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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
