    While Rupi Kaur seems very passionate and while I agree with her politics, content, and message, that doesn't make this writing very good. Some of the poems are excellent and will draw you in, but mainly, they are very overrated in terms of pure quality. I see why her poems are popular, but not why she's considered a 'great' or 'brilliant' writer. She's addressing universal themes, but she doesn't do so in an especially artful/skilled way. I'd say if you aren't a big fan of poetry, this book cou

    I get likes on this review daily and for a long time i've felt like a 3-star review was too generous so I lowered it to 2 today, which is more accurate in hindsight.

    If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, "Oh."

    Honestly, very underwhelming. I'm not sure why people go crazy about this book and say it's gorgeous and it's their favorite book, because honestly, it's very plain. Some poems are just basic sentences with random skips that have no real point, the

    If I could sum up my thoughts about this book, it would just be, "Oh."

    Honestly, very underwhelming. I'm not sure why people go crazy about this book and say it's gorgeous and it's their favorite book, because honestly, it's very plain. Some poems are just basic sentences with random skips that have no real point, they aren't too lyrical, and it's literally just like reading a normal sentence. I expected I would love every page of this, but I only marked 4 poems. This just was nothing new. The concepts in this poem, especially when it rolled around to the feminism aspects, just didn't wow me. An entire poem just about "you don't NEED a man you WANT a man" was just a repeat of things I've been hearing for years. It wasn't interesting, and a lot of the poems just sounded so pretentious because it was just plain text with no punctuation and random skips in the lines being fed to the reader as art. Someone mentioned this was a little too "Tumblr," and I agree. It was a quick read, but just a little bit frustrating because it was too simple, too familiar. The art was nice and a few of the poems were well-written, but for the most part, it seems like very little effort was put into this, which makes me sad because that's such a mean criticism for an artist who puts so much emotion into her work.
