A Beautiful Composition of Broken

3.71
r.h. Sin, bestselling author of the Whiskey, Words& amp; a Shovel series, returns with a collection of essays and prose meant to remind the wounded that they are, in fact, beautiful in a way society may never comprehend.

A Beautiful Composition of Broken is inspired by some of the events expressed artistically by Samantha King in the bestsellin Born to Love, Cursed to Feel. It serves as a poetic documentary of the lives of people who have been mistreated, misunderstood, and wrongfully labeled in a way that limits them in this world. The writer ’ s most personal volume yet, A Beautiful Composition of Broken builds a conceptual bridge between r.h. Sin ’ s earliest work and his forthcoming series, Planting Gardens in Graves.

I personally enjoyed the poems about love and heartbreak the most, but the other themes were welcome.

This seems like a memoir that any people take into their own magination, so I think it would be great if this was wrote in or annotated.

My favorite essay in this books were: “ a love worth keeping. ”, page 3. “ at 7:22 p.m., to my love. ”, page 9.* “ begin again, again. ”, page 27. “ 1:25. ”, page 40. “ a grave love. ”, page 50. “ twenty 2. ”, page 58. “ the night is coming. ”, page 94. “ Marie. ”, page 110. “ i see a lifetime in brown eyes. ”, page 159. “ in gardens we wait. ”, page 212. “ spring., ” page 343. “ 22 minutes until forever. ”, page 430. “ more than stars. ”, page 445. “ April in New York., ” page 451.I received a complementary review copy through Andrew McMeels Publishing.

As with the previous itle, the pieces in this work did n't feel like solid, polished, final-draft works.

I spend a lot of time looking at Indie poetry and went in hoping to like it but was still sorely disappointed by a compendium of written work that felt lacking in poetic style and which left me feeling dissatisfied.I can see, however, that there may be some readers out there who would find this fascinating, easy to read ( I read it in one sitting right before bed), relatable, and eartfelt.

It was fine at first, but in the beginnin, this was just waaay too long.

If you do n't like his " poems " it 's because you 're either unsuccessful, hate your life, and are jealous of him, or it 's because you 're unwilling to understand the depths of his amazingness.

2. If you do n't like him or if your life is bad it 's because you 're ncapable of loving as deeply as he can.

( A lot of this novel was him just talking about how deep he is.) " 'the slow burning of regret.' ... .you 'll feel what i feltyou 'll sit with your facein your handsand your heart on the floorbecause you lost the greatest thingto ever happen to youme ....

Bonus: there 's another Raymond poem on page 449! 5.

I just prefer not to read a ook where the author spends almost 500 pages talking about how great he is.

I really was n't expecting those and it was great that Sin shone a light on them.Now, the writing is something I 'm undecided on.

Do n't get me wrong, they were important poems, relatable and I enjoyed some of them, but it was as if it was n't poetry.

So I went into this book hoping I would like it, maybe even love it.

But separate the write from his work??

Cheesy love poems aside, he just comes off as a jerk??

ost of my criticsare only critical of mebecause i continueto move beyondthe limitationsthey 've set on my craftand most of the hatei 've received from other writersis derived fromtheir inability to achieve what i 've achievedi am totally acceptingof their defeati 'm completely content with winningand this one where he pretty much states that anyone who doesnt appreciate his work is beneath him; when you insult my wordsyou insult my readersbut insulting my art, meand my supportersdoes nothing but keep youstranded beneath usI took from this what I could, and as I said before, many pieces did resonate with me, and I found them beautiful and thought provoking.But; In saying that, I do n't appreciate being brow beaten or made to feel inferior for liking or disliking something.
