SO, WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

the hurting

the loving

the breaking

the healing

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT

  • Rupi Kaur’s poetry truly embodies what feminism is.
  • It is some of the best free verse poetry I have come across.
  • The format and pages are very aesthetically pleasing- the copy is not just a great read but also looks like a work of art.(For this reason, I recommend that you purchase a physical copy rather than the ebook.)
  • Rupi’s penchant for capturing an ocean of feelings in just a few words is breathtaking.

PER CONTRA

  • Her poetry may not appeal to men. (I think men would love it too, if they tried to give it a chance instead of hiding their emotions behind machismo.)
  • You might need to take a few mental health days after reading the book.

WHO IS IT FOR?

  • Lovers of poetry (specifically spoken word and free verse)
  • Feminists
  • Lovers of emotional works of literature.
