's review

really liked it

So I bought this book because I was familiar with Natalie Wee's poetry from tumblr. She writes phrases that pick up power like a steam engine train. I don't often write in books, but there were some sections I had to underline because I felt so understood despite the fact I've never even met her. My favorite poems were "On Average, Human Beings Survive 7 Days On Water Alone" and "The Theory of Magic".

The only reason I rated it four stars instead of five because there were a couple of phrases I had to read multiple times because they didn't make sense grammatically and that threw me a little. It could be that I just have a weak understanding of poetry, but I was unsure of what meaning those sentences were suppose to convey, and it may have been a slight case of style over substance?

Honestly, great poetry book from a great poet, and definitely worth checking out!
