Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

Unfortunately, I didn’t think much of this book – it was cliche and had a weird layout, and it read like a teenager’s angsty emo poems about how much they hate life and other people. I don’t have a problem with that when it’s done well, but it’s hard to get it right and I don’t think the author succeeded. I wouldn’t say it’s worth buying this; it’s half worth reading it for free.

***** Just An Opinion!
I decided not to purchase a copy of this book because there is no available E-Book on Amazon. On top of this, there is something very fishy with this book. There are all of two 5 star reviews on Amazon, and here on Goodreads there are no less than seventy-seven. And that does not include the numerous three and four star reviews. Yes, there are a couple of one star reviews as well, but this whole thing looks rather doctored to me. Sorry, but I just don't believe the hype.

I decided to check out some modern poetry and a friend told me about, Exotic Neurotic. This a book of high aesthetic value. I like the visuals of the things described in it. Some parts of the poems or certain poems are more extreme than other ones when it comes to subject matter and language use. The poetry within the book will take you on an up and down journey. Overall this is a book worth reading and I really enjoyed it.

This work of modernist literature is penetrative. It's raw and original. Graceful, yet chaotic. I find a lot of the subject matter highly relatable. I think most people would, at least to a degree. Poetically, I love the creative themes of the poems, intellectual repertoire, rhymes, arrangements, and rhythmic patterns.

Singleton's poetry is scintillating. I enjoyed the vivid imagery and emotions that each poem evoked within me. The book's overall thematic angle; I feel, is best described as tenebrous and rebellious.

Spam marketing on goodreads. Pathetic.

This book is refreshingly honest. It's full of sincerity while describing the highs or lows of life.
