Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forever a spot on my shelf This is a book that I will carry with me always. Instead of reading it cover to cover, I often flip through the pages and meditate on the passages I land on. I think it is truly beautiful, and a work of art.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and beautiful The photos associated with the poems are as beautiful as the poems are. The mix of emotions behind the poems are beautiful and it is easily relateable to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite. I've read this book about 5 times, and ever single time I read it, it gives my life a new meaning. It is written in a way where everyone can relate to it, and really gets you thinking about your own self and those around you. The author himself makes it even better!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok Although there are couple really good poems it wasn't my favourite. I don't know, I found it very cliche. Definitely not worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful My first poetry book and it's quite beautiful. Love the artsy photographs and how much the author is trying to say with few words. To be honest though, I follow him on IG so I found this book a little on the pricey side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I Read The Paperback First Loved loved loved this and initially read it in ebook format. After I picked it up in store and felt the pages and looked at vivid pictures definitely regretted not reading the physical copy first. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just bought it I am in the middle of reading this but it is one of my favorite by far. Mixing the descriptive writing with photography given the reader more then their minds to imagine what the writer means is a different way to view poetry. Adding photographs lets the reader explore different theories the the author is trying explain through the mystery of poems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this collection so much. I'm not one for poetry usually, but this was so lovely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh Didn't really enjoy this one too much. Only about 5 out of 200 poems were really really good. The price is pretty outrageous for the amount of words in this book, all the poems are quite short - you could probably finish it in one hour. The photography/pictures were not that great either, mostly blurry and unrelated to the poems. The quality of the book is great though, nice pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book I bought this for myself over a year ago and it's one of those books I keep going back to. It's art from cover to cover and perfect for a nice rainy day in, or at a coffee shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my favourite books of all time. I was given this book as a gift from a dear friend, and since then I have read it countless times. I often share excerpts of the book with friends and loved ones. It's great to have in your collection because you can simply pick it up and start off on any page you wish. It will forever be in my collection.
