Author: Rupi Kaur

Published: 4 November 2014

Genre: Poetry

No. Of Pages: 204

I read Rupi’s second poetry collection last year of which I enjoyed so much (check my review here). So my plan was to read her first collection, which took me a long time to do.

SUMMARY

This is a collection of poetry about different aspects of life, i.e., love, lose, trauma, abuse, healing and femininity. These poems are subdivided into 4 different sections, namely; the hurting, the loving, the breaking and the healing. Each chapter takes us through a different journey regarding life challenges that we all come across at some point in our lives.

MY THOUGHTS

  • Firstly, the writing style for me was simple and it was easier to follow the flow of each poem.
  • The simplicity of the poems was just amazing for me. The poems are relatable, I related to a lot of them.
  • The simplistic drawing used to portray each poem was just fantastic. Even though the drawings are simple, I feel like the writer invested a lot of time thinking them through in order to make them perfect yet simple at the same time.
  • One thing I felt like, it could have been changed, was the length of some of the poems. Most is them were short, even though they were full of impact but I felt like it could have been the best book if they were a few one-liners.

But other than that I really enjoyed the book so much, I’ve inserted some of the poems that stood out for me. A lot of them did, but I don’t want to introduce more spoilers to those who still want to read the book.

It was a good book but I feel like I enjoyed the second poetry collection more than this one.

I hope this was helpful, if you’ve read this book, please share your thoughts in the comments section.
