Dead Dogs Don't Bark is the second poetry collection from the acclaimed author, Tolu' A. Akinyemi. With a similar tone and style to Dead Lions Don't Roar (Tolu's first poetry collection) this follow up masterpiece is nothing short of pure motivation.

The poems were enjoyable but not really my style, I feel they would be good for points to raise discussion or for schools. A little simplistic for me and the poems didn’t really speak to me at all. The book is laid out well and into good categories and subsections to help you pick parts to read when you want. Interesting, but not my particular style.

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion

Poems are like kisses; no two people kiss the same way, and no two poems are the same. Thus, no two people can write poems like each other. Every verse has it’s own unique and specific message to the moment it is conveying. That’s why when I was asked to review a poetry collection, I hesitated a bit. Thankfully, my friends, I came around! Want to know more?

This beautiful piece of literature is the third published book from the great writer, Tolu Akinyemi and the second of his discerning series, the first being Dead lions don’t roar. One would easily think Mr. Tolu has an unsettled beef with the animal kingdom or maybe he plans to send all animals on extinction, but instead He delivers a book that I’m sure if the animal kingdom could speak, they would be cheering him on. Picking up on a powerful motivational note, one can’t help but graciously appr ...more

I do believe that Tolu' a Akinyemi reading these poems aloud like he meant them to be read could be great - and make them great to hear and listen to. These poems do not seem to belong written down and read by others though. To me they read like poems written by a 13-year-old pubescent boy who thinks he is old and wise like his 12-year-old peers are not. As I said, seen as the poet does a lot with spoken word, they might sound simply wonderful if he reads them aloud - but they're not for reading ...more

Tolu’ A. Akinyemi’s Dead Dogs Don’t Bark

Reviewed by Realistic Poetry International


Tolu’ A. Akinyemi’s Dead Dogs Don’t Bark is a blend of inspirational and personal poetry.
It brightens the imagination like opening a window to the sun after being closed up in shadows for a long time. The prose runs smoothly and is fast-paced like song Lyrics.

Dead Dogs Don’t Bark wakes up the soul from its apathy, so you’ll want to run towards your dreams.

We all face the problem of procrastination at some point, a

The poems in this collection are elementary, there is little nuance or depth. It reads like motivational words strung together with a rhyming scheme. Sometimes, the bid to rhyme resulted in verses which were illogical and disjointed. Read our full review http://literaryeverything.com/2019/02...
