Read on August 28, 2012

I didn't like this, specially because I read it after a love poetry book with a similar approach. I don't like the way love is portrayed here, neither do I like the references to his lover; treating her like a usable object. It was too sexual and inappropriate for me, I had to skip reading lots of lines.

Do not recommend.
