This is a collection of brilliant poetry. I really enjoyed the poet’s voice and her style of writing. Her poetry evokes feelings of longing, youthful exuberance, and memories of days gone by. One of my favorites is “Silent Walk”. I especially like the imagery: while reading it I imagined a woman entering a room, silent and unnoticed. And her “Salute to Maya” is extremely beautiful. Another one of my favorites in “Joy”, which left me feeling as though I need to make sure I leave no room for sorrow or anger in my own life. I would love to hear these poems read out loud. They’re absolutely beautiful.

I'm a great fan of poetry and styles which are similar to Rupi Kaur, Rumi and Robert Frost. I absolutely enjoyed "Unscrambled Eggs" in its free-flowing form and lyrical lines. Each of the poem gets you thinking and tugs at a string in your heart. The thing with poetry is, anyone can freely define them on each of their own terms. You can incorporate your life situations and emotions on that particularly moment and give meaning to the prose. Unscrambled Eggs is also a very easy read with profound messages that I like best in poetries. It doesn't aim to be difficult or verbose, instead it boggles you and pushes you to think and feel genuinely. It's a great read on a rainy day while drinking hot chocolate, cozied up by the fire. Or while lazing around in a hot summer's day beneath a tree. You can read it anywhere and feel its magic. I absolutely would love to give to my friends.

Unscrambled Egg is a poem which written from the in-depth of the heart about life in general. I was totally engrossed with the style of writing from the poet "Nadia Brown". First, I was amazed by the free download on Amazon with such an amazing poem that evolves around ups and downs and teachings of everyday life we live in, Her highly distinct writing style creates an imagery/picture in the mind of every reader that keeps you moved in every way. The poet really depicts the survival of the world. I would not think it twice before recommending this book to everyone.

This is a book that contains a set of poems. The author seems to be in deep thought about the different facets of life. The author explores the possibility that he may have been born before his time, as he is not in agreement with the daily happenings. The author in one of his poems titled “undisturbed” he depicts the human desire that we all have, of desiring that which we do not have and we spend most of the times we spend dreaming of a better life than actually moving into action and starting to build and live a better life. The poems in this book are a great selection as they get one into pondering and asking themselves how best they can live life as the author has posed great fundamental questions that we must all take a moment and just ponder on them.

From the very first poem, the one that gives this book its title, Nadia’s words had me captivated. The simple line of “I spent more time dreaming than living with purpose” perfectly describes where I am in my life so it really hit close to home. She has put things that I have felt personally and that I know has crossed the minds and hearts of many others into beautiful poetic words. She perfectly captures the idea of feeling different from your surroundings and your society in her poem “Sometimes” and expresses the feeling of longing when someone leaves your life in “Deprived”. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It covers a range of emotions in an engaging way.

Her poetry is uplifting and easy to read. After a semester of dense reading, I really needed a relaxing and quick, yet emotional read. Her poetry touches your soul and helps you relate in a way that some poets never allow. Definitely worth checking out this free read and her other work!

Her writing is free form, but her emotions are some that everyone can identify with. I read the whole thing in one sitting--I’m a student and have two weeks before my next semester starts, gimme a break. These are really insightful: from inner turmoil to new perspectives to what everyone knows but no one wants to say. My favorite is “Reference” it reminds me of all the books that I have on my shelf, but it’s the books’ betrayal of her that really gets me. It’s a longing for something that you clung to that keeps letting you down. This is when I couldn’t let myself put the book down! It’s easy to get lost in her poetry and read the whole thing, so save a little bit at a time. I hope she publishes another with a word about the author (I couldn’t find one this time).

In today's busy world of social media accounts, cell phones, photo sharing and private messages, it can be pretty easy to forget that not too long ago, people cared more about the meaning of life and where they fit in, than they cared about checking their "likes" or "views". With thoughtful eloquence, Nadia Brown brings some of life's deepest questions to the surface. Open and vulnerable, she pours her heart and soul into all 66 pages of this book. Evoking feelings of longing for a purpose, of obtaining a simplistic life, holding onto the promise of love and hope for a better tomorrow, I was gripped from beginning to end. Unscrambled Eggs is written with the cadence of a far off place and time, transporting you plot by plot into the poems themselves making you the main character. I dare you to start reading this and be able to put it down and walk away without finishing it; better yet, I dare you to finish this book with the ability to walk away unchanged by it's contents. I know couldn't, especially after reading the poem "Sea Of Poor" Our eyes close like blinds to their quandary how we sit on our hands as we abet their plight their suffering is bolstered with the lost of clemency as we gain more worldly things they are left poverty In a country of gold and ledger lies a sea of poor living in calamity and discontentment

This is a GREAT book of poems about life, suffering, purpose, desires, freedom, and how to search dreams. It is a book that will keep the reader reading. And after finishing the book, the reader will feel nourished and inspired to be more than just ordinary. Nadia Brown wrote these poems over a five year period. They are deeply personal and moving. These poems reflect her experiences, both positive and negative. There is a haunting honesty contained in these poems, one that will encourage readers to assess how meaningful their lives really are. This is really a GREAT thing given that most of our lives are very, very ordinary and mediocre unless we make an effort to make it more than that. Lastly, this is a thought-provoking book that will make the reader read and re-read the book. It is a book about how to live your dreams and finding your own unique purpose. Thank you Nadia for such a wonderful book!

