I am Dreadfully Sorry!!!


Dear authors, publicists and readers,

I am afraid I have some very bad news regarding my reading list and review requests in 2016.  I am unable to commit to my arranged deadlines as I have a few major setbacks with my health.

I do hope in the future that I can return and honour my commitments regarding your work.

The Adventures of George: By Blair Gowrie


The Adventures of George is a fascinating and entertaining narrative poem that is written entirely in verse and chronicles the adventures and struggles of George, a chef who works in an exclusive New York restaurant along with his five cooks.”

These thirty-one hilarious connected short stories introduce the reader to a number of kaleidoscopic and peculiar characters, which resemble national leaders, terrorists and celebrities who are described in a humorous and satirical way.  I would highly recommend this book to people who are interested in politics and international affairs, knowledge of recent history and have a great sense of humour.

Each story is superbly crafted, original and well-written and a real credit to the author who clearly knows how to inject the right amount of satire to make this a fun and highly entertaining read.

My Ranking: 5 Stars


My Review: Rhymes From Today’s Mind By Luke Daniel & Seriah Sargenton

This is a compilation of eleven short rhymes. Luke Daniel and Seriah Sargenton are philosophical poets, who write a number of slant rhymes, imperfect rhymes, near rhymes, oblique rhymes and off rhymes. These poems are about a number of topics such as love, nature, Mother Nature and the destructive nature of human beings. The poets have used a variety of poetic methods that help to enhance and shape their poems. One of my favourite poems is “Gold Digger” as it is fully charged with raw emotion and the use of some profanity surrounding the negative impact of a relationship that has come to an end.
In conclusion, Luke Daniel and Seriah Sargenton write about a wide range of concerns while applying poetic methods such as human beings destructive nature, smile and personification giving each poem a meaning in its own significance in the world of philosophical poetry.
