While books of poetry are not on my favorite genres to read, this wasn't half bad. If you're a poetry fan, you'll enjoy it.

A unique collection of intimate prose that shares the depth and soul of the author. Unscrambled Eggs has so many wonderfully written works of art that I hate to call it simple poetry. Thought provoking and intense the author seems to easily bring thoughts and issues to the front of your mind as you realize the truth behind so much of her writing. One of my favorites is the a
Jun 07, 2010 Nadia rated it 5 of 5 stars  ·  (Review from the author)
UNSCRAMBLED EGGS is my first book of poetry, and I hope most people will enjoy this collection--even those who don't necessarily read poems. Percy Bysshe Shelley said it best:

"Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted."

And my hope is, that Unscrambled Eggs will do the same for its readers!

Overall, a satisfying first collection that will no doubt grab the hearts and minds of readers who are looking for clean, simple lines of poetry that speak of soul growth, natural wonders, inspiration in the everyday, and the process of transforming loss into understanding. These poems are wise—and often short, straightforward in their use of language and image—as they reflect on the speaker’s life experiences, people she has known, her cultural ancestry, and the soul lessons she has learned.

Aaron Lazar
Unscrambled Eggs is a lyrical album of profound poetry. It glistens with quiet reflection entangled with sentiments of abandonment. Forlorn, lost, adrift on a sea of real emotions Nadia Brown speaks with words not often combined. Take, for example, the following stanza from Deprived. [return][return]My Crayola lips[return]plum of eyes, cello of body[return]are sick with need.[return][return]Crayola lips. Cello body. Sick with need. In thirteen short words we sense the image of a woman painfully ...more

This book convinced me that I must read more contemporary poetry. Alas, unless it;s in the form of rock music, my clock tends to stop with Milton, Blake, Byron and Browning. This book serves as a timely reminder that the writing of relevant, quality poetry is still much alive and much needed. Keep up the good work.
I received this as a free download from the author and was pleasantly surprised by it. The poetry is thought provoking and spiritual. You can download the E-book from Amazon at no cost. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Unscrambled Eggs by Nadia Brown is a book of poetry with meaning.

I love it when I can read poetry and feel some sort of connection. That is what I got out of Unscrambled Eggs.

Brown did a fantastic job in this compilation, giving meaning to each poem, and many of them I was able to relate to on a personal level.

I thoroughly enjoyed this title and think it would be an excellent book to add to your coffee table. The cover makes you wonder its contents and the poems are so easy to interpret I belie

How do you unscramble eggs? Make an Omelette

Nadia Brown keeps to her word. She has her own poetry style and voice verging on prose at times. She scrambles the eggs then turns them into an omelette of her own emotions for us to puruse of her life. Although I felt like the journey wasn't direct (her eggs seem to get emotionally whipped with some recovery then beaten again, she possitively delivers you an omelette by the end. Who has a life journey that doesn't bounce around with several ups and do

Brown provides a riveting collection of poetry that provides us to the a glimpse into our own dreams, fears, and lives. As artists, writers, and ordinary people we find ourselves in such a dream that we forget about our purpose, our lives, and more importantly sometimes the basics of who we are. Brown provides a glimpse into her own life as well as what we see in our own. Her poetry speaks to people such as myself and I have no doubt that it will speak to you as a reader as well. Written over th ...more

Nadia Brown is a writer who speaks directly from the heart. So much so that many poems in Unscrambled Eggs are pointed, expressing her feelings directly, without ambiguity. Her poetry touches on life’s nuances as well as concrete details of the everyday experience with curiosity and candor.

While there are some grammatical and spelling errors in the text, there is no doubt of the passion that compelled her to publish and share her heart with the world. In her own words (from Words in Unscrambled
Nadia Brown presents a collection of poems that is a rich tapestry of words. 'Unscrambled Eggs", is intimate and compelling coming across sometimes as a confession, then again, reflective. Brown’s poems often speak to her readers in imperatives, giving the reader quite a lot to ponder.

Ms. Brown has a way with a metaphor, creating an interesting expression of imagery that tickles one’s imagination.

I think you will enjoy this book, and like me, you will be revisiting it often. I highly recommend

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Creative, uplifting and an enjoyable read. Filled with comparisons as the author explore her world, people and experiences. Using metaphors in everyday settings creating a colorful collage of different poems in the book.
This collection of evocative, heartfelt and well-crafted poems speak to many aspects of the human experience. Nadia Brown's carefully selected and nuanced words wrangle with weighty topics of identity, human relationships and pain without ever feeling overdone.
I loved this book of poetry. Nadia's expressions in her verses was like...she was singing to me. My emotional responses surprised even me. I just wish I read this book of poetry when I received it as a gift. Thank you Nadia.
