I'll start by saying that I am not usually a big fan of poetry. I feel that you almost need to be a poet to understand or appreciate most of the poetry I have attempted to read in the past. From Where I Stand is NOT like that at all.
These are genuine words, of real, often relatable experiences, written in a style that is easy to read. These poems feel very personal and I admire the author for putting himself out there and revealing so much of his inner self.
This was a great taste of what's to come for this author (yeah, yeah pun intended)! For flash fiction this was great. It's not often that I get to read erotica from a man's POV and certainly not from a male author and it was well done.
I was given a copy of this book for an honest review (LoP).
I'm not going to write a synopsis, as there are plenty of those written already, and there's not a whole lot of book to summarise. This was a quick read. The actual story line was okay. Nothing very original, but not too bad, and it had a nice cover. The execution however, was quite poor. There were frequent typos, grammatical errors, changes in tense and POV, and a lack of punctuation, which made it extremely frustrating to read. There were also many things that just didn't make sense and/or were totally superfluous and the writing was simple and disorganised.
I really wanted to like this, and I hate to post negative sounding reviews, but I struggled to find many positives. I really only finished it so that I could write an honest review.
