Official Review: Desiderata by Aakash Doshi

Please use this sub-forum to discuss any fiction books or series that do not fit into one of the other categories. If the fiction book fits into one the other categories, please use that category instead.
Forum rules
While in the forum's younger and less active days this used to be the one and only forum for "reviews and discussions about specific books", this is now just the subforum "other fiction" in a more well-organized "reviews and discussions about specific books" section with subforums for each genre. Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

Great great job explaining this book! I've never been a huge fan of poetry and based on your review, this definitely won't be the book that swings me over to the poetic side :)

Thanks for the comment. Yeah this would not be my suggestion for poetry to sway you to like it. If you already liked it and just wanted a casual read, then sure. Thanks for stopping by.

I love your honesty! To be fair, I rarely enjoy poetry because of the exact reasons you mentioned above, so I tend to not read them often. This was definitely an excellent review!

Thanks for the comment. It's true unfortunately, good poetry is hard to find these days.

Thanks for your honest which tells this book is collection of poems and it was not all that you expected. However it seems some poems were good.

Yes I enjoyed some of them. I just wished there were more like those ones and less of the others. Thanks for commenting.
