    Greatest...

    I love this book. My brother had to read this book for high school and he gave all his old books to me.. I am not a big fan of poetry which is why this book surprised me so!

    What an awesome book

    This was such a great book. It really gives insight into the many different paths that people take in life. To the town drunkard to the town's wealthiest man, this book aptly portrays the many different aspects of town life. The conclusion in the epilogue is also fantastic, and very thought-provoking.

    An enlightening experience

    I first read excerpts from this book while doing an assignment for acting class in college. It is an awesome collection of poetry! This collection really made me stop and think about life and make a few evaluations. While there are some elements I do not agree with wholeheartedly, the poems are quite enlightening for the most part. As you read, think about what you would say if you had fifteen or so lines in which to sum up your whole life....
