    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Better than most poetry collections"

    I generally can’t listen to very much audible poetry at a sitting, but I really enjoyed listening to this collection. The introduction is a bit boring and is skippable (unless you care). There is a wide range of subjects and tones, making this less monolithic than some collections.