Written with wisdom and insight¿
Nadia Brown writes with deep wisdom and insight in her book of poetry, Unscrambled Eggs. In her poem Unscrambled Eggs, she states what many need to learn: we cannot change the past. Sometimes is a poignant look at life in today¿s culture. Like MS Brown, I sometimes wonder if I should have been born many years earlier. Pebble is one of my favorites in this collection. We are small and insignificant in the vastness of the universe. Brown reminds us of the plight of the poor, regardless of how we attempt to close our eyes to them.
I enjoyed Nadia Brown¿s book immensely. She opens her heart and soul to readers, sharing her deepest thoughts. Brown has great artistic talent. I encourage her to continue her efforts.

Nadia Brown has written an exceptional book of poetry that presents itself with a true honesty that is sometimes lost in today's world. The emotion filling the pages thrums with a raw intensity - a glittering feast of life and thought. Brown has taken real life and put it before the reader without the pretense of typical poetry. No fancy rythmes or pretty phrases. Just an honest dish served up - grease and all. Rarely does one read a writer with such honest talent for drawing on the emotion, the pulse, of life.

When I read Unscramble eggs it was moving, the author wrote like she experience what she canvas on paper. I envision what she experience also could relate back to my own background. I would recommend this book.

Nadia Brown has written a very thought provoking book of poetry, one that will truly challenge the mind and its ability to comprehend a much deeper venue of thoughts. These thoughts are what Nadia brings to her readers through her book, Unscrambled eggs. Nadia Brown resides with her family in Miami, Florida. Through Nadia Browns poetry, she reveals her true spiritual insights. She shares experiences of her past and portrays them through exceptional writing skills. Her writing style is unique and refreshing. Unscrambles Eggs is a definite must to read for anyone that desires a challenge of the mind. One of my personnel favorites is the poem titled, 'Perfect'. I myself am somewhat of a perfectionist, and felt as if Nadia was describing me through her writings. I do not doubt that most of her readers have experienced a similar feeling when reading Unscrambled Eggs. Thank you Nadia brown for introducing my mind to your unique words of life!

Unscrambled Eggs is a lyrical album of profound poetry. It glistens with quiet reflection entangled with sentiments of abandonment. Forlorn, lost, adrift on a sea of real emotions ¿ Nadia Brown speaks with words not often combined. Take, for example, the following stanza from ¿Deprived.¿ 'My Crayola lips plum of eyes, cello of body are sick with need.' Crayola lips. Cello body. Sick with need. In thirteen short words we sense the image of a woman painfully alone and uncomfortable in her body. In the last stanza, we are assured of this stinging vision. 'A rousing verse, a mangled rose, a sigh of jazz all sings your absence' Nadia Brown¿s imagery is strong and unexpected. The combinations of words are surprising, refreshing. These are not common poems. The tang of gritty despondency permeates the pages, in spite of the artistic composition. There is no pretense here. No false polish, cute rhyming schemes, nor purposeful cadence. In such an environment, only the imagery stands alone, spilling honest visions on the page. Among the sixty verses lies another favorite, ¿There Were No Bells.¿ 'She said there were no bells, only her clam hands and fretful feet rattled in the eve. The sirens would not go off nor did her knees faint from the tie-dye of bliss She felt no quakes, no bumble bees, no panic sharks reeling in the pint of her belly. Not once did her shoelace hair curl like ringlets not once did she hear bells.' Uncommon pairings, curious verbs, and a splash of liberating spirit develop as the poetry travels through time. As Ms. Brown works through emotions of despair, a stronger woman evolves. The work sings of survival while painting distinctive images of the world. Examine these vivid phrases from ¿Fishing for Salmon.¿ 'a laundry of birds gather in a fold like sheep like a fistful of jellybeans in a bottle' and: 'there is some wind flossing back and forth between homes' This unpretentious yet moving collection of poetry will earn a place of honor on your bookshelf. Don¿t be surprised if you are drawn to reread it over and over again.

What a delight it was to read from 'Unsrambled Eggs'. The author, Nadia Brown, shows a maturity in her writing, far beyond her years. She delves into what life is all about for most of us, and puts it on our plate, face up. A highly suggested read:)
