Wonderful review! It was a great look into the book. I'm not sure I wouod read it though. Poetry has never been a strong suit of mine.

Between The Lines There Lies A story Of Me is a lovely and meaningful journey of the young Sabaine's life, and one that must be read and experienced for oneself in order to be understood and enjoyed. Your thoughtful and comprehensive review explains each step of her journey in detail, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Thank you for a lovely review!!!

Latest Review: "The Understanding" by Dennis Pennefather

Post by Rachel1019 » 18 Oct 2016, 20:21

This was a great review. I really enjoyed reading the first poem of this book. I appreciate your ideas about how the rest of the book pans out. I don't like reading in particular, but I found myself enjoying the dismal feeling of this first poem. Thank you for the warning about the fact that not all of the poems are along the same lines. I would have been disappointed if I got into the the book and then discovered that they were not all poems that I would enjoy.

I absolutely loved your review - very well written and insightful. You did such a good job of giving constructive criticism while highlighting the things that made the book special. The collection seems so personal with the author's thoughts about her harsh home life and journey to self-acceptance. Although I didn't care for the long, rambling feel of the first poem, I have decided to give the book a second chance after reading your review. Well done!

I would say there was a lot of self introspection done on her part. she not only challenged herself with those thoughts but we the readers I think were challenged to reflect as well.

Poetry books are always difficult to review, and you did a great job with this one. Even though there was that one section that didn't seem to fit well with the rest, but I'm glad you were able to find another, more enjoyable section in the haiku.

Awesome review!! I love memoirs but have not read one in this style before. I'm interested to see what her life threw at her... and what you were describing with the content changes and font change - interesting.. thanks for the great review! :)

I cannot wait to read Between the Lines There Lies a Story of Me cover to cover. I like to read about poetry, so this book will touch me greatly being about a poet. I think it looks written very meticulously, and rate it high.

Great review, it sounds like a great read for a young adult. I don't think I will be adding this to my reading list.

Great review! This gives good insight into the book with strong visual words, pulling the skimming reader in without the paragraphs feeling monotonous in tone. I look forward to checking out Sabrina's poetry following your review.
