I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I opened this book, but what a Gem it turned out to be. A collection of Prose and Poetry written within a range of styles around the themes of friendship and relationships. The book is written with an aching honesty about the author's experiences, that immediately draws you in, and rather than just identifying with the author, begins to make you really think about your own life and your own actions and intentions. At first glance it may appear deceptively simple and almost naïve, but in actuality this book uses this simplicity as a method of stealthily delivering the point behind our own blasé and defensive attitudes. You soon start to realise this book has a lot of levels and that each reveals something else you hadn't consciously realised about your attitudes or feelings. As well as being very therapeutic if you have ever been hurt or let down by others in this arena, overall, if you want to be challenged and provoked into thinking about the whole subject of friendship take a chance on this - A superb read!Was this review helpful?
