Publisher's Summary

Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.

The audiobook is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes listeners through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

Beautiful and Intense

This book offers an uncompromising perspective of the authors emotions - it is shockingly relatable.
It is a wildly beautiful and intense journey.

Meh

Bought this to see what the hype was about. In my opinion, this is a book that loses pretty much all of its appeal when listened to as an audiobook. I thought that being narrated by Rupi herself, it would be alright. I failed to realize that the charm of Rupi's writing lies mostly in its presentation. As poetry, it doesn't really stand on its own, and it truly needs those little sketches to come to life.

Great short read!!

love the emotion in this book it reminds me of a teenage girl who writes in her journal and as an adult decided to publish her thoughts. I like the play on words that makes you think a little past what something initially means. Good book.

Underwhelmed Contemporary Poetry

Felt like reading a Tumblr of Instagram captions
Personal and easy to listen to ... but not sure. Fan of Anne Carson.

I have no words

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe I need to read poetry more...I did not understand the hype.

Would you ever listen to anything by Rupi Kaur again?

Absolutely not

What three words best describe Rupi Kaur’s voice?

Relaxing. Boring. Soothing?

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Milk and Honey?

n/a

Any additional comments?

In love

I really love that it had what I have been going through and what to say to make me feel better. I will be getting a hard copy to read over and over again!

Such a great book and a great personal connection.

I loved it. I had a good connection to the words and I made it relevant to myself. I made me think about myself as a woman and made me feel so positive towards the end of the book
Excellent!

Amazing

I’m blown away. This book has been on my books to read list for quite some time and I’m glad I read it. I’m really not into poetry, but I highly recommend this book to anyone. I don’t know what it’s like to be in love or experiencing your first time, but I felt like I was there with her. I imagined everything that she mentioned. I’m playing everything through my mind as she is reading it to me and I felt everything. I’m a visual learner, so this audio really helped me.
