Well this was a different​ kind of audiobook! It was lovely​ to hear the poems read by the author, but it also feels like you miss something by not being able to linger over them as easily. Kaur does have a great reading voice. Beautiful poems about feminism, race, love, sex, abuse, many just two lines, a seemingly fleeting thought. I'm curious to know what propelled this to be an NYT bestseller. Not that it doesn't deserve it, but I know so many other poetry collections by women of colour and/or queer women just as good, better even, that no one ever hears about.
