About the Author

Born in New Brunswick, NJ, and later moving to Florida, r.h. Sin comes from a place where a life of pain is the norm and destruction is a constant. Through an early love for reading and writing, r.h. Sin was able to pull away from some of the social distractions that plagued so many of his peers. After returning to the northeast and moving to New York in pursuit of love, the young modern poet found that and much more.

Poetry is a very personal art and that makes it extremely difficult to review. Your enjoyment of poetry is colored by your experiences while your enjoyment of novels is not as connected to your past. Keep that in mind as you read my review. I am torn between loving this collection and just enjoying it. The main impression that sticks with me that I adored some of the poems but that adoration diminished by the length of the collection. There were many poems that repeated the same subject matter with similar methods. It was almost as if this was supposed to be a series of collections instead of just a single book and that lessened my enjoyment overall. However, I ended up having many favorite poems. The collection jumped back and forth between the subjects of heartbreak, love, and defense for his art and fame. It was interesting to see a male perspective of love and longing. (Typically, I read female poets.) I connected to many of the poems and have felt many of the things that were explored. Unfortunately, I felt like some of the poems were generic and not as personal as I want the poetry I read. As for style, it is your standard modern poetry. The poems are typically short and minimal. There are less metaphors and the collection as a whole would be more relatable to the public. I enjoyed the style, but I feel the length and the style of the poetry did not mix well. On a whole, I would probably only recommend this collection to fans of modern poetry and of R.H. Sin. I was a little underwhelmed but still enjoyed it a little bit. I might pick up another collection by him in the future. I received this book from Andrews McMeel Publishing via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was my first poetry collection by R.H. Sin and it will not be my last! Many of the poems touched my heart and they were all so beautiful. Disclaimer: I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review. This opinion is entirely my own.

Thank you to r.h. Sin, Andrews McMeel Publishing, Wednesday Books, and NetGalley for allowing me the extreme pleasure of access to an advanced reader copy of “A Beautiful Composition of Broken” for an honest review. I madly adore r.h. Sin’s work, from Whiskey, Words & a shovel all the way through to Planting Garden’s in Graves. This was another of his works that moved me through so many emotions. Love, pain, anger, rebirth. The ideas about people, and how we put them in boxes, and consequently how we box ourselves through it, is very provoking, in extraordinarily poignant and pointed language.

I don't know if this is poetry or quotes or what exactly it is categorized as, but I wasn't a fan. There are certainly a lot of pieces included in the collection, though it is still easy enough to sit down and read through within a few hours. Lots of general thoughts with nothing truly expounded upon.

a terrible terror of love I it's scary how you can do so much for someone and yet they'd rather focus on what you don't do It's just an okay read but I still enjoyed reading the book. Whiskey Words & a Shovel series was still much better than this though I have only read the Book 1 so far.
