3.5 stars.

This was an enjoyable, short collection of poetry. To be honest, the shortness was probably what most led me to enjoy it. Or rather, to be able to enjoy it. Had it been longer, I might have shied away from reading it, as I generally don't care for poetry.

That said, this was pretty good. I liked the simple style that conveys a feeling as you read without being heavy or cumbersome.

Here's a little sample, a line that really stuck with me:

A Story Not Wished to be Read is a collection of poems that reflect on everyday issues and experiences looking for a way to understand the normal chaos that surrounds our lives. The book contains 21 short poems that deal with themes such as love, pain, faith, promises, engagements, and mostly the mental trappings that we tend to cover ourselves with. The book is a quick read, with it being only 8 pages long.

This collection of poems takes the reader down the mental wanderings every reader can relate to. Tales of love, loss, pain, faith, etc. are all wrapped up in neat little poetry lines, begging the reader to understand and delve into deeper thought.

A Story not Wished to be Read is a misleadingly quick read - it will have you thinking about those words long after you turn the pages.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was very deep and I could relate to some of the poems. Very good writing and such feeling went into all the lines that you know the author really was writing about what was on the inside. As someone who writes poetry I appreciated all the poems in this book and thought it was very well written and deep on all aspects.
