially artful skilled way I d say if you aren t a big fan of poetry, this book could get you interested in it, but if you re expecting just plain good old fashioned literary talent, you won t find it here
