Book Report: Stardust and Fire By Neha Kabra
Stardust and Fire
Stardust and fire were sent to me by the author for an honest review. 🙂
To be honest this is one of my first all poetry book, which is why I don’t really know honest or how well I can review it.
Still a reader has to try.
What is the book about?
Stardust and Fire revolve around a lover’s journey through love, betrayal and to finding love again. A journey of birth and rebirth as one heals and discovers the stardust inside, only to realize how we are no longer human.
I will start with sharing some of the poems in the book and then we can get into what I think about them.
P.S. I dog-eared the pages. Hate me? xD
“Fresh air feels like a stranger;
you suffocated me
that I nearly forgot
how to breathe.”
to be happy is to be
independent of the
dependency on love
FOREVER LOSES MEANING
When I look back
I guess it was our race
towards the perfect forever
where we eventually lost each other
between the hills
of the present and past
no longer had a meaning
The heart maybe
undoubtebly the most selfish creation,
who else can enter
the slaughter house of love
So. These were the ones that I liked from all of the others.
I haven’t read as many poems as to review and say oh this is good or it is bad. Hence, I would rather talk about the concept of the book. The book goes from a heartbreak to finding love then getting her heart broken and then finding love again.
Which I think is why it made it attractive for me to pick it up in the first place. I wouldn’t say it did justice to the feelings or the emotions, but the poems were heartfelt, they were raw and written straight from the heart.
The language was simple and crisp also almost all the poems were written within a few words which is what I like.
The book is simple. The poems are for people have been through heartbreak, for people who are looking for hope.
Rating: 3/5 stars
