Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The poems in this book are thoughtful, emotional, and insightful. The author's introspection provides an eye-opening analysis of feelings many experience in life, in all types of relationships. I appreciated the vulnerability.
What about Treavor Wagoner and Stacy Thomas ’s performance did you like?
I loved that while the subjects presented in the book were vulnerable, the performances were bold and fearless. You feel the emotions of the words and appreciate the hope in the tone.
I'm not usually and avid fan of poetry, but I found the experience of listening to Treavor read his own words insightful and soothing. It's easy to tell that he is determined and invested in this production, so I'm glad he was able to record it himself and capture it with his own authentic intention. At times, the words seem slightly dour and downtrodden, but they always seem to carry a more uplifting meaning behind them. It's a short listen, but a valuable experience that I am glad I had the opportunity to have.
loved it very descriptive narrative and a very epic book.finished this book in 2days.i will be reading again
I listened to this audiobook in one sitting this weekend and loved it! If you are a fan of poetry, this will be a treat for you. It is beautifully written and eloquently delivered by Treavor Wagoner. Largely written in the time after a breakup, the poems run the gamut of emotions, but never fail to resonate with the listener. It's obvious his is a voice to be heard in a generation of young writers.
