Book Review:
The Remains by Annie Freud

Title: The Remains
Author: Annie Freud
Published: 2015
Language: English
Pages: 96
Rating: 2/5

A collection of poetry sprung from the author finding broken china in her garden.

After reading two of this author's poetry collection, I hereby resign my attempt to understand it.

This poetry simply isn't my cup of tea, because most of the time, I just don't get it. I feel about this what I often feel about modern art; I am baffled, confused and I need an explanation. But poetry to me shouldn't need an explanation, there should be something that all people can understand and connect with. This doesn't have that for me.

That being said, I enjoyed this more than I enjoyed her other collection. I really liked the pages with artwork on them and I even saw some of it's connection to the poems, which was nice.

Overall, this didn't make an impression on me. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're really into this kind of poetry.
