Cracked: Timeless topics of nature courage and endurance by Alice Shapiro

This book is an anthology of poems that vary in length and stanza structure. It covers poems from 2007 and 2008. The subjects of the poems vary widely. The poems are well-written, evoking emotions in the reader. Evoking emotions and creating scenes in the reader is the job of the poet, and Ms. Shapiro does this well with the poems in this book.

Poetry isn’t for everyone, but the poems in this book are easy to read and well worth picking up and reading through the poems for pleasure and a good read. The poems in this book might be able to introduce poetry to new readers. The poems are not those that most people think of when you say poetry. These poems are of varying length and subjects that are something for the masses to read and enjoy, from young to old will enjoy reading these poems.

Take a chance with this book and read some poetry; you might be surprised that you can enjoy poetry. This book has my recommendation for a book that should be read.
