Publisher's Summary

In his first collection of poetry, Raminder Bajwa offers verse on a wide range of topics that question life, explore fear, and embrace innocence. Through contemplative reflections, Bajwa examines personalities, current affairs, the influence of faith in the modern world, and why humans are either guided by love and honor or misguided by hatred and greed. Through his diverse compilation, Bajwa leads others down an inquisitive path where he poetically searches for answers about happiness, fulfillment, death, victory, and friendship.

Of Angels and Few Lies, Of Everything under Blue Skies shares poems that will enlighten, inspire, and empower others to reflect on their own lives and contributions to the world.

New poetry about everything

What did you like best about Of Angels and Few Lies, of Everything Under Blue Skies? What did you like least?

These had some good commentary on current events and emotions. I didn't like it that everything had to rhyme and some was a little bit forced.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Of Angels and Few Lies, of Everything Under Blue Skies?

there was some humor and some twists in a couple of the poems

What about Pamela Almand’s performance did you like?

She has a great voice for this and made the humor show through where it was needed. It is hard to read poetry I think but this narrator did a good job.

Do you think Of Angels and Few Lies, of Everything Under Blue Skies needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Any additional comments?

It was inteiresting since I have never heard an audiobook of poetry but it was well done and easy to listen to and I liked the author's comments on Middle East events.

Poetry about everything

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

These were interesting takes on events and intersting use of words. I like the ideas the poet conveys but maybe too much rhyming.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Can't do a movie out of this

Any additional comments?

The reader di a good job of trying to make this not the normal singsong poetry reading without going too far the other way. She put some emotion in the poems and some humor in the lighter ones. Bravo!

Contemporary poetry on just about everything

The variety of material

What was one of the most memorable moments of Of Angels and Few Lies, of Everything Under Blue Skies?

The current affairs tie-in and the anguished poetry of the Kurds and Yazidi

What about Pamela Almand’s performance did you like?

Low-pitched and flowing, didn't narrate in a typical poetry sing-song manner, but mre conversational
