reviews of for boys who love

more than a book of poetry, this is a collection of truths. the author poured himself into this work. one can easily find himself (or herself) in one or more of these dynamic pieces.

good Stuff! the title mentions boys, but i believe the poetry is for everyone. the poems are vivid and honest about life. simple, raw and truthful. i didn’t know quite what to expect, but after reading, i certainly look forward to other collections from the author.

this is a wonderful compilation of poems. the expressions are so honest. there are a few poems that make you think and definitely make for great conversation. very nicely put together.

there was an initial fear that this body of work would cater only to a particular demographic. turns out my fear was unwarranted. this is a literary time capsule and time machine that transforms the black text and white pages into colorful imagery, transports the mind of the reader to a place of “remember when”, and tells a true story of human emotion and phases of life. a job well done.
