A nice short collection
Poetry is not my thing, so I will straight up say that I only picked this up to read because I recognized the name of Misha Collins. Despite never watching Supernatural, aside from an episode or two in a hotel room, I know who Misha Collins is from social media as a lot of my friends are big fans. I never have high expectations for books written by celebrities, but I love to give them a chance anyway because you never know what might surprise you.
This one surprised me! I can’t really express whether these poems are good, I am far from a critic or expert in the genre, but I can say that I enjoyed reading this, which is more than I can say for 90% of the poetry I have tried before. I know Misha Collins is beloved by his community and I had a thought that maybe this would be overly pretentious, but it’s surprisingly accessible and relatable. I appreciated that he separated the poems into mini sections or chapters all circling around a common theme. For some reason I always feel like I need to read poems one by one or a whole collection at once, so it was nice to be able to read a section on longing, for example, and then be able to put the book aside to digest it a bit.
Again, I don’t know how to judge whether or not the writing is good, most poetry all reads the same to me, but I did enjoy my experience reading this and think it’s worth checking out if you like poetry or Misha Collins.
