Book Review: Podunk Moon: An Anthology

Photograph by Pezibear

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Poems about chronic depression failed love relationships and sex will keep the reader engaged throughout the anthology. Some poems I didn’t get at all but others I felt like the poem was written for me like Fraction and Deeper Down.

You can see that the poems as you read more are getting more youthful and rebellious. The author by reversing the order of her poems managed to web an unusual way of perspective that made me think that our past is gone but that doesn’t mean we can’t use it as a source of inspiration and as a way of learning so we won’t repeat mistakes in our future life.

I loved the poem For the Letter “W” where you can clearly see the author’s excellent command of the English language. All the words start with the W letter which I found really beautiful and made me giggle a little.

Overall a well organized and comprehensive anthology of poems that will make you smile, laugh, cry and evoke a plethora of emotions in you. If you like poetry then this book is for you.

Highly Recommended.
