Publisher's Summary

An intimate and lovely reading by the author herself, Between You and These Bones will bring you wonder and peace just by listening. 

From celebrated New Zealand poetess F.D. Soul comes her highly anticipated second collection of poetry, prose, illustrations, and wisdom. Her messages grapple with relationships: interpersonal relationships, her relationship with herself, and the relationship between poetry and the world. Unchaptered and raw, Between You and These Bones plays much like a memoir or meditation yet maintains all the musicality of poetry. “This book is a garden, a hymn, a forgiveness. A falling back in love. It is all the pieces of light you forgot you held, remembered.” 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great content, poor structure

Wonderful collection of poems read by the author herself, however due to everything being split between two chapters, about an hour for each, some of the shorter poems seemed to fade into the background of the general vibe of the book, and concentrating on individual lines, or poems, could be challenging. Having a hundred little chapters seems preferable, and easier to keep track of.

I found the writing itself to be a beautiful example of contemporary poetry, deeply personal and structured in a way that, most importantly, makes sense to the author. However appreciating it without having the words written right in front of me was difficult.

I would definitely like a physical copy of these poems, especially since I feel like the depth of them cannot be appreciated by simply listening to two hours of non-stop narration. So in this sense, I feel like the audiobook is a good companion piece for the actual book.
