    Poems full of humanity, with vivid, evocative descriptions. Often intimate, at times downright sexy. Christian’s use of irony in a number of her poems I found particularly striking and effective.

    I took my time to enjoy these poems. They were generally very short and incredibly well written. I’m surprised Christian’s name isn’t more well known.

    There are many strong poems in this poetry collection. However, the Kindle version of this book was difficult to read. The words are scrunched up and have no spaces. Since I had difficulty reading the poetry collection, I didn't fully enjoy the poems. Regardless, the quality of the writing is noticeable. There are many strong poems in this poetry collection.

    Remarkable, heartbreaking, painterly. Christian is a stunning talent and her poetry has an emotional reach that is fathoms deep.
