A great variety of different poems that kept me interested and entertained. A very enjoyable reading experience. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a different poet out there who hasn't yet been given enough attention.

Two suggestions. One, it had probably had a few too many poems. I thought a couple of them could have been cut out. I like to have a poetry book maintain my interest all the way through, and this book did for the most part, just a few cuts would have helped. Second, a technical suggestion. In some of his poems, Mr. Agustin had a habit of capitalizing a stanza even if it was a continued sentence from the last stanza. That's an old way of writing that is usually no longer done.

However, I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed this book. I hope I hear much more about Jim Pascual Agustin in the future. I've read more famous poets who are nowhere near as good.
