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.

Underwhelmed Contemporary Poetry

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

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 meditation accompaniment

This was a powerful piece that hit hard. Her delivery was filled with emotion and attitude.

Specifically, I'd like to point out that while a lot of this was geared towards women, I felt I learned a lot as a man and am grateful for the eloquently expressed perspective. It was a powerful catalyst for self-reflection, particularly in the ways I have treated the women in my life. I have no doubt that this will be on my mind moving forward.

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!

Eye Opening and Healing

I wanted to read this book because I heard from people that it would change your view of things. It has, and I feel a lot different about certain things now. She tells you things you need to hear and she reminds you of things you don’t always remember.
Personally, it was really necessary for me to hear the things Kaur was saying in order for me to grow past a lot of things I’ve been holding onto.
I think it’s really important for women to read this.
