I'm very 50/50 on this book, the poetry was hit and miss; at some stages of the book the poetry is good and then in some its meh.
The book follows the story of Sevin as he tells the reader about his life with the use of poems. Sevin takes the reader through his life from a misunderstood young child to a temperamental adolescent. The book ends with a look into an adult Sevin, who despite all his flaws and selfish behavior as a young man actually turned out to be a descent guy.
At the end of the book, you really want a sequel, you want to know how he came to mature and become the man we see at the end of the book. The story is good and the character Sevin is relatable, his upbringing is comparable to many people out there.
Rating 2.5 out of 5
